Couple with dead body in car arrested for child endangerment

August 17, 2017

 

Darwin Keith Alaskari and Sherrie Lynn Boggess

San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested the man and woman who were found with a dead body inside their SUV in Cayucos. However, it remains unclear how the deceased person died and how his body ended up in the vehicle.

Darwin Keith Alaskari, 59, and his wife Sherrie Lynn Boggess, 50, are in San Luis Obispo County Jail on child endangerment and other unrelated charges. The couple, whom sheriff’s officials describe as transients from the Bakersfield area, were traveling in an SUV with their 13-year-old daughter and the decaying body.

Shortly before 3 p.m. on Tuesday, deputies were patrolling Cayucos when they noticed the SUV parked in the wrong direction in the 100 block of F Street. The deputies spoke with the occupants of the vehicle and noticed a strong odor coming from the back of the SUV.

The deputies found the body and a death investigation ensued. The preliminary investigation indicates the deceased person was a longtime acquaintance of the Bakersfield couple, according to the sheriff’s office.

Investigators say both Alaskari and Boggess have ties to the local area, but it is not yet known why they were in Cayucos. Deputies arrested Alaskari and Boggess for felony child endangerment and misdemeanor warrants. Child Welfare Services took custody of their teen.

Alaskari and Boggess placed their daughter in a dangerous situation, being that she was in close proximity to decomposing human remains, a sheriff’s office press release states. Also, illegal narcotics and paraphernalia were readily accessible to the teen, according to the sheriff’s office.

Coroner’s officials conducted an autopsy on Wednesday. An investigation into the case is ongoing.

Both Alaskari and Boggess remain in custody, as of Thursday morning. Alaskari’s bail is set at $105,000, while Boggess remains in jail with bail set at $150,000.

Getting removed from those crazy people is the best thing that could ever happen to that 13 year old. Maybe she can have a real chance at a normal life. You know, a house, food, ride around without rotting corpses….


LAH

We thought the cat brought in a dead animal or something, we are just a few blocks from where they found these Idiots! I am angry these tweek head – low lives brought their drama Here! They deserve to be locked up. Guaranteed they were tweaking or zoning and didn’t want to get caught with the dope, so far gone they put their daughter through this unthinkable situation… thank Goodness she is away from these freaky people!

How about illegal transport and abuse of a corpse?

Seems like a bogus charge to me.

Ya, I doubt that. What danger? Danger of being grossed out?

Now, this I believe.

Danger of psychological damage such as PTSD. And danger in general–who is to know she was not next?

How long are we talking regarding the body in the back seat–48hrs.? / a week?/ a month?

Long enough for the stench to be noticed by LE

The question of the hour is: Will the doctor performing the autopsy get the cause of death correct? He messed up big time with Andrew Holland.

The fact that these two have a child is frightening enough.

Funny. They should have been arrested and charged for that too.
