Posted August 17

— Two people believed to be from the Bakersfield area were arrested in Cayucos on Tuesday, after San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's deputies found a dead body in their car.

Deputies noticed Jeep SUV pulled over on the wrong side of the road in a Cayucos neighborhood around 2:30 p.m. When they got closer to the car, that was when they smelled something foul, said Tony Cipolla with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies found a decomposing male body in the back cargo area of the car, as well as illegal narcotics and paraphenila near a 13-year-old girl.

Deputies arrested Darwin Keith Alaskari and his wife Sherrie Lynn Boggess. They identified the 13-year-old girl as their daughter. Alaskari, 59 and Boggess, 50 are transients from the Bakersfield area, deputies said.

Alaskari and Boggess were long-time acquaintences of the deceased male, Cipolla said. The sheriff's office is currently investigating why they had the dead body and what exactly they were doing in Cayucos.

Alaskari and Boggess were arrested for felony child endangerment and misdemeanor warrants. Their 13-year-old daughter was put in the care of child protective services.
