After 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 a neighbor spoke out about the couple.

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 were said to be transients from the Bakersfield area, according to deputies.

However, a neighbor of the couple recognized their mugshots and identified them as her neighbors who lived in a trailer park on South Union Avenue. The neighbor, Darlene Glenn, said that they have lived in this park for almost a year. They even have mail delivered there.

Not only were the couple and the daughter living at the trailer park but so was another male and an older male in a wheelchair. According to Glenn, Boggess said that was her father.

Glenn, said that she smelled something "like death" right before the U-Haul and the vehicle used to pull it showed up. She also says that she saw the couple carrying "something wrapped in a sheet that looked very heavy."

After this incident Glenn says that she does feel unsafe living in the neighborhood she has lived in for so long because she couldn't believe something like this was happening so close to her home.

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.

Once the autopsy report of the dead body is finished additional charges may be added for Alaskari and Boggess if foul play was involved. However, the finished report will take between six and eight weeks to complete. And no court date has been set yet.
