Soldier based at Louisiana's Fort Polk found with wife's body in trunk, kids in car

Source: The Associated Press

LAKE CHARLES, La. — Authorities say a soldier based in Louisiana was arrested in a car with his wife’s body in the trunk, their two toddlers in the car, and his girlfriend driving.

A Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office statement says 22-year-old Logan Kyle was turned over to Army investigators at Fort Polk; 24-year-old Sarah Parker of Lake Charles was arrested on charges including failure to report a homicide; and the 1- and 2-year-old children are in state custody.

Fort Polk spokeswoman Kim Reichsling says Kyle is in custody. She says she cannot release his wife's name until Tuesday because Army regulations require a 24-hour wait after notifying next-of-kin.

The sheriff’s office says deputies got a tip about a woman with a dead body in her trunk and stopped Parker’s car Sunday night.

Who hasn't been caught with their wife's body in the trunk of a car being driven by your girlfriend?

Lets not jump to conclusions. It's possible she just fell in there and couldn't get out.

Geesh, what a guy! At least the kids are too young to have any memory of this when they grow up.

I feel so much pain for those little children who are not going to have their mother or father. The father obviously not much of a loss but those children losing their mother. IN THE CAR THAT THEIR MOTHER WAS IN THE TRUNK IN!!! How much did they see and hear?
