Sunday night at approximately 9:30 p.m. the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana received a call stating that a woman was driving around with a dead body in her trunk.

A short time later deputies located the car traveling on North Franklin Street in Lake Charles and conducted a stop. While searching the car deputies located a deceased woman in the trunk of the car. Deputies made contact with the driver, Sarah M. Parker, 24, 246 Gilmore Road, B, Lake Charles, and the passenger, Logan T. Kyle, 22, Fort Polk, LA, an active duty soldier who was the husband of the deceased woman found in the trunk.

Further investigation by CPSO detectives revealed the woman had been killed by Kyle at Fort Polk. Detectives also learned Parker was aware Kyle killed the woman and attempted to aid him with the disposal and concealment of her body.

Parker was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with obstruction of justice; and failure to report a homicide. Her bond is still pending.

Parker's two children, ages 1 and 2, who were also in the car, were taken into state custody by the Department of Children & Family Services.

CPSO detectives contacted the U.S. Army CID in reference to the homicide happening in Fort Polk. They picked up Kyle, who was detained at CPSO and will be investigating the homicide. CPSO Detective Keeba Barber is the lead investigator on this case.

The commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard called the ongoing partial government shutdown "unacceptable" following reports that some Coast Guardsmen are relying on donations from food pantries while their regular paychecks remain on hold.

"We're five-plus weeks into the anxiety and stress of this government lapse and your non-pay," Adm. Karl Schultz said in a video message to service members. "You, as members of the armed forces, should not be expected to shoulder this burden."

Navy Secretary Richard V. Spencer said earlier this month that he had bet his job on getting all the Ford's elevators to work, telling President Donald Trump that the project would be done by this summer "or you can fire me."
