Update: Police found a Nevada 5-year-old in the storage locker who had been dead for nearly two weeks, according to an affidavit obtained by KCRA. Tyler Anderson is still being held in Sacramento County Main Jail, while his wife, Averyauna Anderson, is being held in Washoe County Jail on suspicion of child abuse with substantial bodily harm.
A Nevada man was arrested this week after a dead body was found in a Sacramento storage locker that held the suspect's belongings, police said Friday.
Tyler Anderson, 23, was arrested Wednesday and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail that night on suspicion of manslaughter, according to Sacramento police and the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department booking log. He is being held without bail.
Police officers responded Tuesday night around 11:09 p.m. to the 1800 block of Glenrose Avenue, where the only storage facility is a U-Haul Moving and Storage facility. They were called out after someone reported a dead body in a storage unit at the rental location along Business 80 just northeast of El Camino Avenue.
Officers found the dead body when they arrived. Homicide detectives and crime scene investigators took over the case, police said.
They determined that Tyler and Averyauna Anderson of Nevada owned property inside the storage unit, and the Reno Police Department joined Sacramento authorities in the investigation.
Averyauna Anderson, 23, was arrested Wednesday and is being held on charges of child abuse with substantial bodily harm and destroying/concealing evidence.
Sacramento County has not released the victim's identity, but an affidavit obtained by KCRA says the Andersons allegedly had kept the body of 5-year-old Cali Anderson in a closet since May 4 before driving her remains to the storage locker.
