Mystery as DISMEMBERED body is found on California golf course as couple arrested

A CALIFORNIA couple have been arrested after a dismembered body was found dumped in a lake on a golf course, say cops.

Kimberly Machleit, 35, and Donald Anderson, 37, were taken into custody after a dive team found the remains at Blacklake Golf Course in Nipomo.

The authorities have not named the dead person but did reveal the "victim" had been missing since 2018.

Machleit, of Santa Maria, was arrested on suspicion of murder with special circumstances and conspiracy, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff Office.

Anderson, also of Santa Maria, was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory to murder.

They are both being held on bonds and cops say the investigation is ongoing.

“It appears that the victim was murdered in the city of Santa Maria and dismembered before being disposed of at the golf course in December 2018,” said the sheriff’s office.

They added the victim was known to the suspects, they added in a statement released to the press.

No other details were provided about the role the pair may or may not haver played in the death.

According to CBS 13, the suspects and a third person were released on bail following an arrest last month on drug and weapons charges.
