More information has surfaced regarding the Fort Polk infantryman who was caught hauling his wife’s dead body in the back of a car driven by his mistress- as her two children sat in the back seat.
22-year-old Corporal Logan Kyle was handed over to the US Army by the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office yesterday after the Louisiana law enforcement agency discovered the body of his wife in the trunk of a car.
“This was certainly an interesting investigation,” said Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso. “In many cases, we don’t get a call until the body is actually found. We actually got this one before it was dumped which made it easier.”
The vehicle was being driven by 24-year-old Sarah Parker, who confessed to knowing about the body and had her two toddlers in the back seat.
According to KALB, Kyle’s wife, 22-year-old Shelena Kyle- was discovered in the trunk, and her identity was withheld by authorities until the next-of-kin was notified.
While Parker was stripped of her children and sent to the Calcasieu Correctional Center, Corporal Kyle was escorted to Fort Polk, where the crime is to be investigated by Army CID investigators.
The murder is believed to have taken place on the installation.
Kyle is a member of the 10th Mountain Division’s 3rd Brigade Combat Team, which is ironically based in the swampy terrain of Fort Polk. A four-year veteran of the armed services, Kyle is an infantry fire team leader.
3rd BCT Commander Colonel Kendall Clarke expressed his unit’s sympathies in a statement.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of this Patriot Family member. She was a member of our family and her death affects us all,” Clark said. “We send our most sincere condolences to her family and friends.”
Parker’s two children, ages 1 and 2, were taken into state custody by the Department of Children & Family Services.
The capture of Kyle and Parker may not have been possible had it not been for the quick actions of the Calcasieu Sheriff’s Office, who had had been alerted by the Beauregard Sheriff’s Office that they could be headed into their jurisdiction.
Logan and Shelena had been married for around two years.
