Human Remains Recovered From Lake At Central Coast Golf Course; Two People Arrested


A 2018 missing persons case has led to a grim discovery on the Central Coast, and the arrest of two people on murder related charges.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s detectives say evidence led to a search by divers of a lake at a San Luis Obispo County golf course.  Human remains were recovered from the Blacklake Golf Course in Nipomo.

Investigators say two people have been taken into custody in connection with the case.  Kimberly Machleit was arrested for murder and conspiracy, and Donald Anderson was arrested for being an accessory in the case. 

Detectives say the two Santa Maria residents knew the victim, who had been murdered and dismembered before being dumped at the golf course.  The name of the victim hasn’t been released yet.
