Officers found the body of a child after responding to a storage facility in Sacramento on Tuesday night. The body was inside of a storage unit that belongs to Nevada residents Tyler and Averyauna Anderson, according to the Sacramento Police Department.
According to the Reno Police Department, Tyler’s 5-year-old daughter died at some point in the last two weeks inside of Tyler’s and his wife Averyauna’s apartment in Reno.

Investigators revealed that the child had been severely neglected prior to her death. On Wednesday, detectives arrested Tyler Anderson. Investigators say Averyauna Anderson is in custody facing two charges, child abuse and destroying or concealing evidence.
The cause of death was not known as of Friday evening.
