A Kentucky couple has been jailed after the body of a small child was found inside of their rented storage unit.

Authorities in Daviess County, Kentucky said that they received a missing persons report for a child on September 30, 2022. That missing persons investigation turned into a murder investigation shortly thereafter.

According to a press release, Daviess County deputies received a complaint from an unknown caller. The caller told authorities that Jose Gomez-Alvarez and Cheyanne Porter care for several children, however, one girl hadn’t been with them for some time.

Officials say on Monday, October 3 information led them to a storage facility on New Hartford Road. After obtaining a search warrant for the unit, officials say they found a tote with suspected human remains inside. The Daviess County coroner was contacted for an autopsy and future positive identification. Reports say that Porter is Gomez-Alvarez’s girlfriend and is the children’s father.

Warrants were obtained on Gomez-Alvarez and Porter for tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse, according to police.

Both Gomez-Alvarez and Porter were later found and arrested in Berea, Kentucky. According to a press release, both are in the process of being moved to the Daviess County Detention Center.

There has been no cause of death released and the investigation is on-going.
