Ceres found dead with their dog near crash scene, police say

Police said a car struck and killed a former high school football coach from the area and his girlfriend when they were walking their dog in San Luis Obispo. The couple both worked at a Modesto vineyard.

The two were recognised by a coroner as residents of San Luis Obispo, Matthew Chachere, 39, and Jennifer Besser, 36.

According to the San Luis Obispo Police Department, a 24-year-old man struck a bridge at Sacramento Drive on November 21. When police arrived, they found no evidence of a DUI or other wrongdoing, so they released the driver.

Less than 24 hours later, dispatch was informed of a dead dog close to the incident. Two San Luis Obispo residents who were supposed to spend the holidays in Modesto but had not shown up were the subject of a missing person's complaint the same evening.

Police received images of the couple and their dog from family members. The dead dog's owner was the missing residents, a dispatcher realised at that point.

When police arrived back at the scene of the crash, they discovered the two bodies hidden beneath the undergrowth. According to San Luis Obispo police, the motorist struck Chachere, Besser, and their dog and left them for dead.
