California Country Musician, Wife Found Dead Near Mojave Desert

A country guitarist and his wife were found dead on a road near the Mojave Desert by California authorities last week.

The Bakersfield Californian reported that Larry and Betty Petree, who had been married for 60 years, were found dead in their vehicle in a remote area of Kern County, according to the performer’s cousin Laurie Sanders.

“At this moment, I’m not sure exactly what happened,” Sanders told the outlet. “What were they doing out there? They don’t travel that far away from home.”

Sanders noted that Petree got lost on his way to a music gig weeks ago.

Kern County Sheriff’s Office deputies said in a press release that they found Larry Petree sitting in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, and found Betty Petree leaning against the rear tire, the department said in a press release. Homicide detectives were not called to the scene, and KCSO did not immediately identify the bodies as belonging to the Petrees.
