Investigators Arrest Accessory in Triple Homicide

Modesto, CA- Modesto Police detectives continue to follow leads and gather evidence as they work on identifying the suspect or suspects responsible for the killing of three people inside an east Modesto home earlier this year. This afternoon, detectives arrested an accessory in this triple homicide.

On Saturday, March 3, 2012, at about 3:42 a.m., Modesto Police officers were called to a residence in the 700 block of N. McClure Road in east Modesto on a report of a shooting. When officers entered the residence, they located three victims, 19-year-old Alyxandra Tellez, 31-year-old Edward Joseph Reinig, and 16-year-old David Siebels, each of whom had suffered fatal gunshot wounds. A fourth victim, an 18-year-old female who was hiding in the home, was able to elude the attacker(s). She was able to call 911 and report the crime.

Investigators have been trying to determine if this assault may have been related to an earlier domestic violence case involving the same 18-year-old female back in January. In that case, it was alleged the 18-year-old female was assaulted and held against her will for several days by the victim’s then boyfriend, 31-year-old Richard Garibay, a.k.a. Richard Garcia, and a friend of Garibay, 30-year-old Armando Osegueda. At this point in the investigation both Garibay and Osegueda are considered “persons of interest”.

During the course of this investigation, homicide detectives have spoken to 20-year-old Malissa Rose Boldroff, the girlfriend of Osegueda, in order to determine Osegueda’s whereabouts the night of the triple homicide. During questioning, Boldroff has provided conflicting and misleading statements to detectives. Investigators believe Boldroff is intentionally providing false information in order to mislead and cover up facts about this homicide and the individuals involved. .

This afternoon investigators contacted Boldroff at the Stanislaus County Courthouse. Boldroff was present at a court hearing involving Garibay and Osegueda related to a torture case from Ceres. Boldroff was interviewed at the Modesto Police Station before being arrested and booked into the Stanislaus County Jail for one count of accessory to murder.

This remains an active criminal investigation and homicide detectives have yet to determine the reason or motive for the killings.
