A woman who Modesto police believed harbored, concealed or aided "people of interest" in the murders of three people in east Modesto has been arrested in North Carolina.

Abbygail Castillo, 26, turned herself in at the Greenville Police Department after receiving pressure from family and friends following a press release sent out by police Wednesday, according to Officer Scott Nelson of the Modesto Police Department.

Castillo was booked into the Pitt County Detention Center, where she will await extradition back to California.

Nobody has been charged in the March shooting deaths of 19-year-old Alyxandra Tellez, 31-year-old Edward Joseph Reinig and 16-year-old David Siebels.

They were killed inside a home on North McClure Road across the street from Creekside Golf Course.

Two others have been arrested on suspicion of accessory to murder.

Castillo, along with Malissa Boldroff, 20, and Jose Manuel Obregon, 19, aided Armando Osegueda and Richard Garcia, both 31. Osegueda and Garcia have not been deemed suspects in the murders, according to police.

The pair lived in an apartment complex on Richland Avenue in Ceres. It was in Garcia's apartment that he is alleged to have tortured his then-18-year-old girlfriend with Osegueda's help. Ceres police said they bound the woman's arms and legs, burned her with lighters, choked her, beat her and threatened to kill her Jan. 27.

A month later, Garcia's girlfriend, now 19, was the sole survivor in the home on McClure where the three poeple were shot to death. Siebels was her brother.
