    JOHN AND CHRISTORIA BILKEI MURDER- Sadly, these sweet Grandparents had been violently attacked and stabbed to death in their own home on Donnawood Way in Orangevale.

    It was obvious to investigators that a tremendous struggle had occurred but there was no clear murder suspect to name. In the 1980’s the use of DNA by law enforcement had not yet become available.

    Chairo 2 Written by Chandler Vaughn

    OLIVEHURST, Calif.- Residents of Olivehurst, a tiny enclave of Yuba County, are still grieving the loss of a beautiful young woman named Chairo Garibay, who was viciously murdered ten years ago today, December 11, 2005.

    This was no ordinary morning for Chairo. It was the Mass of Our Lady, The Virgin of Guadalupe. It was a sacred. A celebration she attended every year with her family, as a matter of devotion. This day, Chairo was doing what most young ladies her age don’t do anymore, she was preparing for church, at 5 a.m.

    What a remarkable young citizen she was.

    After that morning, Chairo Garibay was never seen alive again. She had been attacked and murdered. It sickens the soul to repeat the shameful way her life was taken…so I won’t. (Please see TCC’s previous post for details).

    CHAIRO GARIBAY’S MURDER IS STILL UNSOLVED. Her killer continues to have freedom in this world. Somebody knows something.

    Please help solve this crime. If you have any details relating to this case, no matter how insignificant, please contact Yuba County Sheriff at 530-749-7777.

    My prayers for strength and continued comfort go out to Chairo’s mother, Magdalena, and her beautiful young siblings. There are no words strong enough to convey my concern. True Crime California will continue posting updates until Chairo’s murder is solved and her killer is brought to face justice…in this life…and for eternity. True Love Never Dies.

    WASCO, Calif. – Yoselin Calderon, 17, was reported missing in July 2014, one month after running away from her Kern County home. When Yoselin disappeared, it was believed she may have been in the company of an adult male with the last name of Lopez in the city of Lancaster. Several hotels/motels in surrounding areas were searched but yielded no sign of Yoselin.

    YOSELIN CALDERON BODY FOUND – Sadly, four months later, on the morning of November 5, Yoselin’s body was found in Poso Creek, just a short distance north of Wasco. Yoselin’s decomposed remains were found by workers of the North Kern Water Storage District and reported to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office. Her identification was later confirmed by dental records. Family and friends feel strongly that foul play was involved in Yoselin’s death.

    Yoselin Calderon’s death is being investigated as a homicide.
