February 28, 2016 (Boulevard) --  The victim in yesterday’s fatal stabbing in Boulevard has been identified as Christalina Leona Louise Indish.  Four people have been arrested in connection with her death. In addition, 17 undocumented immigrants found at the residence have been detained.

After receiving 911 calls from the Campo Indian reservation at 11:28 a.m., Sheriff deputies found the victim on the front stairs of a home at 36390 Tusil Road in Boulevard. She had numerous injuries consistent with stab wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

Detectives determined Christalina lived at the residence alone. Deputies checked the residence and found 17 undocumented people in the back bedrooms. The undocumented people were transported to the Campo Border Patrol Station for processing and interviews. The United States Department of Homeland Security is investigating this aspect of the case.

“Detectives learned that Christalina was in an intimate relationship with Darrell Wohlford who was also in an intimate relationship with  Cindy Ceballos which led to several recent arguments,” said Lieutenant Gary  Rylaarsdam with the Sheriff’s Homicide Detail.

According to Lt. Rylaarsdam,  investigators learned that at about 11:20 am, Christalina was at home with the undocumented people when two vehicles drove up.  “Darrell Wohlford, Cindy Ceballos, Natalie Ceballos and Casandra Alto got out of the cars and confronted Christalina. During the confrontation, Christalina was stabbed several times in her upper body,” Rylaarsdam said.

The four suspescts fled the area. Deputies from the Pine Valley and Campo Substations were able to obtain vehicle descriptions and searched the area with the assistance of officers from the California Highway Patrol and agents from the US Border Patrol. Aerial support units from the Sheriff's Department (ASTREA) and the US Border Patrol (OMAHA) provided assistance with locating the suspects' vehicles.

As a result, deputies located and arrested Natalie Ceballos. A Sheriff's K-9 tracked down and arrested Darrell Wohlford and Cindy Ceballos after finding them hiding in an abandoned residence nearby in Campo. Casandra Alto was also located and arrested.

Wohlford was booked into San Diego Central Jail for murder and is being held without bail. Cindy Ceballos, Natalie Ceballos and Casandra Alto were booked into the Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility for murder and are being held without bail.

Detectives from the San Diego Sheriff's Department Homicide Detail are continuing their investigation. The Medical Examiner's Office will determine the cause and manner of death.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Homicide Detail at (858) 974-2321/after hours at (858) 565-5200. You can also remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 and be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

The victim’s Facebook page indicated she was the “big boss” at Buy, Sell and Trade and had studied to be a medical assistant.  Her last posts were on July 15th, 2015. One of them, ironically, read:
