The Things We Do For Love

Corona, CA

Like lie. Badly.

Fernando Castillo, 46, was stabbed to death last year at his home in Corona. At the time his 15-year-old step-daughter claimed that two men broke in and killed him, even though there was no sign of a break-in.

Then her boyfriend, Brian Aranda, 21, was fingered for it. Confessed and everything. Well, not everything. Seems he couldn't explain why he did it.

Looks like the head-scratching of the Corona police finally got them looking in a different direction. At the step-daughter.

She was picked up Tuesday.

Now, I understand that the boyfriend's going to be your first suspect. And chances are he was part of it. Hell, he might have actually done it.

But it took a year to figure out she might be in on it? Come on. There are damn few things more scarily ruthless than a 15-year-old girl. Gitmo torturers, maybe. Wall Street brokers. Toddlers.

Think about it. You ever seen teenage girls fight? And what it takes to get them to fight? The only reason any of them survive is because nobody thinks to bring a straight razor.

Without doing any damage to his defense, truth is the so called 15 yr old girl has long stated she was 19 yrs old. That's just 1 lie out of many told to a lot of people including Brian Aranda. Once the whole truth comes out you will see she has manipulated her way through her short 15 years of life.

does anyone have any news on this?

Nothing that I've seen. Aranda's still in a Corona jail cell.

Presumably so is the girl, but there's no real way for me to find out since she's a minor, and I don't have her name.

I don't think we'll hear anything for a while.

it is kinda wierd how put this up and it talks about a little 11 yr old in in it?

She was found guilty of conspiracy and his first trial they had a tainted jury so he is still waiting for his second trial. The man that died was not so innocent and in the girls defense she had more then enough reason to want him dead.
