SAN DIEGO - Three people now face charges of criminal mischief for damaging hundreds of headstones and vases at the San Diego cemetery.
Authorities picked up 28-year-old Rita Camarillo (aka Rita Alaniz), 27-year-old Chris Fuentes, and 18-year-old Emilio Pena within the past 24 hours.
Jim Wells County investigators say the three suspects were in the cemetery using a Ouija board, but became upset when it didn't work, so they trashed the place. Investigators found the board in one suspect's vehicle.
Investigators talked to Camarillo about the allegations last night after her arrest at a home on West King Street.
During questioning, she implicated the two men in the crime. Authorities were able to track them down today.
Families came to the cemetery on Sunday morning to find extensive damage across the site. The cleanup got underway in earnest on Monday with backhoes called in to help upright knocked over headstones and statues.
Many families used glue to put the grave markers back together. It's not clear how many families will need to totally replace headstones and other items.
