Woman wanted in shooting death of her 90-year-old mother may be in L.A., police say

A Bay Area woman who is wanted in connection with killing her 90-year-old mother and throwing her body in a trash can last year is believed to be in the Los Angeles area, police said.

El Cerrito police recently developed information that Alicia “Lisa” Osibin may not only be in Los Angeles, but that she may have also changed her name and appearance.

Her appearance may have been altered to “a more masculine look,” El Cerrito police said. Police described Osibin as 5 feet 8 and heavy set. She may be wearing eyeglasses and using the name A. Callico or Alex Callico.

Osibin is considered armed and dangerous, police said.

Detectives began investigating Osibin after they received a report on her mother’s disappearance Nov. 27.

Neighbors reported last seeing her mother, Mary Osibin, in August 2015 at her home in the 1000 block of Leneve Place in El Cerrito, police said.

On Dec. 2, investigators found her mother’s remains concealed in a trash barrel at her home.

The Contra Costa County coroner’s office determined Mary Osibin had died of a gunshot wound. But detectives believed she was killed months earlier.

At that point, El Cerrito detectives a warrant to arrest Alicia Osibin in connection with her mother’s murder.

Anyone with details about Alicia Osibin’s whereabouts is urged to call any local law enforcement agency.
