LA model found dead on sidewalk outside hospital after being drugged and dumped

A dead model was dumped outside a hospital by men who had forcibly injected her with heroin, according to her husband.    

Christy Giles, 24, was pronounced dead at Southern California Hospital in Culver City after her body was discovered on the sidewalk. 

Her friend Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola, 26, was dumped outside a separate hospital, Kaiser Permanente in West LA, by the same men two hours later.

She ‘remains on life-support with no brain activity with little possibility of recovery,’ ABC 7 reported. 

Giles’ husband, Jan Cillers, told ABC 7 that video captured his deceased wife being left by three men dressed in black and masked in bandanas driving a Prius without licenses plates. 

Giles went out with two girlfriends, including Cabrales-Arzola Friday night while Cillers was visiting his father in San Francisco.

The women went out to the SoHo House in downtown LA and then a nearby warehouse party.

One of the friends went home while Cabrales-Arzola, an interior designer who had just moved to Los Angeles from Mexico, stayed out with Giles after meeting a guy.  

The two women left the party in downtown LA with the men they met and ended up at an apartment building in West LA, the third friend said. Cillers assumes that the women were offered a ride to an after-party but never made it. 

He tracked Giles’ phone at 1:30 a.m. and shared her location as an apartment building at 8641 West Olympic Boulevard. He posted a photo of the address asking his social media followers: ‘Anyone know someone that lives here?’

Detectives have since been spotted at the apartment building, which has seven units. 

Cillers claims to know the men who his wife and Cabrales-Arzola left with. He and Giles’ best friend, Sandy Evangelista Robinson, have reportedly been receiving messages from other women sharing other similar bad nights with the men. 

When he shared the names of the men on social media, one of their ex-girlfriends allegedly shared her story writing: ‘He’s a dangerous person, and I’ve been contacted by numerous women who’ve also experienced abuse from him.’

Robinson told KTLA, ‘I don’t know if we’ll ever get closure unless there’s justice against these men.’

The GoFundMe page created by Cillers and Carly Amos states: ‘Since Saturday we’ve all received a number of messages from other females who have eerily similar stories, except the only difference between them & Christy and Hilda, is they survived.’

Cillers’ Instagram page links to the GoFundMe urging: ‘Please help us raise the money we will nee to bring the criminal balls to justice that are responsible for [Chritsty’s] death.’ 

Cillers, who has accessed Giles’ text messages via iCloud, said: ‘I’ve got all the messages that she exchanged with anybody else that night and she was texting Marcela, the girl that she was with, at 5:30 saying let’s get out of here with the wide eye emoji.’

To which he says Cabrales-Arzola replied: ‘Yes, I called an Uber. Ten minutes.’ 

He claims it does not appear that Giles checked any text messages beyond that point. Nearly 12 hours after either woman was heard from, their bodies were discarded. 

Giles' last known location before turning up at the hospital is being investigated by police

He also confirmed to KTLA that heroine was found in his wife’s system along with her friend. 

Which he points to as foul play: ‘Marcela’s toxicology report came back, and I guess they found heroin in her system, which is nothing that either of those girls would ever do, not voluntarily.’ 

LAPD believe that it was a drug overdose that turned fatal but family and friends suspect foul play. At this point the case remains an undetermined death investigation. 

Tributes to the young woman have been pouring out on social media since news of Christy’s passing broke. 

‘People share these amazing videos that they have with her, and it just brings back her energy, and I know I’ll never get to see her or kiss her or touch her again,’ Cillers told ABC.
