Three men have been arrested for the deaths of two women who were dumped separately outside of Los Angeles area hospitals in November after a night of partying.
David Pearce, 37, was arrested for manslaughter and is being held on $1 million bail. Michael Ansbach,47, and Brandt Osborn, 42, were arrested for accessory to manslaughter. Both are being held on $100,000 bail, according to a news release from the Los Angeles Police Department.
“Based on the investigation, the LAPD is concerned that there could be other victims in our community who could have been drugged by one or more of these men,” the news release said.
As previously reported by Oxygen.com the body of model Christy Giles, 24, was left outside of a Southern California Hospital in Culver City. Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola, an aspiring architect, was still alive, but unconscious when she was left outside of Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles.
She was declared brain dead. Two weeks later, her family took her off life support, just a day before her 27th birthday, according to KABC. Her organs were donated.
Police said the men wore masks and drove a Toyota Prius with no license plates.
Giles's cause of death was deferred until more testing, but heroin was found in Cabrales-Arzola’s system, according to KABC. Relatives of both women said they would never voluntarily take drugs and suspected foul play immediately.
Jan Cilliers, Giles’s husband, told KNBC that another friend who was with the women that night said they were drugged. They had hooked up with a group of men to go to an after party.
“We assume that the way the girls got in the car with them that they were all going to go to the after party, that everyone wanted to go together,” Cilliers told KNBC. “And they never ended up making it there.”
Cilliers told multiple news outlets that he and his wife shared their locations on their phones for safety. The last location pinned on her phone was the emergency room in Culver City where she died.
The last text message Giles sent from her phone was to Cabrles-Arzola, according to KABC. It said, “let’s go,” along with a shocked emoji face. Cabrales-Arzola replied: “Yes, “I’ll call an Uber.” It was just minutes away, but they never got into it.
Osborn, an actor, was taken into custody on the set of “NCIS: Los Angeles,” according to the New York Post.
The New York native told two actor friends while on a shoot in November about partying with women and dumping their bodies, the newspaper reported.
“He told me how they’d partied, two girls came back to their place, and the girls had a bunch of drugs,” David Murrietta, Jr told the New York Post.
Murrietta told the Post that Osborne left his apartment to go get a Covid-19 test and learned that Giles was dead when he returned.
“He checked her pulse, freaked out, decided not to call 911, and they decided what to do with the body,” Murrietta told The Post. “Then they didn’t know what to do, they didn’t want to call 911 and get in trouble, so they decided to drive and drop her body at Culver City hospital.”
When they returned to the apartment the second woman, had a faint pulse, so they decided to drop her off at a separate hospital, Murrietta told the paper.
“His biggest concern after all of this was the girls had peed in the bed during the night,” Murrietta told the Post.
