Murder charges have been filed in connection with the deaths of an aspiring model and her architect friend, who were both found dumped outside of different hospitals after a night out in the Los Angeles area.
Christy Giles’ body was left on the sidewalk outside Southern California Hospital in Culver City the night of Nov. 13 by three masked men in a black Toyota Prius without license plates, police said. Just hours later, Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola was similarly dropped off at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in West Los Angeles a few miles away.
Giles was pronounced dead early the following morning while Cabrales-Arzola died on Nov. 24, less than a week before her 27th birthday.
Authorities initially arrested David Pearce on suspicion of manslaughter in December while Brandt Osborn and Michael Ansbach were also taken into custody on suspicion of being accessories in the deaths.
Pearce was accused of giving the women a deadly cocktail of drugs resulting their overdose deaths. Police said the other pair of suspects, claiming to be good Samaritans, drove the friends to each hospital and then left them there.
The Los Angeles District Attorney previously declined to charge Osborn and Ansbach, resulting in their release, according to the Los Angeles Times. Pearce, meanwhile remained behind bars on separate rape charges. Earlier this week however, Pearce was charged with murder while Osborn was charged as an accessory.
Ansbach is not facing charges in the case.
