Model and aspiring actress Christy Giles, as well as her friend Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola, have both been drugged and dropped off at hospitals after a night of partying in Los Angeles. The former was found dead, and the latter remains on life support. It’s been alleged that foul play was involved. Giles’ husband, Jan Cilliers, was out of town visiting his father at the time.


The two women were at a warehouse party with a third friend before they moved on to a club near East LA, the third opting out of the second outing. According to Cilliers’ telling of the story to Fox News, Cabrales-Arzola, commonly called Marcela, met a man and was invited to a party in Hollywood Hills. “They ended up at this guy’s house and they never left alive” and neither were seen again until 12 hours later, when Giles’ lifeless body was left on the sidewalk outside of a city hospital. Two hours after this, Cabrales-Arzola was brought to a different hospital.


Allegedly, there were three men in masks who left Giles’ body on the street, and they came out of a vehicle without license plates. According to the husband, the car was registered to the person who lived at the home of the last party. Upon Cabrales-Arzola’s arrival to the hospital, heroin was found in her system, however Cilliers claims that neither of the women would ever take the drug voluntarily. He did admit that Giles would occasionally use recreational drugs, but would never use heroin. Nonetheless, heroin was also found in Giles’ system.


Apparently during their time in the home, Giles texted Cabrales-Arzola saying that they both should leave, to which Cabrales-Arzola replied that she was calling an Uber that would be arriving soon. According to Giles’ iCloud account, this was the last time she had sent or read a text message. In Fox LA’s article, Cilliers specifies that his wife texting her friend while they’re in the same place, potentially right next to each other, is especially indicative that the situation was a concerning one. Further according to the husband, Giles had texted him 6 times. The last of these was at 1:30 a.m. on November 13th. The next thing he knew was that his wife was dead, dumped outside a Prius.


Oxygen notes that Cillier and Giles would always share their locations with each other for safety reasons, and the last one was an apartment building in West LA. Further, the article notes that there is even footage of the car without license plates dumping his wife’s body, as well as Cabrales-Arzola at a separate hospital. The coroner’s office is expecting to have some answers about Giles’ cause of death soon.


In addition to this, a number of people have been reaching out to share their own negative experiences with the same men, alluding to some long-term and repetitive issue. At the same time, people have also been reaching out with videos of Giles. Cilliers says, “it just brings back her energy, and I know I’ll never get to see her or kiss her or touch her again, and it’s just so heartbreaking.” 


According to what the LAPD told ABC 7, there is a possibility of a potential overdose turned fatal, but Cilliers presses on the idea of foul play. He wants whoever the two women met that night to be held accountable. Siding with Cillers is his Defense Attorney. “This is not cast as just another unfortunate overdose. We believe, and everything that we’re learning, is that obviously some sort of criminal element was involved in [Giles’ death],” said the Defense Attorney, Joshua E. Ritter.


Cilliers has created a GoFundMe page to help cover Giles’ funeral costs and to further investigate the cases.

Upon graduation, Neama was hired by O’Melveny & Myers, the largest law firm in Los Angeles, where he represented companies such as Disney, Marriott, and the Roman Catholic Church.

But Neama wanted to help ordinary people, not corporations, so he joined the United States Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted drug and human trafficking cases along the United States-Mexico border. While working as a federal prosecutor, Neama captured and successfully prosecuted a fugitive murderer and drug kingpin who had terrorized Southern California and was featured on “America’s Most Wanted.” Neama was then appointed to be the Director of Enforcement of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission, an independent watchdog that oversees and investigates the elected officials and highest level employees of the City of Los Angeles, including the Mayor and City Council. He held that position until becoming a trial lawyer for the people.

Neama has extensive trial experience. He has led teams of more than 170 attorneys in litigation against the largest companies in the world. Neama has successfully tried dozens of cases to verdict as lead trial counsel, and has argued before both state and federal appeals courts. Over the course of his career, Neama has handled thousands of cases as attorney of record and has helped his clients obtain more than $1 billion in settlements and judgments.
