Christy Giles, a social media influencer and model, was reportedly found dead on the footpath outside a hospital in Los Angeles, California over the weekend. Shockingly, a friend of Giles was also found dumped outside another hospital in the city and was pronounced braindead. The two women were last seen partying together in the eastern part of LA on the night of November 12.
Giles was 24 while her friend, identified as a designer named Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola was 26 years old. The latter is presently on life support but medical experts have said chances of her surviving are little.
Investigating authorities are probing the angle of a possible drug overdose in the two deaths. Giles' husband revealed that heroin was found in the late influencer's system, as per the toxicology report.
Heroin was "nothing that either of those girls would ever do, not voluntarily," Jan Cilliers, Giles' husband who was away in San Francisco the weekend she lost her life, told ABC7.

As per reports, Giles and Cabrales-Arzola were out partying Friday night last week at a warehouse. Around 5:30 AM Saturday morning, Giles allegedly messaged Cabrales-Arzola saying they should leave the party, according to Cilliers who said he had access to his wife's texts.
The women's bodies were found dumped outside different hospitals in LA an evening later on Saturday.
Reports suggest the LA police department presiding over the case believes it might be an incident of drug consumption turning fatal. Giles' husband has claimed further that a video exists of three masked men in a Toyota Prius without a license plate dumping his wife's body outside the hospital in Culver City where she was found.
Giles was active on social media with over 20,000 followers on Instagram, where she shared glimpses from her shoots and modelling. She was an aspiring actor. Fans are leaving condolence messages for Giles under her social media posts.
