Who Was Christy Giles And What Happened To Her?
Christy was a 24-year-old American social media model. With an Instagram following of 17 thousand, Christy was quite active in the app.
Giles’ dead body was discovered on Saturday, outside the South California Hospital, Culver City, Los Angeles.
In this unfortunate event, Christy wasn’t alone. Her friend and fashion designer Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola was also with her. According to the reports, Hilda’s body was also found but in front of a different hospital in Los Angeles. She is in critical condition at the moment.
Both the women were attending a party in L.A. on Friday and Hilda apparently met someone and they all were about to attend a party in Hollywood Hills.
Christy Giles’ husband Jan Cilliers said that according to reports both the women had consumed heroin. He also said that he knows they never would have voluntarily consumed it.
An investigation is still going on but Christy’s mother suspects that her daughter was a victim of sexual harassment. The officials are waiting for Hilda’s recovery as she is a major key and for Christy’s autopsy reports that will confirm what actually happened.
