Brandt Osborn arrested in connection to deaths of model, Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola

A Staten Island native turned Hollywood hanger-on and actor was arrested in connection with the mysterious deaths of two women, The Post has learned.

Brandt Osborn, 42, was arrested on the set of “NCIS: Los Angeles” in connection with the November deaths of Christy Giles and Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola.

Jan Cilliers, Giles’ husband, told the Post that LAPD arrested Osborn and two other men on Wednesday afternoon. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, Osborn is being held on $100,000 bail. The other man, David Pearce, is being held on $1 million bail. 

The third man, Michael Ansbach, is being held at an L.A. jail at $100,000 bail.

According to actors Alexandra Creteau and David Murrietta Jr., both 35, Osborn had bragged about partying with women and later dumping their bodies.

“I have had the craziest weekend of my life,” Murrietta said the actor told him.

“He told me how they’d partied, two girls came back to their place, and the girls had a bunch of drugs.”

Osborn left to get a COVID-19 test for the commercial shoot, and when he returned his roommate informed him that Giles was dead, Osborn allegedly told Murrietta.

“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. 

“He was like, ‘we dropped the first girl off, we came back to our place’ then he checked the second girl’s pulse and it was very faint, so they tried to decide what to do with the second girl.

“Got her in the car and decided to drop her off at a second hospital so they didn’t get caught.”

Model and aspiring actress Giles, 24, was found dead on a sidewalk outside Southern California Hospital in Culver City on Nov. 13 and architect Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola, 26, was found unconscious outside Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles hospital two hours later. 

Cabrales-Arzola died after more than two weeks in a coma, when her family switched off her life support the day before her 27th birthday.

Cilliers told the Post both Osborn and Pearce were in Pearce’s vehicle when they dropped off the bodies of his wife and her friend at the two hospitals. He said his wife and Cabrales-Arzola met the men at a warehouse party in East Los Angeles and the group went back to Pearce’s apartment.

Cilliers told the Post that Ansbach is an acquaintance of Pearce.

“We would like anyone with any more information about them to come forward to the LAPD as soon as possible,” Cilliers said.

L.A. cops nabbed Osborn on the “NCIS: Los Angeles” set shooting near the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood around midday on Wednesday.

Osborn’s IMDB page shows three acting credits, including an appearance on a 2014 episode of “Nurse Jackie,” which stars Edie Falco. 

A LinkedIn page shows him bartending at Hotel Americano for 15 years — he claims he “created my own cocktail called the ‘Sunblazer.’”

His Facebook page also shows him at various LA events. In one photo he’s seen alongside Paris Hilton. In another he’s posing on a hill overlooking Los Angeles.

“Bad decisions make great stories,” his shirt reads.

Osborn refused to comment when contacted by The Post.

“I don’t have a comment, alright? Goodbye,” he said.

Cops searched Osborn’s apartment the day the women were dumped, according to Murrietta.

“He said about 45 minutes after the second girl had been dropped off at the hospital, the cops turned up at the apartment,” Murrietta said.

“They searched the entire place, didn’t find anything, so they uncuffed them and let ’em go I guess.

“His biggest concern after all of this was the girls had peed in the bed during the night.”

Cabrales-Arzola was found to have heroin in her system — but both women’s families and friends have alleged the pair had been drugged and assaulted after a night out.
