The mother of model Christy Giles has backed suggestions her daughter was drugged before being dumped dead on a sidewalk outside a Los Angeles hospital.
Giles’ husband Jan Cilliers has claimed to have seen video of three masked men dressed in black pull up to Southern California Hospital in Culver City on Saturday night, where they dumped the 24-year-old model’s body out of a Toyota Prius without license plates.
Giles’ father was an Iraq war veteran who taught her to kill a man with a ballpoint pen, which is why her mother Dusty Giles is adamant the model must have been drugged by her killers so she could not fight back.
“My daughter is a military police officer’s daughter, her father Leslie served in Iraq,” Dusty Giles told The US Sun.
“My daughters have been taught literally how to kill a person with a ballpoint pen.
“My daughter would have fought like hell and from my understanding from speaking to the emergency room doctor and nurse, they did not see any visible bruises, scratches, or any indication of an altercation.”
Giles’ friend Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola, 26, was found in a critical condition outside a separate hospital in LA on the same night, where doctors reportedly found heroin in her system.
Cabrales-Arzola remains on life support with no brain activity and little prospect of recovery, according to her friends.
Dusty Giles expects her daughter’s toxicology report will also reveal traces of heroin and fears the drug was forcefully injected before Christy was raped.
“The only way that these men would have kept my daughter and Hilda for over 10 hours would be by giving them drugs, maybe tying them up,” she told The US Sun.
“I believe they drugged them to keep them and I believe they probably raped them.”
Officials with the LA County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner said an autopsy will be conducted on Giles but there was no additional information as of Thursday.
LAPD officials also declined to comment with the investigation ongoing.
The Giles family is still awaiting the results of a toxicology report and a rape kit test performed on Christy.
The grieving mother has ruled out any possibility of an accidental heroin overdose because her daughter was painfully aware of how devastating the drug could be.
“My daughter has never done heroin in her life,” she continued.
“She has a cousin who did heroin once and got addicted.
“He’s been in and out of rehab twice. She’s very close to him and she was upset that he did that.
“She’s had close friends OD out there and she told me ‘It’s crazy mom, they lace this stuff with fentanyl and people do it once as a party thing and then they’re dead.”
Dusty Giles said Christy had been open and honest about dabbling in a raft illicit drugs, which is why she is so sure the model was honest about avoiding heroin.
“Was my daughter an angel? No, my daughter did dabble in what she said were party drugs,” she continued.
“She said ‘I’m not going to lie mom, I’ll do a line of coke once in a while, I’ve done ketamine or I’ll do molly, and every once in a while with friends I’ve tried mushrooms.’
“My daughter was extremely open and unapologetic about the way that she lived her life.
“Even though we live in Alabama and we have a different outlook on things, she had no reason to lie to her husband and her best friends in California.”
Dusty Giles said an accidental overdose could not explain why her daughter would be left for dead.
“If it was an accidental overdose, why not call 911?” she said.
“Why do you wait 10 hours until she is dead to fling her on a sidewalk, remove your license plates, obscure your face?”
