By Sam Catanzaro

Detectives have announced the arrest of three suspects involved in the deaths of two women who were dropped off at local hospitals in Culver City and West LA. 

According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), on November 13, 2021, masked men dropped off Cristy Giles at Southern California Hospital in Culver City. The men were in a black Toyota Prius with no plates. The victim was unconscious and the victim was pronounced dead.

A short time later the same men dropped off a second victim, Hilda Marcela Cabrales Arzola at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Hospital. This victim was unconscious and in very critical condition. She was declared dead on November 24, 2021.

Police say it is believed that both women were given drugs and overdosed at a residence in the 8600 block of Olympic Boulevard in the City of Los Angeles. West Bureau Homicide Detectives responded and continue to investigate this case.

Three suspects were identified and arrested with the assistance of the LAPD-FBI Fugitive Task Force and Metropolitan Division. Based on the investigation, the LAPD is concerned that there could be other victims in our community who could have been drugged by one or more of these men.
