A California memorial service is held for a model who threw her body into a hospital after a night party


Friends and family of Los Angeles model Christy Giles, who dropped an inanimate body from a veil in hospital last week, were ready to gather on Sunday to remember the 24-year-old.

“She’s one of the most amazing sweet people you can ever meet,” Carter told LBL before the Roland Memorial Service. After meeting her at Coachella After Party in 2016, Rowand became friends with Giles.

“If you were her friend, you knew you were her life’s friend,” Roland said. “She’s a really wonderful person. She’s always had the positive to spread.”

Giles’ husband, John Silliers, previously told LBL that Giles left Mexico’s interior designer Hilda Marcela Cabrerales-Arzola and another friend in Los Angeles on the evening of November 12.

Cabrales-Arzola met a man, and they all had to go to a party in the Hollywood Hills, but Cabrerales-Arzola and Giles returned to the man’s apartment. About 12 hours after Cabrales-Arzola and Giles were last heard, Giles’ body was thrown into the driveway of Culver City Hospital in a vehicle with no license plates. She was pronounced dead a short time later.

According to Silliers, modeling agents originally found Giles at a shopping mall in Mount Olive, Alabama. Her modeling career included work in London, Miami, Peru and other places.

As law enforcement tries to rally around unanswered questions surrounding her death, her family and friends are honoring her life on Sunday.

“She was a very vibrant, loving woman,” Carly Ann Amos, one of Giles’ close friends, told LBL. “She loved to protect her friends, her community of people. She was doing what she needed to be. She was such a light. She was the brightest light of all, honestly.”

Roland echoed that sentiment, saying everyone was drawn to Giles’ kindness.

“She was such a homie, such a good friend. It was really hard not to gravitate toward her immediately,” Roland said.

“She had this amazing skill to bring people together. Maybe they had never met or had ever met before, and by the end of the night, everyone was good friends.”

About two hours after Giles left her on the sidewalk, Cabriles-Arzola was taken to a nearby hospital. According to GoFundMe, founded by Cilliers, she is currently “in critical condition and fighting for her life.”

Cabrales-Arzola had heroin in his system, but Cilliers said no woman would take the drug voluntarily.

“One hundred percent he was intoxicated,” Cilliers said.

The LAPD did not respond to a request for comment Sunday.
