Three men have been arrested in connection with the deaths of two women whose bodies were dumped outside of hospitals in Los Angeles. 

David Pearce, 37, Brandt Osborn, 42, and Michael Ansbach, 47, were arrested by officers from the LAPD on Wednesday following the deaths of Christy Giles, 24, and Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola, 26. 

According to the New York Post, Pearce has been charged with manslaughter, while Osborn - an actor - and cinematographer Ansbach have both been charged with accessory to murder.

Announcing the arrests, LAPD said: “It is believed that both women were given drugs and overdosed.

“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.”

All the men were booked on felony charges and are held on $100,000 bail. 

Giles' husband Jan Cilliers says footage shows her being dumped on the pavement outside of the Southern California Hospital in Culver City by a group of men who were concealing their identities with bandanas over their faces and drove off in a car that had no licence plates on it.

Cabrales-Arzola was left outside the Kaiser Permanente hospital in West LA. Both women later died. 

Cilliers told ABC7: "I've got all the messages that she exchanged with anybody else that night and she was texting Marcela, the girl that she was with, at 5.30am saying let's get out of here with the wide eye emoji.

"The loss is just so hard. People share these amazing videos that they have with her and it just brings back her energy.

"I know I'll never get to see her or kiss her or touch her again and it is just so heartbreaking."

Cilliers, told The Daily Beast on Thursday that he’s ‘happy the arrests got made’.

The case against the three suspects will be presented to the Los Angeles District Attorney on Friday. 

The police urged people with more information to come forward, saying: “This is an active and ongoing investigation.”
