‘NCIS’ Star Brandt Osborn Arrested In Connection To Deaths Of Instagram Model & Her Friend
Actor Brandt Osborn was arrested on the NCIS: Los Angeles set in the case of the deaths of a 21-year old Instagram model and her friend.
Osborn was one of the three men arrested Wednesday over the November deaths of Christy Giles and Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed Tuesday. The women’s bodies were dumped outside L.A. hospitals in the middle of the night.
David Pearce, 37, and Michael Ansbach, 47, were identified as possible accomplices and were taken into custody Wednesday.
According to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Pearce faces a manslaughter charge, while Ansbach and Osborn are charged with accessory to manslaughter.
“It is believed that both women were given drugs and overdosed,” the police department said in a press release that also warned “there could be other victims.”
Giles body was found dumped on the sidewalk of a Los Angeles area hospital after attending a warehouse party with friends in mid-November.
Cabrales-Arzola, an interior designer, was dropped off at another Los Angeles area-hospital, and was taken in for care but she was taken off life support weeks later when it was determined she was brain dead.
The three men were booked on Wednesday for a felony charge and are being held on $100,000 bond.
Osborn is said to have been openly speaking to fellow actors, bragging about “the craziest weekend of my life” at a shoot, said actor David Murrietta Jr.
“He told me how they’d partied, two girls came back to their place, and the girls had a bunch of drugs,” Murrietta told the New York Post.
He also recalled Osborn saying he’d left the residence and returned to have his roommate tell him Giles has died.
“He checked her pulse, freaked out, decided not to call 911, and they decided what to do with the body,” he told the Post.
Osborn’s industry credits include Nurse Jackie, where he appeared in an episode as the best man of the main character’s husband.
