NCIS Actor, Two Others Arrested for Alleged Murder of Two Women
An NCIS actor Brandt Osborn of Staten Island has been arrested alongside two other men in connection with the murder of two ladies, the Los Angeles Police said.
The Police said on Thursday that Christy Giles and Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola were murdered in November.
The other two arrested suspects are Michael Ansbach and David Pearce. Ansbach is a cameraman whose credits include Vanderpump Rules and Wicked Tuna.
Pearce, 37, was charged with manslaughter, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said according to The New York Post. Ansbach, 47, and Osborn, 42, were charged with accessory to manslaughter.
“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,” police said.

Giles, 24, was an Instagram model. She was found dead outside a Los Angeles area hospital after attending a warehouse party with friends in Los Angeles last month. Cabrales-Arzola, a 26-year-old interior designer, was found at another Los Angeles hospital. She was found alive, but she was taken off life support weeks later, reports the Daily Beast.
Osborn was accused of felony and held on bail of $100,000. However, actors Alexandra Creteau and David Murrietta Jr. said Osborn told them about partying with women and dumping their bodies in November, The New York Post reported.
“‘I have had the craziest weekend of my life,'” Murrietta recalled Osborn telling them during a commercial shoot. “He told me how they’d partied, two girls came back to their place, and the girls had a bunch of drugs.” Osborn allegedly told Murietta he went to get a COVID-19 test at his apartment. When he returned, Osborn’s roommate told him Giles was dead, Murietta told the Post.
“He checked her pulse, freaked out, decided not to call 911, and they decided what to do with the body. Then they didn’t know what to do, they didn’t want to call 911 and get in trouble, so they decided to drive and drop her body at Culver City hospital,” Murrietta told the Post.
“He was like, ‘We dropped the first girl off, we came back to our place,’ then he checked the second girl’s pulse and it was very faint, so they tried to decide what to do with the second girl. Got her in the car and decided to drop her off at a second hospital so they didn’t get caught.”
Giles’ husband, Jan Cilliers said he was happy the arrests were made. He called for other victims of the suspects to speak out.
