LAPD has arrested three suspects, including NCIS: L.A. actor Brandt Osborn, in connection to the death of model Christy Giles, who was drugged and dropped off at an L.A. hospital on November 13.

Osborn was shooting an episode of NCIS: LA on Hollywood and Vine, when police showed up to make the arrest, according to TMZ.

Investigators said they believe Giles was drugged to incapacitation and dropped off at Southern California Hospital in Culver City by masked men in a black Toyota Prius.

She was pronounced dead on arrival.

Soon after, Giles friend Hilda Arzola was dropped off in similar fashion at Kaiser Permanente in West Los Angeles. Arzola was in critical condition and was pronounced dead days later on November 24.

It is believed that the women were drugged to the point of overdose somewhere on the 8600 block of Olympic Boulevard in the city of Los Angeles.

A GoFundMe campaign was organized for Giles, with the funds said to be used to hire private investigators, perform a private autopsy and for a witness reward. As of this writing, the campaign has raised more than $130,000.

One of the leading suspects, David Pearce, was charged with manslaughter and being held on $1 million bond. The other two suspects, Michael Ansbach and Osborn were charged with accessory to manslaughter and are being held on $100,000 bail.

As of this writing, the investigation is ongoing, with LAPD asking anyone with information to contact the LAPD West Bureau Homicide division.
