Christy Giles, 24, died of a suspected drug overdose following a night out with friends in the city, which left another woman hospitalised in critical condition.
Giles’ husband, Jan Cilliers, says video footage shows her being left outside Southern California Hospital in Culver City, California, by a group of men who hid their identities and drove off in a car without license plates.
Mr Cilliers was away in San Francisco and says that his wife and a friend, Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola, met some men at a party in the city before ending up at an apartment in West LA.
“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 5:30 saying let’s get out of here with the wide eye emoji,” Cilliers said.
Authorities say that 12 hours later her body was left outside the hospital, while Ms Cabrales-Arzola was left outside Kaiser Permanente hospital in West LA, where she remains in a critical condition.
“Marcela’s toxicology report came back, and I guess they found heroin in her system, which is nothing that either of those girls would ever do, not voluntarily,” Mr Cilliers said.
