“Based on the investigation, the LAPD is concerned that there may be other victims in our community who may have been drugged by one or more of these men.”

According to actors Alexandra Creteau and David Murrietta Jr., both 35, Osborn disclosed to them during a November shoot that they had partied with women and later dumped their bodies.

“I had the craziest weekend of my life,” the actor told Murrietta.

“He told me how they partied, two girls came home and the girls had a bunch of drugs.”

Murrietta said Osborn told her he had left his apartment to take a COVID-19 test for commercial filming, and when he returned, his roommate informed him that Giles had died.

“He checked his pulse, freaked out, decided not to call 911 and they decided what to do with the body,” Murrietta told the Post.

“Then they didn’t know what to do, they didn’t want to call 911 and get in trouble, so they decided to drive over and drop off his body at Culver City Hospital.

“He was like, ‘we dropped off the first girl, we came home’ and then he checked the second girl’s pulse and it was very weak, so they tried to decide what to do with the second girl.

“I got her in the car and decided to drop her off at a second hospital so they don’t get caught.”

Giles, 24, an aspiring model and actress, was found dead on a sidewalk outside Southern California Hospital in Culver City on November 13 and architect Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola, 26, was found unconscious outside the Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Hospital two hours later. .

Cabrales-Arzola died after more than two weeks in a coma, when her family cut off her life support the day before her 27th birthday.

Cilliers told the Post that Osborn and Pearce were in Pearce’s vehicle when they dropped off the bodies of his wife and friend at the two hospitals. He said his wife and Cabrales-Arzola met the men at a warehouse party in East Los Angeles and the group returned to Pearce’s apartment.

Cilliers told the Post that Ansbach is an acquaintance of Pearce.

“We would like anyone with more information about them to report to the LAPD as soon as possible,” Cilliers said.

“His biggest concern after all of this was that the girls had wet the bed during the night,” Murrietta said.

Cabrales-Arzola was found to have heroin in her system – but families and friends of the women alleged the pair were drugged and assaulted after a night out.

Pearce is also believed to be an aspiring actor and director and has been photographed at events with numerous stars, including porn star Ron Jeremy, who was charged with more than 30 counts of sexual assault last year.

Ansbach describes himself on his private instagram account as “director of photography” as well as “director, producer, screenwriter” and even “biohacker”.

The case against the three men will be presented to the Los Angeles District Attorney on Friday, the LAPD said.

“This is an active and ongoing investigation,” police said, calling for more information.
