LOS ANGELES (CNS) - At least three people are in police custody today on suspicion of killing a model and her friend last month, according to the husband of one of the victims.  

Christy Giles, a 24-year-old model and aspiring actress, and her friend Hilda Marcela Cabrales-Arzola were last seen at an apartment in the Pico- Robertson neighborhood before their bodies were dumped outside a Southern California Hospital in Culver City and a Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Hospital.  

Giles was already dead when she was found outside the hospital on Nov. 13. Cabrales-Arzola, an architect, was in critical condition and her family took her off life support a day before her 27th birthday on Nov. 27.  

``Even if they get charged to the fullest extent of the law, no amount of legal justice will bring back Christy and Hilda,`` Jan Cilliers, Giles' husband, told Fox 11.  

Cilliers said police authorities contacted him about the arrests on Wednesday.  

KABC reported the FBI confirmed ``some arrests'' have been made but did not elaborate.  

Cilliers had been quoted in previous published reports as saying video exists of three masked men dressed in black who pulled up to the hospital and pushed the model's body out of a Toyota Prius without license plates.  

Giles and Cabrales-Arzola exchanged text messages hours before they were found, appearing to have called an Uber to leave the apartment.  

The women's family members have claimed they were possibly drugged against their will at some point before they were found.  

According to a toxicology report, heroin was found in Cabrales-Arzola' system, KABC 7 reported.  

The toxicology report on Giles' body has not been released and her cause of death has been deferred.  

No further details on the arrest have been released.
