Talking with The IndependentGiles’ mom Dusty Leslie Giles shared more insight into the final text messages her daughter sent Cabrales-Arzola around 5:48 a.m. on Nov. 13, saying they planned on taking an Uber home.

“My daughter texted Hilda ‘let’s get out of here’ with a big wide eyed emoji—like I am scared, we need to leave. Hilda agreed and said ‘I’m getting an Uber,'” Giles said. We know Hilda ordered an Uber. It arrived approximately five to ten minutes later.” 

She continued, “The Uber was waiting. “The Uber fled.” 

Cilliers is listed as the beneficiary in a GoFundMe fundraising campaign. It was started to help pay funeral costs and also hire private investigators. It has received more than $130,000 in donations thus far.

In its description, the campaign claims that “Christy & her friend Hilda were allegedly drugged” and that “twelve hours later three men in an all black, masked in bandanas; with license plates removed, dropped Christy off on the sidewalk of a hospital.”  

It states that “Christy had already died and was pronounced dead on the spot.” Two hours later, the same vehicle carrying two masked men drove her to another hospital. Hilda is in critical condition right now and fighting for life. 

On Nov. 15, Cilliers said he was “shattered” by his wife’s death in an Instagram tribute.

“I cannot believe that you have left. From us. Taken from me. I don’t understand how this cruel world can exist. His words were: “How is it possible for people to be so cruel.” Your light was the star in my sky. The guide star of my life. I can see the twinkle in your eye. My tongue. The precious moments that we shared will remain in my heart forever. That’s not all. More memories are what I seek with you. It would be a great honor to share more of my memories with you.
