Cilliers was the beneficiary of a GoFundMe campaign that was set up to pay for funeral expenses and hire private investigators. This campaign has already received more than $131,000 of donations.

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 remains in critical condition, fighting for her life. 

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

“I cannot believe you have left. From us. Taken from me. This world is so cruel. 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. My twinkle. Your tongue whispering in your ear. Memories of the moments that we shared will remain in my heart forever. This is not enough. You are the reason I have so many memories. It would be a great honor to share more of my memories with you.
