What happened to Hilda?

Giles' body was found outside of the Southern California Hospital in Culver City where she was later pronounced dead.

Cabrales-Arzola was then dropped off two hours later at a different hospital where she was put on life support with no brain activity and with "little possibility of recovery," according to Giles' husband, Jan Cilliers.

In an interview with Fox13, Cilliers spoke about the case, revealing that Cabrales-Arzola's toxicology report showed heroin in her system, which he insists is something neither woman would use voluntarily.

"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," Cilliers told the media outlet.

In an interview with The Sun, Cabrales-Arzola's father Luis Cabrales Rivera, 49,stated that she was brain dead.

"My girl was diagnosed brain dead yesterday [Nov. 26]," he said. "We were already expecting it to be bad news and we're trying to take it with a lot of strength."  

He continued, "I asked God to return Hilda to me in 100% good health but if she was going to be left impaired it is better for her to leave and go by His side." 

The LA County Coroner's Office Spokesperson confirmed on her 27th birthday that they had received her body.

According to her family members, Cabrales-Arzola's organs will be donated to nine different people.

"We're all devastated but grateful that God let us have her with us for almost 27 years and allowed us to come here and say goodbye to her," Rivera added.

"I'm grateful that with her last breath she will be able to give life to others and that she will live on in the heart, eyes, lungs, of someone else."
