Who is Giles’ husband Jan Cilliers?

Jan Cilliers, Giles' husband, posted a video of Giles on his Instagram feed, Jan Cilliers wrote, "I can’t believe you’re gone. Taken from us. From me. How can this world be so cruel. How can people be so evil. You were the light of my sky. Guiding stars of my journey. The twinkle in my eye. The tongue in my ear. The moments we shared will forever be burned into my mind. But that’s not enough. I want more memories with you. I would do anything to make more memories with you. My heart is shattered." 


Jan Cilliers' Instagram feed has several photos of himself with his wife. He regularly expressed his love for Giles on social media. Not much about Cilliers is available on social media, except the fact that he is 'self-empoyed'. In a picture of Giles that he posted several weeks back, he wrote, "Am I sorry for spamming you with photos of my gorgeous wife? No. Not even a little bit." "Happy Anniversary to the love of my life. You bring me so much joy every day. So excited to spend my life with you," another post said. "On Wednesday night in Deep Playa beneath the art piece called ‘Broken but Together’ we said YES," he captioned another picture.




Cilliers said he saw a video of three masked men dressed in black dumping the model's body out of a Toyota Prius without licenses plates after they pulled up to Southern California Hospital in Culver City. He further claimed that Cabrales-Arzola was left in critical condition by the same men outside a Kaiser Permanente hospital in West LA about a couple of hours later. He believes Giles was drugged after doctors found heroin in Giles’ system. He believes Giles would never use it voluntarily.

“(Cabrales-Arzola’s) toxicology report came back and I guess they found heroin in her system, which is nothing either of those girls would ever, ever do, not voluntarily,” Cilliers told ABC7. He also claimed that he has in his possession “all the messages [Giles] exchanged with anybody else that night", and that she was texting Cabrales-Arzola “let’s get out of here” at around 5:30 am on the day they went partying. Cilliers said Giles’ iCloud records claim that this was the last message she had sent before she was found dead. A phone app Cilliers and Giles used to share their location reportedly showed she was at a West LA apartment building early on the morning of November 13. A GoFundMe page has been created for Giles, and till the writing of this article, $90,377 had been raised of $100,000 goal.
