Meet Alix Tichelman, she is the high-end prostitute accused of injecting a lethal dose of heroine to Forrest Hayes, the Google executive who was found dead on his luxurious yacht in Santa Cruz.
Surveillance video taken from the cameras on the yacht showed the moment Mr. Forrest Timothy Hayes losses consciousness, and Alix Tichelman choses not to help him but rather gathered her belongings and left, but not before she gulps her last glass of wine.
Alix Catherine Tichelman, 26, from Folsom, Georgia met married father of five, Forrest Hayes, 51, through a website called Seeking Arrangement, they exchanged text messages ad emails before they finally met on November 23 on Hayes’ 50-foot yacht, Escape, at the Santa Cruz Small Craft Harbor.
Police said it was Alix who brought the heroine and who injected Hayes herself, he then suffered complications from the drug and passes out, Tichelman didn’t call 911, she just ditches out.
‘She showed no regard for him. She was just trying to cover her tracks,’ Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark said on Tuesday
Nine months passed before investigators could come out with the identity of the person responsible of the crime thanks to the video and her finger prints left on the glass, they could ID her, but catching her wasn’t easy.
We know they’ve had a previous relationship, they’ve shared time together before,’ Clark told KION.
‘This was all set up through text messages and emails. We also know what she did in the aftermath of this. We have her computer records, we know the Google searches that she made, the things she did to try to get herself out of this.’
A cop posing as a client with a $1.000 offer for *** lured her back from her parents home to Santa Cruz, the meeting was set to be at a luxury hotel on Fourth of July where she was arrested. Alix was booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree murder, concealing evidence and transportation of narcotics on Friday and remains there on a $1.5 million bond.
Her problems won’t stop there as she is being investigated for a similar death in another state.
Probably, that similar death could be that of Dean Riopelle, the owner of The Masquerade in Atlanta.
Riopelle, passed away from a heart attack last year, he was allegedly dating Tichelman with whom he shared her monkey fetish.
On two of her Facebook pages Alix Tichelman claims she is originally from Atlanta, went to Henry W, Grady High school, studied cosmetology at Paul Mitchell and journalism at Georgia State University, she also said of being a stripper at Larry Flint’s Hustler Club and working at ULTA Beauty as a creative division artist.
