A high-end prostitute has been accused of giving Google executive Forrest Timothy Hayes, 51, a lethal dose of heroin while on his yacht in Santa Cruz, Calif., and on July 9 it was revealed that not only did she sip wine while Hayes died, but that she’s been posting messages about her love for killing sprees on Facebook.
Alix Catherine Tichelman, a 26-year-old woman police describe as a high-end prostitute, was charged with manslaughter in the Nov. 2013 death of Google executive Forrest Timothy Hayes, 51, on July 9 — but it’s the details of the case that are truly disturbing.
Alix Tichelman Shot Up Google Exec With Heroin & Watched Him Die
Alix was arrested on suspicion of murder on July 4 after surveillance cameras from Hayes’ yacht caught her allegedly injecting him with a lethal dose of heroin, according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel. Not only that, footage also showed her making no effort to help Hayes as he lost consciousness — instead, she was seen gathering her belongings and even gulping from a glass of wine before leaving the scene.
“She showed no regard for him. She was just trying to cover her tracks,” Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark said.
Hayes and the call girl had been having an ongoing pay-for-sex relationship after they allegedly met on the “sugar daddy” website, Seekingarrangement.com. After police identified Alix from the video, they tracked her down and lured her in using a prostitution sting. Upon her arrest, Alix was charged with seven crimes — including drug and prostitution counts — but not murder.
Alix Tichelman: Has She Killed Before?
But after further digging, police are beginning to suspect that Alix intentionally killed Hayes — and that she has committed crimes like this before. First of all her Facebook, which is loaded with pictures of herself in scantily-clad outfits, also includes posts that suggest she has a serious dark side. “It’s really nice to talk with someone about killing sprees and murdering people in cold blood… and they love it too. no judgement. yay!” she wrote in June. And on July 1, she posted, “Yes!! can’t wait to have my carry/conceal be valid again. Going back to GA next week.”
Even more seriously, Alix was involved in a similar case within the past year in which a so-called “boyfriend” died overdosed and died. “It shows that she’s done this before,” NBC Bay Area legal expert Steven Clark said. “She knows what the potential results are… She’s had someone die.”
Alix is yet to enter a plea and is being held on $1.5 million bail.
