A 26-year-old high-end prostitute has been arrested – accused of injecting heroin into a Google executive in Santa Cruz and fleeing when he fatally overdosed.
Alix Catherine Tichelman and Forrest Timothy Hayes met online on SeekingArrangement.com, a website where wealthy men find women willing to be their “sugar babies”, and struck up a relationship.
Tichelman allegedly brought heroin onto Hayes’s yacht in November last year, and tried to hide his body after he lost consciousness when she injected him with drugs, according to a Forbes report.
Cameras on the 51-year-old’s yacht captured the overdose, and shows Tichelman stepping over his body several times, including one time to finish off her glass of wine.
Surveillance footage shows Tichelman lowering a blind on the yacht to hide Hayes’s body before she left.
Police arrested the prostitute on Friday on suspicion of second-degree murder, after police posed as potential clients meeting her at an upscale Santa Cruz location.
According to the report, Hayes, who was married with children, was an executive in Google’s X division, and had worked for Apple in the past.
