A prostitute who allegedly killed a Google executive in Northern California is directly linked to another violent act against a man she dated in suburban Atlanta.
Alix Tichelman, 26, appeared in a red jumpsuit Wednesday facing drug and manslaughter charges in Santa Cruz, Calif., about an hour outside of San Francisco.
Investigators characterize Tichelman a “high-end call girl” who injected Forrest Hayes with, 51, a fatal does heroin and then was seen on cameras walking over him repeatedly while she gathered her things, drank a glass of wine, and left him to slowly lose consciousness then die aboard his yacht in California.
The apparent overdose happened back in November but police obtained new video evidence that linked Tichelman to the crime. Police said she stepped over him, gathered her heroin and finished off a glass of wine.
Just two months ago, Tichelman was arrested by officers in Milton, Ga., for biting her then-boyfriend, 53-year-old Dean Riopelle. Riopelle, who lived in Milton, owned the Masquarade, an Atlanta music venue.
That’s just the beginning. Two weeks after Tichelman was arrested for biting Riopelle, Riopelle died. His obituary doesn’t mention how he died, but there are reports from a local entertainment website that it was from an apparent heart attack.
Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark did admit his department is in cooperation with police in a different state on a similar case. Clark did not say which state that case was in.
