Tichelman, an alleged high-end call girl with some racy photos on Twitter, has been arrested on charges relating to the death of Google exec Forrest Timothy Hayes. According to the New York Post, Tichelman allegedly met with Hayes on his yacht in Santa Cruz. Tichelman then injected Hayes with heroin. When Hayes overdosed, Tichelman allegedly fled the scene.

CNN has published excerpts of some of Tichelman’s poetry, including a poem about cocaine. It reads:

“this private downward spiral-this suffocating blackhole
makes you feel so warm inside,
yet makes your heart so cold.
each day takes it’s toll,
your thoughts become emotionless,
your soul feels too old.
the demons whispers to me ever so lightly,
he never let’s go of his hold,
taking everything from me,
I’ll end up dying alone.”

Watch USA Today’s coverage of this developing story is below.

There is some question about whether the overdose was accidental or intentional. The Daily Mail cites those close to the investigation, noting that that there was a “level of guilt” at play. Additionally, sources close to the investigation have been quoted as saying that officials “know what she did in the aftermath of this.” Tichelman’s Google searches and computer records are in the hands of the authorities, and some of those searches appear to be incriminating.

The incident took place in November of 2013, but alleged femme fatale Tichelman was not arrested until July 4 of this year. According to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, Hayes and Tichelman had exchanged messages and met in person “a few times” before the yacht meet-up that ended with Hayes’ death.

A surveillance video showed that Tichelman did not attempt to help the dying Hayes, and in fact finished a glass of wine before drawing the blinds and leaving the yacht. It has also been reported that Tichelman stepped over the body of Hayes in order to have that last sip of wine.

Hayes is survived by his five children and his wife of 17 years. Prior to his death, he worked for some of the most notable companies in the tech industry, including Google, Apple, and Sun Microsystems.

At a pre-trial hearing in late October, Tichelman’s lawyer Larry Biggam told the judge that Tichelman failed to call the cops because she was “panicked.” Tichelman is being represented by Biggam, as well as by Gerald Christensen.


2. Alix Catherine Tichelman Faces Charges Including 2nd Degree Murder

ABC News notes that, in addition to a charge of second degree murder, Tichelman must answer a number of other charges. These charges include destruction of evidence and transporting and providing narcotics. Tichelman reportedly removed some items from the yacht, which may have hindered the police investigation.

More about the Santa Cruz PD’s investigation…

Following Hayes’ death, Tichelman left the Santa Cruz area. Subsequently, the police had to arrange a sting to capture Tichelman. According to Santa Cruz’s KSBW:

“Detectives lured Tichleman back to the Santa Cruz area by posing as a potential client. She agreed on a price in excess of $1,000 and to meet at an upscale location. When she arrived in Santa Cruz, Ms. Tichleman was arrested on July 4, 2014…Investigators did not release a motive.”

At the July 16 arraignment, Tichelman was represented by new legal counsel: Larry Biggam. According to a report in the Houston Chronicle, Biggam argued that Tichelman had no reason to kill Hayes. This was because Hayes was paying Tichelman so well.

Tichelman pleaded not guilty to charges of manslaughter, great bodily injury, and heroin possession at the arraignment. Further charges may be leveled against Tichelman by the prosecution as the investigation continues to unfold.

According to Atlanta’s WSB-TV, 26-year-old Tichelman spent some time living in Georgia before heading to California:

Alix Tichelman’s Twitter profile includes a number of pictures of her pet monkeys, including the one featured above. The unidentified man in the image with Tichelman and her monkeys is referred to only as her “BF” on Twitter. (Note: One eagle-eyed commenter identifies the man as Dean Riopelle, the former owner of The Masquerade in Atlanta, Georgia. Riopelle, a known lover of monkeys and other exotic animals, reportedly died of a heart attack in 2013.)

Some of the info on Tichelman’s social media profiles comes off as weird or downright disturbing, given the allegations against her. While there are some “normal” interests, some of her interests are decidedly dark.

5. Alix Tichelman May Have Been Involved in Another Death

Tichelman is also suspected of killing another person under circumstances somewhat similar to Hayes’ death. The investigation is ongoing, and officials are keeping the name of the other alleged victim quiet for now. However, we do know that the other suspicious death Tichelman likely occurred outside of California. Tichelman’s bail has been set at $1.5 million.

The Wall Street Journal quotes Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark, who is investigating the Tichelman case:

“Police are also investigating Ms. Tichelman in connection with a similar incident in another state, Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark said. He didn’t elaborate.

‘There’s a pattern of behavior here where she doesn’t seek help when someone is in trouble,’ he said.”

Some have speculated that Tichelman was involved in the death of former boyfriend Dean Riopelle. Atlanta’s WSB-TV notes that the investigation into Riopelle’s death has been re-opened in the wake of Tichelman’s arrest. WSB-TV notes Riopelle’s cause of death was a “drug overdose,” which differs from the cause of death in earlier reports about Riopelle.

CBS News reports that Tichelman found Riopelle’s body after she got out of the shower:

“Milton police Capt. Shawn McCarty said Thursday that Alix Tichelman, 26, called 911 to report that Riopelle, her boyfriend, had overdosed. She told investigators that he had been drinking and using heroin throughout the day, and that she found him on the ground after she got out of the shower.”

SFGate.com notes that Tichelman would meet her alleged clients through a website called Seeking Arrangement. The site caters to “sugar daddy” arrangements, and boasts over 3 million members. Tichelman allegedly met over 200 clients through the site, which aims to connect wealthy “sugar daddies” and “sugar mommas” with attractive young partners.

Never trust a hooker from the south in particular. They blur the line between vice crime and other crime (theft and violence). And they are no better in bed. Yankee hookers can’t be trusted either but the psychos are easier to spot and they are less violent. Better yet don’t screwaround with hookers period, it’s not a legitimate substitute for dating or girlfriends no matter what the hookup websites say. Take it from someone with too much experience don’t go down the road.

Hear all about this type of hit from my family they are violent criminals involved with drugs that have never gone to jail. My father was a steel/auto industry executive and heard many rumors about cancer hits, set-ups with prostitutes, arranged accidents. My family began to make death threats to me to force me to sign over my assets and use the money to pull scams like this. I refused and they had Ameriquest transfer my estate to Bank of America and the police soon began to threaten harass, intimidate and falsely arrest me to prevent me from reporting the crime. Right after the unlawful transfer of title I suddenly felt deathly ill and like I was superglued to the bed, that was right when my stepfather a millionaire was dying with cancer and my mother had rewritten the will to take his estate I was supposed to be protecting. The police ran me out of town and had my leg broken and followed me into the emergency room and had my leg mangled out of place and then I had to drive with a broken leg in a full cast and the police tried to ram me off the road and over and embankment and placed me under house arrest for exposing estate/Bank fraud. Just a year before when I traveled to Illinois to investigate a case of bank fraud the Illinois state police falsely arrested me stripped me of my clothes and tightly handcuffed me to cut off my circulation and put me in unheated paddy wagon below zero for 4 hours. Now police have been attacking me and my disabled grandmother female friend along with my neighbors one of which is a child molester on Megan’s list the police let him wear dark sunglasses for his mugshot. The police are heavily involved in these types of corporate, false rape, paternity, divorce scams and so are the judges, realtors and lawyers. I have been held since Jan 2005 in Ventura CA. under house arrest and 4 law enforcement officers have threatened to put me in a mental institution for showing them a “fake drivers license” and said I’m homeless well my drivers license is real and my zip code is 60010 the 7th wealthiest zip code in the U.S. all my vehicles were paid for as well as all my business equipment and my residence was nearly paid for. My mother told everyone I never worked and got all my money from the family and told me straight to my face that I was crazy and never owned a construction company and never built a home and the realtor listed the home as being built in 2011 I built it in 1999-2001 and that’s why I needed to be run out of town and placed in a mental institution so my parents, police, judges, Ameriquest and Bank of America could get away with it.
