A high-priced call girl was arrested Friday for allegedly shooting heroin into a Google executive and fleeing when he overdosed.
Police say 26-year-old Alix Catherine Tichelman provided Forrest Timothy Hayes with a shot of heroin on his 50-foot-yacht in Santa Cruz, California, in November, causing him to lose consciousness.
Tichelman made no effort to help him, police said, and instead gathered her belongings and drank down a glass of wine before drawing a window blind and leaving. Hayes was found dead the next morning, the San Jose Mercury News reported.
Hayes, 51, was a Google executive who had worked in the auto industry and at technology companies such as Sun Microstystems and Apple.
Tichleman hails from Georgia, where she attended journalism school. On her Facebook page, she describes her professional skills as “exotic dancer,” “makeup artist,” “heavy metal,” “writing” and “modeling,” among others.
Police said Tichleman was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, destruction of evidence, and transporting and providing narcotics.
