Google Execs Death Blamed on Call Girl

/ 6 years ago


Described as a high price call girl, 26 year old Alix Catherine Tichelman has been charged with manslaughter over the death of 51 year old Google Executive, Forrest Timothy Hayes who was responsible for working on Google X and in conjunction with the Google Glass team. Hayes was found deceased on his yacht (named Escape) in Santa Cruz last November after suffering a heroin overdose.

The Police have reported of Tichelmans’ “prostitution relationship” with the 17 year-married Hayes after meeting over the website – a common “Sugar Daddy” website.

Police allege that Hayes arranged with Tichelman to meet aboard his yacht with her bringing heroin and needles. Video surveillance footage aboard the yacht shows Tichelman injecting Hayes, who then collapsed onto the floor. This video then shows Tichelman clearing evidence, stepping over Hayes’ body several times, finishing her wine, closing the curtains and exiting the premises.

After analysis of Hayes’ phone records, the Police determined Tichelman was a prime suspect in this ordeal. She was eventually reprimanded by a Police officer posing as a $1,000 paying client on Independence Day, 2014.

Thanks to The Register, we’ve learned:

“She was arrested on her arrival, and later charged with manslaughter, prostitution, destroying evidence, and administering and possessing heroin. During interviews with investigators, Tichelman said she had over 200 professional clients, we’re told.”

Tichelman is also being investigated by the Santa Cruz Police Department in a similar case in a different state of which she has not been formally charged for as of yet.

Hayes started his career in the auto industry, moving to Sun Microsystems to oversee server operations before moving to Apple and eventually Google. He was often praised for his professionalism, work ethic and devotion to his family as pointed out on his memorial page.

As it sits currently, Tichelman’s bail is set at $1.5 million as she is held in Santa Cruz Jail. She has attended Santa Cruz Court, but has entered no plea as of yet.
