'Killer Call Girl' Alix Tichelman Indicted In Death Of Second Man

MONTEREY, CA — A former prostitute who served three years for the death of a millionaire Google executive has now been indicted on murder charges in connection with the death of a former boyfriend, according to a report.

Alix Tichelman, 31, was released from a Santa Cruz jail on March 29.

Fulton County district attorney said that Tichelman will be extradited from Canada to Georgia, according to KSBW 8. Tichelman has been indicted by a Georgia grand jury and charged with murder in the 2013 heroin death of Dean Riopelle. She has reportedly denied that she played any role in his death.

Tichelman was nicknamed the “Call Girl Killer” in the media after Forrest Hayes’ death in November 2013.

Police say she was partying with Hayes, a father of five, who had hired her for sex, on a yacht in California and doing drugs when she injected him with heroin. When he passed out, she then reportedly left the scene without calling 911.

Tichelman has always claimed that Hayes’ death was an accident. According to CBS News, she pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter and administering drugs to Hayes.

“When he fell unconscious, I did try to revive him to no avail, and I was very upset,” she said in an interview with Monterey Bay's KSBW-TV.

Surveillance video purportedly shows Tichelman leaving the scene with Hayes still passed out. CBS News reported the video shows Tinchelman stepping over Hayes' body, finishing a glass of wine, and lowering a blind before walking away. But she allegedly insists: “That’s not the case at all, I was in a complete panic," Tinchelman said, according to CBS News. "I was inebriated, I was on Valium, I had injected myself first. It looked to me like he was still breathing and it looked like he had passed out, and I know that in the past I’ve done drugs, and not woken up until 24 hours later and so I figured it was something like that — which was wishful thinking.”

After serving three years of her sentence, Tichelman was released last year and deported to Canada. She claims to be clean and sober and no longer working in the sex industry.

Riopelle, who was a monkey trainer, the lead singer in a band — the Impotent Sea Snakes, and also the owner of music venue The Masquerade in Atlanta, died at the age of 53 from a heroin overdose just two months before Hayes’ death.

An autopsy report described Riopelle’s cause of death as an accidental overdose of heroin, oxycodone, and alcohol.

According to his family members, he had been dating Tichelman for over two years and was living with her at the time of his death.

On the night he died, Tichelman called the police and claimed that Riopelle had overdosed taking painkillers and drinking.

But police in Milton, Georgia, began taking another look at the case following Hayes’ death.
