Death in yacht leads to reopening of another case
July 11 , 2014
After the death of a Google executive on his yacht, officials are looking into another case of death in Georgia as the role of a 26-year-old alleged prostitute comes into scrutiny.
Alix Catherine Tichelman, who appeared in court on Wednesday, July 9, in Santa Cruz, California, faces several allegations in the death of Google executive Forrest Timothy Hayes in November. The 51-year-old was found dead on his yacht.
A couple of months before Hayes’s death, Dean Riopelle died in the presence of Tichelman in Georgia. Riopelle's death was attributed to an overdose of drugs and alcohol. But the police have now reopened that case.
