(Newser) – A high-end prostitute from Georgia was arrested Friday in California for allegedly causing a Google exec’s heroin overdose, then leaving him to die on his 50-foot yacht. Police say that Alix Catherine Tichelman, 26, rendezvoused with 51-year-old Forrest Timothy Hayes last November in Santa Cruz on his luxury watercraft, reports the Santa Cruz Sentinel. Tichelman is suspected of shooting the father of five full of heroin, then watching as he lost consciousness. Video surveillance reportedly shows the callous-seeming call girl stepping over Hayes’ body, finishing off a glass of wine, then fleeing the scene.

"Rather than provide first aid or call 911, Tichelman proceeds to gather her belongings, including the heroin and needles," local police tell Kron 4. The news station also points out a recent Facebook post in which Tichelman wrote, "It’s really nice to talk with someone about killing sprees and murdering people in cold blood. ... Life is hard and then you die." Investigators lured Tichelman back to Santa Cruz by arranging a meeting with a fake wealthy client on the Fourth of July. She faces a raft of charges including second-degree murder, destruction of evidence, and transporting and providing narcotics.
