Police: High-end prostitute gave client Heroin, watched him die
Alix Catherine Tichleman, 26, accused of giving man lethal dose of Heroin
Santa Cruz, CA - Santa Cruz Police arrested a Folsom woman Friday for allegedly giving a man a lethal dose of heroin and watching him die.
Police found the man dead aboard a boat in Santa Cruz's small craft harbor on Nov. 23, 2013. Investigators say they identified 26-year-old Alix Tichleman, of Folsom, as someone the 51-year-old victim had an "ongoing prostitution relationship" with.
Tichleman was reportedly a high-priced, outcall prostitute. Police say she bragged of having more than 200 client relationships.
She was identified as the suspect after detectives looked through texts and emails belonging to her, police said.
Investigators say Tichleman met with the man and injected him with heroin during their visit.
Surveillance footage from aboard the man's yacht, according to police, shows Tichleman gathering her things and even finishing a glass of wine as the man died. Police added that at no point did Tichleman call 911.
Tichleman was arrested July 4 after detectives posed as a potential client. She was booked into jail on charges of murder, destruction of evidence and transporting and providing narcotics.
Investigators say they believe Tichleman was involved in a similar case in another state.
