SANTA CRUZ (KRON) — A woman who attended a military-style school for troubled youths with accused prostitute and killer Alix Tichelman says her friend is “misunderstood.”
Tichelman remains jailed charged in connection with the heroin overdose of Google executive Forrest Hayes. Police say they have her on surveillance tape stepping over Hayes’ body to retrieve a glass of wine before leaving the victim without calling 911.

Tichelman’s arrest and her social media postings have prompted authorities in Georgia to re-open an investigation into the death of a rock musician who also died of an apparent overdose.
KRON 4’s Maureen Kelly spoke with the friend of Tichelman who didn’t want to be named. The woman says Tichelman was adopted by a wealthy family in Folsom. Her adopted dad is also a CEO. The classmate says the adoptive parents misunderstood Tichelman. She says while Tichelman has a “dark aura”, the Alix she knew was sweet and loyal.
