A second suspect was arrested in connection with the disappearance of Alabama college student Aniah Blanchard. The Auburn, Alabama, Police Department, along with the US Marshals Task Force, arrested Antwain Shamar Fisher, 35, of Montgomery and charged him with first-degree kidnapping. Fisher, who also goes by the nickname “Squirmy,” is being held in the Lee County Jail.
Fisher’s arrest comes just after prosecutors ordered the first suspect in the kidnapping, Ibraheem Yazeed, to submit a DNA sample. Authorities are unable to answer further questions about Fisher and the case because of a gag order put into effect earlier in the month, Auburn Chief of Police Paul Register said.
Blanchard, 19, the step-daughter of UFC heavyweight Walt Harris, was last seen on the evening of October 23. Two days later, her SUV was found damaged in an apartment complex an hour away in Montgomery, Alabama. A witness, whose name hasn’t been made public, testified this week that that he saw Blanchard being abducted outside of a convenience store in Auburn.
