Second Suspect Arrested in Disappearance of Alabama College Student Aniah Blanchard

A second suspect is in custody in connection with the disappearance of college student Aniah Blanchard.

Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes confirms Antwain “Squirmy” Fisher was arrested Friday night in Montgomery, Alabama. He’s accused of first-degree kidnapping.

Blanchard, who attends Southern Union State Community College, was last heard from just before midnight Oct. 23, in Auburn, Alabama. Two days later, her SUV was found damaged in an apartment complex an hour away in Montgomery.

A week after Blanchard’s disappearance, police announced they believed she had been harmed.

Fisher is being held at the Lee County Detention Center.

Another suspect in the case, Ibraheem Yazeed, is also accused of kidnapping.

Yazeed was arrested Nov. 7. He appeared in court last week, where a witness named him as the person who kidnapped Blanchard.

The reward for helping to find Blanchard and any perpetrators involved in the case stands at more than $100,000.

Blanchard is the stepdaughter of UFC heavyweight Walt Harris.

UFC President Dana White pledged to contribute additional money to the rewards being offered.
