In October 2019, 19-year-old Aniah Haley Blanchard was reported missing. The police found evidence on Blanchard’s vehicle and had a suspicion of foul play after her disappearance. The incident was widely reported and a reward sum of more than $100,000 was offered for any information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of her perpetrator.
A month later, surveillance footage captured from a convenience store where Blanchard was last seen was released. The footage also captured another person suspected as the perpetrator, who was identified as Ibraheem Yazeed. He was finally captured in Escambia County, Florida after almost a month of the police search. He was charged with first-degree kidnapping but was upgraded to capital murder after Blanchard’s remains were found and identified. The autopsy revealed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound.
Her death led to the establishment of Aniah’s law, which sought to reform Alabama’s bail laws and expanded the exception to bail to other serious crimes aside from capital offenses.
Harris was set to compete against Alistair Overeem in December 2019, but the bout was canceled in early November after he pulled out of the fight due to the disappearance and death of his stepdaughter Aniah.
