Ibraheem Yazeed — the main suspect in the kidnapping of Aniah Blanchard — has been denied bond in his case.
Yazeed was initially charged without bond, but his latest appeal was denied by a Lee County judge on Wednesday according to MMA Junkie. In addition, he has been ordered to submit a DNA test despite his attorney Elijah Beaver’s failed attempts at getting it overruled.
Blanchard has been missing since late last month. The 19-year-old stepdaughter of UFC heavyweight Walt Harris was last seen at a gas station in Auburn, Alabama. Her car was later found with the “DNA of a male profile” which is why Yazeed is now being ordered to take a test.
Yazeed was also allegedly seen by a witness “forcing Blanchard into a vehicle against her will and then leaving with her in the vehicle.” In addition, Yazeed’s charging documents showed that there was blood “indicative of someone suffering a life-threatening injury” in Blanchard’s vehicle. The witness was not publicly identified in the courtroom.
Yazeed was arrested on November 7. He was out on bond for a kidnapping and attempted murder from another jurisdiction at the time.
