Suspect in Aniah Blanchard’s kidnapping, a convicted killer, is GRANTED BOND

The second man accused of kidnapping an Alabama teen whose possible remains were found on Monday has been granted bond.

Antwon Fisher’s bond was set at $50,000. His bond was granted on Monday without any objection from the state, according to WHNT.

Fisher, 35, and Ibraheem Yazeed, 30, are charged with the first-degree kidnapping of Aniah Blanchard, 19, from an Auburn convenience store on October 23. Authorities confirmed on Monday that human remains possibly belonging to Blanchard were discovered in Macon County.

Yazeed was reportedly caught on the convenience store’s surveillance cameras around the time of Blanchard’s disappearance. A witness at the store that night claimed he saw Yazeed force the teen into her car.

Two days after her disappearance, Blanchard’s car was found damaged and covered in blood at an apartment complex in Montgomery. Reports indicated that Yazeed and Fisher live in Montgomery.

Authorities had previously said the amount of blood discovered in Blanchard’s car suggested the missing teen had suffered a life-threatening injury.

Fisher, who was arrested on Friday, allegedly provided Yazeed with transportation and destroyed evidence related to the ongoing investigation. A third man, David Johnson Jr., 63, was arrested on Monday on charges of hindering prosecution. WTVM reported that Johnson is believed to have driven Yazeed from Alabama to Florida, where he was arrested on November 7.

At the time of Blanchard’s disappearance, Yazeed was out on bail on attempted murder charges — despite having a lengthy criminal history which includes arrests for kidnapping and robbery. Further, Fisher has a 2005 felony murder conviction for fatally shooting a woman during a drug deal in Montgomery.
