Judge Denies Bond for Suspect Charged with Kidnapping Aniah Blanchard

A Lee County judge has denied bond to a suspect in the disappearance of 19-year-old Southern Union Community College student, Aniah Blanchard.

Court records filed Tuesday show that Lee County District Judge Russell K. Bush denied bond to 29-year-old Ibraheem Yazeed, who’s charged with first-degree kidnapping.

Blanchard was reported missing on October 24. She was last seen at a convenience store and has yet to be found.

According to charging documents, Auburn police said the passenger side of Blanchard’s car had blood evidence showing someone had suffered “a life-threatening injury.” A state forensics lab determined the blood was Blanchard’s.

The charging document says a witness told police he saw Yazeed force Blanchard into a car and drive away with her.

Blanchard is the the stepdaughter of UFC fighter, Walt Harris.
