“In the interests of public safety, I can say that the investigation has determined Ibraheem Yazeed to be the lone person responsible for Aniah’s abduction and her murder, and he remains in the Lee County Jail without bond,” Hughes said during the news conference. “Mr. Yazeed remains innocent of any charges against him until his guilt is proven beyond a reasonable doubt.”
Antwon “Squirmy” Fisher was charged with kidnapping in the case and was denied bond during his court appearance last week. A third suspect, David Johnson Jr., was arrested in Montgomery, Alabama, on Monday, Hughes said. He is being charged with hindering prosecution. After Aniah’s abduction, authorities believe Johnson drove Yazeed to Florida, where he was eventually arrested.
