It’s Donny with PureEVilMMA.com coming to you with another update. My goal in this update is to bring everyone up to date as far as the three suspects charged in the Aniah Blanchard case.
On November 25th, as you all know, the Aniah Blanchard case unfortunately took a turn that all of us feared. Human remains believed to be Aniah’s were found in a wooded area in Macon County, Alabama.
Three suspects in total have been arrested in the case. Ibraheem Yazeed, 29 of Montgomery, Alabama was the first suspect arrested. He was charged with 1st degree kidnapping and remains in custody and charges are likely to be upgraded against him since the remains of Aniah have been found. He has been ordered to stay in jail without bond.
The second suspect arrested on November 22nd was Antwon Fisher, 35 of Montgomery, Alabama. It is believed that Fisher aided Yazeed by providing transportation as well as disposing of evidence. Because of the gag order in place we do not know what evidence Fisher is accused of disposing. This is pure speculation on my part but I’m going to give you my opinion on this matter. Fisher went before a judge and was denied bond. Next thing you know, police get a tip of where Aniah’s body may be located and they find the remains. And guess who gets bond with no objection from the Prosecution? That’s right Antwon Fisher was released on $50,000 dollar bond. PureEVilMMA has also learned that back in 2005, Antwon Fisher was charged with capital murder and took a plea deal for felony murder. By the time of Aniah’s case, he had already finished serving the sentence for that murder conviction.
So let’s get this straight. Ibraheem Yazeed was released on bond in another pending case for 1st degree kidnapping and attempted murder. While out on bond, he commits this horrific crime against Aniah. Now one of his co-conspirators in this case involving Aniah has recieved bond after serving time for a murder conviction stemming from 2005. HAVE THESE ALABAMA AUTHORITIES LEARNED ANYTHING?
Lastly, we will talk about the third and final suspect arrested in this case. David Johnson Jr., 63 of Montgomery, Alabama was arrested and charged with hindering prosecution. When Yazeed (1st suspect arrested) was charged with 1st degree kidnapping, he was on the run for a short period of time and police found him in Florida a few miles from the Alabama border. David Johnson Jr.’s son David Johnson III admitted to police that he drove Ibraheem Yazeed to Florida knowing he was wanted. For whatever reason police didn’t charge Johnson III, however his father Johnson Jr., lied to police about his son’s involvement, so on November 25th the 63 year old was arrested. I have no clue why he was arrested but his son who drove Yazeed to Florida to help him evade capture wasn’t. David Johnson Jr. has since been released on $7500 dollar bond.
Police are saying they do not anticipate any further arrests and these are the latest updates I have for you now. My heart is broken for Walt Harris and Aniah’s entire family and they are in all of our thoughts here at PureEVilMMA. Keep it locked to PureEVilMMA.com as we will continue to have updates for you as they become available.

Sad news today as it looks like the search for Aniah Blanchard may have come to a devastating end.
Revealed earlier today by the Lee, Ala. district attorney, human remains were found in a wooded area in Macon County, Alabama that are believed to belong to Walt Harris’s stepdaughter.
Brandon Hughes, Lee, Alabama District Attorney, according to the Associated Press, made the following statement. “I can confirm that human remains have been found in Macon County on County Road 2 and we have good reason to believe they are that of Aniah Blanchard.”
Blanchard was seen last at a convenience store on Oct. 23 in Auburn, Ala. A witness states that he saw a man force Blanchard into a car and then drive away.
When the car was later found, it featured an amount of blood that was described as “indicating a life-threatening injury” had occurred.
Two men have since been arrested by police in connection to the kidnapping of Blanchard. Ibraheem Yazeed, 29, has been identified as the man forcing Blanchard into a car at the convenience store. Antwain Shamar Fisher, 35, was arrested for allegedly helping Yazeed in the disposal of evidence and providing transport.
Auburn Police further said Monday that investigators “obtained information regarding the possible location of a body.” That area was searched and they then discovered the remains just a few feet into a wooded area.
“A complete investigation is under way by (the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency) and Auburn Police to determine the identity and how the victim came to be at that location,” Auburn police said.
“The examination will explore if the remains are those of Aniah Blanchard.”
Until definite confirmation has been made, we will all here at Pure Evil MMA be thinking of Walt Harris and the other members of Blanchard’s family.

This is Donny from PureEVilMMA.com coming to you with another update in the disappearance of Aniah Blanchard. Aniah, the 19 year old, Step-Daughter of UFC Heavyweight Walt Harris went missing on October 23rd.
Ibraheem Yazeed, 29 of Montgomery, Alabama, was charged with 1st degree kidnapping in the Blanchard case and this morning at 9am his preliminary hearing commenced. Yazeed was seen entering the court room in his prison issued jumpsuit and while evidence was presented against him he sat for the 30 minute duration showing zero emotion at all according to courtroom observers.
One of the prosecutors for the state presented multiple pieces of evidence. He mentioned that DNA was found in Blanchard’s car that belongs to an unknown individual and there was a witness at the convenience store(as we know) who identified Yazeed, as the person seen stuffing Aniah into her vehicle against her will and fleeing the scene.
Prosecutors stated, “He(the witness)observed Yazeed forcing Blanchard into her vehicle and leaving with her.” Yazeed’s attorney questioned one of the detectives assigned to the case, Josh Mixon about the witness.
Mixon said the witness(who has yet to be identified) went into the convenience store around the same time as Yazeed and when leaving he saw Yazeed force Aniah into her vehicle against her will. Apparently the witness was staying at a nearby hotel and upon arriving he told his girlfriend about what he observed. According to testimony from Detective Mixon, the witness’ girlfriend said “it was none of his business and to stay out of it.” Mixon also mentioned that the witness felt terrible about not coming forward.
To close things out in regards to the DNA found in Aniah’s vehicle, Judge Russell Bush ordered Ibraheem Yazeed to submit to a DNA test and to remain incarcerated without bond.
As previously mentioned, Ibraheem Yazeed is not speaking at all, so please if you have ANY additional information please contact the Auburn Police Department at 1-334-501-3140. We will continue to give updates as they become available so make sure to come back to PureEVilMMA.com.
-NEW Update on Story (11/16)

Here at PureEVilMMA.com we have been trying to bring you the very latest updates in the disappearance of Aniah Blanchard. Aniah, the 19 year old, Step-Daughter of UFC Heavyweight Walt Harris went missing on October 23rd.
Ibraheem Yazeed, 29 of Montgomery, Alabama, who was seen on surveillance footage in the convenience store where Aniah was last seen, was arrested on November 7th in Florida, not far from the Alabama border. Yazeed, who was already out on bond for kidnapping and attempted murder in connection with another case, was charged with 1st degree kidnapping in the Blanchard case.
The judge in this case has agreed with prosecutors that Ibraheem Yazeed is a danger to the community(no shit Sherlock)and a flight risk and ordered him detained without bond.
We have also learned Yazeed’s next court appearance will be a preliminary hearing on Nov. 20. Lee County judge, Russell Bush granted this hearing on behalf of the defense and it’s scheduled for 9am.
This Friday morning, Walt Harris and Aniah’s Mother, Angela Harris, went onto the Dr. Phil show and gained a very powerful ally, who with his extensive following, hopefully can assist in bringing closure to this case. Mr. and Mrs. Harris both spoke about their feelings that maybe their daughter was set up in this case and that it wasn’t just a crime of opportunity for Yazeed. Dr. Phil also gave both Walt and Angela Harris time to look directly in the camera and speak to Aniah just in case she were watching. It was tear-jerking moment where both pleaded with Aniah to stay strong and they assured her they are doing everything to find her. Dr. Phil made a promise to Walt and Angela that all of his resources were at their disposal and to me that really is the most important thing about their slot on Dr. Phil’s show.
It’s important to note that Walt Harris mentioned that this asshole, Ibraheem Yazeed is not speaking at all, so please if you have ANY additional information please contact the Auburn Police Department at 1-334-501-3140. We will continue to give updates as they become available so make sure to come back to PureEVilMMA.com
We last came to you from PureEVilMMA.com with a very serious update in the Aniah Blanchard case. As you all may know, Aniah is the step-daughter of UFC Heavyweight standout Walt Harris. She went missing on the night of October 23rd.
Last time we spoke, Ibraheem Yazeed, 29 of Montgomery, Alabama was named the number 1 suspect in the disappearance of Blanchard and a warrant for 1st degree kidnapping was issued for his arrest. We also found out that Yazeed was already out of jail on bond for kidnapping and attempted murder.
Overnight, Yazeed was apprehended in Penascola, Florida area, just 3 miles from the Alabama border. So glad to hear that he is indeed in custody. However, we have also learned that from the investigation, significant blood was found on the passenger seat of Aniah’s vehicle that police say is “indicative of life-threatening injuries.” Now it must have been amatuer hour when Montgomery police initially found her vehicle and claimed there was “no evidence of foul play”
We knew that Ibraheem Yazeed came into this investigation because he was seen on surveillance footage in the same gas station on the night of the 23rd, when Aniah was last seen. However, we are now learning that according to police, a witness saw Yazeed force Aniah into her vehicle and take her against her will, driving off in Blanchard’s vehicle.
Luckily, as I said,Yazeed is now in custody and hopefully Walt Harris and Aniah’s family are finally brought closure in this case. If you have any additional information please contact the Auburn Police Department at 1-334-501-3140. We will continue to give updates as they become available so make sure to come back to PureEVilMMA.com.
Aniah Blanchard Update November 7th (4pm ET)
Last night, here at PureEVilMMA.com we came to you with an update in the case of UFC Contender Walt Harris’ missing step daughter, Aniah Blanchard. We learned that police had pin pointed a person of interest in the case who was seen on surveillance footage in the same gas station where Aniah was last seen before her disappearance.
We have now learned that the suspect in the case has been identified as Ibraheem Yazeed, 29 years old from Montgomery, Alabama. Auburn police have submitted a warrant for his arrest for 1st Degree kidnapping. WHAT REALLY PISSES ME OFF is apparently this scumbag is already out on bond for charges of attempted kidnapping and attempted murder in another case. I’m sorry but I have known of people who are arrested and aren’t able to get bond over selling a bag of weed. If Yazeed indeed is the culprit, if he was in jail awaiting trial for very serious charges in the other case, then this may have never happened. This case is taking heartbreaking turn after heartbreaking turn.
Ibraheem Yazeed, is considered armed and dangerous. If you have any information on the whereabouts of Yazeed, DO NOT TRY TO MAKE CONTACT WITH HIM, but please contact the Auburn Police Department at 1-334-501-3140.
We will continue to give updates as they become available so make sure to come back to PureEVilMMA.com and if you have any information please reach out to local authorities.
