Police say second Alabama kidnapping suspect disposed of evidence

Authorities say a second man arrested in the kidnapping of a UFC heavyweight fighter’s stepdaughter disposed of evidence in the case.

Police arrested 35-year-old Antwain Shamar Fisher of Montgomery on first-degree kidnapping charges in the disappearance last month of 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard. Police earlier charged 29-year-old Ibraheem Yazeed.

In an arrest warrant filed with the court Monday, police said Fisher helped Yazeed by disposing of evidence and driving him.

Blanchard was last seen Oct. 23 in Auburn. Her stepfather is UFC fighter Walt Harris of metro Birmingham. Blanchard remains missing.

Court documents quote a witness as saying he saw Yazeed force Blanchard into a car.
