This week Guilty Rich looks at the death of high flying Google executive Forrest Hayes, who died of an overdose after being injected by a prostitute he’d hired.

51-year-old Hayes worked for Google X, the tech giant’s secret research department and lived in a well-to-do area with his wife and five children.

He used his luxury yacht to relax and get away from it all. But it also turned out he was engaged in some risky behaviour, sometimes hiring prostitutes to party with.

Guilty Rich airs at 10:00 PM on Investigation Discovery.
