D.C. Madam Dead In Apparent Suicide

Deborah Jeane Palfrey, best known as the woman at the center of the juiciest sex scandal to hit D.C. in a decade, is apparently dead from an apparent suicide:

(CNN) — A woman who police believe to be Deborah Jeane Palfrey, known as the “D.C. Madam,” was found dead in Florida Thursday, according to Tarpon Springs police.

The body has not been positively identified.

“Detectives are investigating an apparent suicide of a (white female) that appears to be in her early 50s,” Tarpon Springs police said in a news release.

Suicide notes were found near the body in a small storage shed next to a mobile home, police said.

Palfrey, 52, was reportedly staying at the home of her mother, who owns the property where the body was found, police said.

The Pinellas County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause of death, police said.

The county sheriff’s office and the FBI are participating in the investigation.

Palfrey was convicted last month in connection with a high-end prostitution ring catering to Washington’s elite.

She was found guilty of money laundering, racketeering and mail fraud. She was awaiting sentencing with a potential of 50 years in jail.

At least one lawmaker, Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, a Republican, turned up in the phone records of her business, Pamela Martin & Associates.

    Or perhaps someone had her killed to save their own political career. If I’m her, and going down while all these rich politicians are sitting on their high horse, I’m running my mouth like there is no tomorrow. Sad story.

    Well, it’s a sad day. She obviously took her own life and most of the blame in my opinion lies with the federal government and that lynch mob of prosecutors. America with its gang shootings, child molesters, ghettos, filth, racism and intolerance decide that prostitution is illegal and then have the audacity to strip a woman of her dignity, her finances and her life. May she rest in peace.

    How convenient for all of those”elite” politicians whose names may have been revealed had she lived to share her records with the media…should pose a lot of questions for police, FBI, and other authorities
