Deborah Jeane Palfrey, recently convicted on racketeering and money laundering charges in connection to her Washington DC escort service, killed herself today.
Apparently before the trial, another woman involved with the trial, Brandy Britton, killed herself as well. (Time)
That's two deaths as a result of the high profile trial. In case you forgot, during this trial, the women who worked at the escort service were asked personal and invasive questions about sexual positions and menstruation and a navel officer was discharged as a result of her participation in the trial. What questions about sexual positions and menstruation were doing at a trial on money laundering and racketeering, I don't know.
In case you were wondering, none of the customers who used the escort service were charged or punished in anyway.
Don't worry - it's the women who worked for the service fault. After all, "when a man pays $250 for 90 minutes of time with a woman, what do most men expect?"
