'D.C. Madam' believed dead


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.

Deborah Jeane Palfrey was convicted of running a high-powered prostitution ring.

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.

State Department official Randall Tobias resigned in May 2007 after confirming he patronized Palfrey's business.

She argued it was a legitimate, legal escort service. E-mail to a friend E-mail to a friend

I don't like to speculate - but the reported suicide of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the "DC Madam," is difficult for me to fathom. The suspicion I hold that the "suicide" of this 52 year old seemingly vibrant woman, who could reveal the identities of the powerful Washingtonians who used her "escort" services, may not have been a suicide at all, causes me sadness - over the tragic death of Palfrey herself, and over my distrust of the powerful who have proven time and again that they will do anything to protect their fortunes and their "good" names.

According to the HuffingtonPost, (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/05/01/dc-madam-dead-in-apparent_n_996...), Palfrey had spoken out on suicide in the past when she reflected on the death of one of her former escorts, University of Maryland Professor, Brandy Britton. Palfrey said of Britton's suicide:

"This is a woman who was divorced, who was trying to raise two, ah, high-school children, college-age children... [Britton had] the great job title, the great position, all the respect in the world, but she wasn't making enough money. So she decided to do a little moonlighting... And she was publicly outed, is a good way to put it, she was absolutely humiliated. Ah, she couldn't take the humiliation. Her whole life was destroyed. And she, she just, ah, ultimately committed suicide."

From the tone of Palfrey's words, she seemed to view Britton's suicide as an unfortunate and tragic response to personal degradation and humiliation. Palfrey, herself, was feisty and outspoken in her defense of her escort service - claiming the services rendered were adult fantasies and within the realm of legality. She also believed the purchasers of the services should be subjected to public scrutiny and bear culpability if there was culpability to bear. Palfrey wanted to make public the names of her clients, which she claimed were listed in her "black book."

Earlier today I spoke with Arizona-based progressive radio host, Meria Heller (meria.net), who interviewed Palfrey prior to Palfrey's recent prostitution ring conviction. Heller said that Palfrey had been "vibrant and filled with future plans." Heller finds it inconceivable that Palfrey would have taken her own life.

The Florida police and Palfrey's mother have confirmed Palfrey's death. According to Florida police officer, Captain Jeffrey Young, Palfrey was found hanging from a nylon rope in a storage shed close to the home of her 76 year old mother, Blanche Palfrey, who discovered her daughter's body.

Obviously, without concrete evidence to support foul play, all I have is suspicion. To ascertain the truth, it is my sincere hope that the public - particularly the blogger community - will hold the authorities accountable for a thorough, open and honest investigation of this bizarre and tragic occurrence. In this highly political year, egregious acts are possible - if not probable - particularly when the futures and fortunes of the powerful are on the line.

Wayne Madsen thinks DC Madam was an operative

On Alex Jones? Sunday radio show, Wayne Madsen, the Washington, D.C.-based investigative journalist, author, syndicated columnist, and former security analyst with the NSA, revealed that Deborah Jeane Palfrey may have had crucial information about the attacks of September 11, 2001. Specifically, Madsen indicated Palfrey may have had information concerning intelligence gathered prior to the attacks, information possibly gleaned from government insiders by one or a number of her escorts.
