Deborah J. Palfrey

Madam Palfrey


When New York Governor Eliot Spitzer geared up to go after the Bush administration for their collaboration with criminals in the US mortgage industry, Spitzer was politically assassinated by having his private business as an escort agency client revealed.

Now the owner of one of the most active DC-based escort services - a favorite of Republicans including McCain and Giuliani - has "hung herself."

Not long ago, so did one of her employees.

And an assistant DA investigating a Republican Maryland governor for using an escort service committed "suicide" by stabbing himself 32 times and throwing himself in a river.

Deborah J. Palfrey: Just Another Suicide?


There has a been a wave of suicides, or perhaps "suicides", in the wake of 9/11 that have become more brazenly suspicious as time goes on. The most bluntly suspicious recently are the deaths of Gary Webb, and very recently, Palestinian activist Riad Hamad. (Hamad's death preceded Palfrey only by a couple of weeks.)

Perhaps Ms. Palfrey's death is a legitimate suicide, however, the deaths of people that are inconvenient to the powers-that-be seems to be chugging along at a steady, ugly pace. This is why people are suspicious. I have put together a little list of recent odd suicides, together with a seldom-heard segment from an interview with Ms. Palfrey in 2007. (The interview is from Coast-to-Coast-am, and I want to be clear that I do not offer a general endorsement of the radio program, but Ms. Palfrey is very frank and enlightening in this interview with Ian Punnett, and I hope you'll agree it's worth hearing. She makes it clear that she was not given a regular ride through the justice system, she was targeted, and persecuted, with post-9/11 surveillance of wire transfers playing a key part.)

Two exceptions: One is Anton Ng, who was flat-out executed in Guatemala, he was an associate of Danny Casolaro's, and was killed shortly before Casolaro while researching BCCI. (Researching BCCI was also not very good for Mark Lombardi's health.) Another is Dr. David M. Graham, who appears to have been poisoned, with an intent to make it look he poisoned himself.

Building Manager: DC Madam's Death Not Suicide

"She insinuated that there is a contract out for her and
I fully believe they succeeded," her building manager said.
