TARPON SPRINGS - Police were called to the home of DC Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey's mother on Thursday to investigate her apparent suicide.
Police have confirmed that the dead person is Palfrey who was 52.
Palfrey was dubbed "The DC Madam" by the national media after her arrest for allegedly running an upscale call girl ring in the nation's capitol.
Suicide my a**
And Ron Brown died in a plane crash.
Who inherited the black book?
I know. I was just thinking “Gosh, where would someone EVER find a hitman in Florida?”
My first thought too....LOL
Something smells fishy./Just Asking - seoul62........
Hope she had her little black book on every media type available and spread out among a dozen bank security boxes.
Check THIS out!
BJ must have been in the black book.
Interesting Florida ping...
New Book: "The Lady Who Knew Too Much".
I hope she has something tucked in a vault someplace....videos, photos etc., to nab "SOMEONE" in this.
Wouldn't it be nice to see Bubba's face...The timing would be fitting....
Not if she planted the book in safe place just in case she comes up missing.
You could probably ask any random KID where to find one.
Sure it was a suicide. She chopped her own head off, cut her body into little pieces, and buried herself in her back yard.
This lady did a short (first hour) interview on Coast-to-Coast-AM with Ian Punnett recently. I don’t remember why I listened as I really wasn’t too interested, but I do recall Ian pointing out she could be in danger and she seemed to realize that but did not care. One take on that could be she planned this “suicide” all along but there are so many other conspiracy-theory possibilities.
RIP in any case.
Can you imagine the turmoil during the election if he was in the book.
Suicide, my a**....
She wouldnt have been afraid of going to jail no, no, no!
This woman started her business in January 1993 just as the newcomers from Arkansas and all of their cronies were setting up office in Washington, D.C.
(May she Rest In Peace)
Sure seems mysterious at this point though..
If it was Tubba on the clientele list?
Then, it was a job.
Wheres Craig Livingstone these days? His whereabouts in the past 12-16 hours?
She was 52 and facing jail time. But still I am sure some people really wanted to see her dead. So I wouldn’t doubt someone killed her.
It’s fun to speculate, but she was facing a long time in prison and it probably is just what it looks like.
Our neighbor when I was a kid was arrested and found guilty of trying to hire a hitman to kill his partner, he couldn’t face jail so he did himself in within minutes of getting back home.
Lets see the facts before we start the real conspiracy theories.
two shots to the back of the head with a small caliber gun, three stab wounds in her back and a piano wire garotte around her neck.
But she was a stubborn cuss and wouldn't die, so she jumped from that 10th floor window -- nude.
I expect a cottage industry to spring up peddling counterfeit black books....
I don’t believe it for a minute. She had the dirt on someone.
I wholly admit that I don’t know. Just speculating, of course.
I thought Brian Ross at ABC had the book. Isn’t he the one who outed Vitner? There are either no more big fish republicans to nab or he’s waiting til election time.

Oh its fun to think about, but to be honest I doubt it wasn’t a suicide.
A bottle of ether and a couple of cinder blocks is a whole lot safer than a forensic team with a fine tooth comb if someone did it.
If it was a professional suicide I would think a Hoffa type outcome would be better. I mean people would think she is a flight risk anyway, she disappears it is just assumed she is in Mexico and there is no investigation.
Move along, no criminal mischief here.
I'd look in the "confidental papers" section of the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library.
Or from the movie “Mystery Men;”
“She fell down an elevator shaft...onto some bullets...”
I believe that NatLamp story refered to Salvador Allende, correct? (Yes, I’m that old)
DEVELOPING STORY: Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the 52-year-old woman known as the “D.C. Madam,” committed suicide Thursday morning at her mother’s home in a trailer park in the Tampa area, Tarpon Springs Police told FOXNews.com.
“It was her, and she’s deceased,” said Frank Ruggiero, a public information officer with the Tarpon Springs Police Department. “There’s no question that it was a suicide.”
Palfrey was found guilty on April 15 by a D.C. jury on charges of racketeering and money laundering related to her operating a prostitution ring.
She had threatened to reveal the names of her clients many believed to be high-profile political and business figures if prosecutors went forward with their case.
Ruggiero said police arrived at the scene at 10:52 a.m. Thursday and Palfrey was pronounced dead a short while later. He declined to say how she killed herself or offer other details.
Palfrey was reportedly staying at the mobile home of her mother Blanche, police said.
A statement releasd earlier by Tarpon Springs Police said the victim was found in a small storage shed located on the west side of the mobile home.
Handwritten notes were found on scene that describe the victim’s intention to take her life, and foul play does not appear to be involved,” said Capt. Jeffrey P. Young in a press release.
Pinellas County Medical Examiners will determine the official cause of death, and are working with the FBI on the case.
Anybody have a picture of Bill washing his hands?
DC Madam to living in a trailer park in Florida with her Mom “Blanche”. Haven’t heard that name in a long time.
Sounds like the beginning of a novel to me.
