This is very supicious to me,”she vowed not to go to prison? If she was that worried about prison there is an appeal process in which she had not yet filed. I hope this case is investigated by independent sources, outside of the FBI.  Her list, not yet released would have ruined many a politician, if you know what I mean. 

D.C. Madam’ commits suicide, police say

Palfrey had been convicted of running $2 million prostitution ring

TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. – The woman convicted of running a high-end Washington prostitution ring that snagged a senator killed herself Thursday, police said, weeks after she was convicted on charges she vowed not to go to prison for.

The body of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, 52, was found in a shed near her mother’s manufactured home about 20 miles northwest of Tampa. Police said she left at least two suicide notes and other writings to her family in a notebook, but they did not disclose their contents. The mother found Palfrey, who had apparently hanged herself with nylon rope from the shed’s ceiling.

Palfrey was convicted April 15 by a federal jury of running a prostitution service that catered to members of Washington’s political elite, including Sen. David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican. She had denied her escort service engaged in prostitution, saying that if any of the women engaged in sex acts for money, they did so without her knowledge.

She was convicted of money laundering, using the mail for illegal purposes and racketeering.

But the trial concluded without revealing many new details about the service or its clients. Vitter was among possible witnesses, but he did not take the stand.
