Building Manager: D.C. Madam's Death Suspicious

" ... He remains adamant that Palfrey was murdered. ... "

The death of Deborah Jean Palfrey, also known as the D.C. Madam, continues to be plagued by uncertainty. Among the conspiracy theorists is Joe Strizack, the manager of Park Lake Towers, an Orlando condo building where Palfrey owned a unit.

Strizack said even after reading Palfrey’s suicide letters, he does not believe her death was a suicide.

"No one will get into that unit until her mother does," Strizack said. "That place is sealed." Strizack said he talked to Palfrey the day she left for her mother’s home in Tarpon Springs, where she was later found hanged.

Strizack looked over the suicide notes, but he questioned if the notes were actually written by Palfrey, and if they were, he thinks they may have been written under duress.

"She could sign her signature a hundred times and it would be identical," Strizack said. "That is not her signature." He remains adamant that Palfrey was murdered.

"Monday morning a woman tells you that she’s afraid for her life, she told me several instances where people we following her, and Thursday she’s dead," Strizack said. "What do you think? If someone would put a hit out for her and id someone wanted something done they could do it."

Despite the speculation, the Tarpon Springs Police Department is sticking by their original statement. They said there has been no new evidence to suggest Palfrey’s death was anything other than suicide.
