Post Woman in brothel sting may be oldest profession's oldest madam

A WOMAN arrested on suspicion of running a prostitution ring in the US could be the world’s oldest madam.

At 80, police believed Vera Tursi could be the world’s oldest operator in the world’s oldest profession.

New Jersey authorities say Mrs Tursi has admitted running prostitutes through an agency called August Playmates.

Mrs Tursi, who is reported to use an inhaler and a walking frame, was arrested as part of a vice crackdown.

Police raided several illegal prostitution rings masquerading as legal escort agencies. Officers said they began to suspect her advanced age when they spoke to her on the phone during the undercover operation.

She could be heard catching her breath and used old-fashioned language.

Detective Sergeant Thomas Cornely said: "She used the word ‘dear’, as in, ‘That’s all-inclusive, dear’." more at link:
