A wealthy woman murdered in central London worked as an amateur escort, while living alone in a flat just off the Edgware Road, a court heard today.
Carole Waugh, 49, was stabbed in the neck in her flat in Marylebone, the Old Bailey was told. Patrick Gibbs QC, prosecuting, told the jury:
She wasn't married, she didn't have a steady boyfriend. She was, it seems, a lonely woman on the lookout for male company.
She was a woman who had plenty of money. That was to prove her undoing.
She owned her flat, it was worth more than £600,000, she had savings, shares, jewellery, of which she was proud, and a cash income from working as an amateur escort.
