The body of a murdered woman found stuffed in a garbage bag Monday in Lake Worth was that of a pretty, and very young, T’s Lounge stripper with a drug habit, Gossip Extra has learned.
Tiffany Nelson, 20, was dancing at the West Palm Beach club made famous by Octomom‘s botched appearance for more than a year.
Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies have deemed her death a homicide but won’t say how she was killed until they find a suspect.
“Her death was violent,” PBSO Spokesman Teri Barbara said.
The young woman lived near the L Street alleyway were she was found Monday morning, after cops were alerted by neighbors who reported a foul odor. The bag, next to an abandoned house, may have been there for several days without anyone noticing.
“It’s a damn shame,” said T’s owner Gary Odle, whose club made national news this year for hiring Nadya ”Octomom” Suleman then losing her strip show to a rival club. ”I hope they catch whoever did that to (Nelson).”
According to Nelson’s Facebook page, she loved riding horses on the beach and attended the Florida Culinary Institute in West Palm.
She also appeared to have a substance abuse problem.
In a Facebook entry last year she wrote: “SOBER & FEELING BETTER THAN EVER! I am and will forever just be me, smart, excited, maybe a little crazy at times, always smiling and laughing. I love to travel and I love God. But being clean is the most important thing!”
According to court records, she was briefly jailed twice in past three months, once for failing to appear in court and a month ago for possession of a crack pipe.
