Toronto Police look to 72-year-old's work in sex trade for possible suspect

Toronto Police look to 72-year-old's work in sex trade for possible suspect | Sex Work |

She was known to her friends as the go-to person to prepare their income taxes. But 72-year-old Janina Wrigglesworth also had another occupation that involved an entirely different set of clientele.


Even in the months before she was killed, Wrigglesworth was involved in the sex industry, known to her customers by several names. One man knew her as Linda. A classified advertisement for massage services, posted in April of this year, carried her phone number and identified her as Diana.

Gracie Passette's insight:

This just makes me ache too:


A man who saw her regularly over the past year after finding her number in a classified ad, came to her apartment Tuesday, only to discover she had died.

“I used to call her and say I wanted to see her and she said, ‘Okay, come here, no problem.’ She would talk to me,” said the 72-year-old man, who declined to give his name because he didn’t want his family to know he’d been there.

Selling sex doesn't make you an unfit parent

"It's absurd that sex workers don't have more protection, and their reputation suffers from the victimization. Jasmine suffered from the reputation and from someone spreading lies about her," explained Jacobsson, who had professional ties with Jasmine through Rose Alliance, where the mother of two was a board member.

Jasmine told her colleagues in the Rose Alliance that the district court took away her children because she "romanticized sex work" and that it deemed her an unfit parent. Social services received a tip-off suggesting the she was using drugs and drinking in front of her children. There were even suggestions that the 27-year-old was working from home, Jacobsson told The Local.

"This couldn't be further from the truth. For one thing, she hardly touched alcohol, but also, she was an upper-class sex worker. She would be coming into Stockholm from Västerås to luxury hotels, just once or twice a week, for a fee of around 4,000 kronor ($610) per hour," she added.

"She was doing it all for her kids. And she enjoyed doing it. You tell me another job where a mother can earn 6,000 or 7,000 kronor a week and still remain a stay-at-home mum."
