Sex worker implicated in Mother’s Day murder
Columbia — A 41-year-old Upper Midlands sex worker was arrested and charged with murdering a young man on Mother’s Day.
According to the Columbia Police Office, the sex worker, identified as Natalia Tucker, was on the job on Mother’s Day and got into a dispute with a 25-year-old customer over her rates. The incident happened at the Coronet Motel on MAIN ST in Columbia.
That’s when Ms. Tucker pulled out a small pistol and shot her client in the head. His body was found during a routine inspection by motel employees during the daylight hours.
