Update: 2020-12-18


This episode we discuss a female criminal who used her business of fortune telling in North Seattle to scam people out of their hard earned money.

In 2007 Sylvia Sutton chanced upon meeting the fortune teller Lady Monica at a street fair in Seattle’s International District. Sylvia made an impulse decision to have her palm read; one that would haunt her the rest of her life. Over the next few years Lady Monica, better known by her real identity of Brenda Nicholas, would scam Sylvia out of her life savings under the guise of “help” to cure a gray aura.

Unfortunately, that isn’t all Lady Monica did.

In 2011, when highly decorated war hero Patrick Fleming turns up murdered in his retirement home residence, police start piecing together a connection between Sylvia, Patrick and Lady Monica aka Brenda Nicholas. Brenda’s greed would be the ultimate downfall for her and her associates and eventually all responsible parties pay for their crimes.

We discuss crimes against the elderly and persons with mental health issues in this episode, a very serious subject, and felt that it was a good idea to mention the subject of loneliness these members of our community often face.
