On remand for soliciting and fraud


Deceased - Drowned by Max Purvis

Background Edit

Virginia made her money through population, and running a series of brothels designed as massage parlours and strip clubs, became a very rich and got used to having everything she wanted. She was also able to pay people off – including police-officers, politicians, judges and doctors – hence why Virginia was able to convince people she was in a wheelchair from Muscular Dystrophy – she had dodgy diagnoses and certificates to prove it.

Sentence Edit

Remanded in custody – as a wealthy brothel madame, she was being investigated for soliciting and fraud.

Whilst in Larkhall Edit

Virginia proved to be a great influence on Tina Purvis – so much so that Tina adopted Virginia’s surname. But working with Fenner gave her enemies – especially when her fraudulent disability was discovered. She was drowned by Tina’s sister, Maxi Purvis, who set Yvonne up for the crime.
