It turns out that Nicole Linton, whose horrific crash took the lives of six people, was a waitress at a strip club in New York City. According to the Daily Mail, she went in as a cocktail waitressing after she lost a job as a sales manager for General Motors due to company restructuring.
The ICU nurse who killed six people in a horrific fiery crash in LA when she blew through a red light at an intersection plowing into traffic at 90mph, worked in a strip club and had a history of threatening suicide following bad break-ups, DailyMail.com can reveal.
Her life unraveled after Germaine Mason, the Olympic silver medalist she had planned to marry, was killed in a 2017 motorcycle crash.
Her attorneys have argued that she has a ‘profound history’ of mental illness.
Now DailyMail.com has learned more about Linton’s tumultuous past which includes several years working as a cocktail waitress in a series of New York City strip clubs including the infamous Sin City and Club Eleven both in the Bronx.
Those who knew her then recalled her as a ‘sweet and helpful’ girl, with former Sin City manager Mike Diaz posting on Facebook after news of the devastating crash broke.
He wrote, ‘Wow. This turns out to be OUR Nicole from the Sin City days.
‘Everyone who worked with her knows her as a pretty sweet, nice girl. I’m so sorry for her and especially sorry for everyone involved: this is heartbreaking. I hope the outcome is just and fair as possible for all.’
DailyMail.com has also discovered that Linton told friends she planned to marry British Olympic silver-medalist Mason, a close friend of world record holding sprinter Usain Bolt.
Mason, 34, was killed in a motorcycle crash while visiting Jamaica, the island of his birth, in April,2017.
According to one friend, ‘Nicole was different after that. She really loved that guy. She said they’d spoken about marriage. I don’t think she’s ever got over that.
‘I wondered when I saw what had happened if she was trying to take her life the way her ex lost his.’
One would think if the love of your life died in a crash and you are currently an ICU nurse that you would be extra careful on the road. Instead, Linton had been involved in 13 previous car crashes.
