Knock Out Knock Up Knock Off

tatchoBrookline – A 19-year-old who allegedly posted ads on the Internet for “erotic massage” was arrested last week and charged with prostitution at her mother’s Coolidge Corner day care facility.

Police made the bust May 6, after catching an ad on www.craigslist.com that promised the services for $175 for a half-hour or $225 for an hour.

Vibeke A. Gonzalez, 19, of 1469 Beacon St., Apt. 4, was arrested that day at 2:43 p.m., at her home and charged with offering sexual conduct for pay.

The address is also listed as a licensed childcare provider for Angeli Dapena, according to state records.

Dapena confirmed she is the teen’s mother.

“Young beautiful girl, in call erotic massage. Not full-service but none leave disappointed,” police reported the ad as stating. “Newly blonde, light eyes, delicate features, petite. Utmost of confidentiality.”

The ad reportedly stated the woman was available evenings after 7 p.m., and listed a cell phone number for appointments. Reports indicated the ad had been online since May 2, 12:06 a.m.

Wow! This story features quite a collection of the factors which pique our interest; illicit sex, the underground economy, a local angle (just down the street from our place of employment), web 2.0 phenom Craig’s List, the ironic juxtaposition of pre-school day care and post-grad night care, a beautiful woman, tattoos and weird names.

There is more to this story than meets the eye, and your intrepid reporter will tirelessly monitor the local press for more details and photos. For the perp in this case is strikingly beautiful, at least as far as we could tell from the video clips on the evening news tonight.

As if that were not enough, her dramatically plunging neckline reveals the most amazing tattoo we have seen in quite some time. It features ornate scrollwork and arcane inscriptions which demand closer inspection. Photos currently available do not do them justice, but a search is on for more detail.

Coolidge Corner is an upscale shopping area between Boston College and Boston University. It features residents from around the world, although we are flummoxed as to the origin of the surname Dapena. In Spanish, da pena means “it’s too bad” in the extreme, as in “oh, that poor, pitiful, thing” or what you might say upon seeing an ex-child star sprawled drooling on the curb from years of substance abuse and STDs. We guess it takes someone saddled with a name like that to work up the nerve to call their kid Vibeke.

Finally, $175 for 30 minutes! What a rip-off! Although we must admit Vibeke, appearantly working for herself, exhibits an admirable entrepreneurial spirit. Among other qualities.
