Vicki Morgan ran away to Los Angeles at the age of 16 in the hopes of becoming a model. When she met Alfred Bloomingdale, part of the famous department store family, she became his underage teenage mistress. When his wife found out a few years later, he broke it off with Vicki, causing her to spiral into depression. For the next few years, she became a drug addict, sex worker, and had a few more marriages. Financially desperate, she contacted an old friend from rehab and moved into an apartment together. Although they were just friends, he became jealous of her relationships and in July of 1983 at the age of 30, her roommate bludgeoned her to death.
