Hooker Jessica McGraa, 36, was on a working visit to Aberdeen, Scotland, where she lived before flitting south.
A pal said last night: “I can’t believe she’s gone.”
A man of 25 held over Jessica’s death is due in court today. The mum led a secret double life as a £220-an-hour hooker which only emerged after her body was found in a rented flat.
Jessica left her young son at home to sell s*x in cities across the UK where she offered punters the “ultimate girlfriend experience”. She boasted online of taking regular holidays around the world — before her death in Aberdeen more than 500 miles from London where she lived.
Shocked pals said she told them she earned good money as a stripper. A close friend said yesterday: “I thought she was a dancer in clubs — I had no idea what was really going on. But it doesn’t change my opinion of her.
“Jessica was an amazing woman and if that’s how she chose to make a living then that was her choice.”
Another pal — who met her clubbing in Aberdeen — described her as “a lovely soul”.
She added: “She was just a kind, genuine woman. I can’t believe this has happened to her.
“She was still young and just loved life. I can’t stop thinking about her dying.”
Jessica, born in Nigeria, advertised her services online under the names Ebony Bianca, Kelly West and B Bianca. Cops launched an investigation after she was found dead at a central property in the city she left to live down south.
On escort site Adult Work she revealed she charged up to £1,800 a night and took bookings from men, women and couples. She described herself as “classic, stylish, naughty, Hot, sexy” and promised to leave clients with exciting memories.
Raunchy topless photos had her face blurred out. She wrote: “My face is covered to protect myself as I’m ultra discreet.
“I have my regular job and a private life. Do be polite when you call me.”
Jessica, who is understood to have married in Britain, moved from Aberdeen to Manchester before settling in London. She flew back to Scotland every few weeks and made stops in Dundee, Edinburgh and Inverness. She was found dead on Friday — two days after she last logged on to her Adult Work profile.
On the page she said she was “currently on tour” and would only be in Aberdeen for two days.
She notched up 17 positive reviews from punters dating back to February last year. One said: “This is the stuff fantasies are made of.”
A relative in north west London said last night the family were too upset to talk. A man of 25 has been charged in connection with Jessica’s death and is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today.
