Accused assistant to Murray Hill Madame Kristin Davis, Grace O'Toole, turned herself in yesterday, perhaps realizing that escape from both the NYPD and the NY Media was an impossible mission. After her alleged boss was arrested and jailed on $2 million bail for running a prostitution ring linked to former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, O'Toole took off, although she was described very accurately by someone who witnessed her flight as wearing over-sized sunglasses, and carrying a travel tote and pet carrier. Cops had her Bronx apartment and her mother's NJ home staked out, and obviously the media weren't going to let the alleged call-girl ring back office operator evade attention, if not justice.

The 24-year-old was allegedly in charge of booking appointments and billing johns for Kristin Davis' sprawling Murray Hill prostitution business. Cops have already seized computer spreadsheets that implicate thousands of men as customers, including (allegedly!) Spitzer and Rangers forward Sean Avery. Avery actually thinks a rival used his name and real number when booking Davis's services.

An online profile details a fairly common life of a young woman in NYC, trying to figure out what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. Some of the goals include owning a dog, saving six months' living expenses, and getting out of debt. She claimed she eventually wanted to work at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, and was studying off and on for a degree in horticulture at Bronx Community College.
