Tourists flocked to the Love Ranch Vegas in desolate Crystal, where the
35-year-old ex-Los Angeles Laker and reality television star was found
unconscious following a four-day escapade that reportedly involved
drugs, hookers and sexual enhancement aids.
Media from as far away as Britain were in Crystal as
well. Journalists stood in the establishment’s dirt parking lot in a
light morning rain. Many had missed out on a tour Wednesday by brothel
managers and clamored for new leads outside the roadside sex site.
One reporter for a U.S. paper said his editors authorized him to offer
$2,000 for photographs of the two legal prostitutes who found Odom
unconscious in a bed at the site. The brothel declined the offer.
