520 |a Belle Brezing made a major career move when she stepped off the streets of Lexington, Kentucky, and into Jennie Hill''s bawdy house -- an upscale brothel run out of a former residence of Mary Todd Lincoln. At nineteen, Brezing was already infamous as a youth steeped in death, sex, drugs, and scandal.
