How An American Beauty Queen Enraptured The British Tabloids

Peter Tory later said of the reporting experience, per The Guardian, “She told it in a colorful way, but there was no sense that she had ever been anything but a sweet country girl and she got caught up in this business in London, and everything was part of a Mormon conspiracy. I thought it was a bit boring really, but I thought, here am I involved in a great scoop.” The Daily Express ended up running its story on the same day as a competing story from the Daily Mirror, which decided to run a much more tawdry version, complete with nude photographs, writing “She called herself Little Miss Perfect. But there was another side to the runaway beauty queen Joyce McKinney. As a sex hostess she earned $25,000 in 18 months on America’s shady vice circuit.” McKinney was reportedly so upset by the Daily Mirror story that she was hospitalized and sedated.

Six years later, McKinney was arrested at the Salt Lake City airport (above), which at the time was Kirk Anderson’s place of employment. Authorities found handcuffs, rope, and a notebook full of observations and information about Anderson. As later reported by The Chicago Tribune, McKinney was charged with lying to the police and harassment, but once again left town before her trial, leading to the case’s dismissal.
