Just found this on the WJXT(Jacksonville, FL TV station) news feed on my Yahoo page. I’ve seen the billboards for various Cafe Erotica’s up and down southern Interstates. Didn’t realize the man trying to bring “sex” to little ol’ Waldo, FL was responsible for a larger operation-
A well-known and controversial businessman who owned Cafe Erotica in St. Johns County (St. Augustine) and was attempting to open an adult bookstore in Waldo died suddenly Sunday. 47-year-old Jerry Sullivan was found dead Sunday morning by his 14-year-old son. The Alachua County (Gainesville) Sheriff’s Office…said it does not suspect foul play. On Monday, Sullivan was scheduled to meet with the Alachua County attorney to mediate a lawsuit filed against the county over zoning for the Waldo business.
“The world is a less interesting place with Jerry gone, but he was also a good businessman and a good family man,” said Sullivan’s attorney, Gary Edinger. “He’s made arrangements so his various business interests will go forward as they always have.”
Sullivan also owned similar businesses in Georgia and North Carolina. Sullivan would have turned 48 this Friday.
(does over-exposure to sex cause premature death? I guess not since Hugh Hefner is still alive)
