After being identified by various media outlets yesterday, David Walker—the Morgan Stanley broker who was allegedly with the Millionaire Madam Anna Gristina at the time of her arrest—has been put on leave, Charlie Gasparino at Fox Business News tweeted this morning.Gasparino was also the first to publicize Walker’s name as many in the media tried to identify the mystery “Morgan Stanley employee” yesterday. Walker has not been charged with wrongdoing in the case. Gristina was arrested last month on charges of promoting prostitution.
Morgan Stanley has launched an investigation into the matter and Walker will be on leave until the probe ends, according to Gasparino.
After Walker was identified yesterday, DNAinfo.com spoke to him at his apartment on 55th St, where Walker told them he was home because he was sick. Walker said he was not with Gristina at the time of her arrest, though she was an acquaintance. He added that Gristina knew plenty of other people at Morgan Stanley.
