Venus passing: Melodye Prentiss 1944-2009

Melodye Prentiss photographed by Pompeo Posar

Agent Triple P was sad to learn of the recent tragic death of Melodye Prentiss, Playboy Playmate of the Month for July 1968. She featured in one of our Pubic Wars postings as one of the first girls to flash their fur in the magazine's centrefold.

Pompeo and Melodye review her pictures

Born Melodye Panchesin in Chicago on December 14th, 1944 she studied fine art and painting at the University of Chicago and the Chicago Academy of fine arts. She was working as a part time researcher in the Playboy editorial library whilst at art school when she was asked to pose by photographer Pompeo Posar who ran into her in the lift of the Playboy building. A handy 5'5" tall and a trim 34-23-34 there weren't many Playmates when asked to list someone they admire who would have named Frank Lloyd Wright.

More recently she had a knee injury that required medication and latterly she was also prescribed more medication for a seperate chronic illness. The medicines reacted badly with each other and she was rushed to hospital with breathing problems. Unfortunately the idiots in the hospital connected her to an empty oxygen tank and she asphyxiated. A sad end for a lovely girl. Here she is in all her glory.
