Vicky Howden was married to one man, in love with another and pursuing a third for drugs and compassion in the months before her violent death. A British emigre of modest schooling but arresting looks, the 26-year-old Howden embodied the Hollywood dream unrealized. With one legitimate acting job to her credit, she stripped at bachelor parties to pay the bills and otherwise survived by keeping different aspects of her life in tidy, separate compartments. She did not, for example, mix love and marriage and had wed her American husband strictly for working papers.
