He had connections to many important people from Bill Clinton to Donald Trump, to Prince Andrew of Great Britain, and many of the world’s wealthiest people. It has long been rumored that he has facilitated sexual activities for these individuals with underage girls and unwilling participants over the years. These connections have many people coming to the conclusion that Epstein was actually above the law.
He avoided so many charges of sexual misconduct for years, until he was arrested in July 2019. Facing what was clearly insurmountable evidence and allegations, Epstein apparently killed himself in his jail cell on August 19 2019.
Jeffrey Edward Epstein was born in Brooklyn, NY on January 20, 1953. After several failed career moves, Epstein established himself as a financial consultant to the stars and uber-wealthy. However, it’s a mystery how he actually came this level of prominence, as he had a long history of failed investments, major Ponzi schemes, and collapsed markets. His financial dealings have always been murky at best, but that never stopped the rich and famous from associating with him and his girlfriend Ghisaline Maxwell.
After being accused of sexual misconduct against a minor in 2005, Epstein was indicted in Palm Beach, Florida. He pled guilty to charges and was given an extremely lenient sentence, outraging victims and their families. He served his sentence in an unlocked cell, had access to much of the prison, was given weekends away, and had other unheard of benefits. His probation was never enforced and he was free to travel internationally after being released after only 13 months.
Over the years, ever more victims alleged assault and other charges against him, but he avoided prosecution until July 2019, when he was arrested and housed in a New York City jail. Deemed a significant flight risk, he was denied bail, even after offering $100 million to stay out of prison pending the trial. He was found dead in his cell on August 19, 2019. His attorneys, friends and others have claimed he did not kill himself, and the many vagaries of the situation have led many in the public to consider that he may not have committed suicide. Considering how many high-level people have been connected to his sexual crimes, it would be no wonder that they wanted him dead before he could testify or provide evidence of their crimes.
Epstein had several residences, some of which are listed on this website.
In addition to a main house in New York, Epstein owned a massive ranch, called the Zorro Ranch, in the New Mexico desert. Epstein had a mansion built on a massive mesa overlooking the 10,000 acre property situated between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico. The house itself has a large Z on the side, and is about 27,000 square feet, with a 2,000 square foot living room! The ranch also has an airstrip, firehouse, log cabin, pool, and railroad tracks. It is surrounded by high-security cameras and other anti-trespassing devices. All told, the ranch has an estimated value of $17 million.
Epstein has been reported to have planned to “seed” the human race with his DNA, conducting some of the activity at his ranch. Like other locations owned by Epstein, woman have made substantiated allegations of abuse and trafficking that took place here. Famous men, including the former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, have been connected to illicit activity at the ranch.
