At times, this entire Jeffrey Epstein saga has felt like a disturbing, over-the-top Hollywood blockbuster about international espionage and the depravity of modern man.
Epstein, who was handed an unbelievably lenient sentence on charges of child sex trafficking back in 2008 was arrested again in 2019 on similar charges. This time, Epstein escaped his fate only by death, allegedly hanging himself with a bed sheet in one of the most secure prisons in all of the United States. Given the peculiar circumstances surrounding his death, many Americans have refused to believe that he was able to take his own life, rather subscribing to the theory that the wealthy financier was somehow killed in jail. After all, this is a man believed to be extorting and blackmailing some of the world’s most powerful people with evidence of them cavorting with child sex slaves.
Now his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell has found herself in custody, and authorities are doing their damndest to keep the alleged pedophile alive to face trial.
The Post already revealed how the 58-year-old British socialite was forced to wear paper clothes and sleep on a bare mattress so she couldn’t hang herself with clothes or bedsheets like Epstein.
Now insiders have told the Mail on Sunday that prison officials are so “terrified someone will try to kill her” that they are constantly moving her around inside the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.
“She is being moved from cell to cell and sometimes has a cellmate, sometimes not,” an insider told the UK paper.
Maxwell’s trial may be the last chance at justice for many of Epstein’s victims, some of whom have already named her as an integral part of the sordid and despicable affair. Her death in prison would prevent them from receiving their much-deserved closure.
