Jeffrey Epstein’s death in a Manhattan correctional center will likely go down in history as one of the most frustrating alleged suicides in modern history.
Epstein was awaiting trial on child sex trafficking charges when we was found early on a Saturday morning, hung by his own bedsheet. Now this terribly uncouth and evil man would not be forced to face his victims in court, denying them the full gamut of justice that they inarguably deserve.
But this hasn’t stopped some from lashing out at those who wronged them in such inexcusable ways, including Prince Andrew of the British Royal Family.
The jet-setting middle son of Queen Elizabeth II was a longtime friend of the financier who killed himself while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges. But the prince strenuously denies any knowledge of criminal behavior by Epstein and has described himself as “appalled” by allegations from many women who accused Epstein of sexual abuse.
Among them is Virginia Roberts Giuffre. She has said she was a 15-year-old working at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club when she was recruited to perform sex acts on Epstein.
Giuffre said in a sworn affidavit that she was flown on Epstein’s private planes to his properties in New Mexico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Paris and New York, and said meetings were also arranged for sex in London and elsewhere with Prince Andrew.
Buckingham Palace has consistently denied the accusations against Prince Andrew, despite increasing evidence of his intimate involvement with Epstein and these young women.
