The saga of Jeffrey Epstein continues to mutate this week, as employees of his Zorro Ranch in New Mexico are coming forward.
The tales being told by those formerly in the alleged sex trafficker’s employ have added a level of high strangeness to Epstein’s legacy that simply defy belief.
“We had to be escorted in on a truck with other employees, and, once inside, we had to put little hospital booties over our feet — and it was mandated that we are escorted everywhere we went and use side entrances,” the contractor said. “About every 3 minutes someone would come down to keep an eye on us while we were working.”

The former worker also described being alerted whenever a “special guest” was on the premises — which sent the already heavily-secured compound into overdrive.
Given Epstein’s well-connected nature, these “special guests” may have been political dignitaries, Hollywood A-listers, or any number of combinations of the two.
And why New Mexico?
Nonetheless, Epstein started spending more and more time at the stately New Mexico abode after his 2008 conviction — perhaps an easy choice given that it was the only state where he was not required to register as a sex offender.
Epstein’s suicide has called into question the future of the cases against him, as well over a dozen woman now stand accusing the late pedophile of coercing them into sexual slavery when they were still children.
