At least a dozen federal agents were seen raiding Jeffrey Epstein’s former estate in the U.S. Virgin Island earlier today.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing some disembark from speedboats and scouring the grounds on golf cars. Other agents were seen scuba diving off the island’s cliffs.
The 71.5-acre private island, colloquial known as “pedophile island” and “orgy island” is at the heart of an ongoing child sex trafficking probe, despite Epstein’s death.
The Daily Mail’s Cheyenne Roundtree and Jack Wright report:
The search comes after 2,000 pages of documents detailing the lurid allegations of his sexual abuse of underage girls were unsealed to the public on Friday, adding more fuel to the fire of the government’s case of sex trafficking against Epstein.
One day after the court unsealed documents showing one of Epstein’s accusers claimed he trafficked her to former governor Bill Richardson (D-NM), Britain’s Prince Andrew, former Senator George Mitchell (D-ME), “another prince,” a “foreign president,” and a “well-known prime minister,” among others, Epstein was found dead of an apparent suicide.
Before his reported suicide, Epstein was left alone and not closely monitored.
The home – dubbed ‘pedophile island’ and ‘orgy island’ – is at the center of an ongoing sex trafficking probe into the criminal financier.
Allegations have been made that underage girls were used as sex slaves and repeatedly abused inside a temple on the island.
The raid came at the same morning that Attorney General Bill Barr issued a stark warning to Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged co-conspirators, telling them they ‘should not rest easy’.
