Close Jeffrey Epstein Associate Wanted for Questioning by Investigators Vanishes Like a Ghost
French authorities want to question 72-year-old Jean-Luc Brunel, a long-time associate of dead child predator Jeffrey Epstein, about his knowledge of the late fiend’s illicit sex trafficking operation.
“The investigations will focus on potential crimes committed against French victims on national territory and abroad, as well as on suspects who are French citizens,” said Paris prosecutor Remy Heitz.
There’s only one problem: Brunel cannot be found. He has vanished like a ghost, and nobody has any clue regarding his whereabouts.
“There is no address for him, all his internet accounts, including social media, have been wiped out. He is uncontactable,” the insider told the Mirror.
Brunel is a legend in the modeling industry, having discovered some of the biggest names in the business throughout his multi-decade career. He is one of the men listed in the civil suit by child victim Virginia Giuffre as having sex with her while she was under Epstein’s control.
Epstein had reportedly invested $1 million to help Brunel’s MC2 modeling agency get off the ground in Miami. Brunel infamously sent Epstein three 12-year-old girls for his pedophiliac enjoyment as a present on Epstein’s birthday in return for the financial assistance, according to reports.
“The worst one that I heard from his own mouth was this pretty 12 year old girls he had flown in for his birthday,” Giuffre said, according to court documents.
“It was a surprise birthday gift from one of his friends and they were from France. I did see them, I did meet them,” she said.
She said that Brunel and Epstein exploited the young women based upon their family’s socioeconomic status.
“Jeffrey bragged afterwards after he met them that they were 12-year-olds and flown over from France because they’re really poor over there, and their parents needed the money or whatever the case is and they were absolutely free to stay and flew out,” Giuffre said.
Brunel has publicly denied his association with Epstein’s illicit sex operation, despite their long-time close association.
“I strongly deny having committed any illicit act or any wrongdoing in the course of my work as a scouter or model agencies manager,” he said in 2015.
Brunel was last seen scouting for “fresh flesh” in Uruguay only a few months before Epstein’s arrest, as he was on the prowl looking for more modeling talent.
“He spent more than two hours with us,” said a Brazilian model scout to the New York Post. “I brought my wife and 7-year-old daughter to the meeting. I knew nothing about what he had been accused of doing. I still don’t quite believe it.”
It is unknown whether Brunel is just lying low because he wants to hide the extent of his involvement with Epstein’s illicit sex trafficking operation to authorities, or if he was quietly removed by a power elite that clearly has many secrets to hide.
