Ghislane Maxwell Believes Jeffrey Epstein was Murdered, Fears the Same Fate in Jail
Jeffrey Epstein’s former ‘madame’ Ghislane Maxwell believes the pedophile billionaire, who was her ex-lover, was murdered in a Manhattan jail, and fears the same fate in pretrial detention at a jail in Brooklyn.
“Everyone’s view including Ghislaine’s, is Epstein was murdered. She received death threats before she was arrested,” reported the Sun on Sunday, quoting an unnamed purported Maxwell contact. Maxwell had reportedly contracted the services of veterans of the British Armed Forces, fearing potentially assassination attempts following the death of Epstein and a deluge of death threats communicated to her.
The Maxwell contact, who remained in contact with her throughout her time in hiding in New Hampshire, states that she believes Maxwell fears dying suspiciously in a manner similar to Epstein while in the Brooklyn jail.
Maxwell was arrested at a secretive New Hampshire getaway last month by FBI agents, in regards to an investigation probing her involvement in the deceased pedophile billionaire’s underage sex trafficking network. The Department of Justice is accusing Maxwell of procuring, transporting and in turn personally abusing underage girls for Epstein and an elite network of the New York financier’s political and financial contacts to abuse.
Maxwell broke down in tears last week when a federal judge denied her bail, citing the heiress’ collection of properties around the world and her “extraordinary capacity to evade detection.”
The Department of Justice is taking unusual measures to safeguard Maxwell within the jail facility, moving Epstein’s former madame from cell to cell to avoid ‘assassins.’
Maxwell is facing six charges related to sex trafficking, and faces a punishment of up to 35 years in federal prison if convicted.
