NEW: Convicted Sex Predator Jeffrey Epstein’s Estate is Sued by Three More Accusers
Although he may have died under mysterious circumstances inside his jail cell over a week ago, Jeffrey Epstein alleged victims are not giving up on their quest for justice. Three more of Epstein’s accusers have filed lawsuits against his estate in Manhattan federal court this week.
“Katlyn Doe” and “Lisa Doe,” two of the accusers, claim they met Epstein when they were only 17 years of age while the third, “Priscilla Doe,” claims she met Epstein when she was 20. They were recruited via a “vast enterprise” of associates, and then forced to perform degrading and illegal sex acts on behalf of the Democrat-affiliated sex trafficker.
The three accusers claim that the abuse continued even after Epstein made his plea deal in 2007, which resulted in him serving only 13 months in jail with a work release. Since Epstein’s mysterious death at the Metropolitan Correctional Center on Aug. 10, five separate civil suits have been filed against Epstein’s estate due to the recently enacted New York’s Child Victims Act.
Katlyn and Priscilla claim they were flown down to Florida to be abused even while Epstein was on work release. Katlyn was controlled with promises made by Epstein that he would pay for her medical bills. Epstein controlled Lisa and Priscilla with false promises that he would boost their prospective dance careers if they complied with his illicit wishes.
Katlyn also claims that Epstein coerced her into marrying one of his associates in 2013 so this unnamed foreign individual could become a legal resident of the United States. In addition to suing Epstein’s estate, the women are also suing corporate entities that they believe he controlled before his demise.
Two days before he died, Epstein finalized a will placing all of his property – worth at least $577 million – into a trust named The 1953 Trust, according to Reuters. Epstein’s personal property reportedly included $56 million in cash, $18 million in luxury vehicles, and close to $200 million in private equity and hedge funds. It is still unclear exactly how he accumulated his vast wealth and influence.
President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr maintain that there is an ongoing investigation that will get to the bottom of Epstein’s alleged suicide.
“Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death,” Barr said in a press release.
“Basically what we’re saying is we want an investigation. I want a full investigation, and that’s what I absolutely am demanding. That’s what our attorney general, our great attorney general is doing. He’s doing a full investigation,” Trump said to reporters about the bizarre ordeal.
But these alleged victims are not waiting for federal investigators to do the right thing. They are taking the matter to civil court, which may result in more of Epstein’s slimy associates and co-conspirators being exposed to the public.
