A dozen FBI agents raided Jeffrey Epstein’s “pedophile island” on Monday morning, according to reports.
Agents arrived on speedboats at the deceased financier’s private “orgy island” residence and were seen driving golf carts around the more than 70-acre grounds.
The Daily Mail reported:
Other officials with ‘FBI’ lettering on clear display were later seen overlooking the crystal blue sea from the top of Epstein’s remote luxury home off the coast of St Thomas.
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.
An anonymous onlooker who shot video of the raid said he was on a boat charter with several guests when they observed the agents arriving at the island.
“We were enjoying lunch when we saw over a dozen people getting off their speedboats and landing on the island,” he said.
“When we looked harder, we could see the FBI logo on the backs of their shirts. It didn’t take long for us to realize they must be conducting a raid on Epstein’s house.”
The alleged victims of Epstein said the island was used as a place for sex with underage girls.
Prosecutors also claimed he used his homes in Manhattan and Palm Beach to entice and recruit minors and build a “vast network of underage victims,” the Washington Examiner reported.
On Saturday, Breitbart News reported that Epstein was found dead in his Manhattan jail cell after he allegedly committed suicide by hanging.
Epstein was charged with sex trafficking-related charges last month.
However, the New York medical examiner said further investigation is needed to confirm suicide as the cause of death.
Reports said that Epstein was not on suicide watch at the time of his death and that guards assigned to his unit were working extreme overtime shifts due to a lack of staff.
