Santa Fe, New Mexico — Days after disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein apparently hanged himself in jail, agents raided his non-public resort in the Virgin Islands. As of Wednesday night, they have not checked out his sprawling Zorro Ranch in New Mexico.
According to a number of alleged victims, it performed a key function within the convicted pedophile’s alleged sexual abuse relationship again to a minimum of the mid-90’s.
Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre has stated she was trafficked to the ranch as an underage intercourse slave, sharing images of herself on the property taken when she was about 17. An accuser, recognized as “Priscilla Doe” claimed in a brand new lawsuit Tuesday that Epstein coerced her to have interaction in intercourse acts there between 2007 and 2010.
It’s these alleged crimes that prompted State Land Commissioner Stephanie Garcia Richard to do one thing uncommon for a land administrator: flip over greater than 400 pages of data to state prosecutors probing these alleged crimes.
“I do know that there are nominal cows that had been run on this ranch. But no, it isn’t your typical ranching operation in New Mexico,” she said. “I definitely suppose there was a veil of secrecy. Access to state land was very safe and prohibited nearly.”
It was there that Epstein allegedly stated he ”hoped to seed the human race along with his DNA by impregnating ladies.” The ranch is the one Epstein property within the U.S. that has not but been raided by federal agents. In the meantime, the state lawyer normal’s workplace stated it can flip over any proof to the Southern District of New York, which, regardless of Epstein’s dying, is constant the investigation into his attainable co-conspirators.
