Two private islands owned by billionaire Jeffrey Epstein are up for sale for $125 million. On one of the two islands in the Caribbean, Little St. James, Epstein raped and abused underage women and girls. The banker committed suicide in a New York prison in 2019. He was imprisoned for sex trafficking.
Epstein was wealthy and owned two private islands in the US Virgin Islands: Little St James and Great St James. They are now up for sale for approximately €114 million. Epstein bought Great Saint James in 2016 for around $20 million (€18.2 million). The island has an area of more than 647,000 square metres. Nature is still very much the same. The island also has a marine reserve, Christmas Cove.
The younger brother, Little St. James, bought Epstein back in 1998. That island has an area of about 285,000 square metres. It has a main residence and four guest rooms. There is a helipad, as well as a private pier, two swimming pools, three private beaches, a gym and a tiki hut.
In 2020, the US Virgin Islands accused Jeffrey Epstein of luring girls and women to Little St. James, where, according to court documents, he “trafficked, raped, sexually assaulted and imprisoned” his victims. Some of the girls were barely 11 years old.
Proceeds from the sale of the islands will go to settle pending lawsuits and the cost of the estate. Attorney Daniel Weiner, who manages the Epstein estate, told the Wall Street Journal. He added that $121 million of that estate had already flowed to Epstein’s victims as compensation.
Over the years, Epstein appeared to have been in contact with well-known figures such as former Presidents Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew. British social media scientist Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of media mogul Robert Maxwell, was in a love affair with Epstein. She also helped him establish the sex trade. In December, Maxwell himself was convicted in New York of sex trafficking and recruiting girls with Epstein.
