A look at multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s real estate portfolio, where sex trafficking allegedly took place and a $ 77 million Manhattan mansion may have been acquired for $ 0
Epstein seven floors The mansion at 9 East 71st Street is proving to be just as mysterious as the multimillionaire himself.
Business Insider’s Benjamin goggin previously reported that the details of how Epstein became the owner of the house are not entirely clear. However, there was some sort of transaction between him and his client Les Wexner in 1995. Public records show that in 2011, ownership of the property was transferred to Maple Inc., a trust controlled by Epstein. Documents indicate that Maple acquired this property for $ 0.
Although there aren’t many photos of the interior, in 2003 Epstein cleared a reporter from Vanity Fair to visit the house. The interior has been described by Vicky Ward as a “high-walled, eclectic and compelling fantasy that seems to have no boundaries.” Decorations throughout the house included framed eyeballs made for wounded soldiers and a plush black poodle. In 1996, the New York Times reported that Bill Cosby, who is also a convicted sex offender, owned a house across the street.
Epstein is accused of luring young girls to this Manhattan mansion and sexually abusing them. According to New York Times, the miners gave Epstein nude massages and engaged in sexual acts with him.
