Federal agents searched the East Side Manhattan mansion of Jeffrey Epstein, 66, and found a “vast trove of lewd photographs” of young girls, as well as hundreds of carefully labeled nude photos locked in a safe, according to USA Today.
The description of the apartment’s interior were laid out in a memo by prosecutors and aimed at arguing that Epstein should not be allowed to walk free while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking.
Epstein, who has pleaded not guilty to one federal count of sex trafficking and one count of sex trafficking conspiracy for allegations that he sexually exploited minor girls in multiple locations, was arrested July 6 after returning from Paris on his private jet.
The memo disclosed evidence that supported the sex trafficking allegations against Epstein as well as “hundreds - and perhaps thousands - of sexually suggestive photographs of fully - or partially - nude females.” CDs were also found with handwritten descriptions such as “‘Young [Name] + [Name],” “Misc nudes 1,” and “Girl pics nude.”
Prosecutors said that after the 2008 conviction in Florida that rendered Epstein a registered sex offender, he “is not reformed, he is not chastened, he is not repentant, rather he is a continuing danger to the community and an individual who faces devastating evidence supporting deeply serious charges.”
Epstein’s mansion is valued at more than $55 million and includes oddities such as a life-size female doll hanging from a chandelier, artificial eyeball made for wounded soldiers, and a chess board with custom figures, “many dressed suggestively and modeled after one of Epstein’s staffers.”
