Ghislaine Maxwell believes Jeffrey Epstein was MURDERED, says her brother Ian
Ghislaine Maxwell's brother has revealed that her sister believes that her alleged boyfriend and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was murdered and that he did not kill himself, as is the official report of his death.
In 2019, disgraced financier Epstein was found hanging in his New York jail cell while awaiting a trial for child sex charges. Following his death, several conspiracies started to circulate due to his connections to high-profile figures including former President Bill Clinton and Queen Elizabeth's younger son, Prince Andrew. There was also a series of 'suspicious events' surrounding Epstein's death, including surveillance video of the incident disappearing and him being bunked with an accused quadruple murderer.
Ian Maxwell: 'My sister does think that he was killed'
Speaking to Spectator podcast on Friday, December 10, Ian Maxwell, Ghislaine's older brother, said that "my sister does think that he was killed." The 65-year-old brother has been seen in New York to appear in court as Ghislaine, 59, currently faces six counts of trafficking women and minors for sexual purposes, which she denies. One of their other siblings, Isabel, also accompanies him to their sister's trial.
Ian added that the theories surrounding Epstein's reported suicide were not dissimilar to the ones that circulated regarding the death of his own father, Robert Maxwell, whose body was discovered floating in the Atlantic Ocean, in 1991, after he apparently fell from his yacht. The billionaire media tycoon was the owner of the Daily Mirror. At the time, Robert was in considerable debt and was set to default on millions of pounds in loans, which eventually led to the collapse of his business empire.
Ian told the podcast: "I don't buy a lot of the conspiracy theories at all. It so happens that one of the conspiracy theories is about my father that he was murdered rather than committed suicide or had an accident." He added that of his father's nine children, his sister was the "only one" who believed Robert had been murdered. "And I would venture to believe that she may also think that Epstein was murdered… I do happen to think my sister does think that he was killed," he added.
Ian describes Epstein as a 'cagey character'
Ian said that he had only met Epstein once, in 1996, when he was in a meeting with Ghislaine and their brother Kevin. Ian and Epstein did not warm up to each other as he saw the mysterious billionaire as a "cagey character" who "took things from you rather than gave things back." Ghislaine's brother dished on his sister being reportedly kept on a suicide watch in the Brooklyn detention center, which has been described as "one of the most troubled facilities" in the Justice Department's prison system. He confirmed that the suicide watch stories were "nonsense" as there was "no evidence of any self-harm intent."
The trial of Ghislaine Maxwell proceeds swiftly as the prosecution rested on the tenth day and the defense is now set to argue the British socialite did not recruit and sexually abuse girls.
