Jeffrey Epstein’s notorious apartment in Palm Bach, Florida, which is reported to have been at the centre of many of his crimes, is set to face the wrecking ball.
The Wall Street Journal has reported that the 14,000-square-foot, six-bedroom pad, complete with huge swimming pool and sea views, was put on the For Sale list in July for an eye-watering $22 million, as was a New York City apartment owned by the dead pedophile.
“Palm Beach is going to be very happy that it’s gone,” Todd Michael Glaser, the developer who bought the mansion, told the Wall Street Journal. The home features heavily in Filthy Rich, Netflix’s docu-series examining Epstein’s life and crimes.
In total, Epstein owned six properties. He was found hanged at age 66 in August 2019 in a Manhattan jail, while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges for allegedly abusing women and girls in Manhattan and Florida from 2002 to 2005. He had pleaded not guilty.
The Miami Herald reports that any profits from the sales of the properties will go towards compensation for the financier’s victims, via the Epstein Victims Compensation Fund, which was set up in June and has used non-judicial methods to secure monies from his estate for those he harmed.
