Where is Epstein Island and what happened there? – The Sun

JEFFREY Epstein bought the island of Little St James more than two decades ago, transforming it into a high-security private oasis.

But where is "Paedo Island" and what happened there?

Where is Epstein Island?

Epstein's island of Little St James lies between St Thomas and St John, two of the largest islands of the US Virgin Islands in the Caribbean.

The 78-acre island was bought by Epstein in 1998 for an estimated $7.95million and was owned by Epstein until his death in 2019.

The private island has been dubbed by locals as "paedophile island", "orgy island" and "island of sin".

Who visited Caribbean Island?

Court papers allege that "prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well known prime minister and other world leaders" have visited the island before.

It is alleged that the American lawyer and academic Alan Dershowitz was seen on the island – a claim he has repeatedly denied.

Epstein's alleged madame, Ghislaine Maxwell, is also said to visited the island a number of times.

According to Bloomberg, Lex Warner, the chairman and CEO of the L Brands corporation (the parent company of Victoria's Secret), spent time on the island at least on one occasion.

Additionally, the former prime minister of Israel Ehud Barak told the Daily Beast that he had visited the island, though he explicitly said that he did not meet Epstein “in the company of women or young girls.”

Bill Clinton, who once travelled on Epstein's private jet, has repeatedly denied claims he visited the island or Epstein's other houses.

Spokesman Angel Urena said: "He's not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein's ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida."

More recently Mr Clinton has blasted "lies" in Netflix's new Filthy Rich documentary about Jeffrey Epstein's crimes.

The series alleges the former President was spotted sitting with the paedophile tycoon on the private Caribbean island of Little Saint James.

In a statement to the Sun Online, Mr Clinton's office fiercely denied the allegations as the series was released on Netflix.

Mr Clinton's spokesman Angel Urena said: "This was a lie the first time it was told, and it isn't true today, no matter how many times it's repeated."

What happened there?

According to Fox News, Epstein used his private island of Little St Thomas to traffic girls as young as 12 to his clients.

One former employee told Bloomberg that Epstein would fly the underage girls into St Thomas and he would ferry them to his private island via a boat called Lady Ghislaine. 

Once on the island, the underage girls and women say they were coerced into sexual encounters.
