Ghislaine Maxwell: & # 39; Secret & # 39; $ 1 million property where she was arrested


Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested in a luxurious house on a mountaintop called Tuckedaway outside of tiny Bradford in New Hampshire.

A neighbor told DailyMail.com that he saw two small planes flying around the area at around 6 a.m. on Thursday, but he went to work before the FBI arrived.

The house is a quarter of a mile on a steep dirt road. Brand new locked metal gates prevent cars from driving up the driveway where there are two buildings – the second was specially developed for "Square Dances and Hoedowns".

A man with a British accent came out of a second building and asked DailyMail.com to go, claiming we had entered the house. He described himself as an estate manager.

The four-bed, four-bath set on a nearly 400-square-meter lot on East Washington Road was sold to a company called Granite Trust LLC in December last year for $ 1.07 million, a reference to the Granite State nickname in New Hampshire.

Justice finally caught up with Ghislaine Maxwell on Thursday on this 156-acre property she secretly bought – and that's Tuckedaway, as DailyMail.com can reveal

The federal prosecutor said Thursday that Maxwell had been hiding in New England since July last year when Epstein was arrested.

She changed her phone number to one under & # 39; G Max & # 39; registered, changed their email address, moved at least twice and had them shipped under a different name when ordering delivery packages that they did not specify.

In a court document arguing that she should be refused bail, prosecutors said she had at least 15 bank accounts that she had or had been connected to in the past four years.

At times, their maximum total was up to $ 20 million, they said, saying their finances were "opaque and indefinite."

She was said to have registered a foreign bank account with a balance of more than $ 1 million in 2019 and had French and British passports and an American passport after becoming a US citizen in 2002.

The document also revealed that between 2007 and 2011 – including the time he was behind bars – Epstein transferred more than $ 20 million to Maxwell's accounts, which were then returned to his accounts, suggesting some kind of scheme, so as not to disclose the money to the authorities.

Maxwell has not been seen since last August when she was photographed at an in-n-out burger in Los Angeles ten days after Epstein's suicide

The photos, which were bizarrely staged, circulated, but then she went underground

THE FACTS & # 39;

According to prosecutors, Maxwell looked after three girls for Epstein between 1994 and 1997.

They are not mentioned in the indictment, but are said to have targeted them in London, Florida, New York, and New Mexico.

Maxwell is supposed to make friends with the girls by asking them about their life and schooling. She would reassure them by taking them to the movies and shopping, and gaining their trust to later deliver them to Epstein, they say.

To "normalize" the abuse that would come later, prosecutors say she undressed in front of the girls and asked them sexual questions.

The prosecutors say that it not only facilitated epstein's abuse, but also participated in it.

The alleged sexual abuse includes "sexualized group massages".

The indictment also says that Maxwell "felt obliged" to the girl Epstein by encouraging her to take money from him and make him pay for her education and travel.

Richard Yospin, the former owner of Tuckedaway, did not respond to a similar request, nor did the two brokers participate in the sale.

Special agent William Sweeney said at a press conference on Thursday that the FBI had "kept a discreet eye" on her for some time and that she had recently moved to the property.

The agents moved in this morning. No other circumstances of her arrest are known. She is supposed to dial into a conference call later that afternoon. It is unclear where she is or where she will go after the hearing.

A large jury recently filed a sealed charge against her, accusing her of inciting underage girls to have sex, actually having sex with them and Epstein, and later lying under oath in statements about it when Virginia Giuffre sued her Roberts, one of Epstein's accusers, says she had sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17.

The indictment relates to incidents between 1994 and 1997 involving three unnamed victims, the youngest of whom was 14 years old. The alleged abuse occurred in Epstein's homes in New York, Florida, and New Mexico, as well as in Maxwell's home in London.

Epstein has been accused of abusing dozens of other girls, and Maxwell is tangentially associated with the decades of alleged horror because, according to the prosecutors, she was always by his side or made arrangements for him and her.

Maxwell, the British socialite daughter of the late, disgraced newspaper magnate Robert Maxwell, whose impressive international network of friends and acquaintances includes the Clintons, has been a ghost since Epstein's arrest last June for sex trafficking. It was she who introduced him to Prince Andrew and prepared the London night in 2001 when the king was said to have sex with Giuffre.

On Thursday, incumbent US attorney Audrey Strauss said that the investigation into Epstein's decades of abuse had not yet been completed, and would welcome Prince Andrew to come in to provide an explanation of what could lead to speculation he was among the investigators could possibly turn their attention to next.

“We would welcome Prince Andrew who comes in to speak to us. We want to take advantage of his testimony. Our doors remain open. We would welcome him when he comes in and gives us the opportunity to hear his testimony, ”she said.

It opens the door to jurisdictional issues and whether or not US lawyer Strauss can file charges for alleged London and non-American incidents. The indictment alleges, among other things, that Maxwell cared for one of the victims in London. At her press conference, Strauss said that part of the sexual abuse had also taken place at Maxwell's home in London.

The charges against Maxwell are: conspiracy to convince minors to travel to engage in illegal sexual activity, seduce a minor to travel to engage in illegal sexual activity, conspiracy to transport minors with the intention of engaging in criminals involving sexual activity, transporting a minor with the intention of engaging in criminal sexual activity, and two cases of perjury.

If convicted, she could face a life sentence of at least 10 years in prison on the most serious charge – the transportation of a minor with the intention of engaging in criminal sexual activity.

The prosecution claims;

  • Between 1994 and 1997, Maxwell looked after three anonymous girls under the age of 18 in London, New York and Florida, as well as in New Mexico
  • She made friends with them by taking them to the movies or on a shopping spree, and "normalized" abusive behavior by undressing in front of them
  • She encouraged her to travel to meet Epstein and have sex with him and her, such as "group massage sex" in Epstein's homes
  • Her introduction to him led him to abuse her when she was not there
  • She lied in 2016 when Virginia Giuffre Roberts sued that she never cared for herself or had sex with underage girls

It is said in part: "Ghislaine Maxwell has made it easier for Jeffrey Epstein to gain access to underage victims, knowing that he has sexual preference for underage girls and intends to engage in sexual activity with them."

When she met Epstein, she had an amazing network of influential and important friends and acquaintances around the world, many of whom say he was drawn to her.

Among them are Bill and Chelsea Clinton.

She was photographed at Chelsea's wedding and also flew with Clinton in Epstein's private jet, which was referred to as the "Lolita Express" for bringing young girls to his private Caribbean island or ranch in New Mexico.

She was also photographed at parties with Epstein and Donald and Melania Trump years before Epstein became a social pariah.

One of the charges in the indictment is that Maxwell cared for the girls, including one in London.

Maxwell met "victim 1" in 1994 at the age of 14, the indictment said.

& # 39; Maxwell & # 39; took care of her by taking her to the cinema and on shopping trips.

She also asked her about school, her classes, her family, and other aspects of her life.

"She then tried to normalize inappropriate and abusive behavior by, among other things, undressing in front of her and being present when she undressed in front of Epstein," the indictment says.

The trio then dealt with "group massage sex" more than once, according to the indictment.

& # 39; Victim 2 & # 39; met Ghislaine in 1996 and cleaned her at Epstein's New Mexico Ranch.

& # 39; Victim 3 & # 39; met Maxwell in London in 1994 and was cared for until 1995, where she had sex with them.

At a press conference on Thursday afternoon, incumbent US attorney for the southern district, Audrey Strauss, said, “Maxwell attracted underage girls, made them trust her, and then led her into the trap that she and Epstein had set for her .

She pretended to be a woman whom she could trust while preparing her to be sexually abused by Epstein in some cases, by Maxwell herself.

"Today, after many years, Ghislaine Maxwell is finally charged with her role in these crimes."

FBI special agent William Sweeney said the office had "been watching Maxwell" for some time.

“We have been keeping a close eye on Maxwell for some time.

"She slipped to a beautiful New Hampshire property and continued to live a privileged life while her victims continue to live with the trauma that had been inflicted on them years earlier."

Maxwell hasn't been seen since August 2019 when she was discovered ten days after Epstein's suicide at an in-n-out burger.

She made no public comment about the scandal or Epstein's death last August, and her whereabouts are largely unknown.

DailyMail.com tracked her down in a small town in New England, where she lived with technical CEO Scott Borgerson in August 2019. Apart from that, their movements were a mystery.

Since Epstein's arrest and suicide, his victims have demanded that others involved in the abuse be brought to justice. Maxwell was always at the top of her list.

She reportedly approached girls in high schools, country clubs, and even the streets when she thought they would suit Epstein's tastes.

She would tell them that she worked for a rich man who would help them generously if they were ready to come to his home and massage him for money, the women say.

Giuffre shared the most explosive charges against her.

She claims that Maxwell participated in her first sexual encounter with Epstein and that the three had sex regularly.

She also claims that when she tried to free herself from Epstein, Maxwell threatened her.

Others have told how Maxwell made their trip easier and taught them how to sexually satisfy the financier.

When Epstein was arrested in Palm Beach in 2007, she stood by him and wrote in a character statement that he had helped her with her father's death.

From celebrity to "child sex dealer": How Ghislaine Maxwell grew up as the "favorite daughter" of the disgraced newspaper baron Robert and went from mixing with royals, politicians and humps to "procuring minors" for bills

Ghislaine Maxwell grew up good at mingling with royals, politicians and humps, but her privileged life ended abruptly on Thursday when she was arrested and accused of recruiting victims for Jeffrey Epstein.

As & # 39; favorite daughter & # 39; of the disgraced newspaper baron Robert, she had an impeccable network of contacts and a starry circle of friends.

The French-born celebrity, 58, spent decades at the most exclusive parties, pictured with Donald Trump and Prince Andrew, and drove private jets with Bill Clinton.

But on Thursday, Maxwell was arrested in New Hampshire for being accused of finding underage sex partners for the convicted sex offender Epstein. She is later to appear before a federal court.

An indictment said that she alleviated Epstein's crimes by helping Epstein recruit, care for, and ultimately abuse girls at the age of 14. She also said she had participated in the sexual abuse.

Maxwell previously denied the allegations against her. Epstein killed himself in a federal prison in New York last summer while he was waiting for the sexual trade trial.

Maxwell, pictured in 1986, had been an integral part of the New York social scene after meeting Epstein in the 1990s and had used their connections to secure access for both

Until her arrest, Maxwell had been practically invisible since fall 2016. But that was not always the case.

In fact, after speaking with Epstein in the 1990s, Maxwell, who speaks with a British accent, had been a regular on the New York social scene and used her connections to secure access to the most exclusive parties for both.

Maria Farmer, one of Epstein's prosecutors, told The Guardian: "Ghislaine was the key to making me feel safe."

She added, "I trusted her because she was a woman … she had that attitude towards her, you know, the popular girl in school, she was one of those. She knew everyone. & # 39;

She was born in Paris on Christmas Day 1961 to her French mother Elisabeth and her youngest father Robert Ghislaine. She grew up in Headington Hill Hall, a mansion rented by the city council.

Maxwell was educated at Marlborough College, then at Oxford University, and was used to a privileged lifestyle in public schools and Oxford. She is also said to be a helicopter and submarine pilot and can speak four languages.

But when her father Robert, one of the most powerful media magnates – and most notorious fraudsters – in modern history, died, her world collapsed.

Robert spent his professional career investing in the Israeli economy after losing most of his family during the Holocaust.

He died in 1991 at the age of 68 under suspicious circumstances after falling from his megayacht named after Ghislaine, the Lady Ghislaine. Her mother is said to have died in 2013.

Heartbroken, Ghislaine is said to have fled to New York at the age of 30, where she is said to have met Epstein.

She is said to have gone broke after it became known that her father had stolen almost £ 500m ($ 623m) from pension funds. Robert Maxwell biographer Tom Bower said she "worshiped rich, domineering men."

But the relationship was more complicated.

Maxwell used her impeccable social contacts and friendship with the prince to introduce Epstein, the son of a gardener, to society. In return, she used the financier's millions to support a lavish lifestyle that included a house in Manhattan's Upper East Side, a wardrobe with designer clothes, and helicopter lessons.

Robert Maxwell biographer Tom Bower said she "worshiped rich, domineering men."

Prince Andrew has publicly invoked his friendship with Maxwell as the reason he came into the orbit of the pedophile Epstein.

He accused Maxwell of bringing Epstein to Windsor Castle and Sandringham in 2000. "Remember that his girlfriend (Maxwell) was the key element," the prince told Maitlis. "He was the … plus one."

The prince corrected earlier reports that he held a Maxwell birthday party at Sandringham where Epstein had probably met other members of the royal family, including Prince Charles: "It was a shooting weekend," he said.

Photos of Maxwell also appeared, who joined a grinning Andrew and Epstein at the Royal Ascot Ladies & # 39; Day in 2000.

And, of course, it was in Maxwell's Belgravia Mews that Virginia Roberts Giuffre claimed that Epstein "sexually traded" with the prince for the first time when she was only 17 years old. This is an accusation that the prince has consistently and vehemently denied.

She was photographed at Chelsea Clinton's wedding and also flew with Bill Clinton on Epstein's private jet, which was dubbed the "Lolita Express" because it was used to take young girls to his private Caribbean island or ranch in New Mexico.

She was also photographed at parties with Epstein and Donald and Melania Trump years before Epstein became a social pariah.

Friend Euan Rellie said to Tatler: “Every single interesting, pretty, new girl arriving in New York would go for tea with Ghislaine and then be introduced to Jeffrey. She was the acceptable face of a rather mysterious billionaire. & # 39;

Maxwell lived with Epstein for years and was his frequent travel companion on trips around the world.

Epstein killed himself in a federal prison in New York last summer while he was waiting for the sexual trade trial. He was first examined in Florida and pleaded guilty in 2008 to having charged him with avoiding a long prison sentence. He was released shortly after a year in prison.

For many years, Maxwell has been accused by many women of having recruited them for Epstein massages that have been pressured to have sex. These allegations have never led to criminal charges.

The indictment said that Maxwell would "seduce and care for" underage girls as early as 1994 by asking them about their lives, their schools, and their families.

In recent years, Maxwell has been hiding in Manchester-by-the-Sea north of Boston with Scott Borgerson, chief of the technology company.

She has not been seen in public since a photo of her appeared in front of an In & # 39; N & # 39; Out Burger Restaurant in Los Angeles in August. There were soon reports that these pictures may have been "forged" by her lawyer to hide her whereabouts.

Now she has to face the allegations of the conspiracy to tempt minors to travel to engage in illegal sexual acts, to seduce a minor to travel to engage in illegal sexual acts, the conspiracy to transport minors with the intention to engage in criminal sexual activity, to transport a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, and two cases of perjury.

The indictment relates to incidents between 1994 and 1997 involving three unnamed victims, the youngest of whom was 14 years old. The alleged abuse occurred in Epstein's homes in New York, Florida, and New Mexico, as well as in Maxwell's home in London.

If convicted, she could face a life sentence of at least 10 years in prison on the most serious charge – the transportation of a minor with the intention of engaging in criminal sexual activity.

In return, she used the financier's millions to support a lavish lifestyle that included a house in Manhattan's Upper East Side, a wardrobe with designer clothes, and helicopter lessons. Maxwell is pictured with model Naomi Cambell in 2002
