The brother of Ghislaine Maxwell is speaking out this week to reveal why his sister thinks that the billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was murdered in prison.
Authorities claim that Epstein killed himself in prison in August 2019 while awaiting trial on various sex crime charges. However, Ghislaine’s older brother Ian Maxwell told the Spectator podcast that “my sister does think that he was killed.”
Ian compared the conspiracy theories surrounding Epstein’s death to those that swirled around the death of his own father, Robert Maxwell. Daily Mail reported that the father of Ian and Ghislaine was found dead in the Atlantic Ocean back in 1991 after he apparently fell overboard from his yacht. Robert was in significant debt at the time and was set to default on millions of pounds in loans, which would ultimately cause his business empire to collapse.
“‘I don’t buy a lot of the conspiracy theories at all,” Ian said on the podcast. “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.”
However, Ian went on to say that of his father’s nine children, Ghislaine was the “only one” who believed he had been murdered.
“And I would venture to believe that she may also think that Epstein was murdered,” he said. “I do happen to think my sister does think that he was killed.”
Ian added that he only met Epstein once in a 1996 meeting, and he described the billionaire as a “cagey character” who “took things from you rather than gave things back.”
Ghislaine is currently on trial for charges related to her grooming young girls for sex with Epstein and sometimes participating in the abuse herself. She’s been denied bail reportedly, and she recently spoke out to complain about the conditions she’s living in a New York City’s notorious Metropolitan Detention Center.
“I have not had a nutritious meal in all that time,” she told Daily Mail, referring to the over one year that she’s been in custody. “I haven’t slept without lights on – fluorescent lights that have damaged my eyes – or been allowed to sleep without constant interruptions. I am weak. I am frail. I have no stamina. I am tired. I don’t even have shoes which fit properly. They feed me rotten food. One apple had maggots in it. I have not been allowed to exercise.”
Maxwell is facing up to seventy years in prison if convicted on all charges.
