Ghislaine Maxwell, British heiress and former girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein, doesn’t believe that the billionaire died from suicide in prison.
Sources close to Maxwell say she thinks Epstein was murdered and fears she will suffer the same fate after her petition for bail and house arrest were denied last week.
Maxwell is at the Brooklyn Detention Center awaiting trial on charges of conspiring with Epstein to sexually abuse minors.
“Everyone’s view including Ghislaine’s is Epstein was murdered. She received death threats before she was arrested,” The Sun reported.
“A family friend told The Sun On Sunday Maxwell, 58, fears she will be bumped off inside the brutal New York jail which warders describe as a ‘hellhole.’
Maxwell allegedly received death threats and prompted the British socialite to hire security guards.
The indictment from the Department of Justice “alleges that between at least in or about 1994 through 1997, Maxwell and co-conspirator Jeffrey Epstein exploited girls as young as 14, including by enticing them to travel and transporting them for the purpose of engaging in illegal sex acts.
The case involves high-profile personalities including Prince Andrew of the UK and former President Bill Clinton.
