Private Caribbean islands owned by Jeffrey Epstein, the late financier who was jailed for sex trafficking, are reportedly up for sale for $125 million.
Properties in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Great St. James, and Little St. James, were some of Epstein’s major properties. The smaller of the islands has a main residence, which was a key location for Epstein’s sexual abuse allegations. The bigger one is largely untouched.
Modlin Group, Bespoke Real Estate, and Christie’s International Real Estate The Saints are marketing the islands, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Proceeds from the islands’ sale will be partly used to pay for Epstein’s remaining lawsuits, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing Daniel Weiner, an attorney for the estate.
For two decades, Epstein lived in the Virgin Islands where he was accused of trafficking and sexually abusing underage girls. He died of suicide in a Manhattan jail cell in 2019 while waiting for trial.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation had raided Little St. James for evidence against Epstein shortly after his death.
