Top US law chief warns Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘helpers’ that justice will be done and they ‘should not rest easy’

AMERICA’S top law official has warned that sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged co-conspirators “should not rest easy”.

US Attorney General Bill Barr said the billionaire’s helpers would now be the focus of the sex trafficking investigation.

The probe is thought to be zeroing in on British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

Others accused of aiding Epstein include assistants Nadia Marcinkova, Sarah Kellen, Lesley Groff and Adriana Ross.

The latter four are all said to have booked his massages with young girls and were named in his 2008 prostitution case as “potential co-conspirators”. They walked free while he was jailed.

Mr Barr said yesterday: “This case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy.

“The victims deserve justice and they will get it.”

Maxwell, 57, has gone into hiding after being accused of procuring girls for Epstein and taking part in abuse. She has denied the claims.

Epstein, 66, was found hanged in his Manhattan cell at the weekend.

Mr Barr said he is “appalled” and “angry” at the prison’s failures to “adequately secure” Epstein.


The billionaire’s death and its aftermath will bring fresh turmoil for Prince Andrew, who was introduced to him by Maxwell.

Andrew, 59, was alleged in court papers to have had three sexual encounters with teenage sex slave Virginia Giuffre — herself said to have been picked by Maxwell. However, Virginia’s claims were later struck from a court application.

The Duke of York has “emphatically denied” any sexual contact with Virginia and “categorically” denied any wrongdoing.
