Ghislaine Maxwell, the close associate, confidant, and former girlfriend of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, could be a danger to herself. According to a report from the Associated Press, federal officials worry that Maxwell may commit suicide while in federal jail.
As a safety measure, the feds “took away her clothes and sheets and made her wear paper attire” while she is behind bars.
This report comes after news that Maxwell was “ready to name some big names.”
The report adds:
The other protocols put in place for Maxwell’s confinement include ensuring that she has a roommate in her cell, is monitored and making sure someone is always with her while she’s behind bars, the official said.
Maxwell is facing charges which include conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, and transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity
An indictment against Maxwell said that she “assisted, facilitated and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse ” girls under age 18.
Epstein was found unresponsive in his jail cell while awaiting sex trafficking charges.
Just 24 hours prior to the disgraced financier and convicted pedophile being found dead in his Manhattan jail cell, court documents were unsealed that named a bunch of powerful and wealthy men including a prince and multiple politicians. There is also the fact that prison guards did not check on Epstein every 30 minutes on the night of his death despite that being a requirement.
Epstein had also recently been taken off of suicide watch, while his cellmate was transferred in the days prior to his death.
While we wait for answers, Attorney General William Barr has stated that multiple investigations have been launched as the Department of Justice attempts to get to the bottom of how Epstein passed away.
