While the media frenzy surrounding billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s sudden death has died down, the mystery is only growing deeper.
It’s a complicated spiderweb of lies, bribes, and human trafficking that runs through rich and powerful circles around the globe.

Investigative reporters say they’ve found that Epstein had a secret group of psychiatrists, immigration lawyers, doctors, and even hairdressers that would recruit, drug, and prepare his underaged sex slaves.
“There were doctors and psychiatrists and gynecologist visits,” Virginia Giuffre, who was recruited by Epstein at age 16, told The Miami Herald. “There were dentists who whitened our teeth. There was a doctor who gave me Xanax.”
Another of Epstein’s victims, Sarah Ransome, says she was brought over from South Africa and given large amounts of Lithium by a psychiatrist to keep her numb and compliant.
“Not one person helped us,’’ she told The Herald. “Everyone around us had to know, because we looked so broken. But no one did anything.’’

Epstein had other doctors check the young girls for sexually transmitted diseases and prescribed them birth control.
“What doctor in their right mind, who is supposed to protect their patients, gives girls and young women Xanax?” Giuffre asked.
Bradley Edwards, a lawyer suing prosecutors in Florida for their mishandling of Epstein’s first case, said the secret group had a name and method for grooming and drugging the young sex slaves.
It was called the “Epstein Process,” Edwards said — a process of psychological manipulation to keep their sex slaves in line.

“He would find out they have no home, no car, that they need a place to live, and he would provide a place to live,” Edwards told The Herald.
“He can get you to the best doctors. Sometimes he would do that and sometimes he wouldn’t do that, but the promise was real because as soon as you walk into his house and see there are legitimate cooks, chefs, and assistants, everybody catering to him — it gives this air of legitimacy,” he said.
“I mean, everybody in this whole entire mansion can’t possibly be running an illegal sex trafficking operation, right?”
“Jeffrey was always surrounded by girls, always,” Ransome said of Epstein’s secret group. “How can you sit in front of a group of girls with Jeffrey and say ‘we just didn’t know it’? You had to know.”
Epstein reportedly committed suicide inside a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting trial for his numerous sex crimes.
A powerful and well-connected sexual predator, Epstein’s sudden death immediately spawned dozens of conspiracy theories.
“One of my first thoughts on hearing of Mr. Epstein’s suicide,” New York Times columnist James Stewart wrote after Epstein’s death, “was that many prominent men and at least a few women must be breathing sighs of relief that whatever Mr. Epstein knew, he has taken it with him.”
