The former friend of Donald Trump and Bill Clinton is said to have sexually abused dozens of young girls on the waterfront property.
Jeffrey Epstein's infamous Palm Beach Pad, where he is said to have sexually abused dozens of young girls, is set to be demolished soon. The developer of the property, Todd Michael Glaser revealed that he has signed a contract with Epstein’s estate to purchase the land, according to TMZ. "Palm Beach is going to be very happy that it’s gone," Glaser told The Wall Street Journal about the notorious mansion in Florida. The waterfront property was listed at $21.995 million in July after Epstein bought it for $2.5 million in 1990. Glaser reportedly bought it for just $18 million and once the deal is complete, he plans on obliterating the house and building a new 14,000-square-foot mansion.

Authorities previously said that at least 40 girls were brought to the mansion, which has a main house with six bedrooms, a three-bedroom staff house, and a pool house, and subjected to molestation by the millionaire financer and his associates, reports The Sun. Glaser also shared that the deal is set to close in December after which he plans to demolish the mansion and build an entirely new home. Back in July, the property was vandalized with a message painted across a white fence in red, right in front of the house.
Or...OR...we gut it. Put bars on the windows & turn it into a prison for anyone found guilty of child sex crimes. And DAILY a greasy old man comes to visit & lays on a table exposing his privates and they have to pretend to enjoy it or they get water boarded... idk or something— 🖤CrHISSStal Sanderson 🧡🖤🧡 (@CHenryWrites) July 24, 2020
"GONE BUT NOT FORGIVEN," read the message painted in a blood-like manner. This was just the second time someone painted graffiti on the gates of Epstein's Palm Beach home and the first appeared shortly before he died in a New York City federal jail in August 2019. Accused sex trafficker, Epstein, was awaiting trial on federal charges of sexually abusing underage girls when he was reportedly found unresponsive in his cell at New York's Metropolitan Correctional Center, a federal detention facility. The businessman, who was well known for his high-profile connections in both the business and political worlds, was charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of a minor and was to face a maximum sentence of 45 years in prison.

He was pronounced dead after being rushed to a hospital. The bureau's release called it "an apparent suicide" at the time and law enforcement officials believed that Epstein hanged himself. Following this death, several alleged victims of Epstein called for justice and answers. "The many victims of Jeffrey Epstein and his accomplices should not lose hope," said Roberta “Robbie” Kaplan, who represents a victim in the Epstein case, told People in a statement following the 66-year-old’s death. "We will continue to fight tirelessly on their behalf not only to seek justice but also to ensure that all of the facts of his monstrous crimes become known to the world," Kaplan said.
In August, Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his jail cell by suicide. But how he managed that in prison is a mystery. His shock death has raised suspicions he was a man who knew too much. #60Mins pic.twitter.com/th6jbL9jfE— 60 Minutes Australia (@60Mins) November 10, 2019
"Justice Brandeis was 100% right when he said that sunlight is the best disinfectant. We need to expose the whole truth here so that crimes of this scale and scope never happen to any children ever again," continued Kaplan. Jennifer Araoz, who was raped by Epstein when she was 15, told CNBC that she was "angry Jeffrey Epstein will not have to face the survivors of his abuse in court," adding, "Epstein is gone, but justice must still be served. I hope the authorities will pursue and prosecute his accomplices and enablers and ensure redress for his victims." David Boies, legal counsel to alleged victims Virginia Giuffre and Sara Ransome told People in a statement, "This is the end of one chapter, but only one chapter, of the battle to bring the sex traffickers to justice. Jeffrey Epstein did not act, and could not have done what he did, alone. Justice demands that those who acted with him also be held to account."
