FBI agents have, according to several media, conducted a raid Monday on a small Caribbean American island owned by financier Jeffrey Epstein, found dead in his cell Saturday after being charged with multiple attacks on minors.
"The island of pedophilia"
Two anonymous law enforcement officials, quoted by NBC, have confirmed that the US federal police have launched a search of Jeffrey Epstein's residence on the island of Little St. James in the Virgin Islands, which the Rich businessman would have acquired in the 1990s.
Some American media have dubbed it "the island of pedophilia", because of the minor girls that Jeffrey Epstein would have brought. The Daily Mail tabloid had published similar news on the raid earlier, with photos and videos appearing to show FBI uniformed agents deployed on the island.
The investigation will continue
The raid comes as the US Attorney General and the Manhattan federal prosecutor promised, despite his disappearance, to continue investigating Jeffrey Epstein's multiple sexual assaults and to track down his possible accomplices.
Jeffrey Epstein, 66, was found dead around 6:30 am on Saturday in his cell in the Manhattan federal prison, apparently a suicide. He was awaiting trial after being charged in early July and risking up to 45 years in prison.
