Jeffrey Epstein signed a testament a few days before his suicide. The millionaire suspected of abuse entrusted around 578 million dollars (more than 521 million euros) in assets to a so-called trust, according to documents held by the New York Post newspaper on Monday evening.
With this, Epstein may have made it more difficult for his alleged victims to receive compensation.
It is expected that a considerable number of legal cases will be brought by women who claim to have been abused by Epstein at a young age.
The wealthy Epstein's assets included money and real estate, such as his home in the New York district of Manhattan and private islands.
Just before his death, Epstein appointed two men as executors. These are Darren K. Indyke and Richard D. Kahn, who, according to the New York Post, worked with him for a long time.
