Jeffrey Epstein’s Island Visitors Exposed in Data Breach

Nearly 200 mobile devices were used by those who visited Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous “pedoph*le island” in the years leading up to his death left. The cell-phone signals left an undetectable trail of data going back to the visitors’ homes and businesses.

Maps of these visits were created by a controversial multinational data broker with military sector links, Wired reported. Those trails show the repeated excursions of affluent and prominent persons who seemed unconcerned with Epstein’s position as a convicted sex offender.

Near Intelligence, a location data broker embroiled in allegations of mismanagement and fraud, has gathered data that reveals with high precision the residences of many guests of Little Saint James, a property in the United States Virgin Islands where Epstein is accused of grooming, assaulting, and trafficking numerous women and girls.

Prosecutors said some of the girls were as young as fourteen. The former Attorney General of the United States Virgin Islands said that children as young as 12 were smuggled to Epstein by members of his high social circle.

Near Intelligence recorded devices visiting Little St. James from 80 cities spanning 26 US states and territories, with Florida, Massachusetts, Texas, Michigan, and New York leading the way, according to the report. The locations corresponded to estates in gated communities in Michigan and Florida, properties on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket in Massachusetts, a nightclub in Miami, and a walkway across from Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York City.

According to The Wall Street Journal, many ad exchanges have canceled agreements with Near, arguing that the company’s usage of their data breached the terms of service.

Officially, this data is meant for use by businesses looking to establish where prospective consumers work and live. However, in October 2023, the Journal found that Near had already delivered data to the US military via a complex network of hidden marketing organizations, middlemen, and conduits to defense contractors. According to bankruptcy filings acquired by Wired, Near Intelligence signed a year-long deal with nContext, a subsidiary of military contractor Sierra Nevada, in April 2023.

While many of the coordinates captured by Near point to multimillion-dollar homes in multiple US states, others point to lower-income areas where Epstein victims are known to have lived and attended school, such as West Palm Beach, Florida, where police and a private investigator say they have located approximately 40 of Epstein’s victims.

Florida, where police and a private investigator say they have located approximately 40 of Epstein’s victims.

“Most of the clients who come to me, their number one concern is privacy and safety,” says attorney Lisa Bloom, who represented 11 of Epstein’s alleged victims. “It’s deeply concerning to think that any sexual abuse victims’ location will be tracked and then stored and then sold to someone, who can presumably do whatever they want with it.”

A Department of Justice representative for the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, where Epstein was charged in 2019, refused to comment on whether its investigators ever conducted business with Near.

No one was charged for the Epstein sex trafficking operation, except for Jeffrey Epstein himself and his “madame” Ghislaine Maxwell. The FBI is in possession of Epstein’s video recordings, black book, and client list.

The Jeffrey Epstein files were partly made public in January.

Judge Loretta Preska presided over the announcement that documents would be unsealed on a rolling basis until completed.

The Epstein list included more than 150 names discovered in court documents, and revealed prominent figures associated with Epstein and convicted accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell. The records were sealed as part of a defamation case filed by one of their accusers, Virginia Giuffre.

In regards to Jane Doe #3, the newly released files exposed disturbing information about Prince Andrew and Jean Luc Brunel.

Former President Bill Clinton is possibly the most prominent name revealed in the records. He was formerly known as “Doe 36” and was mentioned in scores of redacted court documents. He did not object to the records mentioning him being unsealed, and the materials are not likely to raise any fresh allegations of misconduct against him. In one newly revealed document, an excerpt from Maxwell’s deposition, Maxwell claims she doesn’t know how many times Clinton traveled on Epstein’s private plane, but she’s “sure” he had a meal while on it.

Michael Jackson was listed as one of the Epstein associates. Jackson allegedly met one of the Jane Does at Epstein’s Palm Beach house. No illicit behavior is alleged in the testimony.

Tom Pritzker, a member of the prestigious environmental radical group the Aspen Institute and Executive Chairman of Hyatt Hotels, is accused of having slept with Virginia Giuffre. The accusation came up in an exchange with a witness.

The hunt to uncover the identities of these individuals and to publicly reveal them is now on.
