Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime companion Ghislaine Maxwell was busted Thursday in the tiny town of Bradford, New Hampshire — where she had recently purchased a “gorgeous” home, according to authorities.
The 58-year-old former British socialite — who was charged with conspiring with the disgraced financier to sexually abuse minors — purchased a home in the bucolic village six months ago, according to law enforcement sources
“She slithered away to a gorgeous property in New Hampshire, continuing to live a life of privilege while her victims continue to live with the trauma inflicted on them years earlier,” FBI Special Agent William Sweeney said at a press conference Thursday.
Investigators had been “keeping tabs” on Maxwell, including at her new secret country home, “for some time,” Sweeney said.
Maxwell bought the house in the woods of Bradford, which is home to only 1,600 people, in December and had been moving from place to place around the US, according to law enforcement sources.
A detention memo said she had “no other known connections” to the 36-square-mile town, which is about 30 miles outside Concord, the state capital.
The official website of the small town features images of a leafy gravel road and kids playing ice hockey on a frozen lake — a far cry from Maxwell’s tony life with Epstein on the Upper East Side, where she allegedly groomed young girls for sex.
