130 children have come out to claim they are children of deceased financier, Jeffrey Epstein in a bid to inherit part of the late paedophile’s $635 million estates.
If any are found to be the multimillionaire’s legitimate children, they could bite a piece from his $635 million estates, including his Manhattan mansion and a luxury 75-acre estate, dubbed ‘paedophile island’.
The 130 ‘would-be-children’ reached out to a website created by a DNA company to find any possible heirs to deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein’s estate. He was a convicted paedophile.
The DNA firm set up the website Epsteinheirs.com after Epstein’s death requesting for people who thought they were heirs to his estate to come forward. 386 people have contacted the website and up to 130 think, they could be his children.
Epstein, committed suicide in a Manhattan jail cell in August while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges.
He was never married and was not known to have had any children. He left his assets in a trust after his death.
“Jeffrey Epstein was sexually promiscuous for so long that there is a reasonable chance he may have fathered a child,” Harvey Morse, founder of Morse Genealogical Services tells the Sun.
Epstein’s estate was valued at $635 million early this year, an increase from about $577 million after the sale of some of its assets.
There are four other properties to his credit, including his Manhattan mansion and Zorro Ranch in Stanley, New Mexico, as well as the so-called ‘paedophile island’, or Little Saint James.
HIS STORY IN BRIEF by townandcountrymag.com:
Financier Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in July 2019 on charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking. He was denied bail ahead of his trail.
Epstein died while in jail, and his death was officially ruled a suicide by the New York City medical examiner, though a pathologist hired by Epstein’s brother claims his death may have been a homicide. Now, two prison guards are facing charges related to his death.
Epstein, a convicted sex offender who previously served 13 months in a Palm Beach county jail, had a high-profile social circle. His former associates include Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and Queen Elizabeth’s son Prince Andrew.
In November, Prince Andrew announced he was stepping back from his royal duties “for the foreseeable future” over his association with Epstein.
In early December, Epstein’s alleged victim Virginia Giuffre spoke out about both Epstein and Prince Andrew in a televised BBC interview.
