Jefferey Epstein signed a new will just before he ‘committed suicide’: Nothing to see here – move along…
Just two days before he allegedly committed suicide, convicted sex offender and pal of Bill Clinton, Jefferey Epstein signed a brand new will. Isn’t that special? Epstein’s will was filed in the US Virgin Islands, and it shows that he signed it Aug. 8 — two days before he hanged himself in his Manhattan jail cell, according to court papers exclusively obtained by The NY Post.
The multimillionaire convicted pedophile was worth $577,672,654, or about $18 million more than he previously stated in court papers when futilely trying to land bail on federal sex-trafficking charges, the new documents show.
Half a billion dollars sitting in a jail cell with no cameras? Nothing to see here folks, just move along, we got this one…
If only there’d been some sign, some clue, that Epstein was suicidal https://t.co/37Q57X6zDc

Epstein put all of his holdings in a trust that he called The 1953 Trust, presumably after the year of his birth. That trust could very quickly become depleted, as lawyers in Florida and New York have already filed court documents seeking a share of Epstein’s estate for clients who were victims of the serial pedophile.
Bradley Edwards, who has two clients seeking damages from Epstein, filed a Caveat or Notice of Trust for two of his clients in Palm Beach last week.
Epstein breaks down his personal property into 12 categories:
- CASH: $56,547,773
- FIXED INCOME INVESTMENTS: $14,304,679
- EQUITIES: $112,679,138
- AVIATION ASSETS, AUTOMOBILES, BOATS: $18,551,700
- HEDGE FUNDS, PRIVATE EQUITY INVESTMENTS: $194,986,301
- NYC MANSION (9 EAST 71ST STREET): $55,931,000
- NEW MEXICO PROPERTY (ZORRO RANCH): $17,246,208
- PARIS APARTMENT (AVENUE FOCH): $8,672,823
- PALM BEACH MANSION (EL BRILLO DRIVE): $12,380,209
- GREAT SAINT JAMES (US VIRGIN ISLANDS): $22,498,600
- LITTLE SAINT JAMES & RED HOOK HARBOR: $63,874,223
- FINE ARTS, ANTIQUES, OTHER PROPERTY: TBD
That adds up to $577,672,654 in personal property. The New York Post was the first to obtain a copy of the will.
This number will likely surpass $600 million once Epstein’s other assets are figured in to the equation.
A few of those assets were noted in a court filing submitted by prosecutors for the Southern District of New York last month.
‘After conferring with law enforcement agents who have reviewed the materials from the safe, the Government has learned that the safe contained more than $70,000 in cash,’ read a filing by prosecutors arguing against granting Epstein bail.
‘In addition, the safe contained 48 loose diamond stones, ranging in size from approximately 1 carat to 2.38 carats, as well as a large diamond ring.’
It then noted: ‘The Government is currently unaware of whether the defendant maintains similar stashes of cash and/or jewels at his multiple properties, or in other locations. Such ready cash and loose diamonds are consistent with the capability to leave the jurisdiction at a moment’s notice.’
That would also include his painting of former president and friend Bill Clinton in drag, the mural of himself in prison and a mold of female breasts he reportedly had mounted by his bathtub.
It was also announced on Monday that the case against Epstein had been dropped, with prosecutors submitting a letter to the court asking that Judge Richard Berman grant their request for a nolle prosequi.
Prior to Epstein’s death, he was sued by dozens women who accused him of sexual abuse. The New York Times reported that one of Epstein’s accusers sued his estate last week. More are sure to follow, leaving the estate in limbo until all creditors are paid — including any victims who may be awarded damages by a court.
