Yes, but did he just hang himself? How does the bbc know? Are they not at least a suspicious given the circumstances, lack of cameras and all the rest ... it's not just some wild conspiracy theory.
To be fair, amongst all this dodgy shit, this is alleged, and could well be attention and money (talk show) grabbing.
Not for the BBC tho, believe everything!
The BBC love to demonise heterosexual men.
17 is legal in a lot of places the UK being one of them. Epstein was running the whole racket and got murdered for his troubles which seems like good karma.
There is one thing that is bothering me. How could a 15 year old hop on a plane to a strange man's estate? Where are the parents? She was on a school trip to New York, so she was not a homeless waif. There must have been some structure in her life.
She used the term "brutal" for the sexual assault so it was outright rape. Why no reporting to the authorities? Why didn't the parent(s). Was there money transfered?
We would like to turn this is into a Victorian morality play where the dastardly Epstein abducts naive young innocents out of the loving arms of parents.
However, this is much darker story, where young women and/or their parents knew what was being sold or suspected, but the money was just too tempting.
It's just another tawdry take of the human condition.
