Epstein Used ‘Network of Recruiters’ for Underage Girls in NYC Dance Studios; His ‘Fixer’ Owned Modeling Agency and Has ‘Vanished’
Two damning articles have come out in the last 24-hours that give more insight into the vile world of Jeffrey Epstein.
The New York Times released information from court documents regarding Epstein’s recruiting young women in both Florida and New York City:
The financier recruited young dancers to give him massages even after his 2008 conviction for soliciting prostitution from a minor.
At the time, Mr. Epstein was exploiting dozens of girls he had plucked from high schools and shopping malls in Florida, luring them to his Palm Beach mansion and coercing them into giving him erotic massages through false promises, cash payments and threats.
In New York City, Epstein used dance studios as his hunting ground. While he was luring teenagers into sexual exploitation in Florida, he was using a network of recruiters within New York City’s dance studios to procure aspiring performers into a similar scheme.

Epstein’s recruiters in dance studios was described in the lawsuits filed last month in Federal District Court in Manhattan by two women who say they were sexually exploited.
The two women said Epstein took advantage of the insularity of the dance world, where dancers rely on one another for job opportunities and trust that those tips are legitimate.

Many of the girls said to have been used by Epstein were allegedly “sourced” in Paris, where the American owned an apartment worth 7 million Euros.
French prosecutors have opened their own investigation and preliminary inquiry into whether Epstein sexually abused French minors. Authorities say it is “urgent” Brunel is interviewed.
Authorities added “there is no address for him, all his internet accounts, including social media have been wiped out. He is uncontactable.”
