Officials Say “There’s a Story to be Told” at Epstein’s New Mexico Ranch
Jeffrey Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, called Zorro Ranch, is on a 10,000-acre property, partially on land leased from the office of New Mexico Public Lands Commissioner, Stephanie Garcia Richard. “To say that it was heart wrenching and sickening to see this man’s signature on state land office documents is an understatement” Garcia Richard said to CBS News.
Commissioner Stephanie Garcia Richard revealed to CBS that her office is fully cooperating with investigators and have “Turned over 400 pages of Epstein’s property records to investigators- documents that may contain names of his alleged co-conspirators.”
Investigators are beginning interviews with women who are coming forward as victims of Epstein’s sexual abuse. Garcia Richard hopes more victims will be compelled to come forward and she is disgusted at what abuses may have happened on the property. Epstein is alleged to have sexually abused young girls at the ranch, and Garcia Richard said “they name folks that were ranch managers, and so you just kind of wonder who knew what when at the time that these activities were taking place.”
Property records show that the frightful sex abuse ranch included “a pool, firehouse, offices, a log cabin and guest house among other amenities” and also featured “an airstrip, an antique railroad car and train tracks.” It’s chilling to think what could have occurred in such a remote and secure location. Commissioner Stephanie Garcia Richard wondered if the reason Epstein was drawn to New Mexico could be a “perception that people won’t ask questions…this case can really show the world that you can’t get away with things in New Mexico.”
