The death of Jeffrey Epstein over the weekend has put renewed focus on the British socialite and heiress Ghislaine Maxwell , who has been accused in civil court documents of conspiring with the disgraced financier to recruit and groom underage girls for sexual abuse.

The death of Jeffrey Epstein at the weekend has refreshed the focus on the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who has been accused of recruiting and grooming underage girls for sexual abuse by the billionaire financier and others.

Epstein, 66, had been awaiting trial after being was charged with numerous sex trafficking offences when he was found dead at a high-security centre in Manhattan.

His alleged suicide came just hours after the release of thousands of documents relating to the case against him, included rafts of allegations against him and other powerful men, including Prince Andrew.

But 57-year-old Ghislaine Maxwell also features prominently in them. She spent nearly two decades at Epstein’s side and in the wake of his death, the British socialite is facing renewed scrutiny. There’s one small problem, though – nobody seems to know where she is.

Her family history

(Photo by Esaias BAITEL/Gamma-Rapho via Getty Images) Maxwell’s intriguing story starts long before she began to rub shoulders with Epstein. The youngest daughter of media mogul Robert Maxwell – whose empire once included the Mirror Group Newspapers and Macmillan publishers – Maxwell lived a life of privilege from the very beginning, growing up in a 53-room Buckinghamshire mansion before attending the University of Oxford.

The Maxwell’s family friends included aristocrats, prominent British politicians (thanks to Robert’s time as an MP) and – allegedly – Donald Trump. But in 1991, shortly after Maxwell had moved to New York, tragedy struck.

On November 5, 1981, her father mysteriously died after falling from his yacht, named the Lady Ghislaine, with his naked body being recovered from the ocean near the Canary Islands the day after he fell.

It took two post mortems to decide the cause of death was heart failure but the reason why Maxwell made his way to the back of the boat in the night, after radioing the crew from his cabin, remains unclear.

As the Independent previously reported, numerous shocking revelations came to light in the days after Maxwell’s death, as it was revealed that he was in millions of pounds of debt and had embezzled funds from his employees’ pension funds, leaving the Maxwell empire in tatters.

Association with Epstein

The date of their split is unclear but even more murky is the role Maxwell took on afterwards. The pair remained close friends (with Epstein describing her as “his best friend” in a 2003 Vanity Fair profile) but on top of this, Maxwell appeared to play a role in many other areas of Epstein’s life.

The New York Times cited an anonymous city official as saying the death was by hanging, despite the chief medical examiner Dr Barbara Sampson saying the cause of death was "pending further information". Epstein, a wealthy financier who was friends with people such as Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, was arrested on 6 July and pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14, from at least 2002 until 2005.

Maxwell has persistently denied these claims, and any involvement in Epstein’s crimes. This lawsuit was settled out of court but it has recently come back to haunt Maxwell.

On Friday – hours before Epstein’s death – unsealed court documents revealed new details about her alleged involvement in sex trafficking.

When Epstein was convicted of soliciting a minor for prostitution in 2008, Maxwell appeared to cut ties with him and the pair were never seen in public together again, but she remained on the social scene, attending everything from Chelsea Clinton’s wedding and to Oscars parties.

After the 2015 lawsuit, Maxwell began to step back from public life and has not been photographed at an event since 2016. That same year, her New York townhouse was sold.

Just days after Epstein’s arrest in July 2018, The TerraMar Project was shut down. Maxwell’s whereabouts remain publicly unknown.
