The New York Post is reporting that Jeffrey Epstein signed his will two days before he died.
The details show that Epstein was worth over $577 million.
Court papers exclusively obtained by The New York Post show that Epstein put all of his holdings into a trust. The trust is called “1953 Trust,” which is the year he was born.
The will didn’t mention any beneficiaries and the only heir could be Epstein’s brother but only if the will didn’t exist.
Mark Epstein is Jeffrey Epstein’s younger brother. According to the Daily Beast, he’s also under scrutiny for having intertwined business dealings with his brother:
A former artist turned real estate magnate, Mark raised eyebrows last month by offering up his Florida condo as collateral for his brother’s bail. While he has denied any connection to Jeffrey’s businesses, at least one of Mark’s properties has turned up repeatedly in sex trafficking suits against his older sibling. And his unexplained wealth—he claims to have semi-retired at age 39 and has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charity—may come under further scrutiny as the federal conspiracy investigation into his brother’s trafficking ring continues.
The Wall Street Journal also reports that Mark Epstein’s (pictured below) wealth is a mystery.
The only assets that weren’t included in the will were the extensive art collection and antiques Epstein had in his homes.
The New York Post reports the 66-year-old bachelor’s will was filed with court officials in St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned two islands worth a total of more than $86 million.
One of the secluded Caribbean isles, Little St. James Island, was dubbed “Pedophile Island” by locals who said they witnessed a parade of what looked like barely legal girls
