Epstein’s ‘Pedophile Island’ Visitors Revealed in Leaked Cellphone Data

Mapped coordinates show the routes people took to the location from July 2016 until the financier’s arrest in July 2019, according to Wired.

Nearly 200 people made multiple trips to disgraced financier Jeffry Epstein’s Caribbean island between 2016 and before his final arrest in 2019, according to data obtained by Wired.

The convicted sex offender trafficked and assaulted minors and women on to Little Saint James, where he would also invite influential and wealthy individuals, earning it the nickname ‘pedophile island’.

A document newly uncovered by Wired cites mobile data provided by Near Intelligence that pinpoints the locations of up to 166 potential visitors or victims, from across the US and the world.

Many of the coordinates mapped by Near Intelligence lead to multimillion-dollar homes in the US. Others trace to lower-income areas where Epstein’s victims are known to have lived and attended school, including parts of West Palm Beach, Florida.

Police and a private investigator say they have located around 40 of Epstein’s victims in the area, the outlet wrote, adding it is still unclear how that data was collected or what it was used for.

In January, newly-published legal documents listed some 100 people allegedly linked to Epstein, including former US President Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew. The latter reached an out of court settlement with a woman who accused him of sexual assault in 2022.

Epstein was eventually arrested in 2019 and charged with trafficking dozens of minors. He died awaiting trial in a Manhattan jail cell a month later, with his death officially ruled a suicide. Epstein’s girlfriend and reputed ‘madam’, Ghislaine Maxwell, was convicted and sentenced to 20 years behind bars for child sex trafficking in 2022. She is currently appealing the verdict.
