Jeffrey Epstein’s will was filed in the U.S. Virgin Islands and it shows that he signed it on Aug. 8 — two days before investigators said he hanged himself in his New York City jail cell.
The sex-trafficker and convicted pedophile was worth $577,672,654, or about $18 million more than he previously stated in court papers when he had tried to land bail on federal sex-trafficking charges, The New York Post reported, citing brand new court documents.
The 66-year-old put all of his holdings in a trust, referred to as “The 1953 Trust” in court papers, named after the year he was born, the document revealed.
The 21-page filing included a copy of Epstein’s death certificate from Aug. 15, five days after his suicide, which noted: “Immediate Cause: Pending Further Study.”
The 66-year-old’s will was filed with court officials in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned two islands, Little St. James and Great St. James.
Epstein’s Little Saint James Island in St. Thomas, took on a string of nicknames over the years, including “Pedophile Island” and “Orgy Island.”
There were no details on the trust’s beneficiaries. The court papers noted Epstein’s only potential heir was his brother, Mark Epstein. The will said his brother had a claim to Epstein’s extensive holdings only if the financier did not leave behind the document.
It has since been ruled by the New York City medical examiner’s office that Epstein hanged himself in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. The report was released Friday.
