Jeffrey Epstein ‘secretly bought $500,000 bungalow in Queens just before his 2006 arrest for underage sex abuse’ – The Sun

JEFFREY Epstein secretly bought a two-bedroom bungalow in Long Island around the time of his 2006 arrest.

Epstein finalized the purchase of the home, located on the border of Queens in the town of Valley Stream, just days after police signed a probable cause affidavit charging him and two of his assistants with multiple counts of unlawful sex acts with a minor.

Court records obtained by The Sun show that the property was registered under Lyn and Jojo LLC.

This suggests that the home may not have been for Epstein himself, but rather two of his longtime employees who were also husband and wife.

The 1,576-square-foot property, built in 1927, features two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a detached garage that sits on a 4,400-square-foot lot.

It was purchased in a deal spearheaded by Epstein's longtime lawyer Darren Indyke, who crossed out his name on the property's deed and wrote in the LLC when he signed the purchasing document.

Lyn and Jojo then lived in the home from 2006 through 2011 according to records, at which time Epstein would have completed both the incarceration and probation periods of his plea deal following his Palm Beach arrest and returned to New York City.

It is unclear why Epstein bought the property for the two, but neither Lyn or Jojo ever had any ownership in the home.

Epstein also owned the couple's New York City residence in his brother Mark's apartment building in East 66th Street.

Lyn and Jojo are the same couple who made waves when it was revealed they had posted photos with a number of Epstein's famous friends.

Prince Andrew, his ex-wife Sarah 'Fergie' Ferguson, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Chris Tucker were just a few of the famous faces that they snapped pictures with over the years.

The pair moved out of the property in 2011 according to public records, which is also when Jojo ended his employment with Epstein in New York.

It appears that two other Epstein employees then moved into the property, which was purchased just before the housing bubble burst.

Epstein's name is not on any of the papers, and it is instead Indyke who signed all the documents and set up the LLC for the company.

Indyke also writes in the documents that his office is located in the Palace Hotel in New York City.

It is by far the smallest of Epstein's properties, and one he never had to publicly claim as his own since Indyke did not list the name of his client.

The inclusion of the property in a recent filing from the Virgin Islands attorney general means that it couldbe up for grabs once the estate starts paying out Epstein's alleged victims.

Epstein's estate is being sued by close to 30 women as well as the Virgin Islands, with the latter hoping to seize or force the sale of his two island properties and other holdings in the US territory.

In the wake of filing that initial complaint, the Deputy Attorney General for the territory, Carol Thomas Jacobs, filed court papers arguing that the only way to guarantee the estate maintain the cash damages the government is seeking would be to allow her to intervene.

AG Jacobs argued that the will is filed in her jurisdiction, as well as the fact that the US Virgin Islands is the site of many of Epstein's alleged abuses of minors, in court filings obtained by The Sun.

At the same time, AG Jacobs made it very clear in her filing that she also wants to make certain those minor victims got their settlements paid out by the estate.

"Under the framework of the Fund there is no obligation that the Program Administrator be subject to legal constraints imposed by the Probate Court or the supervision or approval of this court, and provides no assurances that the Government's substantial and legally protectable interest in the distribution of the Estate's assets will be protected,' reads the Motion to Intervene.

"Moreover, there is no ceiling or floor for funds to be paid to the victims, imperilling both the Government's ability to ensure that its own claims are satisfied, and to ensure that victims receive the compensation to which they are entitled."

Later in the Motion, AG Jacobs stressed to the judge that the "Government does not seek to supplant funds that victims might receive through the Epstein Fund or otherwise, but is entitled to ensure its own legally enforceable interests in the Estate are protected."

She also demanded that the estate set aside funds for victims who may be too afraid to come forward or are still dealing with trauma.

This was in response to the filing by the estate's executors that sought to require any victims seeking compensation to file their claims by last Fridasy, after which the estate would not be responsible for paying out any lawsuits.

What;s more, the estate wants this all to play out not in a court of law but rather arbitration.

"This is improper, impermissible and deceptive,' stated AG Jacobs in a filing attached to her motion which argued this would 'revictimize' the women.

She hopes that this argument will ring true to Judge Carolyn Herman Purcell, who will rule on the AG's request to intervene in the trust while also determining if the estate's request to have secret settlements is legal.

AG Jacobs could ultimately have control over the distribution of funds alongside Epstein's previously selected executors, lawyer Darren Indyke and Richard Kahn.

Epstein signed a Last Will and Testament just two days before taking his own life.

In the document, which was filed in the Virgin Islands, Epstein put his net worth at over $577 million,.

That amount is almost $20 million more than he told a federal judge he was worth in a court filing back in July.

He listed his brother Mark as his lone heir, while Indyke and Kahan were designated executors alongside Boris Nikolic.

Nikolic would later recuse himself from that position.

Epstein put all of his holdings in a trust that he called The 1953 Trust, presumably after the year of his birth.

He broke down his personal property into 12 categories.


The pedophile put all his assets and funds into a trust created just two days before he took his own life.

  • CASH: $56,547,773
  • EQUITIES: $112,679,138
  • NYC MANSION (9 EAST 71ST STREET): $55,931,000

The value of the estate will likely surpass $600 million once Epstein's other assets are figured in to the equation.
