Ghislaine Maxwell believes sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was MURDERED rather than took this own life, her brother claims

GHISLAINE Maxwell believes that her former lover and paedo Jeffrey Epstein was murdered, her brother has claimed.

Speaking on the Spectator's Americano podcast, Ian Maxwell said his sister is the only one in his family that believes disgraced financier Epstein did not take his own life.

Epstein was found hanged in his New York jail cell while awaiting trial for child sex chargesin 2019.

Because of his high-profile connections to Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton, many conspiracy theorists believe that Epstein did not kill himself.

On FridayGhislaine's older brother Ian was asked about Epstein's suicide.

“I don't buy a lot of the conspiracy theories at all. It so happens one of the conspiracy theories about my father is that he was murdered rather than committed suicide or died by accident," Mr Maxwell said.

"And I would venture to believe that she may also think that Epstein was murdered… I do happen to think my sister does think that he was killed," he said.

British tycoon Robert Maxwell died in unusual circumstances on November 5, 1991.
