Ghislaine Maxwell posed as a journalist named Janet Marshall to secretly buy the sprawling New Hampshire hideaway the place she was arrested, in line with prosecutors.
Extra particulars of Maxwell’s alleged efforts to hide her whereabouts have been divulged Tuesday throughout the British socialite’s arraignment and bail listening to on sex-trafficking expenses.
A New Hampshire actual property agent spoke with an FBI agent Tuesday morning and recalled the acquisition of the 156-acre property in Bradford, prosecutors mentioned.
“The actual property agent instructed the FBI agent the consumers for the home launched themselves as Scott and Janet Marshall. Each had British accents,” mentioned Assistant US Lawyer Alison Moe in regards to the December transaction. “Scott Marshall instructed her he was retired from the British army and was at the moment engaged on a e book. Janet Marshall described herself as a journalist.
“They instructed the agent they wished to buy the property rapidly by a wire they usually have been establishing an LLC,” Moe continued.
Prosecutors say Maxwell, 58, purchased the house at 338 East Washington Street by a “fastidiously anonymized LLC” — with information indicating the sale was for $1.07 million.
The actual property agent quickly realized Janet Marshall’s true identification, after seeing an image of Maxwell.
In asking that Maxwell be remanded pending trial, prosecutors mentioned her alias reveals that she’s prepared to lie to be able to keep away from being held accountable for her crimes.
She’s charged in a six-count indictment with procuring women and younger girls for Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse within the early 1990s — and collaborating in a few of the abuse herself.
