Evidence from Jeffrey Epstein’s safe ‘went missing’ after FBI raid, court hears in Maxwell trial

Monday, a FBI special agent testified in court in the Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking trial that evidence went missing from Jeffrey Epstein’s home in New York after an FBI raid.

According to the Telegraph, Special Agent Kelly Maguire, who is a member of the FBI Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, discussed how CDs and other items were recovered from a locked safe during the raid and following searches on July 6th and 7th, 2019, after Epstein’s arrest.

The contents of the safe were revealed during the search when officers opened the safe. The safe contained jewelry, computer hard drives, diamonds, passports and large denominations of US currency, along with the CDs.

Investigators took pictures of the items, but were unable to take them into evidence until they received a warrant to remove them. When they returned four days later, the items were missing.

Agent Maquire called Epstein’s lawyer, Richard Kahn, to ask about the items. “Twenty to thirty minutes after the conversation, Richard Kahn came to the residence and brought them items back in two suitcases,” she said. The content on the CDs could not be confirmed, but the items were all there. 

Plenty of other boxes of CD’s and photographs and other items were found throughout the townhouse, including a picture of Epstein and Maxwell. Other reports have notes of inappropriate photographs of children in the safe at the property. According to Agent Maguire, it took 12 hours to completely search the house.
