PERV PALACE Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion where he abused underage girls DEMOLISHED after buyer spends $18million to wipe it off map

JEFFREY Epstein’s infamous Palm Beach mansion where he lured underage girls before abusing them is being torn down.

The waterfront property was bought by Florida real estate developer Todd Michael Glaser for $18 million, with the money now due to be dished out to Epstein’s victims.

Glaser has previously said he wanted to bulldoze the property – which includes a main house with six bedrooms, a staff house and pool – and a build a new mansion in its place.

Work has now begun on on tearing down the infamous palatial home, the Palm Beach Daily News reports.

Demolition crews used heavy equipment to pull down down the walls of the mansion.

A digger was pictured standing in the rubble of the once-grand property, which was built in 1952.

Florida attorney Brad Edwards, who represents about 50 women who say they were abused by Epstein welcomed the property’s destruction.

“I think that the symbolic power of destroying the house of horrors cannot be overstated,” he said.

“I can imagine there is going to be some amount of relief that the nightmare of what went on at the house has been buried to some degree.”

state agent Lawrence Moens, who represented Glaser and helped put the deal together, said: “I only got involved in the sale to ensure it would be wiped off the map.”

Glaser confirmed back in November the house was to be demolished, adding: “Palm beach is going to be very happy that it’s gone.”

Epstein’s lavish Palm Beach mansion is believed to be where much of the sexual abuse occurred as he and his alleged “Madam” – Ghislaine Maxwell – lured in vulnerable teens.

Authorities have said that at least 40 girls were brought to the property for what turned out to be sexual encounters.

Underage girls are alleged to have been attracted under the pretense of giving massages for cash – only to then be sexually abused by Epstein.

One of Epstein’s most high profile victims, Virginia Giuffre, claims she was taken to the mansion after being approached by Maxwell while working at Donald Trump’s club Mar-a-Lago.

The the sale of the Palm Beach house mansion came after Epstein’s 71st Street Manhattan townhouse also sold for around $50million.

Both of the sales has freed up cash for the Victims’ Compensation Program, which needs to be replenished by $10million.

The fund had to pause offering compensation to women who were sexually abused by Epstein after the state ran out of cash.

Victims have had to wait until funds were freed up as the mulitmillonaire paedo’s properties and other assets – such as his aircraft – are sold off.

In a statement, fund manager Jordana Feldman has said: “I am pleased to report that the Program can now resume full operations after this unfortunate and unexpected month-long delay.

“We have continued to process claims and hold meetings with claimants in anticipation of the resolution of the estate’s liquidity issue, and will begin issuing compensation offers immediately.”

More than 175 claims have been paid out worth some $67million to eligible claimants who were abused by Epstein as part of his twisted web of money, power and sexual abuse.

The deadline has passed for registered for the fund but anyone who hasn’t filed a claim yet has until March 25.

Epstein had a large property portfolio, which included homes throughout the world.

As well as the houses in Palm Beach and New York City, he had an apartment in Paris, a ranch in New Mexico, and a now-notorious private island located in the US Virgin Islands.

Epstein killed himself while awaiting trial for his sex crimes back in August 2019, but Maxwell remains in prison and his due to face the court in July.

Both are alleged to have hid in plain sight as they rubbed shoulders with the rich and powerful, hiding a horrific global network of sex abuse.

Maxwell’s lawyers have denied allegations against her, and accused Epstein’s victims of trying to turn her into a “scapegoat” following the death of paedophile.
