“Jeffrey Epstein viscously raped a 26-year-old Florida real estate broker — and then threatened to feed her to alligators if she reported the assault, a chilling new lawsuit claims.
In a federal complaint filed last week, the woman, identified as Jane Doe, alleged that Epstein first sexually abused her at his Palm Beach mansion in 2008 with the “assistance” of his accused madam Ghislaine Maxwell.
Afterward, Epstein and Maxwell allegedly drove the woman to pick up her 8-year-old son and stopped the car “at a large body of water that was infested with alligators.”
“Epstein then ushered the Plaintiff to the body of water and told her in explicit detail that, as had happened to other girls in the past, she would end up in this body of water and be devoured by the alligators, should she ever reveal what Epstein had done to her,” the filing states.” . . . (more)

“A US federal appeals court rejected an attempt by Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged madam, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, to block the release of a massive deposition she gave for a 2016 civil suit filed by one of Epstein’s accusers.”

Everyone who was a part of the Epstein sex ring should be concerned.”
