Jeffrey Epstein On Tape ‘Cagey’ About Source Of His Fortune, In Newly Discovered Interview From Private Island
In an interview conducted 16 years ago by a Wall Street Journal reporter, the now-deceased multimillionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein went into detail about his life and career — but remained “cagey” about where and how he accumulated his vast fortune, which totaled more than $ 500 million when he died on August 10, according to New York Magazine.
Recordings of the 2003 interview have been posted to the audio sharing site Megaphone.fm. The interview was conducted by now-former Wall Street Journal reported David Bank, who traveled to Little St. James, in the United States Virgin Islands — the private island owned by Epstein from 1998 until his death — to speak to Epstein. At that time, Epstein was 50 years old and still two years away from the first child sex abuse allegations he would face.
