Names of individuals allegedly tied to deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein will be released through unsealed court documents in the coming months, according to a new report.
Previously sealed documents with information on alleged Epstein associates, perpetrators, victims, employees, and others will be made public, according to The Daily Mail, which first reported on the new court filings pertaining to Virginia Giuffre’s 2015 lawsuit against former Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell.
A total of 167 names could be made public when the documents are unsealed, according to a list of “non-objecting Does” filed this week. The Mail reported that Prince Andrew, who has been accused of sexual assault by Giuffre, is expected to be included in the documents.
Several of the currently unidentified individuals from the list have reportedly already been identified through media interviews or previously publicly available documents, including a former employee and an alleged associate.
Other names reportedly to be included in the documents are employees of Maxwell, alleged victims, and law enforcement officials linked to the case. For example, John Doe 18, an assistant state district attorney, already appears in an available police report, according to the filing.
John Doe 23, an alleged perpetrator, was accused of playing a role in Epstein’s sex-trafficking scheme and has since died after the original case. His connection to the case has already been reported in the media, according to the filing.
Also dead is John Doe 24, allegedly an associate of Alan Dershowitz, who was sued by Giuffre before she dropped the case against him. Other names that will reportedly be unsealed are that of a journalist “who investigated Epstein,” a former U.S. assistant attorney, and a “former FBI director.”
The new documents, expected to shed light on individuals who have been linked to Epstein, come as information continues to trickle out as media organizations and others ask for full access to documents pertaining to Giuffre’s 2015 case against Maxwell.
In previously released documents from the case, an alleged victim of Epstein said in unsealed emails that she had copies of blackmail videos that the deceased financier took of his associates.
“When my friend had sexual intercourse with [redacted] and [redacted], sex tapes were in fact filmed on each occasion by Jeffrey,” Sarah Ransome claimed in an email. “Thank God she managed to get ahold of some footage of the filmed sex tapes which clearly identify the faces of [redacted] and [redacted] having sexual intercourse with her. Frustratingly enough Epstein was not seen in any of the footage but he was clever like that.”
