Federal agents found a massive stash of nude pictures of “what appear to be underage girls” in convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s New York mansion.
“Contemporaneous with the arrest of Epstein at Teterboro airport, agents executed a search warrant on his mansion in New York City and recovered and seized—and that was a search pursuant to a valid warrant,” United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) Geoffrey Bergman said Monday at a news conference, according to the Daily Beast.
“Agents seized evidence, including nude photographs of what appear to be underage girls.” They captured the evidence as Epstein faces charges for sex trafficking in a case that could implicate many prominent members of the political, financial and entertainment world. Epstein had friendships with people ranging from former President Bill Clinton to Hollywood icon Woody Allen.

CNN reporter Erica Orden shared the memo on Twitter, which indicates the evidence involves “at least hundreds — perhaps thousands” of nude and partially nude images.

Epstein was allegedly extremely exacting in his reported collection of nudes, saving not only hard copies but images on compact discs that were labeled according to the name of the subject, according to a Department of Justice memo that insists the billionaire not be released on bail, pending trial.
“The defendant, a registered sex offender, is not reformed… he is not repentant, rather, he is a continuing danger to the community and an individual who faces devastating evidence supporting deeply serious charges,” the memo reads.

Police arrested Epstein in New York on Saturday. He is accused of the sex trafficking of dozens of underage girls at his New York and Florida homes between 2002 and 2005. Epstein has already served time as a result of a plea bargain after he was charged with sexually assaulting more than 100 minors. He spent 13 months in prison.
