Jeffrey Epstein allegedly had a “fixer,” who also just so happened to be the head of an international modeling agency, has mysteriously disappeared “without a trace.” A new report from the Daily Mail claims Jean-Luc Brunel has vanished “like a ghost.”
Investigators have searched the U.S., Europe and Brazil in an effort to find Brunel, but have come up empty. “He is a ghost who has disappeared without a trace,” a source in Paris said of Brunel.
“There is no address for him, all his internet accounts, including social media, have been wiped out. He is uncontactable,” the source stated. Brunel disappeared after French prosecutors launched a separate investigation into Epstein’s alleged sex crimes.
Brunel is a 72-year-old Frenchman who founded the New York City-based modeling agency MC2, which had popular models including Christy Turlington and Angie Everhardt. There are reports that Brunel used the modeling agency to “recruit” young women and then provide them to Epstein’s sex trafficking system.
Three months before Epstein’s death by suicide, Brunel was allegedly scouting for girls just three months. Brunel has been linked to the late financier for many years and his name showed up in numerous court filings against Epstein. There was one account where Epstein invested $1 million into Brunel’s MC2 modeling agency in exchange for “supply of girls on tap” according to a lawsuit.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre alleged that Brunel “farmed out” aspiring models to Epstein and she claims that she was forced to have sex with Brunel according to court papers. Giuffre sued Epstein for allegedly raping her as a minor.
Former MC2 model Svetlana Pozhidaeva was photographed at Epstein’s $77-million Manhattan mansion in 2016.
Last week, a photo surfaced of Brunel cuddling with longtime Epstein accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell at Epstein’s private Caribbean Island “Little Saint James.”
Two weeks ago, there was a report that Brunel allegedly sent Epstein three 12-year-old triplet girls as a birthday present.
The modeling agency CEO claims he did nothing illegal. “I strongly deny having committed any illicit act or any wrongdoing in the course of my work as a scouter or model agency’s manager,” Brunel said in 2015.
Victoria’s Secret worked with MC2 even after accusations that the modeling agency was linked to supplying underage women to Epstein.
A new report has come out that Epstein recruiters used dance studios in New York City to recruit young women, especially ballet dancers according to lawsuits.
Last week, a judge formally ended the criminal case against Epstein. The disgraced billionaire financier had been under investigation for the crimes of sex trafficking minors and sex trafficking of minors in the early 2000s at his Manhattan mansion and his estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
Epstein allegedly committed suicide in a prison cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in lower Manhattan on August 10, 2019. Epstein reportedly killed himself by using bedsheets to hang himself from the prison bunk beds.
If you want to get into even more conspiracy theories, here’s a bizarre death. Joseph Recarey, the lead detective in the Epstein case, died last year at the age of 50. Recarey, who worked on the Palm Beach Police Department for more than 20 years, died “after a brief illness” on May 25, 2018.
