The Jeffrey Epstein’s case keeps getting weirder and weirder. His death is being investigated by the FBI amid rumors of camera malfunctions.
On top of that, we can now add that one of Epstein’s friends, the one who allegedly scouted young girls under the guise of being a model scout has disapeared.
French police are looking for Jean-Luc Brunel, 72, and he has simply ghosted them and others who are trying to find him.
The New York Post reported that “he is a ghost who disappeared without a trace,” a legal source in Paris told the paper of Brunel, who discovered some of the biggest names in modeling, including Christy Turlington and Angie Everhardt.
Investigators have made inquiries throughout the U.S., Europe, and Brazil, where the Frenchman was seen looking for females three months before Epstein was arrested, the paper claims.
“There is no address for him, all his internet accounts, including social media, have been wiped out. He is uncontactable,” the source told the Mirror.
Brunel has long been connected to Jeffrey Epstein’s scandal in numerous court filings.
Epstein had invested $1 million to help launch Brunel’s Miami-based modeling firm MC2 in return for a “supply of girls on tap,” according to one lawsuit — even allegedly sending him three 12-year-old girls as a sick birthday present.
One of Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, alleged in court papers that Brunel “farmed out” modeling hopefuls to Epstein and that she was forced to have sex with the model agency boss.
Brunel previously denied any involvement “directly or indirectly” in crimes involving Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself in a Manhattan federal prison on Aug. 10.
