As if the case of Jeffrey Epstein couldn’t get more bizarre or twisted, one of his alleged victims, says that as a young “sex-slave,” she tried to escape from his clutches on his island of depravity by swimming through shark infested waters!
Sarah Ransome, a woman who claims she had been repeatedly raped by Epstein, told the British Daily, The Telegraph, that she was so determined to escape Little St. James, the multimillionaire’s private island nicknamed “Pedophile Island,” that she was willing to gamble her life in the shark-filled Caribbean waters.
“I had been raped three times that day,” she told the Telegraph. “A shark would have been my best friend at that point. I didn’t even think about it — it was just, get me away.”
Ransome recalled jumping on a quad bike to flee and planning to attempt to swim several miles to the neighboring island of St. Thomas.
But she was spotted on surveillance cameras that lined Epstein’s island and was quickly stopped by a team of his staff, she told the British tabloid.
Ransome went on to become one of the key witnesses who helped expose Epstein’s depravity before the 66-year-old killed himself last month in a Manhattan lockup while facing new sex-trafficking charges.
The South Africa-born woman had sued the pedophile over her accusations that he kept her as a sex slave -along with his alleged procurer, Ghislaine Maxwell, who denied the claims. Ransome eventually settled out of court with Epstein in 2018.
Daily Sexual Abuse
She told the Telegraph that she was “young and naïve” when she moved to New York in September 2006 at age 22.
“I had no idea of the hornet’s nest I had walked into,” she recalled, saying that she was “broken” and an “open book” when another woman approached her at a Manhattan nightclub and gushed about “this amazing guy” who “helped me achieve my dreams.”
“He was so charming, charismatic,” she said of first meeting Epstein, with the woman who first introduced them calling afterward to tell her to pack for a trip to his Caribbean island.
But Ransome quickly saw Epstein’s perverted side on his “Lolita Express” private jet, she said.
“They started having full-on, hardcore sex on the bed, one of the girls and Jeffrey,” she recalled. “There was no privacy. They did it in front of everyone. And from the time I got onto the island, that was when the abuse began.”
She said the attacks usually started with her being summoned to give Epstein a “massage.”
“There were some days I was raped three times a day. And then he would rape others,” she said, adding that she had to be readily available for Epstein and his friends, whom he “lent us out to.”
She went on in horrifying detail, “In six months I never saw him do a day’s work. I never saw him work. He was literally sexually abusing us all day long,” she insisted.
“The day Epstein was arrested was without question the best day of my life, without question,” she told the Telegraph.
She now wants to see others prosecuted, too.
