Private Caribbean islands owned by deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein up for sale

Private Caribbean islands owned by the deceased sex offender and financier Jeffrey Epstein are up for sale and could fetch up to $125m (£94.7m).

The BBC confirmed that the two islands – Little St James and Great St James – have been listed.

Some proceeds from the sale will be used to settle outstanding lawsuits.

The financier bought the 90-acre Little St James – the more developed of the two – nearly 25 years ago for almost $8m (£6m).

He then acquired the larger Great St James in 2016 for $22.5m and had drawn up plans to develop the 161-acre island by building homes, an amphitheatre, as well as an underwater office and pool.

Epstein was accused by US Virgin Islands attorney general Denise George of sexually abusing girls as young as 12 years old on Little St James.

Epstein died in jail in 2019, awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
