Ghislaine Maxwell says she believes Epstein was murdered

The 61-year-old was sentenced to 20 years in a US prison last year after being found guilty of helping to lure young girls to massage rooms so Epstein could molest them between 1994 and 2004.

In an interview for TalkTV’s Jeremy Kyle Live: Ghislaine Behind Bars, Maxwell also said she believes Epstein was murdered.

The photo is said to be taken inside Maxwell’s Mayfair home and shows Andrew with his arm around Giuffre.

Maxwell said: “Well, it’s a fake. I don’t believe it’s real. In fact I’m sure it’s not… There’s never been an original. Further, there’s no photograph; I’ve only even seen a photocopy of it.

“I don’t believe it happened, certainly the way as described. It would have been impossible. I don’t…
