Jeffrey Epstein shipped £40k of cement to ‘Paedophile Island’ just weeks before expose that led to his arrest was published
JEFFREY Epstein shipped £40,000-worth of cement to his private island just weeks before an expose that led to his arrest was published, it was revealed last night.
The sex beast financier forked out extra cash for speedy delivery of a giant mixing lorry to arrive on Little St James – his luxury hideaway dubbed “Paedophile Island”.

And he even took responsibility for any damage to the truck in transit by paying upfront so that it would arrive even sooner, DailyMail.com reported.
The Carmix 5.5 XL mixer arrived at the Epstein’s lair on November 7 last year – just three weeks before the Miami Herald published a series of explosive articles into his lurid perversions.
Those reports eventually led authorities in New York to arrest and charge the disgraced Wall Street tycoon with sex trafficking – including alleged victims as 14.
But the convicted paedo, 66, evaded justice by apparently hanging himself in his Manhattan jail cell – hours after the unsealing of a tranche of 2,000 court documents that exposed more sickening allegations against him.
Considering both the scope of Brown’s article and the urgency of the shipment, the possibility that the cement mixer was used to literally cover up evidence cannot be discounted
The billionaire often carried out construction work on his private retreat in the US Virgin Islands – meaning the cement could have been used for innocent purposes.
But it will raise concerns that the well-connected money mogul may have been attempting to entomb any damning artefacts after catching wind of the newspaper investigation into him.
Shipping experts last night said the possibility that the cement was “used to literally cover up evidence cannot be discounted”.
William George, an analyst with shipping data firm Import Genius, said: “While the purchase of the cement mixer on its own is not suspicious, particularly given the reported and approved repair of cisterns on Little St. James, both the timing of the shipment and the fact that it’s the item in our records shipped with an express bill of lading do raise concerns.
“The shipment arrived Epstein’s island on November 7, 2018, 21 days before Julie Brown’s expose was published in the Miami Herald and 23 days before Epstein allegedly began to try to pay off witnesses.
“Considering both the scope of Brown’s article and the urgency of the shipment, the possibility that the cement mixer was used to literally cover up evidence cannot be discounted.”

In 2008, Epstein had a huge industrial shredder sent to the island shortly after he was convicted of soliciting child prostitution.
The 53lbs machine was capable of destroying CDs, entire ring binders and hardback documents – and could swallow up to 85 sheets of paper at a time.
Epstein would only go on to serve 13 months in prison after striking a controversial plea deal with Florida prosecutors allowing him to avoid more serious federal charges.
FBI agents this week raided the remote Little St James retreat – also dubbed “orgy island” – as the probe into his sex trafficking case continues following his suicide.
Investigators arrived on speedboats and scoured the grounds on golf carts amid claims under-age girls were used as sex slaves were abused inside a bizarre temple there.
