One of Ghislaine Maxwell’s cellmates allegedly told three other inmates that she had been given money to kill Maxwell and planned to strangle her to death, according to her attorneys. The cellmate has since been moved to a different section of the prison.
That won’t help because there are plenty of other people willing to do the job for money, and the vast majority of them will keep the job to themselves. Others may take on the task for the goal of gaining “street cred.”
In a court filing, Maxwell’s lawyers claimed:
“One of the female inmates in Ms. Maxwell’s housing unit told at least three other inmates that she had been offered money to murder Ms. Maxwell and that she planned to strangle her in her sleep.”
“This incident reflects the brutal reality that there are numerous prison inmates who would not hesitate to kill Ms. Maxwell — whether for money, fame, or simple ‘street cred.’”
There has been no news on who offered the money, although it was most likely done with the help of at least two middlemen. There are certainly a few of Epstein’s acquaintances who would like Maxwell to buy the farm. She must have a long list of Lolita Express and Orgy Island clients. She may publish a memoir in the future, especially if she believes she will never be released from prison. That alone would be a compelling reason to want her dead.
As you know, Maxwell, a British socialite, was convicted in December for sex trafficking a 14-year-old girl during her time as a close associate of infamous billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. Her July 2020 arrest came years after investigations and litigation against Epstein, who allegedly operated an underage sex trafficking ring and raped dozens of underage girls.
Epstein was found dead in a Manhattan jail cell in August 2019 while awaiting trial for his sex crimes. His death was officially ruled a suicide.
In their sentencing brief, Maxwell’s lawyers argued she should receive a lighter sentence for her convictions based on the alleged death threat and multiple other grounds, including her “difficult, traumatic childhood.”
“Ghislaine Maxwell is not an heiress, villain, or vapid socialite. She has worked hard her entire life. She has energy, drive, commitment, a strong work ethic, and desire to do good in the world,” her lawyers wrote.
