Ghislaine Maxwell’s family concerned for her safety amid Epstein associate’s jail cell death

Amid news of the death of Jean-Luc Brunel, modeling agent and former associate of disgraced billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, the family of convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell has come forth to express concerns about her safety while she awaits sentencing in her case, as Fox News reports.

As the New York Post reported over the weekend, Brunel, who was also facing charges of rape and sexual assault and was long suspected of luring young females into Epstein’s sphere, was found dead in his Paris prison cell, hanging by bedsheets.

The manner in which Brunel died appears eerily similar to that of Epstein himself, who was found dead of an apparent suicide in a New York City prison cell in 2019, also by hanging, and it has prompted claims of conspiracy and cover-up from those who believe both men may have been killed to protect the rich and powerful individuals whose secrets they kept.

According to French authorities, “no breach” of prison security had occurred near the time of Brunel’s demise, and they noted that a probe into his cause of death was now underway.

Ian Maxwell, a sibling of Ghislaine, spoke to the Post about the Brunel incident, saying, “It’s really shocking. Another death by hanging in a high-security prison. My reaction is one of total shock and bewilderment.”

Maxwell went on to reveal that he “fears for [Ghislaine’s] safety in her current surroundings at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, and noted that “despite the psychiatrist advising to the contrary, she was deemed a suicide risk and they are continuing to wake her up every 15 minutes in the night.”

In addition to the charges he was facing in France, Brunel had also attracted the attention of American prosecutors who claimed that the modeling mogul used the promise of lucrative contracts to attract young women to Epstein’s orbit.

According to the top executive at the Paris office of one of the largest modeling agencies in the world, Brunel “did all the things he’s been accused of. He ran around doing these things and just kept at it, because there was no accountability at the time,” adding, “[h]e was a serial rapist and never answered for it.”

As of now, sentencing for Maxwell is tentatively scheduled for June 28, and whether her brother’s fears that she will meet the same fate as Epstein and Brunel are realized – either in her current place of incarceration or at her next stop in the prison system – only time will tell.
