A bombshell new report indicates that disgraced socialite Ghislaine Maxwell tried to flee before being apprehended by the FBI.
With Maxwell potentially requesting bail due to coronavirus risk at her upcoming arraignment, this is highly relevant information.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Maxwell, 58, refused to open the door when law enforcement officers raided her home, prosecutors said in a court filing in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Monday. Prosecutors also said she had a cellphone wrapped in tin foil, which they claimed was a “seemingly misguided effort to evade detection” by law enforcement.
“Through a window, the agents saw the defendant ignore the direction to open the door and, instead, try to flee to another room in the house, quickly shutting a door behind her,” the filing said. “Agents were ultimately forced to breach the door in order to enter the house to arrest the defendant, who was found in an interior room in the house.”
