The search for Jeffrey Epstein confidant Ghislaine Maxwell took federal agents to a rural estate in central New Hampshire. Federal agents found Maxwell at a 156-acre estate that she appears to have purchased in December for $1.1 million, according to the New York Post. Federal prosecutors said she appears to have purchased the property “through a carefully anonymized LLC.” Maxwell fled to a bedroom to hide when agents rang the doorbell at the gate, but eventually surrendered.

Prosecutors said Monday that the morning of July 2, FBI agents arrived at her remote, 156-acre property in New Hampshire, broke her blocked gate, and announced themselves at the door.
Through the window, prosecutors state, agents saw the 58-year-old socialite “ignore the direction to open the door” and instead try “to flee to another room in the house, quickly shutting the door behind her.” As a result, the agents had to forcibly enter her home, where they arrested her in an “interior room in the house.”
“Moreover, as the agents conducted a security sweep of the house, they also noticed a cell phone wrapped in tin foil on top of a desk, a seemingly misguided effort to evade detection, not by the press or public, which of course would have no ability to trace her phone or intercept her communications, but by law enforcement,” prosecutors wrote
I’m sure her new home won’t be as nice as her Manson she was hiding in.
