Police footage of Jeffrey Epstein's Palm Beach mansion may offer some clues into the convicted sex offender's lifestyle.
Florida police opened up an investigation into Epstein based on a tip from a victim in 2005. Two years later, the financier worked out a deal with federal prosecutors, which held that he would register as a sex offender and serve 13 months in jail. This summer, Epstein was arrested on charges of sex trafficking of minors. He died by suicide on August 10.
Business Insider previously reported that the 2005 footage appears to show a picture of Epstein and his longtime associate Ghislaine Maxwell posing in the White House, though the authenticity of the photo can't be confirmed.
The video also shows at least two massage tables in the residence. Epstein was accused of receiving sexual massages from underaged girls. The walls of the nine-bedroom abode appear to be decorated with explicit photos of young women and girls. According to the Daily Mail, police blurred out one graphic image of a girl around the age of six.
Also hanging on the wall was a picture of a baby and a skull, bearing quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson and "Star Trek."
This isn't the only one of Epstein's properties to come under scrutiny. Locals called his private island in the US Virgin Islands "Orgy Island." The convicted sex offender's Manhattan mansion contained a painting that depicted former President Bill Clinton - a former associate of Epstein's - wearing a blue dress. And police in New Mexico were investigating Epstein's $18 million Zorro Ranch, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported earlier in August.
