MANCHESTER-BY-THE-SEA, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — It’s the big question at Manchester-by-the-Sea: Is she here?
Ghislaine Maxwell, who is alleged to have overseen a sex trafficking ring run by recently-deceased convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, may or may not be camped out in the famous Massachusetts beach town, CBS News reported Thursday morning.
Maxwell is believed to be important to authorities investigating the case against Epstein now that Epstein is dead, according to CBS News legal analyst Rikki Klieman.
“She has to be concerned that there may be a criminal case coming down the pike,” Klieman said.
WBZ NewsRadio's Karyn Regal drove up a long gravel road to knock on the door of 301 Summer Street mansion where CBS News said Maxwell was believed to be—but Regal said the seven-bedroom home, estimated to be worth over $3 million, was quiet.
CBS News reported a nearby property manager told them Maxwell was living at the mansion, which is owned by Scott Borgeson, an owner of CargoMetrics Technologies LLC. Borgeson has denied this.
Since Epstein's death, Maxwell sightings have popped up all over the world—most recently in Los Angeles, where the New York Post reported she was chowing down on some In-N-Out Burger.
The Post claimed they were told by a neighbor of Borgeson that she left Borgeson's residence a month ago, after news broke of her involvement with Epstein.
Maxwell has been accused of procuring girls for Epstein.
She, along with Epstein's estate and three of his unnamed employees, were targeted in a lawsuit filed Wednesday by 32-year-old Jennifer Araoz.
Araoz claims in a New York Times op-ed that Epstein raped her in his New York townhouse. Furthermore, she accuses Maxwell of protecting the sex ring and providing at least three girls to Epstein on a daily basis.
In a 2015 deposition, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, 36, said Maxwell and Epstein groomed her to be a sex slave since the age of 16.
United States Attorney General William Barr vowed after Epstein's death that any alleged co-conspirators "should not rest easy."
