With Jeffrey Epstein gone and dead, the focus of prosecutors is turning to those alleged to have information on the supposedly suicided billionaire pedophile and to those accused of being connected to the infamous Epstein sex trafficking ring.
One of these men with connections to Epstein is French modeling agent Jean Luc-Brunel – who was named in the unsealed documents that incriminated many elites just one day before Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his jail cell.
Brunel is thought to possess key information in uncovering Epstein’s sex crimes and bringing as much justice as possible to the women victimized by the sex trafficking. However, ever since this separate investigation into Epstein’s sexual misconduct was launched, Brunel has apparently vanished, “like a ghost without a trace.”
Breitbart has more to say about the mysterious disappearance of Jean Luc-Brunel:
The British tabloid says the former Epstein associate is Frenchman Jean-Luc Brunel, who founded the New York City-based modeling agency MC2. The Mail states investigators have sought assistance from authorities in the United States, Europe, and Brazil to track down the elusive Brunel.
Former MC2 model Svetlana Pozhidaeva was photographed at Epstein’s $77-million Manhattan mansion in 2016. Reports of Brunel’s disappearance comes after French prosecutors launched a separate investigation into Epstein’s alleged sex crimes.
Last week, the Daily Mail published a photo of Brunel cuddling with Ghislaine Maxwell, a longtime friend and alleged procurer of underage girls, at Epstein’s “Little Saint James” private Caribbean Island.
Epstein owned a home in Paris, where Brunel also reportedly lived. The agency boss is said to have visited Brazil at the beginning of the summer to search for new modeling talent. However, locating Brunel has proven difficult, as investigators say he is “uncontactable” because he has no address or social media accounts, according to the Mail.
Last week, a judge formally ended the criminal case against Epstein, but not without a final tribute to the women who spoke out against the financier.
U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman took the procedural step of adding his initials to an order dismissing the indictment that charged the 66-year-old Epstein with conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors and sex trafficking of minors in the early 2000s in Florida and New York.
Daily Mail gave further details:
A millionaire model agency boss who is thought to have key information about the Jeffrey Epstein scandal 'has disappeared like a ghost without a trace'.
Jean-Luc Brunel, 72, has vanished as police seek to ask the Frenchman 'urgent' questions about the paedophile.
Investigators are making enquiries in Brazil, the US and Europe and French prosecutors are also pursuing claims relating to the financier, who died aged 66 before he could face the latest allegations.
A friend of Prince Andrew, predator Epstein killed himself in jail on August 10 as he faced child sex trafficking charges.
Brunel - who founded New York's MC2 - denies any involvement with crimes committed by Epstein.
A Paris legal source told the Daily Mirror: 'He is a ghost who has disappeared without trace.'
It comes after former model Svetlana Pozhidaeva, who was signed to MC2, was pictured at convicted paedophile Epstein's mansion in New York back in 2016.
