The Florida mansion where Jeffrey Epstein is said to have sexually abused underage girls will be demolished by a local real-estate developer.
The developer, Todd Michael Glaser, told The Wall Street Journal that he’s signed a contract with Epstein’s estate to buy the dead pedophile’s waterfront Palm Beach property, which went on the market for $21.995 million in July.
The deal is set to close next month, after which Glaser said he plans to raze the property and replace it with a new home.
“Palm Beach is going to be very happy that it’s gone,” he told the Journal.
Glaser wouldn’t tell the newspaper how much he and his partners paid for the late financier’s property, but he said they received a discount.
Another person close to the deal told the Journal the price was close to $18 million.
The sprawling estate includes a main house with six bedrooms, a three-bedroom staff house and a pool house.
In July, the front gate was vandalized with the words “GONE BUT NOT FORGIVEN” written in blood red paint.
Epstein has long been accused of luring numerous underage girls to the mansion with the promise of jobs, before sexually abusing them.
He was locked up on sex-trafficking charges in New York when he committed suicide in August 2019.
Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse is still on the market with an asking price of $88 million.
