More than 20 years after a woman named Maria Farmer first reported Jeffrey Epstein to the FBI in 1996 for molesting children, the federal government arrested him in 2019 for "sex trafficking of minors." Five weeks later, this uber-wealthy financier with hordes of friends in high places was dead. Epstein's death occurred one day after a federal court unsealed more than 2,000 pages of lawsuit records that named and implicated wealthy and powerful people in Epstein's child sex crimes, as well as federal officials in covering up the crimes.
