British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell in spotlight after Epstein's apparent suicide

(NBC News) Maxwell is a former longtime member of Jeffrey Epstein's inner circle. He once called her his "best friend."

The apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, who was found unresponsive Saturday morning in his federal jail cell, is the latest stunning development in the case against the once-powerful financier on charges of sex trafficking.

His death came hours after the release of 2,000 pages of court documents, part of a related lawsuit, that revealed allegations that Epstein and a former longtime member of his inner circle, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, ordered a teenage girl to have sex with high-powered men.

The U.S. prosecutor in Manhattan, where Epstein was held pending trial, said Saturday that the investigation into the charges in the indictment against him, including one count of conspiracy, will continue.

One person who could come under a greater focus is Maxwell.

Daughter of the late publishing mogul Robert Maxwell, she was a close friend and confidante of Epstein's after they were first romantically linked in the early 1990s, according to reports.

Her name resurfaced Friday after the release of the cache of court papers relating to a 2015 federal defamation lawsuit filed by Virginia Roberts Giuffre against Maxwell.

Giuffre, now 36, claims in a 2016 deposition in the court filings that Epstein and Maxwell groomed her to become a "sex slave" for high-powered men starting when she was 16.

And didn’t Trump meet Melania through Epstein?

4. I'd wager that Epstein, Maxwell, and Melania were all Russian pawns.

5. That's an odd portmanteau sort of name.

Who are you?

Jan. A good Czech name available to anybody, Husite or Catholic or Protestant.

Ludvik. A good German name, esp. important given the Germans' status at the time, but probably not given to somebody into Czech(oslovak) nationalism--the same kind of Czech nationalism as espoused by the likes of Gandhi or anybody else who doesn't like their country occupied and divided (and yet doesn't particularly feel like killing over it).

Hyman. A good conservative Jewish name, the kind who would live the entirety of their lives in Jozefuv.

Binyamin. A good fairly moderate Jewish name, the kind who might live in Jozefuv or in Brno or in Kladno or even in Mala strana.

Even his last name is ambiguous between a German and fairly colloquial Czech word, "high" versus "guy".

It's sort of like my made up name along the lines of Thomas Ashok Ivanovich Al-Gharbi y Chang. You can self-name by the context in which you chameleon.

7. That's her on the right.

One take from The Guardian:
However, when it came to female associates, the evidence now suggests Epstein cultivated two separate spheres that rarely overlapped.

One – restricted to a small group of women co-opted as permanent fixtures in Epstein’s entourage – was rooted in that world of almost unimaginable luxury.

The other comprised working-class Palm Beach teenagers who told police they were enticed into giving massages and sometimes more at Epstein’s mansion with the promise of cash.

Here's "overlap," of course: Prince Andrew, plaintiff Virginia Roberts, and Maxwell.
