Ghislaine Maxwell is an 'extreme flight risk' with 3 passports and millions in the bank, prosecutors say

This article is a good review of Maxwell's history, alleged criminal history and recent travels and locations.....

Excerpts:
Prosecutors, in a memo asking that Maxwell be held in jail without bail, argued that the heiress' wealth and international connections made her a flight risk. In the last three years alone, the daughter of British media baron Robert Maxwell has been on 15 international flights to countries like the United Kingdom, Japan, and Qatar, they said in a court filing.
+++
In a teleconferenced court hearing Thursday, a federal judge in New Hampshire, where the FBI arrested her, ordered that Maxwell be taking into the custody of US marshals and transferred to New York City, where she will have the right to a bail hearing.
+++
"In short, Maxwell has three passports, large sums of money, extensive international connections, and absolutely no reason to stay in the United States and face the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence," prosecutors wrote.
+++
Investigators for the US Attorney's office have been tracking Maxwell's whereabouts while she has stayed out of the public eye. "Most recently, the defendant appears to have been hiding on a 156-acre property acquired in an all-cash purchase in December 2019 (through a carefully anonymized LLC) in Bradford, New Hampshire, an area to which she has no other known connections," the detention document states. "The defendant appears to have no ties that would motivate her to remain in the United States."

The article also includes access to the full detention memo from SDNY.

1. Gee, ya think?

Given that she's been on the lam for months while everybody in the world knows she's wanted for questioning and worse.

4. Could be wrong but I don't think there were any outstanding warrants out....

on her until this arrest, but they did keep track of her because she was a suspect.

I do believe they did some use court action to prevent her from leaving the U.S. Otherwise, she would have disappeared months ago.

5. Cell phones and bank account usage I would guess.

The article said they had even tracked her buying merchandise under false names.

Investigators found that Maxwell has been associated with more than 15 bank accounts since 2016 and, during that time, transferred money from those accounts ranging from hundreds of thousands of dollars to more than $20 million.

She has also reported that she owns at least one foreign bank account containing more than $1 million, the government says. Real estate sales have also added to the socialite's wealth.

In 2016, Maxwell sold a New York City home for $15 million. Around the date of the sale, amounts totaling more than $14 million were deposited into one of her accounts. That money was moved to another account soon after.

3. I can't understand why she stayed in the US

She had to know they were coming for her eventually. I guess maybe she thought she was untouchable? I don't know.

12. Also occurred to me she may have felt safest in the U.S......

because with so many wealthy foreigners in her little black book, she might be in far more danger elsewhere.

Epstein and all his associates really were operating in the deep dark underworld........

13. I'm not sure there was that much money

Apart from that supplied by Epstein, and I guess that amount will be unknown.

What is common knowledge is that after her father died, her finances were greatly reduced and Epstein was able to fill the void. In return, Ghislaine had the social contacts and kudos that Epstein craved.

8. Neither do I. She's kind of been hiding in plain sight.

Over the past years, I have seen photos of her out in California and have heard she was here in MA, and eventually they nabbed her in NH. I'm sure she has surfaced in other places around the US as well.

Why wouldn't she have just gone back to Europe where it would have been much more difficult to track her down? As far as I know, she's not a "wanted" person over there. It's almost like she was begging to be caught.

11. I am honestly quite surprised

She had not already relocated to some island nation without an extradition treaty.
