SEX abuse victims have asked a court to order Ghislaine Maxwell to reveal her whereabouts – after a team of private detectives failed to track her down.
The socialite – accused of being the pimp of sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein – has not been seen since last summer, when the billionaire beast killed himself in prison.
Maxwell – a close friend of Prince Andrew – is being investigated by the FBI over allegations that she procured girls for Epstein and is also being sued by a number of his victims.
Now lawyers for Annie Farmer, who claims that Maxwell and Epstein molested her, have filed court papers claiming that the Brit has implied “she is no longer a resident of New York”.
Her attorneys add – in papers seen by The Sun – that the “court should require her to provide the factual basis for that argument by testifying at an evidentiary hearing”.
The attempt to draw Maxwell, 58, into revealing her address comes after another Epstein victim, Jennifer Araoz, said private investigators could not find her either.
Ms Araoz claims Maxwell participated in a sex trafficking ring with Epstein, but her lawyers grew frustrated at not being able to serve the accomplice with court papers.
In a court filing, they said that Araoz “has made repeated efforts to locate Ms Maxwell, including retaining private investigators to conduct surveillance” to no avail.
