Zorro Ranch Sale: $27.5 Million

Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous Zorro Ranch hit the market this week with a gaudy price of $27.5 million. Located south of Santa Fe, N.M. in the village of Stanley, the 30,000-square-foot, 8,000-acre property is where Epstein was accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women and girls. Epstein was convicted of sex trafficking in July 2019 and allegedly committed suicide by hanging in the New York Metro Correctional Center one month later.

In the following report from KRQE-TV in Albuquerque, interior photos of the mansion were posted for the first time in Sotheby’s International Realty, revealing extravagant gold and red trimmings in a living room and detailed molding in the library. Also discovered on the property were three never-seen homes called The Blue House, The Lodge and The Log Cabin. There also was an area called ranch central adjacent to the main residence, dotted with several homes, a general store and a firehouse.

Earlier this year, Epstein’s Manhattan mansion sold for for $51 million and his compound in Palm Beach, Fla., sold for $18.5 million. Here’s more from KRQE-TV.

What Motivated Ghislaine?

The question that has baffled authorities for years is what motivated Ghislaine Maxwell to procure for convicted sex trafficker and now allegedly diseased Jeffrey Epstein? British investigative journalist John Sweeney says the answer lies deeply in the psyches of both of these troubled players.

Sweeney says that when a former Vanity Fair reporter interviewed Epstein at his Manhattan mansion, she noticed only one book on the shelf and it’s Marquis de Sade, the French writer known for his violent sexual fantasies. The reporter also noted the walls were decorated with creepy glass eyes, originally made for injured British soldiers during World War I. When authorities raided his palatial home in Palm Beach, Fla., they discovered an Amazon receipt for three books on sadomasochism. Sweeney says there’s sufficient evidence that Epstein was into sadomasochism, though of a more psychological than physical nature.

Harken back to British billionaire Robert Maxwell and you’ll discover the same skullduggery–fraudster and consummate liar who led a life of thievery and deception. So what was Ghislaine’s motivation to hook up with Epstein? Says Sweeney, “When her father dies, Ghislaine loses one monster. She goes to Manhattan and finds another.” Here’s more detail with Sweeney and Shaun Attwood.
