Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged suicide over the weekend has shocked many people on both sides of the political aisle.
While some may be hoping his case will go away following his suspicious death, the FBI just raided the one place Epstein hoped they would never look.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail, a large group of FBI agents raided Epstein’s private island off the coast of the island of St. Thomas.
Epstein’s private palace — which has been dubbed his “Orgy Island” — in the U.S. Virgin Islands is so important because it’s where he allegedly took underage girls for many years to sexually exploit and abuse them.
“We were enjoying lunch when we saw over a dozen people getting off their speedboats and landing on the island,” one onlooker who viewed the operation from a charter boat told the Daily Mail.
“When we looked harder, we could see the FBI logo on the backs of their shirts. It didn’t take long for us to realize they must be conducting a raid on Epstein’s house,” the Daily Mail added.
Below are a few pictures and videos of the FBI’s raid:

But soon after his suspicious “suicide” on Saturday, investigators are now reportedly focusing on who might have helped with his illicit activities and where the alleged sexual encounters may have taken place.
Epstein was arrested and charged last month for allegedly running a sex traffic ring with underage girls.
With Epstein dead, perhaps prosecutors are now aiming to put his top allies behind bars.
Attorney General William Barr released a statement soon after Epstein’s death and said he was “appalled” to learn of the death.
Barr also said the FBI has opened an investigation as well as the Department of Justice’s Inspector General office into the circumstances of his death.
“Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death,” Barr said in his statement.
The FBI and the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General will investigate the circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death.
Here’s where things get even more suspicious.
A mysterious camera malfunction has prevented any footage of Epstein’s alleged suicide from being captured.
And top government officials are also sounding the alarm.
It’s “very difficult to understand how something like this could have happened,” New York Attorney General Letitia James said.
“My understanding is that he should have been on suicide watch and the people on suicide watch are placed in a type of jumpsuit that wouldn’t allow them to hurt themselves or others,” she added.
While Epstein is reportedly dead, many rich and powerful people around the world are probably still scared over what might be released to the public.
Adding more fuel to the fire, the Clinton family is likely still sweating bullets given their disturbing connection to Epstein.
In fact, one photo from Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding likely has the former first daughter furious.
