After billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was taken into custody on sex trafficking charges in New York, a young woman is describing what she says she saw working on his private jet.
A 14-page indictment says Epstein “sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his home in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Florida.”
Epstein has pleaded not guilty.
One woman, Chauntae Davies, took Inside Edition inside the secret world of Epstein, who allegedly used his private jet to fly underage girls to sex parties.
Davies says she worked as Epstein’s personal masseuse.
“On almost every trip that I did go on there were young girls around,” she claimed.
Davies said she became increasingly concerned with the growing number of young women surrounding Epstein. She said the women didn't appear to have regular jobs, and she began to wonder why they were there.
Looking back, she said, there were red flags she should have seen.
The Miami Herald spoke to women who claimed they were molested by Epstein when they were under age.
“You just become this numb figure who refuses to feel, refused to speak, all you do is obey and that's it,” Virginia Roberts told the Herald.
And investigative journalist Vicky Ward was one of the first journalists to expose the allegations against Epstein.
“I think that everybody in the Jeffrey Epstein nexus should be extremely troubled by his arrest, extremely troubled by the indictment,” she told Inside Edition.
Epstein's palatial home in Manhattan’s Upper East Side was raided by FBI agents who say they found thousands of nude photos of underage girls there.
“The alleged behavior shocks the conscience,” officials said Monday at a press conference.
The 66-year-old financier once had a network of powerful friends including President Trump, former President Bill Clinton and England's Prince Andrew.
In 2002, Trump spoke to New York Magazine about Epstein and said, “I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy." He "likes beautiful women as much as I do and many are on the younger side."
The president was asked about the arrest Sunday night. He told reporters, “I don’t know anything about it. That I don't know about.”
