Residents of the Caribbean islands are suspicious of what Jeffrey Epstein used his property for. The Little Saint James Island, owned by Epstein, is shrouded in secrecy amid speculation over the so-called “Lolita Express” operation there.
Residents say former employees on the Epstein property were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements. The island also featured tight security and limited access to the territory owned by Epstein.
Locals say Epstein used a black helicopter to fly between the island and the international airport in Saint Thomas.
“Well I mean it will have some kind of notoriety yes, but I mean it’s not as indicative as a place. He is a person who owns an island in the Virgin Islands, but that’s not us; that’s not the Virgin Islands people.”

Victims of Epstein’s sex-trafficking ring have also claimed former President Bill Clinton was a frequent guest to the island.
