From NY Post: The model agency boss accused of scouting young girls for pedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein has disappeared like a “ghost,” as investigators scour the globe searching for him, a new report said.
French authorities want to quiz Jean-Luc Brunel, 72, over his ties to Epstein as part of their own probe into the late financier who had a house in Paris, according to the Daily Mirror. “He is a ghost who has disappeared without a trace,” a legal source in Paris told the paper of Brunel, who discovered some of the biggest names in modeling, including Christy Turlington and Angie Everhardt.
Investigators have made inquiries throughout the US and Europe, as well as Brazil, where the Frenchman was seen looking for girls just three months before Epstein, 66, was arrested, the paper says.
“There is no address for him, all his internet accounts, including social media, have been wiped out. He is uncontactable,” the source told the Mirror.
Brunel has long been connected to the Epstein scandal in numerous court filings.
Epstein had invested $1 million to help launch Brunel’s Miami-based modeling firm MC2 in return for a “supply of girls on tap,” according to one lawsuit — even allegedly sending him three 12-year-old girls as a sick birthday present.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of Epstein’s longtime accusers, alleged in court papers that Brunel “farmed out” modeling hopefuls to Epstein and that she was also forced to have sex with the model agency boss.
Brunel previously denied being involved “directly or indirectly” in crimes involving Epstein, who killed himself in a Manhattan federal lockup on Aug. 10.
“I strongly deny having committed any illicit act or any wrongdoing in the course of my work as a scouter or model agencies manager,” Brunel told the Guardian in 2015.
