Four more women accused of supplying young girls for billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein to abuse are facing investigation as it’s revealed Ghislaine Maxwell moved house 36 times in a year before she was caught by the FBI.
Sara Kellen, Adriana Ross, Lesley Groff and Nadia Marcinkova are being investigated for their alleged role in Epstein’s sex-trafficking ring, according to a report in the Sunday Telegraph.
Ms Kellen, dubbed Ghislaine Maxwell’s ‘lieutenant’ by Epstein’s victims, is said to have flown on the paedophile’s ‘lolita express’ almost as many times as the disgraced couple.
Ms Kellen, who is said to have taken a leading role in the sex ring, and the other three women, have previously been accused of recruiting and grooming underage girls for Epstein to sleep with.
One was also said to have been involved in a sexual relationship with the financier.
Sarah Kellen worked as an assistant for Jefferey Epstein and was named in his 2008 plea agreement as ‘potential co-conspirators’
Nada Marcinkova who now goes by Nadia, was allegedly one of Epstein’s victims according to interviews with victims back in 2005, before she began procuring girls for the paedophile herself

According to the Sunday Telegraph, all four of the women received salaries and bonuses for their role in the operation.
Sarah Ransome, then 22, identified Ms Kellen, as well as Ms Maxwell, as being present and calling her in to Epstein’s room before one incident of abuse.
‘When Jeffrey wanted me, you know, Sarah Kellen or Ghislaine would call me into his bedroom, and I had no choice but to go,’ she said.
She said that Ms Kellen and Ms Maxwell would give her sex tips on how to better please Epstein, adding that every girl she brought to the billionaire’s island, she knew was there to sexually please the financier.

The four women were given immunity from prosecution in a deal struck between Epstein and the US Attorney for South Florida in a 2008 criminal case, but the arrest of Ms Maxwell last week has now raised the possibility that the FBI could revisit the case. According to the Sun on Sunday, Ms Maxwell moved 36 times in a desperate attempt to avoid arrest before she was finally placed in cuffs on 2 July.
Responding to the accusations in an earlier statement, Ms Kellen’s lawyers admitted that she scheduled appointments for the couple, and was conscious of the ‘pain and damage Epstein caused’.
Another of the women, Ms Marcinkova, said that she was herself a victim of Epstein’s perversions at the age of 15 after arriving in the US from Slovakia. She is then alleged to have started helping the paedophile to find other underage girls.
The investigation into these additional co-conspirators now largely depends on Ms Maxwell’s willingness to try to reduce her sentence, which could be 35 years if she is found guilty.
Christina Oxenberg, a former associate of Ms Maxwell’s, told the Telegraph that Ms Maxwell had ‘wire-tapped’ the lolita express so that she could later use it for leverage if she was arrested.
‘She will name names. She’s a drowning rat,’ Oxenberg said.
According to another former friend said that Ms Maxwell ‘has tapes of two prominent US politicians having sex with minors’ and boasted of ‘owning’ powerful people.
The ex-jewel robber, who used the pseudonym William Steel, said they ‘forced’ him to watch the footage as they wanted to convince him of their ‘power’.
He also claimed to have seen clips of ‘celebrities’ and ‘world figures’ having ‘threesomes, even orgies’ with minors.
It follows Maxwell, 58, being arrested last Thursday on charges she helped lure at least three girls – one as young as 14 – to be sexually abused by Epstein, who was accused of victimising dozens of girls and women over many years.

Steel told The Sun: ‘They wanted to convince me of their power and who they held in their grip. They boasted about ‘owning’ powerful people.’
He added: ‘I saw videos of very powerful people – celebrities, world figures – in those videos having sex, threesomes, even orgies with minors.’
The former friend also referred to two ‘high-profile’ American politicians who were in videos with minors.
Maxwell, the daughter of the late British publishing magnate Robert Maxwell, is the former girlfriend and long-time close associate of Epstein.
She is accused of facilitating his crimes and on some occasions joined him in sexually abusing the girls, according to the indictment against her.
Several Epstein victims have described Maxwell as his chief enabler, recruiting and grooming young girls for abuse. She has denied wrongdoing and called claims against her ‘absolute rubbish.’
Maxwell was arrested by a team of federal agents last week at a $1 million estate she had purchased in New Hampshire. The investigators had been keeping an eye on Maxwell and knew she had been hiding out in various locations in New England.
She had switched her email address, ordered packages under someone else´s name and registered at least one new phone number under an alias ‘G Max,’ prosecutors have said.

The British socialite will appear in New York’s southern district court on July 14 at 1pm and the hearing will take place over video-link due to coronavirus.
She will join from the ‘hell-hole’ jail where she is being held and only the judge, Alison Nathan, will be present along with one prosecutor and one defence attorney.
Maxwell – a friend to billionaires, celebrities, presidents and royalty before her arrest – is facing a six-count federal indictment which could see her jailed for 35 years.
She is accused in four counts of acting as Epstein’s madam, hunting down and ‘training’ young girls for him to abuse in the late 1990s.
Another two counts accuse her of lying about the abuse to a court when she was sued by one of the victims – Virginia Roberts – in 2015.
However, observers and experts believe she is not the state’s primary target, and will likely be offered a plea deal to turn on others in Epstein’s circle.
Epstein was initially jailed for 18 months in 2008 after being allowed to plead guilty to a single charge of soliciting sex from a child prostitute, despite at one stage facing a 53-page FBI indictment.
