A former model named as a possible accomplice of Jeffrey Epstein broke down in tears as DailyMail.com challenged her to come clean about his vile sex crimes.
Adriana Ross was one of four women named as ‘potential co-conspirators’ but granted immunity from prosecution in Epstein’s controversial 2008 Florida sweetheart deal.
The Polish beauty covered her face and started to sob when DailyMail.com approached her for comment outside a Catholic church close to her home in Miami, Florida.
She refused to answer a string of questions about her ties to the pedophile financier before a male companion shielded her from the camera and ushered her into an SUV.

Ross who worked for Epstein in 2002 in Florida, allegedly arranged some of the ‘massages’ where the alleged abuse took place, refused to speak against him in 2010 civil proceedings and is now a ghost. They are shown together in 2005
‘You don’t know anything,’ growled the man, believed to be her husband. ‘It’s not for you to make a judgment. You don’t know anything about it.’
Ross and several former Epstein associates have come under renewed scrutiny since his apparent suicide Saturday as Feds eye prosecutions against the ‘schedulers’ who assisted his abuse.
The 66-year-old pervert preyed on dozens of girls, some as young as 14, at mansions in New York and Palm Beach, Florida, according to a federal indictment filed in the Southern District of New York.
Prosecutors say he relied on the complicity and organizational nous of ’employees and associates’ to maintain the ‘vast’ sex-trafficking network and target further underage victims.
The newly-unsealed filing says the girls were taken to rooms to perform massages which quickly escalated into vile sex acts as he masturbated or groped them.
Epstein and his associates would then pay the girls hundreds of dollars in cash and perpetuate the cycle of abuse by turning victims into new recruiters.
Similar accusations were levelled at Epstein in 2008 when he agreed a non-prosecution agreement with former Miami federal prosecutor and Trump administration Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta, who resigned last month over the deal.

Epstein pleaded guilty to two prostitution charges in state court in Miami and served a mere 13 months in Palm Beach County Jail, much of the time allowed out on work release.
The controversial pact – which was never run past Epstein’s victims – also extended immunity to at least four ‘potential co-conspirators’, including Ross, Sarah Kellen, Lesley Groff and Nadia Marcinkova.
DailyMailTV exclusively revealed last month the extraordinary steps that Kellen, 40, took to reinvent herself and conceal her sordid past.
She went from a blonde to a brunette and re-emerged as Sarah Kensington, moved to Hawaii and in 2012 started dating NASCAR driver Brian Vickers.
After marrying Vickers in September 2013 she started an upscale interior design company and now divides her time between homes in New York, Miami and North Carolina.
Ross by contrast appears to have assumed a relatively modest life since leaving Epstein’s gilded circle of celebrities, runway models and royalty.
Nadia Marcinkova (left) was allegedly brought to the US by Epstein aged 15. She became his ‘sex slave’, according to other former victims, and engaged in orgies with underage girls, they claimed. Sarah Kellen (far right) was another assistant who handled Epstein’s Rolodex
Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s ‘best friend’ and former girlfriend who other victims named as his ‘madam’ in court documents, has not been heard from
She had moved to Florida in 2002 and was hired to work at Epstein’s sprawling Florida residence, flight records indicating she once flew on his private jet alongside Bill Clinton.
Today, she’s employed as an accountant, works long hours and rarely parties, according to friends.
In 2017, she and 35-year-old husband Ariel Salazar spent $350,000 on a modest two-bed family home in Miami’s Spring Gardens neighborhood, which they plan on renovating.
‘She is a sweetheart. Her husband is a sweetheart, they are nice people, the nicest,’ a neighbor told DailyMailTV.
‘She works as an accountant. They both work really hard. I have never, ever heard her talk about any association with Epstein but, then again, that’s not a badge you want to wear.’
Ross was one of several alleged accomplices questioned in a 2010 civil suit about whether Britain’s Prince Andrew participated in Epstein’s alleged sex ring.
She repeatedly invoked her Fifth Amendment rights, a silence she has maintained to this day.
Attorney General Bill Barr made it clear in the wake of the billionaire’s grim prison cell death that federal investigators are still gunning for his cronies.
‘Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy,’ he said.
‘The victims deserve justice and they will get it.’
