This unmarked stone crypt at an exclusive Jewish mausoleum is the likely final resting place of Jeffrey Epstein, DailyMail.com can reveal.
Sources believe the pedophile financier’s remains were transported to Loxahatchee, Florida so they could be entombed beside his parents, Pauline ‘Paula’ and Seymour.
Cemetery staff there have refused to say why they mysteriously removed the couple’s memorial plate last Wednesday – the day after 66-year-old Epstein’s low-key funeral in New York – and replaced it with a blank white slab.
The neighboring crypt has a brand new, unmarked plate but when DailyMail.com contacted Epstein’s only sibling Mark to confirm that the sex offender’s remains were sealed inside, he raged: ‘It’s nobody’s f**king business.’
Mark, 65 – sole heir to the warped predator’s $577 million fortune – added: ‘It’s a private family matter, you got that? I’m not going to answer your question.’
Jeffrey Epstein was laid to rest beside his parents Pauline and Seymour Epstein at a Jewish mausoleum in Loxahatchee, Florida. The pedophile financier’s final resting place is an eye-level compartment in a large community crypt housing dozens of other Jewish graves. The modest tomb is in keeping with Jewish tradition although starkly different to the grandeur Epstein enjoyed before child sex abuse allegations brought his jet-set lifestyle crashing down
The adjacent chamber contains the remains of Pauline ‘Paula’ and Seymour Epstein, though their memorial plate was mysteriously removed last week and replaced with a blank slab to keep the location secret
The 66-year-old died by suicide on August 10 in his New York prison cell while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking of underage girls
Mark Epstein, the warped predator’s only sibling, organized the discreet burial at the IJ Morris Star of David Cemetery of the Palm Beaches after holding a low-key funeral service last week in New York. When DailyMail.com contacted him to confirm that the sex offender’s remains were sealed inside, he raged: ‘It’s nobody’s f**king business’
The exclusive palm-lined cemetery on the fringes of the Florida Everglades is a 30-minute drive from the waterfront Palm Beach mansion where Epstein is said to have preyed upon many of his underage victims
The twinned granite vaults are located in a large community mausoleum housing dozens of other Jewish graves at the IJ Morris Star of David Cemetery of the Palm Beaches.
They are modest and in keeping with Jewish tradition, starkly different to the grandeur Epstein enjoyed before child sex abuse allegations brought his jet-set lifestyle crashing down.
However plots and mausoleum spots there are believed to cost as much as $250,000, owing to its proximity to wealthy Palm Beach.
IJ Morris is part of the Dignity Memorial network of funerals homes and cemeteries.
Parent company Service Corporation International released a further statement on behalf of IJ Morris, saying: ‘As part of our commitment to all families, we guard their privacy and do not discuss specific matters with the media.’
Between them, the Epstein brothers own numerous properties including an 8,000-acre ranch in New Mexico and an entire private island in the US Virgin Islands that could have discreetly hosted his grave.
But Mark appears to have chosen the same spot where their 74-year-old dad Seymour G. Epstein, a groundskeeper for the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, was laid to rest in 1991.
The remains of their mom Paula, a school aide and homemaker, were placed in the same tomb when she died in 2004, aged 85.
The exclusive palm-lined cemetery on the fringes of the Florida Everglades is a 30-minute drive from the Palm Beach mansion where Epstein is said to have preyed upon many of his underage victims.
New York City’s Medical Examiner confirmed last week that Epstein committed suicide by hanging himself in a federal jail cell as he waited to go on trial for child sex trafficking.
A source told DailyMail.com that spaces at the Star of David Cemetery are highly sought-after owing to the cemetery’s proximity to super-wealthy Palm Beach. ‘It looks modest but you need a serious amount of money to be buried here,’ dished our insider. ‘I’ve heard people pay as much as $250,000 to get a spot’
It is believed that Epstein’s remains were secretly transported to Florida before being loaded into a black minivan and discreetly driven through the cemetery gates with a police escort following close behind
Officials say Epstein hanged himself with a bed sheet as he waited to face charges of sex trafficking of a minor and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking. He was found with several broken bones in his neck when guards were doing their morning rounds on Saturday August 10
His death also prompted outrage and disbelief over how such a high-profile prisoner, known for fraternizing with socialites, royalty and presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, could have been left without surveillance
The death sparked outrage among his numerous victims who are desperate to know how such a high-profile prisoner was allowed to cheat justice and carry his dark secrets to the grave.
Epstein’s death certificate states that Mark took charge of his brother’s body last Tuesday before organizing a funeral at the exclusive Frank E. Campbell funeral chapel in Manhattan’s Madison Avenue.
The State of New York paperwork lists the method of disposal as ‘entombment’ – but does not reveal a location.
However a sudden police presence and increased security at the Star of David Cemetery of the Palm Beaches last week hinted at a high-profile arrival.
Then, in a mysterious twist, his parent’s engraved memorial plate was discreetly switched out for a blank white slab on Wednesday afternoon in an apparent attempt to keep their location secret.
Staff had prepared for Epstein’s arrival by beefing up security around the sprawling 26-acre memorial site, sandwiched between tropical swampland and a golf course
On Saturday, when the cemetery is usually closed for the Jewish Sabbath, an unmarked black minivan was seen driving through the wrought iron gates with a police escort.
When DailyMail.com reporters attempted to access the sprawling memorial site sandwiched between tropical swampland and a golf course we were warned it was trespassing.
Mausoleum spaces at the Star of David Cemetery are typically more expensive than burial plots – but are considered more secure.
Jonathan Weis, funeral director for IJ Morris, the firm that operates the 26-acre cemetery, refused to discuss Epstein, telling DailyMail.com: ‘I don’t have any information for you’.
He wouldn’t confirm the convicted sex offender’s parents were entombed there either, despite funeral records indicating the location and DailyMail.com obtaining a photograph of their memorial plate.
IJ Morris has a second location in Brooklyn, New York and boasts of its expertise in transporting Jewish remains over long distances and to and from Israel.
Officials say Epstein hanged himself with a bed sheet as he waited to face charges of sex trafficking of a minor and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking.
He was found with several broken bones in his neck when guards were doing their morning rounds on Saturday August 10.
The revelation that his thyroid bone was broken – an injury typically recorded in strangulations – led to wild speculation that Epstein was murdered in his cell.
His death also prompted outrage and disbelief over how such a high-profile prisoner, known for fraternizing with socialites, royalty and presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, could have been left without surveillance.
Epstein’s legal team contested the manner of his death and insisted on their own private medical examiner running independent tests.
They also launched a blistering attack last week on the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, saying ‘no one should die in jail’ and attacking the ‘medieval’ conditions at the federal facility.
Epstein was arrested July 6 and pleaded not guilty to federal charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14.
The case was closed because of his death but Attorney General Bill Barr has made it clear that federal investigators are still gunning for his cronies.
The billionaire was already a registered sex offender after pleading guilty in 2008 to Florida state charges of unlawfully paying a teenage girl for sex.
However he served a mere 13 months in jail, much of the time allowed out on work release, after agreeing a controversial ‘sweetheart deal’ to avoid federal charges.
Prior to his conviction, Epstein had counted the rich and powerful, including Trump, Clinton, director Woody Allen, Britain’s Prince Andrew and Saudi leader Mohammad bin Salman, among his associates.
Clinton and Trump both said they hadn’t seen Epstein in years and knew nothing of his misconduct when new charges were brought against him.
Epstein’s will, filed in a probate court in the U.S. Virgin Islands but made public this week, put his net worth at over $577 million.
