- A Last Will and Testament was signed by Jeffrey Epstein two days before he took his own life in a federal prison cell
- It states that his personal property is worth over $575 million, and that amount will likely go up once his art, antiques and other property is accounted for
- Epstein appointed his lawyer Darren Indyke and friend Richard Kahn as the executors of his estate
- His only heir is listed as his brother Mark, though it states he would only be set to receive all of Epstein’s personal property in the absence of a will
Jeffrey Epstein signed a Last Will and Testament just two days before taking his own life.
In the document, which was filed in a probate court in the US Virgin Islands, Epstein put his net worth at over $577 million, which is almost $20 million more than he told a federal judge he was worth in a court filing last month.
He also listed his brother Mark as his lone heir and appointed his longtime lawyer Darren Indyke and close friend Richard Kahn as the executors of his estate.
Final countdown: A Last Will and Testament was signed by Jeffrey Epstein (above) two days before he took his own life in a federal prison cell
Money matters: His only heir is listed as his brother Mark (above with Maria Marra in 2016) though it states he would only be set to receive all of Epstein’s personal property in the absence of a will
Epstein breaks down his personal property into 12 categories:
- CASH: $56,547,773
- FIXED INCOME INVESTMENTS: $14,304,679
- EQUITIES: $112,679,138
- AVIATION ASSETS, AUTOMOBILES, BOATS: $18,551,700
- HEDGE FUNDS, PRIVATE EQUITY INVESTMENTS: $194,986,301
- NYC MANSION (9 EAST 71ST STREET): $55,931,000
- NEW MEXICO PROPERTY (ZORRO RANCH): $17,246,208
- PARIS APARTMENT (AVENUE FOCH): $8,672,823
- PALM BEACH MANSION (EL BRILLO DRIVE): $12,380,209
- GREAT SAINT JAMES (US VIRGIN ISLANDS): $22,498,600
- LITTLE SAINT JAMES & RED HOOK HARBOR: $63,874,223
- FINE ARTS, ANTIQUES, OTHER PROPERTY: TBD
That adds up to $577,672,654 in personal property.
The New York Post was the first to obtain a copy of the will.
This number will likely surpass $600 million once Epstein’s other assets are figured in to the equation.
A few of those assets were noted in a court filing submitted by prosecutors for the Southern District of New York last month.
‘After conferring with law enforcement agents who have reviewed the materials from the safe, the Government has learned that the safe contained more than $70,000 in cash,’ read a filing by prosecutors arguing against granting Epstein bail.
‘In addition, the safe contained 48 loose diamond stones, ranging in size from approximately 1 carat to 2.38 carats, as well as a large diamond ring.’
It then noted: ‘The Government is currently unaware of whether the defendant maintains similar stashes of cash and/or jewels at his multiple properties, or in other locations. Such ready cash and loose diamonds are consistent with the capability to leave the jurisdiction at a moment’s notice.’
Epstein put all of his holdings in a trust that he called The 1953 Trust, presumably after the year of his birth.
Almost everything about he documents, from the beneficiary to the executors and where it was filed, matched the information given to DailyMail.com by a source last week.
That person would not identify any of the possible recipients of Epstein’s property, but said they were certain that any will that might be filed by the deceased would not be entered in New York Probate Court.
Epstein would instead have the will submitted in the US Virgin Islands, and the source said that his longtime lawyer Darren Indyke would likely be the executor and not his brother.
Both of those statements proved to be true.
In addition to his brother, Epstein is survived by two aunts, an uncle and a cousin who all reside in New York.
Indyke, who is a resident of Florida and New York resident Kahn were both named executors despite the fact that neither man lives in the US Virgin Islands.
Also included in the documents was Epstein’s death certificate, which was submitted before his cause of death had been determined by the coroner.
That reveals that Epstein’s funeral took place last Tuesday in New York City at the Frank Campbell Funeral Home.
It also states that Epstein is a consultant who was born in Brooklyn and lists Little Saint James as his primary residence.
