Former model accused of helping Jefrrey Epstein get under-age girls leaves US

A former model accused of organising under-age girls for Jeffrey Epstein to abuse has left the US as the FBI is poised to make arrests.

Adriana Ross, 36, who was once questioned about Prince Andrew under oath, was tracked down by the Mirror as she left her home in Miami, Florida.

As she packed a case into a car she refused to answer questions about Andrew or her alleged role with Epstein.

And when she later arrived at the city’s cruise terminal with her husband, she insisted: “I have nothing to say.”

US attorney general Bill Barr has vowed to bring to justice those who helped paedophile billionaire Epstein, who killed himself in prison aged 66 in August while awaiting trial on child sex trafficking charges

On Friday night sources told the Mirror that papers were being prepared ahead of “several arrests”.

Ross was one of four female “potential co-conspirators” granted immunity as part of Epstein’s plea deal when he was jailed for procuring teenagers for prostitution in 2008.

She was accused of clearing three computers from Epstein’s home in Palm Beach, Florida, in 2005 before police raided it – but when asked about this she exercised her right to remain silent.

During a civil prosecution in March 2010, she refused to answer questions about Prince Andrew, whose friendship with Epstein has led to public shame.

She was asked: “Has Prince Andrew ever been involved with underage minor females to your knowledge? Have you ever met [him]? Have you flown on [Epstein’s] plane with Andrew?”

Flight logs show Andrew, 59, was with Epstein at least three times on the financier’s private jet, dubbed the Lolita Express.

Lawyers for Epstein’s victims also tackled Ross on notes found in the billionaire’s bin purportedly showing Ross allegedly arranging when and how victims would visit him.
