A key witness, in the child sex trafficking case against deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, has vanished “without a trace” as authorities “urgently” seek him for questioning, according to reports.
Millionaire model agency boss Jean-Luc Brunel, 72, has been described as Epstein’s alleged “fixer” or “provider” of underage girls.
Investigators hunting for Brunel, however, say the Frenchman “has disappeared like a ghost without a trace.”
Authorities are making inquiries in Brazil, the US, and Europe as they hunt down Epstein’s co-conspirators.
French prosecutors are also pursuing claims relating to the Clinton-linked financier, who died aged 66 before he could face the latest allegations.
According to the Daily Mail, Brunel – who founded New York’s MC2 – denies any involvement with crimes committed by Epstein.
A Paris legal source told the Daily Mirror: “He is a ghost who has disappeared without a trace.”
