After details of Jeffrey Epstein's decades-long sex trafficking criminal behavior have started to cool down after the man was killed in an in-prison suicide last August, the recent arrest of his well-known associate, the British socialite and philanthropist Ghislaine Maxwell rekindled the story all over again. Many of the world's most famous names are reportedly in fear of being mentioned in Maxwell's revelations.

Being one of Epstein's closest confidants, Maxwell is facing six charges all connected to helping the famous American financier and later convicted sex offender in recruiting and grooming minors.

Epstein had been arrested a year ago after he was charged with sex trafficking of minors in New York and Florida before he was found dead in his prison cell on the 10th of August 2019 at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York.

News of his death had sparked a lot of doubt over whether he had actually ended his own life or if he was killed in a scheme to hide any information he might expose in relation to prominent world figures or not, especially the second son of the Queen of England, Prince Andrew.

Last December, the Guardian published a report with many details regarding the over a decade-long friendship between the disgraced American businessman and the Duke of York. It  included records of "a birthday party the prince threw for Maxwell at Sandringham House, the private residence of the Queen, in 2000" and several trips the two men took together in Florida and Thailand.

Following his death last August, 16 women came forward with personal anecdotes detailing sex offensives carried out against them by Epstein and other men in his social circle. In October 2019, Virginia Roberts Giuffre revealed that she was "sex trafficked to Prince Andrew in London through Epstein and Maxwell."

Giuffre had detailed that she had met Maxwell when she was working as a spa attendant at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida when the British socialite hired her "as a private traveling masseuse for Epstein."

While Maxwell's long-awaited arrest has been celebrated by Giuffre and other Epstein's victims, Giuffre who attended a court hearing last week expressed her joy over watching Maxwell at court, saying that Maxwell had collapsed during the hearing; sobbing: "Why is this happening?" the New York Post reported.

In a recent report by The Sun, Prince Andrew has "canceled an annual golfing holiday he takes to Spain" in fear of being persecuted following Maxwell's arrest.

Yet, the Telegraph reported that a close friend of Maxwell's stressed that she "will never provide any information on Prince Andrew."

Following this news, many commentators expressed their interest in knowing whether investigations with Maxwell will result in any direct mention of the Duke of York or not and whether other well-known names will be convicted eventually, especially if a plea deal was possible for exchange of information on other sex offenders who might be on the loose.

Social media users also wondered if Maxwell's confessions will highlight other names of people who were close to her deceased boss, such as the Clintons, US President Donald Trump, Al Gore, or Bill Gates.

Some even expressed their worry that Maxwell might face the same destiny as Epstein's if she was to expose any prominent people.
