“Epstein lives less than one mile away from me in Palm Beach,” author James Patterson tells The Post.
The shameless horndogs broke into a shipyard in Earlville, snatched a battery charger — and sealed the deal with an X-rated romp, Cairns reported. I was shocked,” said boat owner Will Coe, who spotted the crooks rocking his boat on CCTV footage from November.
Coe worked hard to buy and maintain the 18-foot boat, which he’s now too grossed-out to use, he told the paper.
“It’s a bit disgusting that someone has gone and done that to something you’ve worked so hard for,” he fumed.
“I think I’ll have to throw out the [boat] mattress.
I don’t think I can keep it anymore,” Coe told Daily Mail Australia.
The couple also made waves by swiping several other items from the shipyard, Coe said.
According to a 2011 court filing by alleged Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre, she saw Clinton and Prince Andrew on the island but never saw the former president do anything improper.
Giuffre has accused Prince Andrew of having sex with her when she was a minor, a charge Buckingham Palace denies.
“He’s a fascinating character to read about,” Patterson says. Co-authored with John Connolly and Tim Malloy, the book contains detailed police interviews with girls who alleged sexual abuse by Epstein and others in his circle.
Giuffre alleged that Epstein’s ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the late media tycoon Robert Maxwell, abused her.
However, at least four victims have killed themselves after webcam blackmailers tricked them into performing online sex acts.
