There were a dozen FBI agents seen raiding Jeffrey Epstein's private US Virgin Island, which is known as "Pedophile Island." What took so long?
There was a large group of FBI officers headed toward the island on Monday morning. Also agents were driving around on golf carts on the island after the 66-year-old was found dead by suicide Saturday morning. After his death it took less than 48 hours for FBI officers to make their way to his island.
Pedophile Island Raided
The FBI and NYPD are conducting a raid on Jeffrey Epstein’s "pedophile island" where he’d previously hosted some of the most powerful people in the world. Let’s all pray that the island finds a way of revealing everything those powerful people fear it will.pic.twitter.com/Eois6lkDbP

On Friday there were 2,000 pages of documents detailing the allegations pinned against Epstein for the sexual abuse of underage girls. As the case was building stronger and stronger against Epstein before he was found dead Saturday.
An anonymous onlooker told this to DailyMailTV:
"I'm on a boat charter with guests. We are the only guests out here at the moment.
"We were enjoying lunch when we saw over a dozen people getting off their speedboats and landing on the island.
"When we looked harder, we could see the FBI logo on the backs of their shirts.
"It didn't take long for us to realize they must be conducting a raid on Epstein's house."
"Pedophile Island is the epicenter of the ongoing sex trafficking investigation into Epstein.
More on the story from Daily Mail:
Allegations have been made that underage girls were used as sex slaves and repeatedly abused inside a temple on the island.
The raid comes days after the 66-year-old was found dead by suicide in his New York jail cell early on Saturday morning
Many members of the community believe that Epstein hid young girls he allegedly enslaved in underground rooms below the temple and other parts of the island. There is no concrete evidence to support that claim.
Sources say Epstein flew the girls into St. Thomas then shuttled them over to his island on a boat named after Ghislaine Maxwell, his ex-girlfriend and his alleged 'madam'. The boat was called Lady Ghislaine.
The former employee said that guests included Victoria's Secret billionaire Les Wexner, who sold Epstein his Upper East Side home in the 1990s.
The staffer said that he had seen Victoria's Secret models on the island.
Whenever Epstein was there, normally for three to four days at a time, women would sunbathe either nude or topless by the pool as he padded around in shorts and flip flops, they said.
It's pretty amazing how it took so long for this to happen. It's almost like the FBI knows he killed himself and has now decided to act based on he obviously knew some bad stuff was about to come out.
