“Jean-Luc Brunel was being held in an investigation into the alleged rape and trafficking of minors for sexual exploitation, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office.”
This gave rise to a host of conspiracy theories and to the infamous meme and concluding line “Epstein didn’t kill himself.”

Yet another alleged suicide is gaining international attention as Jeffrey Epstein associate and modelling agent Jean-Luc Brunel was found hanged in his Paris jail cell on Saturday. Brunel was reportedly being held in connection with trafficking models to Epstein for illicit purposes.
A modeling agent who was close to disgraced U.S. financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead Saturday in his French jail cell, authorities in Paris say.
Jean-Luc Brunel was being held in an investigation into the alleged rape and trafficking of minors for sexual exploitation, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office.
Victims of the alleged abuse described shock and dismay that the agent will never face trial. They described his death as a double blow after Epstein killed himself in 2019 in a Manhattan jail while awaiting sex-trafficking charges.
. . . . Brunel, who was in his 70s, was detained at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport in 2020 as part of a broad French probe unleashed by the U.S. sex-trafficking charges against Epstein.
A frequent companion of Epstein, Brunel was considered central to the French investigation into alleged sexual exploitation of women and girls by the U.S. financier and his circle. Epstein traveled often to France and had apartments in Paris.
. . . . One of Epstein’s main accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, has alleged that Brunel procured women — some of them minors — for sex with Epstein and others, luring them with promises of modeling work.
The New York Post has more, including photos of Brunel, so click over if you are interested.
Jean-Luc Brunel, 74, was found hanged by his bedsheets in his cell around 1:30 a.m. local time at La Sante prison, the Paris prosecutor’s office told CNN.
. . . . Brunel — who was credited with launching the careers of models Christy Turlington, Monica Belluci and Angie Everhart — went into hiding after Epstein’s own suicide in a Manhattan lockup in August 2019.
French police arrested Brunel in December 2020 as part of a probe into “acts of sexual nature” believed to have been committed by Epstein and accomplices.
He was released under judicial supervision for a few days in November 2021, only to return to custody following a decision by a court of appeals, CNN reported.
. . . . The deaths of Epstein and Brunel, under similar circumstances, have riled up conspiracy theorists who believe that both men were privy to the secrets of some of the world’s most powerful players, including politicians and financiers.
“It was very convenient and yes suspicious,” a veteran Paris police detective told The Post, who nonetheless said he was not yet convinced Brunel was “suicided.”
Another Paris-based photographer who worked with Brunel added, “It’s weird.”
The fun is already starting (and piling on Hillary’s no good, very bad week).
Anyone know where Hillary was this weekend? https://t.co/ewlCbfxRE6
