FBI and NYPD Officers Seen in Drone Footage of Epstein Island Raid

The private island owned by recently deceased convicted sex offender and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was subject to federal raids on August 12.

Drone footage posted to YouTube under the moniker Rusty Shackleford shows FBI agents and New York Police Department officers searching buildings and removing objects from the Little Saint James, US Virgin Islands, residence.

The operation came after Epstein’s death by suspected suicide on August 10 while awaiting trial in a Manhattan detention center.
