After the conviction of his girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, the next target for prosecutors in the Jeffrey Epstein crime investigation could be a longtime associate who allegedly booked a “massage” appointment for the perverted millionaire and nude photo of the victim.
Sarah Kellen, 42, was once identified in lawsuits filed by Epstein’s victims as his “lieutenant” who was “both his scheduler and recruiter/collector” buy girls.”
“Indeed, Kellen was part of Epstein’s inner circle for more than a decade and was named among four ‘potential accomplices’ in the Florida financier’s clemency deal in 2008,” Daily Monster Saturday report. “Now, following Maxwell’s guilty verdict, Kellen was one of Epstein’s longtime associates who could still face criminal charges.

Kellen’s name appeared dozens of times during Maxwell’s trial as the person who “answered the phone at (Epstein)’s Florida mansion, scheduled his massage, called his pilot. me to arrange flights on his private jet and deliver packages to (one victim).”
Kellen did not testify during the trial, as prosecutors did not give her immunity and defense attorneys said she would plead for the Fifth Amendment.
A month after Epstein’s death in 2019, Kellen became one of his victims.
“Her spokesman Tracy Schmaler has said she was 22 years old when Epstein and Maxwell recruited her as an assistant to the British heiress,” the Daily Beast reported.
“Very soon after Sarah was brought into Epstein’s world, he began sexually abusing her, and this abuse continued for many years,” Schmaler said.
Kellen then apparently filed a lawsuit against her estate in the name of Jane Doe, as well as asking for the Epstein Victims Compensation Program. But Edwards said Kellen never did anything to help other victims.
“Edwards sees Kellen as someone with a position below Maxwell in the Epstein campaign,” the Daily Beast reported.
“It’s about time Ghislaine got smarter and started bringing up the buffers and one of the buffers she set was Sarah,” he said.
