In Quest Red’s new true crime documentary special Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein? it is alleged that socialite Ghislaine Maxwell – Epstein’s former partner – procured girls for Epstein to ‘satisfy his insatiable sex drive.’
Socialite writer Christina Oxenberg, 57, from the US, who is a friend of Maxwell, notes that Maxwell felt no guilt in procuring girls for his pleasure.
‘She says he has an incredible sex drive, he has to have three orgasms a day, so I help him out by bringing in the females,’ explains Christina. ‘She felt no compunction about telling me this, if anything she was proud.’
Christina is the daughter of a Serbian princess and sister of the Hollywood actress, Catherine Oxenberg – who rescued her eldest daughter India, now 28, from the Nxivm sex cult run by its leader, Keith Raniere, after an 18 month battle.
India was among the women he recruited under the guise of offering them self-help courses. Her actress mother pulled her out of it in 2018 after fighting relentlessly in the press to expose Raniere and his practices.

The documentary dives headfirst into the Epstein story, examining the mysterious circumstances surrounding the financier’s death, aiming to answer one vital question: Did Epstein take his own life, or was it something much more sinister?
On 10th August 2019, disgraced American financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his New York prison cell as he awaited his trial on sex trafficking charges.
It was a dramatic end to one of the world’s most mysterious billionaires, with the coroner officially ruling the cause of death as suicide.
But it wasn’t long before the circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death were called into question.
Having being linked with some of the world’s most influential and powerful celebrity figures – including Prince Andrew, Donald Trump and Bill Clinton – some believe that Epstein may have been murdered.

Jeffrey Epstein first met Ghislaine Maxwell – the daughter of newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell – in the 1990s.
As an affluent socialite, Maxwell divided her time between New York and London, attending parties and social events.
As Laura Goldman, a Maxwell family friend, states in the documentary, Maxwell liked to have a good time.
‘She was part of the scene, she liked to party, she was a goodtime girl,’ she says.
But in 1991, Ghislaine’s life came crashing down when allegations of fraud were aimed at her father following his death.

‘After he died, it was discovered that he’d robbed his employees’ pension funds to prop up his businesses,’ journalist Thomas Volscho explains.
Broke, Maxwell fled to New York to reclaim her social status. While in the city, a friend introduced her to Jeffrey Epstein, and the pair struck up a relationship.

Gradually, Ghislaine brought Epstein into her social circle, introducing him to several high-profile figures, including Donald Trump and Prince Andrew.
As Legal Analyst Ashleigh Banfield argues, Epstein began to ‘wriggle his way into the upper echelons of New York’s society’ – all while hiding his sexual proclivities.
Over time, as Maxwell became a part of Epstein’s sordid world, their relationships developed into something much more sinister, as Trafficking Victims Advocate Conchita Sarnoff explains.
‘Maxwell became the mistress of the house; she would also procure the girls that she felt he [Epstein] would like, she says.
An Epstein survivor also details her encounter with the businessman, and how she feared for her life as she was subjected to vile abuse.
Maria Farmer, Epstein’s former Receptionist, recalls the suspicious activity she noticed while working at his New York mansion.
‘I saw a lot of children coming in, little girls,’ she recalls. ‘I remember thinking, how can this many young girls be coming and going. What’s the deal?’
Catherine Oxenberg on saving her daughter from a sex cult
Catherine’s mission to save her daughter is recounted in her book, Captive, which describes how cheerful, intelligent India, now 27, slowly became drawn into Nxivm (pronounced ‘Nexium’) – an organisation that promised ‘personal and professional growth’, but was a front for an alleged sex-slave cult.
Founded by Keith Raniere, who’s awaiting trial on sex trafficking and racketeering charges, the cult starved its female members and coerced them into having sex with Raniere – though he denies this.
At one stage Catherine and her daughter didn’t speak for nine months.
‘There were times I thought I’d lost her,’ says Catherine.
‘But I had a primal urge to save her. If I have a message for other parents, it’s never give up on your child.’
The daughter of Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia and her first husband, businessman Howard Oxenberg, Catherine, 57, grew up socialising with her cousins Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
She’s even spoken of being courted by Prince Andrew, saying ‘Andrew asked me to marry him on the Palace balcony before Charles and Diana’s wedding.
‘I’d decided I wanted to act so I said no, and he said he’d wait.
‘It’s probably not healthy to marry a cousin anyway.

In the documentary, Maria also describes her own experiences of abuse at the hands of Epstein while staying with him.
Led into a room by Maxwell, Maria remembers being told to give Epstein a foot massage when the abuse took place.
‘I remember him moaning and being very dramatic and so I said, “oh I think I’m not very good at this.”‘
He put his hand like this and started arming me on my chest, and she [Maxwell] mirrored him,’ she says. ‘So, they were both like twisting me on my chest and it was really strange, and I felt really uncomfortable and embarrassed.’
Maria admits that, at one point, she even feared for her life.
‘I remember thinking she was so disgusting,’ she explains. ‘That was, for me, the greatest moment of horror. I remember thinking that I was going to die too and thinking about my mother and how my mum was going to handle this.’
