Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell are said to have kept a secret lair at the Interlochen Centre for the Arts where they took some of their victims. The Center is a boarding school for children. Epstein gave the school money and it, in turn, let him build The Jeffrey Epstein Scholarship Lodge.
Epstein endowed the school with the lodge in exchange for being able to stay there for two weeks out of the year.
Jewel, Josh Groban, and Norah Jones, comedian Maria Bamford, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, and actors Terry Crews and Felicity Huffman all attended the Interlochen Centre for the Arts. Epstein’s connection from the school lasted from 1990 until 2003.
One of Epstein’s victims has reportedly told the FBI that she was kept at the lodge when she was just thirteen years old. The lodge has been renamed The Green Lake Lodge. According to a report in The Daily Beast, She is now suing the Epstein estate for $25million.
Katharine Laidlaw, Interlochen’s vice president of strategic communications and engagement, told The Daily Beast that Jeffrey Epstein attended Interlochen’s “National Music Camp” in 1967.
Laidlaw said Epstein had not donated to the school since 2003. “After the administration learned of his conviction, Interlochen discontinued contact with Mr. Epstein and removed all donor recognition with his name,” Laidlaw told The Daily Beast in an email, referring to Epstein’s 2007 plea to soliciting underage girls in Florida.
Sick, sick, sick! It seems that every day another horrible story about Jeffrey Epstein is revealed. Just when you thought that you had heard it all, you hear more.
The Daily Beast also broke the news that Jeffrey Epstein’s secret charity Gratitude America, Ltd. also funded the Hewitt School, an elite private girls’ school in Manhattan, Harvard’s theater troupe, The Hasty Pudding Institute; the Film Society of Lincoln Center; and MET Orchestra Musicians. Records show Epstein’s now-defunct nonprofit, the COUQ Foundation. Epstein also donated to many arts institutions including the New School, the Tribeca Film Institute, and Ballet Florida.
