According to Maxwell’s lawyers, her cellmate allegedly told three other prisoners that she was offered money to kill Maxwell and that she intended to strangle her to death. The cellmate has since been moved to an entirely different section of the prison. That solves nothing because there are many others who are willing to do the job for money and most of them will be smart enough to keep it to themselves. Others would be willing to do the job just for “street cred.”
Maxwell’s lawyers alleged in a court filing:
“One of the female inmates in Ms. Maxwell’s housing unit told at least three other inmates that she had been offered money to murder Ms. Maxwell and that she planned to strangle her in her sleep.”
“This incident reflects the brutal reality that there are numerous prison inmates who would not hesitate to kill Ms. Maxwell — whether for money, fame, or simple ‘street cred.’”
There has been no word on who was offering the money, but it was probably done with at least two middle operators. There are probably more than a few acquaintances of Epstein, who would like Maxwell to buy the farm. She must have a lot of names of patrons of the Lolita Express and Orgy Island. She could write a tell-all book in the future, especially if she is convinced that she will never get out of prison. That alone would provide a strong motive for wanting her dead.
Maxwell, a British socialite, was convicted in December for sex trafficking a 14-year-old girl during her time as a close associate of infamous billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. Her July 2020 arrest came years after investigations and litigation against Epstein, who allegedly operated an underage sex trafficking ring and raped dozens of underage girls.
In their sentencing brief, Maxwell’s lawyers argued she should receive a lighter sentence for her convictions based on the alleged death threat and multiple other grounds, including her “difficult, traumatic childhood.”
“Ghislaine Maxwell is not an heiress, villain, or vapid socialite. She has worked hard her entire life. She has energy, drive, commitment, a strong work ethic, and desire to do good in the world,” her lawyers wrote.
