The house named after Jeffrey Epstein: What happened in Michigan?
Once again the notorious Jeffrey Epstein is making headlines with his infamous sex-trafficking scandal. From London to Arizona, Epstein trolled the streets for helpless victims whom he led astray & trapped via his powerful connections. Unlike most monsters who hide themselves under scary masks, Epstein hid himself behind his wealth.
Epstein has connections to many institutions, including the Interlochen Center for the Arts, the famed fine-arts boarding school for children in Michigan. In exchange for donations and hosting fundraisers at his New York mansion, the school allowed Epstein to build The Jeffrey Epstein Scholarship Lodge.
Due to a series of sex-trafficking accusations that occurred in the Jeffrey Epstein Scholarship Lodge, the building has been renamed The Green Lake Lodge. What exactly do these accusations entail?
Lodge of filth
The Jeffrey Epstein Scholarship Lodge was featured in a 1995 story in Log Home Living Magazine, described as a barrier-free, disabled-accessible structure built “to generate revenue for the camp scholarship fund.”
A victim is suing Jeffrey Epstein’s estate for $22 million for being abused at the Jeffrey Epstein Scholarship Lodge. The victim says she was recruited to the school in 1994 when she was thirteen years old and was abused by Epstein himself for four years. However, Melissa Solomon, another former Interlochen student, says she was fourteen when she met Epstein and spent six years with him – but was not abused.
Although Solomon was not abused, she said her relationship with Epstein came to an end when she refused to recruit girls from Juilliard School in New York and declined a meeting with Prince Andrew.
Something smells fishy
Students from Interlochen have reported abuse by Mr. Epstein at the Jeffrey Epstein Scholarship Lodge; the institution released a statement saying, “We have no record of any complaint raised against Mr. Epstein at Interlochen.” The school added that “policies would not have permitted Mr. Epstein any unsupervised access to students”.
The Interlochen Center for the Arts also claimed to have stopped communication with Epstein and removed his name from “all donor recognition” after learning of his pedophilia conviction. Interlochen Centre for the Arts was quick to remove records of affiliation with Epstein and reported they had no idea what was going on behind closed doors.
Money can cover a multitude of sins, and donors often get away with improprieties which can be overlooked as a result of their supposed generosity. As the story develops, we’ll find out more about how Epstein appears to have used Interlochen as another “grooming” source for underage girls to abuse.
