BREAKING: Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested In Connection With Jeffrey Epstein

Jeffrey Epstein's close friend Ghislaine Maxwell has been arrested, according to reports.

The socialite, who was accused of helping billionaire paedophile Epstein traffic underage girls, is said to have been apprehended in New Hampshire on Thursday and is due in court later today.

Epstein died in jail last year while awaiting trial, cheating his many victims of the justice they deserved.

According to local news reports, two law enforcement sources confirmed the 58-year-old heiress - who has not been seen in public since Epstein's arrest last summer - had been arrested by the FBI in New Hampshire and is expected in court later today.

The FBI and the US Attorney's Office in Manhattan have so far refused to confirm the news.

Epstein was first investigated by police in Palm Beach, Florida, back in 2005, after the concerned parents of one 14-year-old girl accused him of sexually abusing her.

He pleaded guilty in 2008, and was convicted of procuring an underage girl for prostitution and of soliciting a prostitute.

But he wielded power to secure a secret deal, avoiding a potential life sentence. He was released in 2009 but continued to abuse women.

Epstein committed suicide in August last year from prison, at the age of 66.
