After Brunel was found dead, Ghislaine Maxwell's family is afraid for her safety, but they don't know how.
People in the family of model agent Jean-Luc Brunel say they're afraid for her safety after he was found dead in his prison cell on Saturday.
Maxwell, who was convicted of sex trafficking last year, is said to have introduced Brunel to billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his Manhattan prison cell in August 2019.
When Ian Maxwell, a brother of Ghislaine's, told The Post that his sister had died, he said it was very shocking. Another person died by hanging in a high-security prison, this time by the way. In my mind, I'm in a state of total shock and bewilderment.
When Maxwell spoke from London, he said that the family "worries for her safety" at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where she is being held now.
In December, Maxwell was found guilty of sexual abuse. She was put in a room at the prison with a psychiatrist and two other people, her brother says.
He thought she might kill herself, so he told her to get out of bed and go to the bathroom every 15 minutes. A complete violation of prisoner and human rights is what Ian Maxwell said about what he had done.
She is not suicidal, Maxwell said. He said it was "ironic" that Epstein and Brunel didn't have suicide watches in prison, even though they both died by apparent suicide. He was taken off suicide watch a few days before he died in August of 2019.
Ghislaine Maxwell, 60, asked for a retrial last month after a juror in the case told the media that he used his own experience of being sexually abused to get his peers on the jury to find Maxwell guilty.
Maxwell's lawyer, Bobbi Wertheim, didn't say anything on Saturday.
People who ran Karin Models in Paris, then formed an agency with Epstein, were in charge of getting girls and young women for Epstein.
In his cell at La Sante prison, he was found dead around 1:30 a.m. local time, the prosecutor's office in Paris told CNN.
There was no security breach at the prison, and an investigation into the cause of death has begun.
