Aside from Maxwell and the Duke of York, authorities are looking at two other Brits as part of their probe, The Daily Beast has learned.
According to a 2019 report in The Telegraph, prosecutors wanted to speak to Maxwell’s former personal assistant Emmy Tayler, who was named in a batch of unsealed court records in Giuffre’s defamation suit against Maxwell.
Clare Hazell, another Brit who worked for Epstein in the 1990s, was also someone investigators wanted to contact, people with knowledge of the probe told The Daily Beast. The interior designer now goes by the Countess of Iveagh, after she married Edward Guinness of the brewing company dynasty in 2001. (She was listed as Clare Hazell-Iveagh in Epstein’s infamous Little Black Book.)
It’s unclear if the feds have interviewed other boldfaced names in Epstein’s orbit, or the co-conspirators who secured immunity in Epstein’s shady 2008 plea deal, which was secretly brokered by federal prosecutors in Miami.
