Ghislaine Maxwell refused to open the front door to the FBI when they raided her $1million home and fled to another room in the house, prosecutors claimed today.

The alleged chief recruiter for Jeffrey Epstein fled to another room and was seen ‘quickly shutting a door behind her’.

The FBI smashed down the door and discovered a mobile phone wrapped in tin foil which prosecutors called a ‘seemingly misguided effort to evade detection’ by law enforcement.

New York prosecutors said this was evidence that Maxwell was ‘skilled at living in hiding’ and should be denied bail.
