The prosecution in Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial has submitted dozens of FBI photos from the 2005 raid of his Palm Beach mansion and 2019 raid of the late financier’s Manhattan home.
Among the photos, is a table full of picture frames. In one, Maxwell can be seen with her arms around Epstein’s neck as they kiss. It sat among other photos in his Palm Beach home, including one of the pair meeting the Pope.
The nature of Maxwell and Epstein’s relationship has come under question throughout Maxwell’s trial, with several witnesses testifying that they thought the pair were a couple, while others believed they had a business relationship. Prosecutors have characterized them as being ‘partners in crime.’
Other photos from the New York City raid show Epstein’s infamous massage room, where several of his alleged victims claims they were sexually abused.
The courtroom was shown Friday – Day Seven of Maxwell’s trial – 19 photos of Epstein and Maxwell found on CDs taken from his Manhattan home that show Maxwell and Epstein smiling together, Maxwell rubbing Epstein’s feet, the British socialite in a bikini on a boat and several more never-before-seen photos which will be available to the public later today.

Last week, Maxwell’s accuser under the pseudonym Jane said she traveled to Epstein’s homes about ten times in New York and New Mexico on Epstein’s private plane and described the décor.
‘Art, sculptures. Pictures of famous people, presidents. I thought some of the art was odd – naked women, creepy animals,’ she recalled.
She said the abuse at his New York home would happen in the massage room.
And yesterday a witness under the pseudonym Kate claimed Maxwell invited her to her London townhouse in the affluent area of Belgravia where Jeffrey Epstein was wearing a robe. Maxwell told her Epstein’s massage therapist had canceled and asked if she could fill in.
Kate claimed Epstein took off his robe to reveal his naked body and Maxwell handed her massage oil and closed the door. Kate said that Epstein initiated sexual contact with her.

One of the most striking images shows the financier and Maxwell meeting Pope John Paul II at the Vatican almost 20 years ago.
The pair are believed to have flown to Rome on Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ jet for the meeting, said to have taken place in 2003.
It is the same plane federal prosecutors believe was used by Epstein to shuttle young sex trafficking victims between his sprawling homes in New York, New Mexico, Paris, the US Virgin Islands and Palm Beach.
A source told The Sun: ‘Pictures like this show just how powerful Epstein’s connections were and his ability to open almost any door.
‘He managed to manipulate his way into royal palaces, the White House and the Vatican, all with Maxwell by his side.’

Jeffrey Epstein kept framed naked picture of Ghislaine Maxwell in the bathroom of his Palm Beach mansion under sketch portrait of her: Intimate pictures are among trove of 60 images from police raid revealed at her sex trafficking trial
Jeffrey Epstein kept a framed naked picture of Ghislaine Maxwell in the bathroom of his Palm Beach mansion under a sketch portrait of her, a trove of 60 images from a police raid of his Palm Beach mansion has revealed.
Prosecutors at the Maxwell sex trafficking trial in New York submitted into the evidence the cache of photographs taken when the FBI raided Epstein’s Florida home in 2005.
Photos showed Epstein’s bedroom and bathroom, equipped with a fully-equipped dentist’s chair, and the massage table that accusers claim were used to give him sexual gratification.
Several drawings of naked women can be seen hanging on the walls, as well as a sketch of ‘the lady of the house’ Maxwell and a photograph of her lying nude on a beach.
Also in evidence were photos of Epstein and Maxwell’s desks, where copies of a strict 58-page handbook were kept.
However, there was no sign of sex toys, which Epstein’s housekeeper Juan Alessi testified last week to cleaning after the financer’s massages. Those photos are likely sealed.
This comes as the sixth day of Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial is underway in a Manhattan federal court.

On Friday, Epstein‘s massage table was unfolded in court in a dramatic moment during the trial.
Maxwell, 59, is accused of procuring underage girls for pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. She has pleaded not guilty to all charges
A detective opened the dark green foldable table in front of the jury for them to see for the first time, and one of the police officers who carried out the search confirmed it was from Epstein’s house.
The massage table – along with a ‘Twin Torpedo’ sex toy – were seized from Epstein’s Palm Beach estate. On October 20, 2005, former Palm Beach Police officer Gregory Parkinson obtained the search warrant that would lead to the discovery of the items.
He was quizzed by Assistant US Attorney Maurene Comey on Friday after examining the massage table and sex toy.
Parkinson, in black gloves, took about 30 seconds to look at the table before heading to the witness stand.
Maxwell, who sat about 10 feet away alongside her defense attorneys, reportedly had no reaction.
Once on the stand Parkinson confirmed that it was the same table he seized from Epstein’s mansion nearly two decades ago.
‘It’s from the second floor south bathroom, where the shower was,’ the former cop told the courtroom, adding that he recognized the table by it’s appearance, property number and ‘made in Vista, California,’ sticker.
A detective who was handling the table then folded it back up and propped it in front of the prosecutor’s table, where it stayed until about 5pm, when the trial wrapped up for the day.

Alessi said that he saw ‘pornographic tapes and a black leather costume’ in a basket in Maxwell’s bathroom
Fellow Palm Beach officer Sgt Michael Dawson took the stand after Parkinson and noted that the cops ‘were looking for massage tables,’ that day in 2005. ‘We were looking for massage oils. We were looking for sex toys,’ he added.
Prosecutors then showed the jury a picture of cardboard boxes and a pair of sex toys, dubbed ‘Twin Torpedoes’.
Dawson confirmed that the toys were seized by police from a closet inside the disgraced financier’s house.
Although prosecutors did not clarify why the table and sex toys were brought into evidence, the first accuser to testify at Maxwell’s trial claimed Epstein used sex toys on her and abused her during ‘massages’.
‘He liked to…use vibrators that were different sizes; and even, like, those back massagers that were, you know, painful,’ she said.’
Housekeeper Juan Alessi, 72, took the stand last week and said that part of his job was to clean up after Epstein’s massages – which he said Maxwell scheduled three times per day and which usually took place in his bathroom.
Asked by the prosecutor if he ever found anything ‘unexpected’ after the massages, Alessi said that he found a ‘large dildo,’ describing it as ‘a huge man’s penis with two heads.’
Alessi said that he put gloves on and ‘ran it under the water and put the dildo in Ms. Maxwell’s closet in (her) bathroom’ inside of a wicker basket.
Alessi said that he saw ‘pornographic tapes and a black leather costume’ in the same basket.
He said that three or four other times he found two other sex toys: one that looked ‘like a pillow’ and another that looked like an ‘arm’ which had a rubber vibrating part at the end. He put those items in Epstein’s dresser.
Alessi testifies, ‘I was supposed to be blind, deaf, to say nothing.’
To ‘never disclose’ Maxwell and Epstein’s ‘whereabouts or activities,’ he added.
