It has just been reported that Jeffrey Epstein's infamous palm beach mansion, which has been the subject of much vandalism as of late, is set to be demolished.
Here's what we know so far...
This has been a long time coming.Details for the plans of the notorious home, where countless girls were allegedly abused, have been leaked today.
It seems that the new owner wants no further ties to the previous homeowner...And he has taken drastic measures to make that happen.
But where did it all begin?Jeffrey Epstein, born in New York City in 1953, made a name for himself with elite investment bank Bear Stearns, before founding his own investment firm.
But, these days, he's known for more sinister reasons.Epstein was first convicted for a range of sex crimes in 2005, when he pleaded guilty to molesting an underage girl.
Epstein's crimes were far-reaching and varied.But, by 2008, he has been convicted for running an underage prostitution ring connected to a number of high powered individuals. Epstein served just thirteen months for this conviction.
But this wasn't the end of his legal troubles.

Many were looking forward to justice being served.

And many believed his conviction could uncover other high profile and wealthy sex offenders.

The Netflix docu-series, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, that was released earlier this year, catapulted the whole thing into the spotlight.
Many huge names were yet again thrown under the bus...And the heat was seriously turned up on Epstein's former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, who was the one who allegedly trafficked and groomed most of the young girls who were abused by the predator.
So, understandably, people were delighted when the news broke of her arrest in July.
via: Getty ImagesIt was reported that Maxwell had finally been arrested by the FBI in New Hampshire at around 8:30 am on the 6th of July.
Maxwell was formally charged with 6 counts:

She was also charged for repeatedly lying about her involvement in the trafficking ring during a 2016 deposition.
via: NetflixThis is a huge development in the fight for justice and, if found guilty, Maxwell could be facing thirty-five-years behind bars.
But it didn't take long for Maxwell to plead as not guilty.
via: NetflixAt a hearing via video link, the disgraced socialite remained valiant in her innocence by pleading not guilty. However, she was still denied bail as US federal prosecutors said that she is an "extreme" flight risk and should remain in custody, as per the BBC.
Other people involved with Epstein included political figures such as Bill Clinton...
