The sister of a victim of Jeffrey Epstein has accused Ghislaine Maxwell of luring her into his trap.

Skye Patrick, who died of an overdose aged 29, was “recruited” by the socialite, her twin Selby alleges.

She added: “All those who helped Epstein should be locked up.”

Following Epstein’s apparent jail cell suicide, Selby wants Maxwell brought before a court to answer accusations that she lured her sibling into the billionaire’s clutches.

Selby told how Skye was so unnerved by Epstein’s abuse that she once said: “He scared the life out of me.”

Mum-of-two Selby, who adopted Skye’s young son after her death in 2017, admits she could not know where her sister’s life would have led had she never met Epstein – but insists he helped seal her fate.

She said: “It was the money. She kept going back to his house, but all the cash did was provide Skye with cash for drink and then drugs. It was like he was handing her a death sentence.”

Bank supervisor Selby is in no doubt who she holds responsible for how Skye ended up with Epstein – and now hopes Maxwell is the one who is scared.

Her words come as Epstein’s accuser, Jennifer Araoz, yesterday sued his estate after he was found dead in his New York cell amid stories of his links to Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew.

Araoz is also suing socialite Maxwell, 57, daughter of the late disgraced former Mirror publisher Robert Maxwell, as part of the first wave of civil actions under America’s new Child Victims Act.

Araoz claims she was only 14 when she was ensnared by a “recruiter” and raped by Epstein in his New York mansion.

Selby said: “It was Ghislaine, or Gillian as the girls knew her, who recruited Skye’s friends into his world. One wanted to be a model, and Ghislaine made her believe they’d launch her to stardom if she did as she was told. It was the girl who took Skye to Epstein’s house, saying they’d just be hanging out at a playboy’s mansion.

“The life was hard to resist. Who wouldn’t want to rub shoulders with royalty and live like a princess as Ghislaine did?”

She added: “Skye always said Ghislaine was so sophisticated. You’d never think as a woman she was gonna hurt a young girl, but she was the one lowering them into the trap.”

After Epstein’s apparent suicide on Saturday, in jail on child sex-trafficking charges, US Attorney General William Barr said his alleged co-conspirators “should not rest easy” and that they would now be the focus of the criminal investigation.

Maxwell has previously been named as the “madam” allegedly procuring girls for her pal.

Epstein’s “sex slave” Virginia Giuffre said on oath in a 2015 court case that Maxwell “recruited” her for sex aged 15 when she worked at Donald Trump’s country club in Palm Beach, Florida. In court papers, Virginia said: “Maxwell’s role was as the ‘madam’. She got me to trust her and Epstein. It turned out Maxwell was all about sex all the time.”

Maxwell, who introduced Prince Andrew to Epstein, has never been arrested for any offence relating to the Epstein claims.

She has always strenuously denied claims she recruited underage girls for him. It has been said she has not been seen publicly for months, with speculation that she is staying with a member of her family.

Selby told the Mirror that Skye was just 16 when she first went to the Wall Street financier’s Florida home.

He offered her a massage and $300 to take off her top. He then told her to take off her bra then tried to rip it off.

Selby, 32, said whenever Skye or her pals visited Epstein’s home, Maxwell was there “trying to tell the girls what to do and making promises”.

 Skye and a friend who also visited the house later got $50,000 settlements from Epstein.

Jeffrey Epstein death

Skye got hooked on heroin and was found dead in a motel in 2017, weeks before her 30th birthday, leaving son Jayden, five. Selby said: “Between Epstein and Ghislaine they created a life for her from which she could find no way back.

“Epstein has robbed all the victims of justice by taking the easy way out, but there are still those who helped him. They should be locked up and the key thrown away.”

Prince Andrew was accused in documents filed with a US court in 2015 in of being “lent” Epstein’s “sex slave” Virginia when she was 17. The manuscript was among 2,000 legal documents released on Friday just hours before Epstein’s death.

A second woman Joanna Sjoberg also testified Andrew committed a “sexual act” with her at Epstein’s New York home when she was 21. All the allegations about Andrew were struck from the court record by the judge.

At the time, Buckingham Palace said: “It is emphatically denied the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts. Any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation.”

After the recent release of papers it said: “This relates to proceedings in the US, to which the Duke of York is not a party. Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue.”
