Model Ruslana Korshunova who died by suicide at the age 20 in 2008 had previously been one of the teen girls flown to Jeffrey Epstein’s private island, newly unsealed court documents reveal. The deceased pedophile’s flight logs show that Ruslana was one of the passengers on Boeing 727 which allegedly used to traffic victims and was famously called the Lolita Express. Ruslana had featured in ads for Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Vera Wang, and Nina Ricci perfume.
Ruslana's connection to Jeffrey Epstein
Ruslana, who was 18 at that time, traveled with Epstein and three staffers, including his bodyguard Igor Zinoviev, personal chef Lance Calloway and longtime assistant Sarah Kellen. It still remains unclear as to what happened when they landed on the infamous island in Little St. James. For the unversed, Jeffrey has been accused of holding underage sex parties there for his high-profile friends.
Years after her tragic demise, Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre’s attorney emailed her asking whether she knew Ruslana. “I think it’s a long shot you would recognize her, but read the article I attached and then look at the pictures and see if you recognize her,” attorney Brad Edwards wrote in the 2011 email, attaching a link to a Newsweek report.
Ruslana’s mother spoke to The Post in 2008 and said, “She’s had her ups and downs but never anything that would lead to suicide. This is completely unexpected. She was working, and everything seemed to be going fine.”
Actors embroiled in Jeffrey Epstein scandal
Unsealed court documents from the civil lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell were recently made public, and they provide insight into Jeffrey Epstein's vast network of relations. Celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Michael Jackson, Naomi Campbell, Bruce Willis, Cameron Diaz, Kevin Spacey, and George Lucas are among the well-known names on the list.
It's crucial to remember that these names are included without any indication of wrongdoing on their part.
