Epstein Police Report

FEBRUARY 3--One of the women listed in wealthy pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s “black book” as a massage provider at his Palm Beach mansion last year ran unsuccessfully for Congress and once accompanied a prominent U.S. senator to a White House state dinner, records show.

But Gwendolyn Beck told TSG she has no idea why her name and phone numbers appear in a list that includes contact information for masseuses and some of Epstein’s underage female victims, who performed naked massages for the convicted sex offender whose acquaintances have included business titans, elected officials, Nobel laureates, and royalty like Britain's Prince Andrew.

Beck’s name appears in a section of Epstein’s “black book” that is headlined “Massage – Florida” and contains phone numbers for dozens of women, almost all of whom resided in the Palm Beach area. Some entries include brief descriptions like “red head,” “brunette,” “gymnast,” and “gypsy’s girl.”

The book was included as an exhibit to a court filing in a civil suit brought against the 61-year-old Epstein by two of his minor victims, who, like most girls, were paid about $200 to disrobe and massage him while he simultaneously masturbated himself and molested them. 

Other sections of the book include the names of female massage providers in Paris, the United Kingdom, and the Virgin Islands. The volume’s 181 pages contain contact information for billionaires (Bronfman, Stern, Bloomberg, Koch, Wexner, Zuckerman, Kravis, Rockefeller), multimillionaires (Trump), celebrities, journalists, and socialites.  Some of the individuals listed appear to primarily be friends of Epstein’s ex-girlfriend/longtime sidekick Ghislaine Maxwell, 53, who has been accused of wrangling underage massage talent for the shadowy investor.

In a TSG interview, Beck said that she met Epstein years ago through “mutual friends” at Credit Suisse, where she worked on the firm’s New York bond trading floor until the mid-1990s. Beck said that she subsequently moved to Morgan Stanley, where she managed about $65 million of Epstein’s money from her office in West Palm Beach, a few miles from the financier’s waterfront home (seen below).

Beck, who lived in a modest West Palm Beach home that she bought for $280,000 in 2002, is not listed anywhere else in the “black book,” which includes a section of Epstein's “Finance” contacts. Beck said she was unaware of the existence of the “black book” and asked a reporter whether it had been widely circulated. A heavily redacted version of the book was posted online last month by the gossip site Gawker.

The 56-year-old Beck said that she was an occasional visitor to Epstein’s El Brillo Way residence and “never saw anything that was questionable.” She recalled getting “a couple of massages” at Epstein’s home from a masseuse, but said that she had never given massages at the residence or saw underage girls there.

Beck, who is pictured above accompanying Senator Robert Menendez to a 2010 White House state dinner, made a long-shot bid last year for Congress from Virginia’s 8th District. Running as an independent, Beck finished a distant third in the general election with 2.7 percent of the vote.

Since news of Epstein’s debauched, criminal ways first surfaced in 2006, most politicians have returned the convicted felon's contributions and, like Bill Clinton, have sought to distance themselves from the reported billionaire, whose principal residence is his private Caribbean island, according to sex offender registries.

Beck, though, had no such problems soliciting money from Epstein. The businessman gave a maximum $2600 donation to her congressional campaign committee, and he provided $5000 apiece to two political action committees Beck controls. Epstein’s $12,600 in donations last year amounted to more than 28 percent of the total funds Beck raised via her three committees.

Beck, who said she now works as a financial advisor, co-authored “Flirting With Finance,” a 2008 book that she described as a “non-fiction ‘how-to’ financial guide which combines romance and finance to explain financial concepts in the perspective of real life scenarios.” According to her bio, she is working on a follow-up titled “Bonds Have More Fun.”

Asked about Epstein, Beck recently said that he “got involved in very bad behaviors which he’s sought therapy for and paid his time in jail.” Although “flawed,” Epstein “can be a great asset to our nation because he understands finance on a level most people can’t comprehend,” she added.
