John Arwood, owner of Arwood Waste & Demolition in Jacksonville, does demolition work nationwide and says he could clear the buildings on the island in a couple of days.

The island – officially known as Little St. James – has become notorious for the sexcapades of Epstein, who allegedly killed himself in 2019 while he was on suicide watch. The official story was that his two guards fell asleep and two cameras in his cell malfunctioned  – stories so implausible that they have spawned countless jokes and memes on Facebook.

Epstein and Maxwell

Arwood said his 22-year-old daughter was on vacation a month ago in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Epstein’s private island is located, and she took a tourist boat that sailed by the island where Epstein allegedly combined wealthy celebrities and politicians with under-age girls.  She was so disturbed by the island and what took place there that she asked her dad to find a way to take it down since he was in the demolition business.

Several women have claimed they were “sex slaves” and one has accused Prince Andrew of Britain as being one of those involved.

The visitors were ferried to the island on a jet nicknamed the Lolita Express. Many famous names have been found in the flight logs.

Epstein was a convicted sex offender who died in a jail cell. Maxwell has been on trial for procuring and sexual trafficking. 

In addition to the flight logs that have the rich and famous perspiring, Epstein is believed to have had in his possession videos taken surreptitiously on the island that he intended to use for blackmail purposes.

About 50 girls claimed to have been victims of Epstein at his 70 acre island, which he purchased in 1998 for nearly $8 million. 

The island has a main house, three guest cottages, a caretaker’s cottage, a helipad and a dock. The creepiest building is a domed, octagonal building. No one seems to know its use.

Arwood told Eye on Jacksonville that demolishing the buildings on “Orgy Island” would be a fitting end and he would be glad to do it.  His daughter would be thrilled if he could make it happen and he’s on a mission now to see it through.

“Why would anyone want it still standing?” he asked.

Good question.
