Epstein Victim Who Testified Against Ghislaine Maxwell Found DEAD

A victim of convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein was found dead in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Carolyn Adriano, a victim of Epstein and who was the key witness who testified in Epstein’s accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell ‘s trial was found dead by an accidental overdose.

Adriano’s death comes at a bizarre time considering recently she planned to move to North Carolina to start a new life with her husband.

The couple even bought a house and planned to start a small farm.

The Daily Beast reported Palm Beach Police spokesperson Mike Jachles shared “that the investigation was concluding and that Carolyn died of an accidental overdose.

Here’s what The Daily Beast reported:

Carolyn Andriano, a victim of sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein whose testimony was crucial to putting away his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell, has died.

There was no obituary or funeral service after she died earlier this year, and police in West Palm Beach, Florida, opened an investigation into her death. After The Daily Beast reached out for comment, police spokesman Mike Jachles told us that the investigation was concluding and that Carolyn died of an accidental overdose.

The 36-year-old mother-of-five had planned to start a new chapter in North Carolina, at a new house with a fireplace and half-acre lot with a chicken coop. Carolyn and her husband, John Pitts, had purchased the property just weeks before she was found unresponsive in a West Palm Beach hotel room on May 23.

Before her death, “she was ecstatic,” Carolyn’s mother, Dorothy Groenert, told The Daily Beast. “She was all set up for a whole new lifestyle.”

Groenert says Carolyn’s death came as a shock because she was working on building a new life and texted her recently about being free of drugs and alcohol.

The way Groenert sees it, some things about her daughter’s overdose don’t make sense, and she wants cops to investigate further.

Jachles, however, said that Carolyn’s case would officially be closed this week. Officers on the scene took a statement from Pitts, who told them that Carolyn had been using drugs, and Carolyn’s brother, who rushed to the hotel after Pitts texted Groenert that Carolyn had died. Pitts tried to administer CPR and “was given directions over the phone with 911,” Jachles said.

Per the Messenger:

Carolyn Andriano, the victim of Jeffrey Epstein who testified against Ghislaine Maxwell, died last may. She was 36.

Andriano, a mother of 5, was found unresponsive in a hotel room in West Palm Beach, Florida. Authorities opened an investigation on her death and concluded that she died of an accidental overdose.

In 2021, Andriano provided bombshell testimony against Ghislaine Maxwell, claiming that Epstein had sexually abused her three times. In her testimony, Adriano claimed that Maxwell would schedule the meetings. The sexual abuse stopped when Adriano turned 18 and was deemed “too old” for Epstein.

During cross examination, Maxwell’s attorney got Andriano to admit that she had once been addicted to “pain pills and cocaine,” and that she did the drugs to “block out” the sexual abuse at the hands of Epstein.
