Three more women who say they were sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein sued the wealthy financier's estate Tuesday, bringing the total number of lawsuits to at least five.
All three women described similar patterns of being brought to Epstein's home to perform massages and then forced to engage in repeated and unwanted sex acts.
Two of the women say they met Epstein when they were 17, while a third said she met him when she was 20.
All said the abuse continued after Epstein reached a deal with Florida federal prosecutors in 2007, that was criticized as too lenient.
Epstein was arrested again in July and had pleaded not guilty to federal charges of sex trafficking - He died earlier this month while in federal custody.
An autopsy report released Friday concluded he hanged himself.
Just two days before, Epstein had signed a will showing he was worth more than half a billion dollars, according to a copy of the document seen by Reuters.
It showed the 66-year-old left behind $56 million dollars in cash, $18 million in planes, cars and boats.
Plus, vast private equity investments and several high-end properties, including mansions in New York, New Mexico and Palm Beach.
