Now that Jeffrey Epstein is dead, the FBI is beginning to investigate people linked to the U.S. financier, who committed suicide while awaiting a trial on sex trafficking charges, according to a new report.

One of those is British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

The probe is in its early stages as the FBI follows up on leads received from women who said they were victimized by Epstein, law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation told Reuters.

In a civil lawsuit, one of Epstein’s alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre, accused Maxwell of recruiting her into Epstein’s web, where she says she was forced to have sex with Epstein and his friends.

Since Epstein’s death, Maxwell has been in hiding. She previously dated Epstein, whom she met in the early 1990s.

The sources did not reveal the other “people who facilitated” the abuse.

Jonathan Lacey knows a thing or two about mass shootings.

The retired FBI agent spent the latter part of his career studying active shooters. At the FBI’s Buffalo office, he served as a crisis manager and active shooter coordinator, training law enforcement and community groups to respond to mass shootings.

Now he operates Security and Training Solutions, a Buffalo-based firm that teaches businesses, community groups and even families how to prepare for an active shooting.

“The training needs to be delivered in a way that is realistic and empowers individuals, but does not traumatize them,” he told The Buffalo News.

The goal is to help people create a comprehensive prevention policy at a time when mass shootings have become all too common in the U.S.
