“After Epstein’s arrest, his attorneys set up a company (DKI LLC) to pay salaries and other overhead. Lesley considered herself to be an employee of Epstein until she resigned in 2019 but was simply being paid by the company set up by Indyke at Epstein’s direction or knowledge,” the spokesman added.
“They were like his wing men…they would get in the car and you could see if they’d had a bad day or not with Jeffrey,
The two main pilots were really nice guys and they were very jovial. But if they got in the car, you could tell if something was wrong
They didn’t want to lose their jobs, they didn’t want to upset him because of what he can do, (the pilots) never talked about passengers…he must’ve had them on a tight leash when it came to that type of thing.”
His daughter, Taylor Visoski, was married in a lavish ceremony at the ranch in 2017. The bride had photographs taken around the ranch.
Larry Visoski has a second daughter, Brooke, who became engaged at the ranch in July 2021.
So too has the myth making, in particular the ownership of Epstein’s black book.

His family heritage includes a Standard Oil descendent, a Palm Beach town mayor, a sugar baron, and a house which belonged to a Vanderbilt.
The unusual path of this socialite includes a step-father who was one of Epstein’s many lawyers.
Story’s mother, Elizabeth, was married to the high-profile law counsel, William Atterbury III, a Pennsylvania Railroad heir. His aunt, Nicole Fanjul, is married to one of the richest men in Florida, the sugar baron, Alex Fanjul.
His step-grandfather William Evarts Benjamin II, was a developer who became mayor of Manalapan.
According to The Palm Beach Post, Benjamin bought and lived in a house previously occupied by heiress Consuelo VanderbiltBalsan.
Despite all this apparent privilege, Story Cowles ends up working for years for Epstein.
Flight logs reveal he flew to The Bahamas on the Epstein jet. As well, he also lived with Kellen, a listed Epstein conconspirator, in the model apartments in New York.
As well, he also lived in a home in Soho, which was owned by Kellen’s husband Brian Vickers.
Around the time he met Epstein in 2006, Story Cowles was a party promoter for some of the swankiest events in Palm Beach.
In 2006, he graduated with an associate’s degree in art studies from Florida State University.
About 10 years later, he graduated from Lynn University with a Master of Business Administration. He has a Bachelor of Business from the same institution.
Yet his name was mentioned in a deposition made by one of Epstein’s pilots in Epstein v Edwards 2011 (see below).
Authorities believe the now-dead pedophile was using Cowles to serve as his emissary.
Prison records obtained by DailyMail.com showed he visited Epstein almost every single day prior to his being granted work release.
(He) would arrive in the morning on most days, stay for a few hours and then leave around lunch time. He would then return a second time and leave again around 7pm, generally logging six or seven hours in jail each day as a result, despite he himself having committed no crime. Epstein tried to hide his association with Cowles by having him sign in as a paralegal, as only lawyers and a doctor were among the 20 approved visitors at the jail.
According to CNBC: “No one visited Epstein more than Story Cowles, who was reportedly his personal assistant.Cowles visited Epstein nearly 130 times.”
Story Cowles also gave a deposition in the 2008 Jane Doe v Epstein case.
It was argued through lawyers that much of what he discussed with Epstein was subject to attorney client privilege.
Except in this case, Story was not a lawyer nor was he a paralegal, despite claiming he was on prison visitor logs.
One of Epstein’s household staff told the court in 2008, Story was present during a visit to Epstein’s Palm Beach house by the disgraced French model agent, Jean-Luc Brunel. The Frenchman is now awaiting trial in Paris on sex abuse charges.
According to the court transcript (below), Epstein coconspirators Nadia Marcenko and Sarah Kellen were also present.
Story Cowles possesses the metaphorical keys to the Epstein kingdom but up until now he’s been remaining silent.
When we contacted him at home a few days ago in North Carolina, where he works in finance, he was busy and unable to speak.
Legal argument covered the possibility of Story Cowles having knowledge about Epstein sending money to the Channel Islands and Israel.
