For someone accused of being part of an alleged child sex crime syndicate, Sarah Kellen Vickers sure doesn’t back away from having her face on NASCAR videos.
Referred to as Ghislaine Maxwell’s lieutenant, Sarah was a constant force at Epstein’s Palm Beach home. She was part administrator, part recruiter and part abuser, according to court documents. Police were ready to arrest her in 2005 before the Epstein immunity deal.
She is here in 2015 by husband Brian’s side in an intensive care unit, following cardiac surgery due to a hole in his heart.
When he made it back to NASCAR, she was by his side again.
They said Maxwell has shown a skilled ability to hide. When FBI agents went to arrest Maxwell at a mansion in New Hampshire on July 3, instead of obeying the agent’s order to open the door, Maxwell fled to another room and closed the door behind her, according to the court filing. After the FBI breached the door they found Maxwell inside and arrested her.
“As the agents conducted a security sweep of the house, they also noticed a cell phone wrapped in tin foil on top of a desk, a seemingly misguided effort to evade detection, not by the press or public, which of course would have no ability to trace her phone or intercept her communications, but by law enforcement,” prosecutors wrote.

Long-sealed grand jury records that could reveal whether Palm Beach prosecutors sabotaged their own case against child molester Jeffrey Epstein will likely remain hidden from the public, at least for now, a county judge signaled Wednesday.
The county’s chief judge, Krista Marx, appeared poised to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the Palm Beach Post that sought to open the documents, which have been sealed since 2006, but had not issued a decision from the bench following a hearing at the Palm Beach County Courthouse Wednesday morning.
Grand jury testimony and evidence is kept secret in Florida and can only be opened if it can be shown that the proceedings were tainted by wrongdoing.
