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 Vanderbilt Balsan:

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.

He also lived with Sarah Kellen, a listed Epstein conconspirator, in the model apartments in New York.

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.

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 Story Cowles to serve as his emissary.

Prison records obtained by 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.

So what does the Palm Beach socialite know about the Jeffrey Epstein criminal conspiracy? A lot, according to visitor logs from the dead pervert’s prison records.

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 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 during Jane Doe v Epstein 2008 covered the possibility of Story having knowledge about Epstein sending money to the Channel Islands and Israel.

Story Cowles has a long and wealthy list of associates, according to this tweet thread, which is excellent reading.

He also lived in a home with Kellen in New York City, which was owned by an Epstein relative. My guess is the brother Mark.

In 2009, he  attended a Young Friends of the American Red Cross party at Trump’s golf resort in Florida.


Plus he’s out and about living his best life, according to his Facebook profile.

Epstein Coconspirator Sarah Kellen – a Cult Victim?

Sarah Kellen Ghislaine Maxwell’s alleged lieutenant, known also as Sara Kensington, claims she was abused by Jeffrey Epstein, and may also be stating she’s a victim of cult abuse.

In a few short years, Sarah Kellen went from being a teen bride to flying in Jeffrey Epstein’s jet with Bill Clinton.

We found new information concerning the woman described as an Epstein coconspirator. It came to us via her husband’s website.

See Sarah Kellen’s 2010 deposition in the video below:

Epstein’s alleged Palm Beach boss, married former NASCAR driver Brian Vickers under the name of her Sara Kensington alias in 2013.

The NASCAR champion’s website was updated recently to include charities he works with in partnership with Sarah Kellen. The organisations he now supports have an overall justice theme.

Who is Sarah Kellen?

One is an anti-cult information group, Foundation Against Cult Threats. In the newly updated section of Mr Vickers’ website, he has also added FACT, The Sunny Centre and APJ to the list of organisations he supports.

According to the former NASCAR driver: “I love to work with charities that are close to my heart.

Justice and prison reform are very important to my wife and I. We have both been wrongfully accused of things in our personal and professional life before, so this always resonated for us.

Even outside of the justice system, in general, I would say that society’s shift towards a mentality of “guilty until proven innocent” is wrong and very dangerous. You see this sometimes inside the justice system but the justice system also has other systemic problems.”

Sarah Kellen 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 and another Coconspirator, Haley Robson, while the Epstein immunity deal was being drafted behind the scenes.

Some of the allegations against Kellen are as recent as 2008. The following are from a civil suit against billionaire Leon Black:

Sarah’s parents spoke to The Sun about their daughter. They said she had been very innocent. Due to her strict church upbringing, possibly.

But she went to a mainstream high school. Her father, Thomas Kellen said she had been cast out of the community for nude modeling.

And that was the life Sarah had chosen to live. According to her family, did naked work in fashion catalogs while also art modeling

They haven’t seen Sarah Kellen for years because the Jehovah’s witness requires that once someone’s cast out by elders of the community, families can’t see them.

Although they recently saw Sarah Kellen and they met Brian Vickers for the first time.

What do we know about Sarah Kellen’s background as Jehovah’s witness child bride?

Her mother Mary Kellen in The Sun: “I’m not a psychologist or a psychiatrist, but I can see she was maneuvered or brainwashed. I just hope someone doesn’t go and kill her.”

“There are a lot of prominent, powerful people out there that don’t want anything said.”

Sara Kensington

Sarah Kellen took the job working with Jefrrey Epstein when she was aged about 22.

The family’s story is she met someone who worked for Epstein, whose her boyfriend was sick of her traveling back and forth. So Sarah got the job.

Mr Thomas Kellen said: “we’re sticking up for her if that’s what you want to call it because we still feel, we know her better than anyone.”

Is Sarah Kellen claiming she was brainwashed? That she came across two Cults?

The families against cult teachings and abuses group has a section on their website about the Jehovah’s witness church.
