Palm Beach resort, once owned by deceased sex and financial offender Jeffrey Epstein and which can only be described as “infamous,” has been put up for sale, reports The Wall Street Journal. The waterfront complex where many of Epstein’s alleged crimes took place was purchased by the financier in 1990 for $ 2.5 million, and now the asking price for the property is just under $ 22 million.
