FBI agents have raided Jeffrey Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean, in a further sign the death of the wealthy financier will not halt scrutiny into his alleged sex trafficking crimes.

Mobile phone footage, broadcast by NBC news, showed agents arriving on Little Saint James, in the US Virgin Islands, on Monday morning.

Two senior law enforcement officials confirmed to NBC the FBI had started searching Epstein’s private island home.

They said the search was being directed by the Epstein taskforce, led by the US attorney’s office for the southern district of New York.
