rince Andrew’s accuser Virginia Roberts said she is “disappointed” a French fashion agent and friend of disgraced paedophile Jeffrey Epstein has been found dead in his prison cell.

Jean-Luc Brunel, 76, was in detention awaiting a trial on charges of rape of a minor and sexual harassment.

Authorities in Paris confirmed that Brunel was found hanging in his cell in La Santé in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Ms Roberts, also known as Giuffre, said on Twitter: “The suicide of Jean-Luc Brunel, who abused me and countless girls and young women, ends another chapter.

“I’m disappointed that I wasn’t able to face him in a final trial to hold him accountable, but gratified that I was able to testify in person last year to keep him in prison.”

It is not clear whether Brunel was sharing a cell with other inmates or if there was CCTV footage inside.

An investigation has been launched into the cause of his death.

“A night patrol found his lifeless body at about 1am,” said an investigating source.

“A judicial enquiry has been launched, and early evidence points to suicide.”

Brunel was arrested in December 2020 at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport while trying to board a plane to Senegal

He was then indicted after two days of interviews by an examining magistrate and specialist police from an anti-paedophilia unit.

Brunel had been suspected of being part of a global sex trafficking ring organised by Jeffrey Epstein.

However, he denied involvement “directly or indirectly” in any of Epstein’s offences in a statement issued in 2015.
