Jeffrey Epstein is not a victim, even in death.

The real victims remain the dozens of young women — many of them teenagers — that Epstein lured to his homes for sexual favors under the guise of giving him “massages.” A sad fact is, no one truly knows how many girls he scarred with his depravity.

But that Epstein is now dead after apparently committing suicide on Saturday while in a federal jail cell does not change this fact: There are still questions that need to be answered in order for his victims to obtain the justice they so rightly deserve.

“I am angry Jeffrey Epstein won’t have to face his survivors of his abuse in court,” Jennifer Araoz told the New York Daily News. “We have to live with the scars of his actions for the rest of our lives, while he will never face the consequences of the crime he committed, the pain and trauma he caused so many people.”

For Araoz and the others, the investigations must go on.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr, who was appalled by Epstein’s reported suicide while jailed at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, has promised an investigation into “serious irregularities.” Good. Because something went terribly wrong to allow a suicide by an inmate who had just two weeks prior reportedly tried to harm himself.

But that’s only the latest question to be answered in this whole sordid tale.

For example, how did the wealthy, politically connected financier manage to perpetrate one of the most heinous sexual crimes in modern Palm Beach County history with so many people allegedly knowing about it?

How did Epstein, despite federal prosecutors recommending otherwise, manage to get his so-called “sweetheart deal” from then-U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta that allowed Epstein to plead guilty to two lesser state prostitution charges?

And why was Epstein, an admitted sex offender, allowed to violate Sheriff Ric Bradshaw’s own policies when it came to his work release? (Freedoms that allegedly allowed Epstein to have sex with at least one teenage girl at the West Palm Beach office of his foundation.)

Thankfully, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said Monday it will continue its independent criminal probe into “irregularities” regarding Epstein’s 2008 plea agreement and incarceration at the Palm Beach County Stockade.

We agree with state Sen. Lauren Book, the Plantation Democrat who first called for the FDLE probe, when she said in a statement that Epstein’s death won’t allow people who enabled Epstein’s activities to “escape accountability and silence survivors.”

“While some answers died with Jeffrey Epstein, there are still questions to be asked and individuals to be held accountable,” said Book, herself a survivor of childhood sexual abuses. “So for those who assisted Epstein and for those who took part in his sick criminal acts, we shall pursue justice every single day until every last criminal has been caught — justice will not be denied.”

For the sake of the true victims in this tragedy, we hope not.
