Jeffrey Epstein signed will just two days before suicide

The court document, filed in the US Virgin Islands, where the convicted sex molester owned two isles — including one that locals dubbed "Pedophile Island'' — was filed Aug. 8.

The 66-year-old former hedge-fund manager was worth $577,672,654, or about $18 million more than he previously stated in court papers while futilely trying to land bail on federal sex-trafficking charges, the new documents show.

He put all of his holdings in a trust, called The 1953 Trust, after the year he was born.

"It's done that way for privacy reasons,'' a city estate lawyer told The Post. "It's pretty boiler-plate. It's what we call a 'pour-over will,' which means everything pours over to a trust.

"What is more unusual is the date, the fact that all of this was done just days before he died,'' said the source, who asked to remain anonymous.
