Jeffrey Epstein and the doomed dome: the mysterious temple of Pedophile Island has lost its golden dome
The arrest of Jeffrey Epstein for federal indictment for sex trade earlier this month has turned his two properties off the coast of St. Thomas into ghost islands.
New images and photography of drones show the state of the islands, including the huge amounts of development on Big St. James and his shockingly bald temple on Little St. James.
Photos obtained by DailyMail.com show that the blue-white striped structure is suddenly without its golden dome.

Pedophile Island: the golden dome that was formally atop the Jeffrey Epstein temple on Little St James has disappeared in recent photos (temple without temple above)
Conviction: A local resident told DailyMail.com that it went missing around the time Hurricane Irma struck the island in 2017 and they believed Epstein had removed the dome before the Category 5 storm landed
Hidden Messages: The Temple Has Been Of Great Importance For QAnon Community Members Who Had Speaked About The Island Long Before The Current Arrest Of Epestin
Blown away: Irma, a category 5 storm when it landed on the island, is still the most powerful hurricane ever to hit the Atlantic region
It is unclear where the dome is, but there were local reports in 2017 that it was blown off the temple when Hurricane Irma hit the region.
A local resident told DailyMail.com that they had the impression that Epstein had his staff remove the dome for the hurricane.
Irma, a category 5 storm when it landed on the island, is still the most powerful hurricane ever to hit the Atlantic region.
However, the dome never went back up and now the temple is unadorned and striped on the island.
The temple has been of great importance to members of the QAnon community who had spoken of the island long before Epestin & # 39; s current arrest or the danger of explosion by Julie Brown in The Miami Herald.
Many community members believe that Epstein hides young girls he has enslaved in underground rooms below the temple and other parts of the island.
There is no concrete evidence to support that claim, but the conviction of the community that a famous actress recruited young victims for Epstein is not completely unbelievable.
A number of Epstein victims actually became actress Brown, Alec Baldwin told in an interview in April.
Epstein doubled his property in January 2016 when he paid $ 18 million for Great St James a few years ago.
That 162-hectare estate is next to Little St. James, the 71.5-hectare island that he bought in 1998 for $ 7.95 million.
Pool house: Little St. James is 71.5 hectares and on the island you will find cabanas, a helicopter platform, a Japanese garden and a cinema
Steps: Epstein had made the island his main residence in the past decade, prior to his most recent arrest
Complex: there are 70 employees who always work on the island and it can be rented for more than $ 50,000 per night
Epstein's plans for Great St. John include an indoor dock, two houses, cottages, an amphitheater, gardens, a marine electrical cable, solar panels and generator, storage building, security building, work shed, machine shop and an & # 39; underwater office and swimming pool. & # 39;
That ship and a few completed structures, as well as construction equipment, are visible in aerial photos of the island.
This work has been done despite the fact that only the construction of a flagpole and repair of reservoirs on the island has been approved.
Epstein is behind bars awaiting trial for sex trafficking
And yet his temple next door remains stupid.
Epstein has placed & # 39; No Trespassing & # 39; signs everywhere in almost all of Great St. James to know the popularity of the area with tourists.
Local laws make all land under the tide or bush lines public property, so Epstein cannot legally kick people off that land, but he makes sure that no one wanders to his property.
He continues to make Little St. James his main residence, but last month the helicopter that takes the millionaire and his guests to and from the airport was for sale online, with an asking price of $ 1.8 million
Epstein also sold one of his private jets in June. His other was seized when he was arrested earlier this month after he landed on American soil after a three-week trip to Paris.
In total, Epstein's properties are valued at nearly $ 150 million.
There is the Paris bolthole where he spent the weeks before returning to the US and being arrested on the asphalt while his plane landed at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey.
The $ 9 million pied-a-terre is located on one of the most beautiful blocks in the City of Light and Epstein traveled there often, often every summer for a few months in the apartment.
Halfway the world, just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, lies the Epstein estate.
Property: Jeffrey Epstein owns two adjacent properties in the US Virgin Islands and has purchased Little St. James in 1998 and Great St. James in 2016
True in the world: Epstein flew about 30 times in his home on the Virgin Islands in the 18 months prior to his arrest (islands above)
The Zorro Ranch consists of a mansion of 26,700 square feet on 10,000 acres that was purchased by Epstein in 1993.
It was only 7,500 acres when he bought the property, but Epstein has added to the farm over the years.
There is also a possible ski chalet that Epstein owns, with records obtained by DailyMail.com showing that a $ 22 million home in Vail, Colorado was added to its portfolio in 1997.
It was transferred to him in 1998 by Libet Johnson, the deceased heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, who died in 2017.
Johnson & # 39; s name, however, remained in the deed and she mentioned both herself and Epstein as living at the same address on Madison Avenue.
It is still mentioned as the property of the deceased heir's trust.
The sale of his $ 77 million Manhattan mansion also happened under mysterious circumstances, where public records did not show a transfer of money when he received the home of his good friend Leslie Wexner.
However, there was a transfer of nearly $ 50 million to a Wexner charity fund from companies registered at Epstein's addresses.
This is the house where during the weekend a search revealed nude photos, disks with images of minors and the infamous massage table from Epstein.
It is known as the Herbert N. Straus House, named after the former owner who was one of the heirs of the Macy's fortune, the department store founded by his parents.
Another department store magnate, Leslie Wexner from Limited Brands, later bought the property and then handed it over to his now estranged friend Epstein.
Finally, there is the $ 14 million estate in Palm Beach that was purchased in 1990 and where a number of young girls said they had been sexually abused.
