Ghislaine Maxwell, the British-born socialite and alleged madam of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, was spotted at an In-N-Out in Los Angeles eating a burger and reading a book, the New York Post reported.
This public appearance occurred less than a week after Epstein was found dead in his federal prison cell of an apparent suicide.
We went to the In-N-Out where she was photographed — and we were not alone in visiting for more than just beloved burgers and fries.
The fast-food restaurant appeared to be a niche attraction on Thursday, as some visitors to the In-N-Out took pictures at the table where she sat to eat her meal.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged madam of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, was spotted on Monday with a book and burger at In-N-Out.
The appearance of the British-born socialite at the burger joint in Los Angeles, first reported by the New York Post, comes less than a week after Epstein was found dead in his federal prison cell by an apparent suicide.

“She has to eat somewhere, so it makes sense that she would go to the most popular place in California,” In-N-Out customer, Ashton Tate, said to Business Insider in an interview on Thursday.
On a Thursday evening, the fast-food restaurant appeared to be a niche attraction. Some visitors to the In-N-Out took pictures at the table where she sat to eat her meal. After observing a few people take advantage of the photo op, one In-N-Out customer, who had not previously been briefed on the Epstein case, even wanted a picture for himself.
“It’s kind of surprising that someone who seems so sophisticated would surface at a fast-food place,” another customer Alex Salvato, who ended up not taking a photo at the table, told Business Insider. “Because it’s so close to the studios, I always think about seeing celebrities here, so it’s pretty crazy that she would be here.”
Despite repeated requests, the general manager of the In-N-Out location and various employees declined to comment. A representative from the marketing department of In-N-Out Inc. did not have a statement during a phone call with Business Insider, saying that the family-owned company respects the privacy of customers.
