The original police report on Jeffrey Epstein from 2006 details allegations that many of his teenage victims were recruited from Palm Beach area high schools.

The report says that several victims went to the same high school, which a former attorney for three victims identified as Royal Palm Beach High School.

The report details detectives with the Town of Palm Beach combed through local high school student records to find potential victims. Spencer Kuvin, a West Palm Beach-based attorney who represented three of Epstein's alleged victims in a 2008 civil suit, told CBS12 News that one of his clients was paid to recruit fellow students from Royal Palm Beach High School.

The young women, ranging in ages 15 to 17, allegedly gave Epstein massages, during which dozens claim Epstein performed forced sex acts.

The documents, called an incident report, chronicle the Palm Beach Police Department's investigation into Epstein and evidence compiled, some of which points to area high schools. For instance, in the report, police say they found a transcript from an undisclosed high school in a drawer of Epstein's personal desk when they searched his Palm Beach estate.

One of Epstein's former employees described the young women he took to the Palm Beach mansion as "high school age." He added that Epstein once paid him to take a bucket of roses to congratulate someone on a "high school drama performance."

The report also discusses a fight at a local high school, started when one student called an Epstein victim a "prostitute" after seeing her with $300. The report adds that school officials first believed the fight was connected to drugs.

In 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to one count of soliciting a prostitute, charges that were tied to the 2006 incident report from Palm Beach Police. A federal judge ruled in February 2019 that then-US Attorney Alex Acosta violated the Crime Victims Rights Act by not informing Epstein's victims of the plea deal.

Jeffrey Epstein was found dead of an apparent suicide on Saturday in a New York City jail cell. He was facing federal sex trafficking charges.
