ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Many viewers reported seeing a statue of convicted sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein in downtown Albuquerque Wednesday morning.
Viewers sent in photos of what appeared to be a bronze statue placed in front of the old city hall. Turns out it was actually a painted mannequin.
Below the painted mannequin was a plaque that gave a brief background on Epstein and also read in part: He had a home in New Mexico, Zorro Ranch. He was also a rapist who died in prison. It then went on to list several court cases involving Epstein and his victims.
