The woman called "best friend" by former financier and accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested in New Hampshire, according to the FBI.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the 58-year-old daughter of the late British media tycoon Robert Maxwell, dated Epstein more than 10 years ago and remained a close personal confidant up until his death on August 10 last year.

Though the charges are officially sealed, Maxwell has faced civil court accusations of helping Epstein facilitate his now-infamous sex-trafficking operation. The allegations charge that Maxwell acted as a "madam," expediting and coordinating the running of girls as young as 14 to Epstein's Manhattan home.

? Several other individuals have been implicated in aiding and abetting the nefarious sex and pedophilia ring, but the central focus of the investigation has been on Maxwell.
