(Newser) – In stepping forward to tell her story to NBC News, accuser Jennifer Araoz described being given a tour of Jeffrey Epstein's Manhattan home nearly two decades ago. Among the stranger things she recalls seeing: a bathroom that had a set of prosthetic breasts within arm's reach of the bathtub. When police raided the seven-story home on Saturday, they found more atypical things. More on those finds, and the latest coverage on the Epstein case:

  • The New York Times describes an unusual mural on the second floor: "a photorealistic prison scene that included barbed wire, corrections officers, and a guard station, with Mr. Epstein portrayed in the middle." A PR specialist who was at the mansion three months ago told the paper what Epstein told him about its origins: "He said, 'That’s me, and I had this painted because there is always the possibility that could be me again.'"
  • The Times also describes a life-size female doll dangling from a chandelier and a chess board set up near the stairs to a study that featured "suggestively" clad pieces, all said to be fashioned after one of his employees.
