Epstein was found hanged in his New York jail cell while awaiting trial for child sex charges in 2019.
Because of his high-profile connections to Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton, many conspiracy theorists believe that Epstein did not kill himself.
On Friday Ghislaine’s older brother Ian was asked about Epstein’s suicide.
“I don’t buy a lot of the conspiracy theories at all. It so happens one of the conspiracy theories about my father is that he was murdered instead of committed suicide or died by accident,” Mr Maxwell said.
“And I would venture to believe that she may also think that Epstein was murdered… I do happen to think my sister does think that he was killed,” he said.
Ghislaine and Ian’s dad Robert Maxwell died in uncommon circumstances in 1991 having gone missing after being on his yacht. His body was later uncovered in the water and the official cause of death was put down as accidental drowning following a heart attack.
In July a friend of Ghislaine’s also said that she believed Epstein had been murdered.
“Everyone’s view including Ghislaine’s is Epstein was murdered. She received death threats before she was arrested,” the friend said.

The pal was in regular contact with Maxwell at her secret New Hampshire hideaway before she was arrested by the FBI.
Ghislaine was arrested suddenly in July 2020 – and has been held in prison ever since as she was deemed a flight risk.
She has pleaded not guilty to eight counts of sex trafficking and other charges for her alleged role in recruiting and grooming four teenagers for Epstein to abuse between 1994 and 2004.
Her attorneys say she is being scapegoated because Epstein is no longer alive.
