Conspiracy theorists are convinced that deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is still alive after an alleged sighting in New Mexico.

Footage posted to YouTube purports to show Epstein, who was found dead from an apparent suicide in his jail cell in New York in 2019, driving a red truck outside of his infamous Zorro Ranch.

Protesters descended on the property in 2019 to demand an investigation not long after the New York Times revealed that Epstein planned to “seed the human race with his DNA by impregnating women” at the ranch.

The alleged Epstein sighting was posted to the YouTube channel of ABQ Raw, a self-described guerrilla filmmaking and news group.

“The driver of the red truck had a striking resemblance to the recently deceased Jeffrey Epstein,” the video’s narrator says. “Did Jeffrey Epstein kill himself? It may be completely possible that he has ridden off into the New Mexico sunset.”

Fellow conspiracy theorists in the comments agreed, noting that Epstein could be alive despite actually being dead.

“I mean that’s the only property they haven’t raided and that red truck is always there so I won’t rule it out,” one user said.

But the vast majority of users weren’t buying it, noting that the allegations were even too far-out for them.

“Nobody resembling Epstein appears in your video,” another user says.

While the video was first posted in October, the conspiracy was renewed after it was picked up by various outlets, like the Sun and the New York Post.

The deceased pedophile has been the subject of countless conspiracies since his death, with some even suggesting that the body found in Epstein’s cell was not the man himself.

While Epstein was able to escape charges, Ghislaine Maxwell, his alleged confidant, remains in custody.
