New court records show that US financier Jeffrey Epstein signed a will just two days before he killed himself in jail.

Court papers filed last week in the US Virgin Islands list no details of beneficiaries, but value the estate at almost nine-billion-Rands, including more than 860-million-Rands in cash.

Prosecutors have moved to dismiss the indictment against Epstein but are considering charging others with facilitating his alleged abuse of dozens of girls.
