Ellison’s last tentative destination was Hong Kong, which was suggested after FTX and the Alameda implosion. At the time, a source told Cointelegraph on November 12 that she was looking to flee to Dubai.

Twitter user and self-proclaimed “citizen journalist” Autism Capital appears to be the first to share the photos, which are understood to have been sent by an anonymous user.

“A user said they saw Caroline Ellison at 8:15 AM Ground Support Coffee on West Broad in Soho Manhattan. [UTC]. This means she is not in Hong Kong and is in NY under arrest,” he wrote.

In response, a man who goes by Daniel Mentado (@dmentado) claiming to work at the cafe “confirmed” that it was Ellison, and that one of the employees would serve her.

Some members of the community are surprised that Ellison is on US soil, while others are concerned about possible legal complications. It is estimated Ellison may be looking to cut a deal with the authorities.

The coffee shop in question is only short walking Away from the US Attorney’s office and the New York FBI office, some suggested.

It is worth noting that this photo is 100% concrete proof that Ellison has yet to be seen. Some members of the crypto community even have. He tried. To find an answer in the body, without any success.

Meanwhile, FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried went on a media tour, denying intentional foul play and putting the blame on Alameda’s leadership.

Notably, Banman-Fried Ellison tweeted a few hours later that he planned to testify at some point in a House Financial Services Committee hearing, but not until he had “finished learning and evaluating what happened.”
