Jeffrey Epstein dead by suicide in Manhattan jail cell
Billionaire and alleged sex offender Jeffrey Epstein found dead by suicide in Manhattan jail cell. Documents recently released implicated some big names and Epstein was waiting for his trial on federal sex trafficking.
His body was found lifeless around 7:30 a.m. today and he reportedly hung himself based on a report by the NYT.
Epstein was recently on suicide watch after he was found in fetal position and injured, with marks on his necks that previous reports suggest were self-inflicted.
Epstein's recent legal worries stem from allegedly "sex trafficking dozens of underage girls. He pleaded not guilty to the charges in July, and has been held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan," per a report on Mediaite.
Epstein was 66. Some of his victims were allegedly as young as 14.
Epstein's little black book referenced lots of big names, some with multiple contacts such as Bill Clinton.
