Epstein found dead in prison cell: apparent suicide

1221

As per the BBC, the body of Jeffrey Epstein was found at 7:30 local time in his New York jail cell.  He was awaiting trial for charges on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy, to both of which he had pleaded ‘not guilty’.  He was being held without bail.

The New York Post reports that a call for a reported cardiac arrest came in at 6:38 a.m., according to Fire Department sources.  NBC news is reporting that he hanged himself.

The New York Times reports:

Mr. Epstein hanged himself and his body was found this morning at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan at roughly 7:30.

Manhattan federal prosecutors last month charged Mr. Epstein, 66, with sex trafficking of girls as young as 14, and details of his behavior have been emerging for years.

Mr. Epstein, a financier with opulent homes, a private jet and access to elite circles, had been dogged for decades by accusations that he had paid dozens of girls for sexual acts in Florida.

Epstein had been on suicide watch since he was found in his cell with injuries to his neck two weeks ago.

His death comes just one day after thousands of pages of documents related to Epstein’s trafficking of young girls were released.

The documents (pdf) (pdf) (pdf) detail years of abuse from Epstein and an alleged wide-ranging conspiracy spanning multiple countries and state, involving powerful people around the globe.

So he was on suicide watch and yet he still committed suicide. That does not pass the smell test. One less child molester scum on this planet. Too bad. Sad. (tRumps words). Hoping someone finds a bunch of tapes with all the rest of the scum he had at his so called parties.
