Jeffrey Epstein Is Dead After Apparent Suicide in Jail

David Boddiger Aug 10, 2019. 24 comments

The wealthy pedophile and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is dead after an apparent suicide at a jail in Manhattan, authorities said on Saturday.

According to several media reports, Epstein hanged himself at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, in New York, and his body was found sometime before 7:30 a.m.

His death comes just hours after the Miami Herald and other news organizations published a huge cache of graphic court documents that tell the tale of his expansive sex trafficking operation that targeted teenage girls in several cities, including Palm Beach, FL, and New York City. According to the Herald, the documents “raise new questions about whether powerful people pressured federal prosecutors in Florida to give Epstein a secret non-prosecution agreement in 2008 that not only granted him immunity, but allowed an untold number of other people who have never been identified to escape sex trafficking charges.”

Among the high-profile names mentioned in the documents, which were part of a 2015 defamation lawsuit by victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre against Epstein’s alleged accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, are former Maine Senator George Mitchell, the late scientist Marvin Minsky, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Hyatt hotels magnate Tom Pritzker, and hedge fund manager Glenn Dubin, the newspaper reported. Also previously identified are Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew.

All of the prominent men whose names appear and who are still alive have denied being involved in Epstein’s massive pedophile and sex trafficking ring, which spanned decades.

Late last month, Epstein, 66, had been found injured and semi-conscious in his Manhattan jail cell after an apparent attempted suicide. He was arrested in early July at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, after flying from Paris, and charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors. The arrest was prompted by a Miami Herald investigation of the Epstein case last November called “Perversion of Justice.”

This story is developing.
