Jeffrey Epstein commits suicide in Manhattan jail cell

NEW YORK CITY (FOX NEWS) — Disgraced multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls, was found dead early Saturday morning inside his Manhattan jail cell.

His death was due to suicide, according to multiple reports.

The 66-year-old Epstein died at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City weeks after he was arrested of multiple child sex-trafficking charges, sources confirmed to Fox News.

The initial call to the jail was cardiac arrest. There was no immediate confirmation on how he died, but multiple reports said Epstein died by suicide.

Epstein’s attorney Martin Weinberg told Fox News on Saturday that he could not “confirm the rumor” that his client had killed himself.

The death comes two weeks after the 66-year-old was placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.

Epstein’s death also comes a day after thousands of documents were unsealed Friday in connection with a defamation cause against his alleged recruiter that revealed dozens of high-profile names including former Maine Sen. George Mitchell, ex-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and Prince Andrew, Duke of York.

Epstein was busted July 6 over the alleged sexual abuse of dozens of young girls in his Upper East Side townhouse and his waterfront mansion in Palm Beach, Florida between 2002 and 2005

Epstein allegedly created and maintained a “vast network” and operation from 2002 “up to and including” at least 2005 that enabled him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls” in addition to paying victims to recruit other underage girls. Prosecutors said that victims would be escorted to a room with a massage table where they would perform massages on Epstein.

At the time of Epstein’s arrest, prosecutors said they found a trove of pictures of nude and seminude young women and girls at his $77 million Manhattan mansion. They also say additional victims have come forward since the arrest.

    How many bullets to the back of the head?
    Add another body to the Clinton Crime Family Syndicate, as he took one to keep Hillary and Bill out of trouble.

    “The most suspicious prison death since Lee Harvey Oswald.”
    Not my line,but true.Also some are mentioning,was this really a suicide,or was Epstein whisked away to an uncharted island never to be seen again? How does anyone know what really happened?The rich take care of their own interests.

      There’s a media picture of Epstein’s supposed corpse being wheeled out–someone commented,”He didn’t look dead to me.”
      And we’ll never know.

  • BS

    Everyone knew this would happen, but with the way the Clinton Foundation donations dried up – they just didn’t think an ex-President and ex-Secretary of State had the clout to get it done.

    With someone’s finger prints on his neck to boot. Just like whitey bulger who was moved by Bobby mueller to cover his corrupt days using whitey to kill people and beat to death. Whitey was moved to be snuffed out and Jeffery knew to much about to many, political figures and wealthy people and Hollywood and those who are on logs for the aircraft trips. Don’t worry people the SDNY and the FBI will solve this with no bias while trying to take down the President. Maybe the last NY attorney general who slapped around girls while having sex with them and on drugs will help too.

    According to the AP, Epstein was taken off suicide watch before it happened. However, bear in mind that it’s the AP is making the claim and their veracity is both laughable and what you might say is ‘fake news’ on steroids. Hell, they may be starting a unverifiable rumor just to give them something to do.

  • Another one bites the dust.

    Normally it takes days for autopsy results but when the Clintons are involved it takes less then five minutes. There should be an illness named after the Clinton. ” suicide by Clinton ” .
