BREAKING NEWS: Jeffrey Epstein, the jet-setting financier who was being held in the Manhattan Correctional Center while awaiting his trial on charges of child sex trafficking next year, died by suicide overnight, according to multiple law enforcement sources.
[Suspicion was already surrounding Epstein’s earlier “suicide attempt” in jail late July. No doubt there is much concern that this was not a suicide but a hit job by those who feared being revealed through the Epstein pedophilia and human trafficking investigation and trial. Pray that the TRUTH of who was involved would not be hindered by Epstein’s death. Pray for protection for those who are working on this case. ]
The 14-page indictment against Epstein alleged that he sexually exploited dozens of minor girls at his homes in Manhattan, New York, and Palm Beach, among other locations, between 2002 and 2005 and perhaps beyond. Some of the victims were allegedly as young as 14 at the time the alleged crimes occurred.
His suicide followed the unsealing on Friday of 2,000 pages of court records by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit connected to the defamation lawsuit brought by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre against British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s on-again-off-again girlfriend and longtime associate whom Giuffre has accused of helping Epstein abuse her and other women when Giuffre was underage. The records included allegations by Giuffre that Maxwell instructed her to have sex with New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former Sen. George Mitchell, among other high-profile figures.
Epstein was reportedly found nearly unconsciouson his cell floor with marks on his neck back in July, but it had never been officially confirmed by authorities whether he had attempted to take his own life, whether he’d been assaulted by another inmate, or whether it was a ploy to change prisons.
The wealthy businessman, already a convicted sex offender following a sweetheart plea deal in 2008, was arrested at the airport in Teterboro, New Jersey, after returning from an overseas trip to Paris in early July. Epstein’s home in New York City was raided by law enforcement as well, and investigators found nude photographs of underage girls, thousands of dollars in cash, dozens of loose diamonds, and a foreign passport from the 1980s with Epstein’s picture and a false name.
In denying him bail earlier this month, the judge said that Epstein posed a “significant” danger to the community and agreed with prosecutors that he was a serious flight risk.
