BREAKING NEWS: Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his jail cell this morning, according to reports. According to The Sun, Epstein hung himself and ultimately committed suicide:
The shock death comes two weeks after the 66-year-old was placed on suicide watch when he was found slumped in jail with neck injuries.
A stretcher carrying his body was spotted being wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7.30am this morning. The ambulance then took the body to New York Downtown Hospital – hours after damming legal documents shed new light on the claims against him.
It was not immediately clear whether the authorities had put in additional safeguards to watch Epstein – an ex pal of Prince Andrew – after the incident last month.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
His death occurred just one day after documents were unsealed, implicated several high-profile Democrats like Al Gore and former Governor Bill Richardson. Making matters more strange, yesterday documents also revealed Bill Clinton held a private party on Epstein Island.
Epstein, who was facing charges of trafficking underage girls, had a plethora of powerful friends in politics, banking, entertainment, and journalism. He was friendly with many of the nation’s most rich and famous–including former President Clinton who took numerous rides on Epstein’s private jet.
Clinton, through a spokesperson, admitted to taking four trips on the jet–in 2002 and 2003–but investigative reporting from Fox News found that he had in fact been on the aircraft dozens of times in secret. On numerous occasions, the former president requested that Secret Service not be present on the trips.
Clinton has since stayed silent on the matter and refused to answer any questions from reporters regarding his relationship with Epstein.
