Medical Examiner: Epstein’s death was a suicide
A medical examiner has ruled Jeffrey Epstein’s death was a suicide and that he hanged himself in his prison cell, The Associated Press and CNN reported Friday.
Epstein, 66, was found dead in the special housing unit of the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York on Saturday. He was in a cell by himself.
The multimillionaire hedge fund manager had been jailed since early last month, awaiting trial on federal charges accusing him of operating a sex trafficking ring from 2002 to 2005 at his Manhattan mansion and his Palm Beach estate in which he paid girls as young as 14 for sex. He pleaded not guilty to the charges.
