Jeffrey Epstein Found Dead By Apparent Suicide In His Manhattan Jail Cell

Brad Edwards, another attorney representing some of Epstein accusers remarked Epstein's demise as both "both unfortunate and predictable".

Jeffrey Epstein is no more. It is suggested that the disgraced financier had hanged himself and was found dead in his cell. His body was found at 7:30 a.m. ET at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York, a federal jail in Manhattan, mentions a special report on NBC News.

Not too long ago, in fact precisely about just two weeks ago; Epstein was found injured and in a fetal position in his cell. He was semiconscious with marks on his neck and was put on suicide watch. The act was committed a week after his bail request was turned down. 

He was confined in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while he appealed a district judge's refusal to let him live under 24-hour guard in his home on the Upper East Side, stated the report. 

Epstein had been in the eye of the storm, and faced a trial on the sex trafficking charges next year, with a possible 45-year prison sentence if convicted, stated a report on Telegraph. Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, had pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14. However, the charges were announced more than a decade after Epstein pleaded guilty to state prostitution charges in Florida.

Several thoughts have run amok among billions world over, as a further probe is underway. Meanwhile, Brad Edwards, another attorney representing some of Epstein accusers remarked Epstein's demise as both "both unfortunate and predictable. In a statement, he said, “The fact that Jeffrey Epstein was able to commit the selfish act of taking his own life as his world of abuse, exploitation, and corruption unraveled is both unfortunate and predictable."
“The victims deserved to see Epstein held accountable, and he owed it to everyone he hurt to accept responsibility for all of the pain he caused.”
