Jeffrey Epstein, accused sex trafficker, dies by suicide: Officials
By ELLA TORRES, AARON KATERSKYandLUKE BARR Aug 10, 2019, 10:32 AM ET

Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced millionaire who was facing federal sex trafficking charges, died by suicide early Saturday in his Lower Manhattan prison cell, three law enforcement officials told ABC News.

Epstein hanged himself, law enforcement sources said. He was transported in cardiac arrest at 6:39 a.m. from Metropolitan Correctional Center to New York Downtown Hospital, according to sources.

Epstein, 66, was set to stand trial next year for allegedly sexually abusing dozens of minor girls in New York and Florida.

His death came less than three weeks after he was found unresponsive in his cell at the federal prison in Lower Manhattan, with marks on his neck that appeared to be self-inflicted, sources told ABC News.

He had been on suicide watch since the July 23 incident.

Epstein was arrested in July of this year for alleged sex trafficking of minor girls at his Upper East Side mansion and his home in Palm Beach, Florida. Some of the charges date back to the early 2000s.

Epstein, 66, pleaded not guilty to the charges. He faced up to 45 years in prison if convicted.

His alleged crimes were thrown back into the spotlight amid renewed scrutiny of the plea deal Epstein reached with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in 2007, led by then-U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta. A non-prosecution agreement allowed Epstein, a hedge-fund manager, to plead guilty to two state charges and avoid federal charges for an allegedly broad pattern of similar sexual misconduct. He would serve just 13 months of an 18-month sentence in county jail in Florida.

The alleged victims in that case told ABC News they were not made aware of the details of the plea agreement while it was being negotiated.

The deal is currently under review by the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility. Acosta was serving as President Trump's Labor Secretary amid the controversy over his role in the deal. He later resigned from that position.

On Friday, a federal appellate court in New York unsealed around 2,000 pages of documents from a now-settled civil defamation case between Virginia Roberts Giuffre, an alleged Epstein victim, and British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, a longtime Epstein associate.

Giuffre accused Maxwell of recruiting her while she was working as a locker-room attendant at Mar-A-Lago in 2000 and bringing her to Epstein's home for a massage. She claims that she eventually became a teen sex slave to Epstein, and a victim of sex trafficking, beginning at age 17, at the hands of both Epstein and Maxwell.

The newly-unsealed documents showed that Giuffre alleged that Epstein and Maxwell directed her to have sex with, among others: Prince Andrew; criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz; former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson; former Senator George Mitchell; a well-known prime minster, who she wouldn't name; and a foreign man who was introduced to her as a "prince."

Maxwell has consistently denied Giuffre's claims.


"Ghislaine Maxwell did not participate in, facilitate, manage or otherwise conspire to commit sex trafficking" as alleged by Giuffre, her attorney wrote in a 2016 court filing.

Maxwell's attorneys also contend in the newly unsealed court filings that Giuffre had “utterly failed” to substantiate her allegations that Maxwell facilitated her abuse. Giuffre’s claims about having been trafficked to other prominent men, Maxwell’s lawyers wrote, are “patently incredible.”

Mitchell called the allegations "false."

"I have never met, spoken with or had any contact with Ms. Giuffre," he said in a statement issued Friday. "In my contacts with Mr. Epstein I never observed or suspected any inappropriate conduct with underage girls. I only learned of his actions when they were reported in the media related to his prosecution in Florida. We have had no further contact."

Richardson also denied Giuffre's claims.

"These allegations and inferences are completely false. Governor Richardson has never even been contacted by any party regarding this lawsuit," Maddy Mahony, a spokeswoman for Richardson, said in a statement. "To be clear, in Governor Richardson’s limited interactions with Mr. Epstein, he never saw him in the presence of young or underage girls. Governor Richardson has never been to Mr. Epstein’s residence in the Virgin Islands. Governor Richardson has never met Ms. Giuffre."

Giuffre's allegations were never tested in court because the case was settled prior to trial.

During a detention hearing in July, Epstein came face-to-face with two other accusers. Annie Farmer said she was 16 when Epstein had her sent to New Mexico where he was allegedly “inappropriate” with her. Courtney Wild told the judge she was 14 when Epstein allegedly sexually abused her in Palm Beach, Florida. Both women spoke in support of keeping Epstein locked up without bail.

Epstein appeared to watch them address the judge, but his face showed no emotion.

A federal judge later denied bail for Epstein, after deciding he was too great a flight risk to release from custody.




seems like he's been arkacide.

Uh oh. Wait for it. The conspiracy theory about a dead body double and how Epstein is on his way to a retreat on the planet Jupiter along with a bunch of sex slaves aged from toddler to 14.

Look at the pix before shooting from the hip and tell us what your keen powers of observation see. No, that's not your local McDonald's hangout.. Anyway I was asking tdoyka simply what he saw in the pix before your potshot, that's all.

Attorney General Barr announces investigation into Epstein's death by suicide amid reports the convicted sex offender wasn't on suicide watch when he died

CBS News' White House Correspondent Paula Reid reported that Attorney General William Barr was "livid" that wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein died of an apparent suicide early Saturday morning.
In a statement, Barr wrote that he was "appalled" to learn Epstein was found dead while in federal custody at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, and said his death "raises serious questions that must be answered."
Barr also announced an investigation would be opened in the Office of the Inspector General into the circumstances surrounding Epstein's death, in addition to the previously announced FBI investigation into the incident.
Although Epstein was hospitalized and reportedly placed on suicide watch in late July, he wasn't on it at the time of his death.

Attorney General William Barr released a statement through the Department of Justice on Saturday announcing the the Office of the Inspector General would launch an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Jeffrey Epstein's death by apparent suicide while in federal custody.

Epstein, a 66-year-old wealthy financier charged with sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy, was found unresponsive in his cell at 6:30 a.m., and was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead after staff "immediately" started "life-saving procedures." The death was by hanging, The New York Times reported. Epstein, who pleaded not guilty, was being held without bail while he awaited trial.

A source told CBS News' White House Correspondent Paula Reid that Barr was "livid" to learn that Epstein had died, and in his statement Barr wrote that he was "appalled."

Barr said Epstein's death "raises serious questions that must be answered." The inspector general investigation is in addition to the previously announced FBI investigation into the circumstances surrounding the convicted sex offender's death.

Epstein wasn't on suicide watch at the time of his death
In late July, Epstein was also found unresponsive in his cell after another apparent suicide attempt, with marks around his neck that appeared to be self-inflicted. After a brief hospitalization, Epstein returned to his cell, where he was set to be monitored on suicide watch.

But multiple sources told NBC News that Epstein was not on suicide watch at the time of his death Saturday.

Epstein's charges stem from accusations that he ran a sex trafficking operation involving minor girls as young as 14, and had assaulted dozens of women in the process. Federal prosecutors were prepared to bring forth new evidence besides what had been collected in a Florida trial in 2007, during which Epstein and former Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta signed a controversial secret plea agreement that resulted in Epstein serving 13 months of an 18-month jail sentence.

Epstein's accusers have reported that they are "angry" at his death, with one victim's lawyer publishing a statement from an accuser that said she will "never have a sense of closure now."

The Barr response is just a laughable response. The DOJ and whoever killed Epstein operate the same way. Is there really that much difference between killing people literally and killing people legally, as Mueller did? Just because Barr registered some indignation does not mean that DOJ is in any way above the most vile practices. Their record precedes them.

Until we start seeing some perp walks by the perps of the ongoing coup attempts, DOJ will have no legitimacy. Don't hold your breath waiting. You'll end up like Epstein did.

When you look at the long list of who is who and it was growing every day there is a lot more to this story than meet the eye, will we ever know the truth not in this life. Too many name people in high places he had to go and quick before the list got bigger. Very sad when men of power and wealth ruin their lives as well as friends and family for a few minutes of sex with an under age girl. You reap what you so.
