Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in his prison cell

Millionaire financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has died in a Manhattan jail, with law enforcement sources saying he killed himself. The incident comes two weeks after the 66-year-old was found ‘injured and in a fetal position’ on the floor of his cell, with injuries to his neck. Prior to his death, Epstein looked set to face the full weight of the justice system for his alleged deeds. A decade earlier he managed to dodge federal charges for similar crimes, striking a controversial plea deal that saw him serve only 13 months in a low-security jail for the lesser charge of solicitation of prostitution from a minor.
