(Daily Mail) — Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, 66, has killed himself in his Manhattan jail cell, 24 hours after files in his case were unsealed and two weeks after he was placed on suicide watch ahead of his sex trafficking trial.
Jeffrey Epstein has hanged himself inside his New York City jail cell.
The billionaire pedophile was found in cardiac arrest shortly before 7am on Saturday at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan.
The 66-year-old was rushed to nearby New York Downtown Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
In a statement, a spokeswoman for the chief medical examiner confirmed that they had custody of Epstein’s body and had commenced an investigation into the exact ’cause and manner’ of his death.
