Jeffrey Epstein, the financier indicted on sex trafficking charges last month, committed suicide at a Manhattan jail, officials said on Saturday.

Mr. Epstein hanged himself and his body was found at roughly 7:30 Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.

Manhattan federal prosecutors last month charged Mr. Epstein, 66, with sex trafficking of girls as young as 14, and details of his behavior have been emerging for years.

Jeffrey Epstein was not on suicide watch when he hanged himself

Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was not on suicide watch in the Manhattan jail where he hanged himself Saturday morning, officials said.

Department of Justice spokesman Lee Plourde told The Post that Epstein, 66, was not “currently” on watch in his cell at the Manhattan Correctional Facility while he awaited trial on child sex-trafficking charges.

Plourde refused to say whether that meant Epstein had been taken off additional monitoring or whether he had never been getting special attention to make sure he did not kill himself.

“I’m not going to discuss his previous medical status,” he said.

Epstein had reportedly been placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell on July 23. There was some question about whether the incident was a suicide attempt or an assault, and investigators noted that the marks on his neck were “more consistent with being choked than hanging yourself,” one source told the Post.

An ex-cop housed in the same unit as Epstein who faces the death penalty for four drug-related killings upstate was questioned in the incident.

Plourde refused to say whether that incident was ruled a suicide attempt or an assault.

Plourde said Epstein was never treated outside MCC after that incident, disputing reports.

“He was never taken to the hospital,” he said.

It is also unclear if Epstein was in a cell by himself or shared his cell.

Jeffrey Epstein dead: Accusers angry he won’t have to face justice after apparent suicide
By Eileen AJ Connelly and Elizabeth Rosner
August 10, 2019 | 11:50am | Updated

Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers aren’t going to let his apparent suicide silence them.

“Epstein is gone, but justice must still be served,” said Jennifer Araoz after learning that the convicted pedophile died after he reportedly hanged himself in his cell at the Manhattan Correctional Center.

“I am angry Jeffrey Epstein won’t have to face his survivors of his abuse in court,” said Araoz, who claims she was 15 when she was recruited from her Manhattan school to be part of Epstein’s alleged harem of underage girls. She says the billionaire financier forcibly raped her in his Upper East Side mansion.

“We have to live with the scars of his actions for the rest of our lives, while he will never face the consequences of the crimes he committed the pain and trauma he caused so many people,” Araoz’s statement said. “Epstein is gone, but justice must still be served. I hope the authorities will pursue and prosecute his accomplices and enablers, and ensure redress for his victims.”

While no one else was charged in the criminal case that could have put Epstein, 66, behind bars for 45 years, there are several civil suits pending, including one brought by Araoz seeking to unmask the woman who recruited her.

Another suit was brought by self-identified victim Virginia Guiffre, who in court documents released Friday named multiple prominent men she claimed she was forced to perform sex acts with.

Her attorney, Brad Edwards, said in a statement posted online by Fox News that the suicide 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 the pain he caused,” Edwards said, adding a call for others to come forward with additional information. “We will continue to represent his victims and will not stop in their pursuit of finality and justice.”

Attorney Lisa Bloom said Epstein’s suicide showed “consciousness of guilt.”

“He knew he was guilty, and all his money would not prevent the inevitable conviction,” she tweeted. “He knew justice was coming and he could not face it.”

She called for the administrators of Epstein’s estate to freeze all of his assets and hold them for the victims filing civil cases. “Our civil cases can still proceed against his estate,” she tweeted. “Victims deserve to be made whole for the lifelong damage he caused. We’re just getting started.

Jeffrey Epstein dead: William Barr reportedly ‘livid’ over pedophile’s apparent suicide
By Emily Saul

US Attorney General William Barr is “livid” that Jeffrey Epstein was apparently able to kill himself in a high-security federal penitentiary in Manhattan, according to a report on Saturday.

Barr is “determined to get to the bottom of this,” a source told ABC 7, as the Bureau of Prisons announced that the FBI has launched an investigation into the apparent suicide of the convicted sex offender.

The stunning developments come a day after a trove of newly unsealed documents implicated a number of powerful people in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring.

“The FBI is investigating the incident,” said the bureau.

The BOP statement said that the disgraced financier, who was charged last month with trafficking girls for sex, was found unresponsive in his cell around 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

The statement also called Epstein’s hanging death in the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s 9 South Wing “from apparent suicide.”

The BOP said its staff immediately began attempting life-saving measures. Epstein was rushed to New York Downtown Hospital around 7:30 a.m., where he was pronounced dead.

Newly unsealed documents in a civil case between an Epstein accuser and his longtime gal pal, Ghislaine Maxwell, accused a number of prominent men — including Prince Andrew, the late MIT professor Marvin Minsky, former Maine Sen. George Mitchell, ex-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and money manager Glenn Dubin, and lawyer Alan Dershowitz — of using her for sex.

The men or their surviving spouses all denied the accusations.

Lawyers for Epstein did not respond Saturday to requests for comment.

Photos show Jeffrey Epstein as he’s wheeled into Downtown Hospital
By Larry Celona, Eileen AJ Connelly and Emily Saul
August 10, 2019 | 9:49am | Updated August 10, 2019 | 12:49pm



Paramedics frantically tried to revive convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein early Saturday morning after he was found unresponsive in his cell in downtown Manhattan, exclusive photos shot by The Post reveal.

The 66-year-old disgraced financier hanged himself in his cell in 9 South at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, according to multiple sources.

A call was placed to first responders around 6:30 a.m. as MCC staff tried to revive him, said the FDNY and Bureau of Prisons.

Photos of Epstein taken around 7:30 a.m. show the convicted pedophile still wearing his orange prison jumpsuit as he’s wheeled on a gurney into York Downtown Hospital.

The images show a drawn, ashen face with closed eyes, and EMTs using a breathing apparatus in an attempt to revive the multi-millionaire convicted pedophile.

Epstein was later declared dead at the hospital.

The accused sex trafficker was on suicide watch two weeks ago after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck, though he was no longer under surveillance at the time he took his own life.

The multimillionaire was being held without bail pending a new trial on child sex-trafficking charges.

His lawyers did not respond to requests for comment.
