BREAKING: Jeffrey Epstein Found Dead in Prison Cell
Billionaire found in cell after apparent suicide
Clinton-tied convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has been found dead in his prison cell where he was awaiting trial for child sex trafficking charges.
The billionaire Democratic donor died overnight in an apparent suicide, law enforcement sources revealed Saturday.
A gurney carrying a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7:30 a.m. and headed to New York Downtown Hospital.
A call for a reported cardiac arrest came in at 6:38 a.m., Fire Department sources said.
Two weeks ago, Epstein, 66, was placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.
The multimillionaire financier was being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges.
Epstein was busted July 6 over the alleged sexual abuse of dozens of young girls in his Upper East Side townhouse and his waterfront mansion in Palm, Beach, Florida, between 2002 and 2005.
He pleaded not guilty and faced up to 45 years in prison.
Thousands of documents unsealed Friday in connection with a defamation case against the perv’s alleged recruiter revealed dozens of high-profile names by the self-identified victim, Virginia Giuffre.

Giuffre says she was forced to perform sex acts with, from former Maine Sen. George Mitchell, British Prince Andrew, ex-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, money manager Glenn Dubin, and MIT professor Marvin Minksy.
The alleged victim also claims she saw former President Bill Clinton on Epstein's private island.
Epstein's alleged "pimp," Ghislaine Maxwell denies these claims, however, which have also been refuted by Clinton himself.
Maxwell claims that Giuffre lied about Clinton being on Epstein's island, despite flight records proving he flew there at least 26 times.
“This is the subject of defamation about Virginia and the lies she has told, and one of the lies she told was that President Clinton was on the island where I was present," Maxwell said.
"Absolutely, 1000 percent that is a flat out total fabrication and lie,” she added.
