Last month, we blogged that Prosecutors Allege Jeffrey Epstein Operated Sex Trafficking Ring With Girls as Young as 14. He was indicted on sex trafficking conspiracy and one count of sex trafficking with underage females.

Epstein reportedly committed suicide overnight in his jail cell.

ABC News reports:

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

[UPDATES]

It’s not yet clear how someone on suicide watch managed to commit suicide in a jail cell, but the conspiracy theorists are out in full force.

The above is apparently a reference to the following report: Jeffrey Epstein Accuser Names Powerful Men in Alleged Sex Ring.  And no, President Trump is not named, but that won’t stop the long-suffering Trump deranged.
