Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, 66, has died inside a Manhattan correctional facility in what the Bureau of Prisons called an “apparent suicide.”
The mysterious multimillionaire—already a convicted sex offender in Florida—has been held without bail at the MCC since his surprise arrest on charges of child sex trafficking at New Jersey’s Teterboro airport in early July, after he arrived on his private jet from Paris.
Epstein had initially been held in general population at MCC, where he’d been targeted for extortion as a wealthy pedophile, a person with knowledge of his circumstances told The Daily Beast, before being transferred to a cell with a roommate in the Special Housing Unit separated from the rest of the prison and with extra security.
He had been placed on suicide watch after he was found in his cell in that unit “in medical distress” on July 23 with “apparent bruising on his neck” and was taken off the suicide watch six days later, The New York Times reported Saturday.
The person described the injuries from Epstein’s first alleged suicide attempt as small abrasions around his neck, and said that while protocols were followed, Epstein had received no preferential treatment afterward.
He did get a cell to himself in the unit, where the rich man “lived like a pig in a sty” after that attempt, the person said, eating his meals off of the floor and constantly requesting more toilet paper.
In conversations with other inmates, he at times asked for their inmate numbers, presumably to put money into their accounts.
A spokeswoman for the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner confirmed they had Epstein’s body, and said, “We are investigating this death. Cause and manner are pending.”
