Jeffery Epstein who was being held without bond and awaiting trial for a number of illegal acts involving minors has been found dead in his jail cell according to the New York Post. From the NYP this morning…

Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein died overnight in an apparent suicide, law enforcement sources told the Post 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 close to many politicians and high profile people and was particularly close to Bill Clinton, which the media has done an awesome job trying to cover that tidbit up.

Just in the past couple of days, new names had emerged being connected with Epstein in the form of former Senate Majority Leader of the Senate and prominent Democrat George Mitchell and Former New Mexico Governor and fellow Democrat Bill Richardson.

That Epstein had an apparent suicide attempt last week and was able to allegedly be successful this time is going to be an ongoing flood of questions on how this was able to occur. Also, get ready for the FLOOD of conspiracy theories about ready to hit.

May his victims rest a lil easier now.
