Disgraced billionaire accused of child trafficking, commits suicide

Jeffrey Epstein, the financier indicted on sex trafficking charges last month has died.

The billionaire committed suicide at a Manhattan jail, on Friday, August, 9.

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

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


The financier with opulent homes, a private jet and access to elite circles, had been dogged for decades by accusations that he had paid dozens of girls for sexual acts in Florida.
