Epstein’s Case Ends After Apparent Suicide, Investigations into Co-Conspirators Begin
The FBI and Department of Justice are continuing to investigate the jail cell suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, the multimillionaire accused of sexual trafficking.
Jail house staff in the Manhattan prison Epstein was being held in say he was found unresponsive early Saturday morning.
Just two weeks ago, Epstein was found semi-conscious from an apparent suicide attempt.
Arrested on July 6, Epstein pleaded not guilty to federal charges that he enticed, recruited and molested dozens of young girls at his homes in New York and Florida.
With Epstein’s death, the criminal case against him ends. But prosecutors say they are still seeking justice.
Investigations into co-conspirators are beginning, and charges could come soon.
Law enforcement is continuing to gather evidence from all of Epstein’s properties.
