Jeffrey Epstein died in his cell Saturday after hanging himself, according to authorities.
His surprising death comes despite the wealthy hedge fund investor having been placed on suicide watch after he had been found slumped over with neck injuries just two weeks ago.
Epstein’s suicide came just one day after hundreds of court documents were unsealed that alleged claims of sex abuse against him and several powerful associates, including a former president and England’s Prince Andrew, Duke of York.
The unsealed documents contained descriptions of sexual abuse by Epstein along with new allegations of sexual abuse by “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister and other world leaders.”
Others named in the documents were former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, financier Glenn Dubin, former Democratic senator George Mitchell, MIT scientist Marvin Minsky (deceased), and modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel. Mentioned anonymously were “another prince” and a “former president.”
Authorities said that Epstein hung himself in his cell at MCC Manhattan where he was being held without bail pending his trial.
