The news has broken that billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has been discovered dead in his Manhattan jail cell.
According to multiple reports, Epstein’s body was discovered early Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center where he was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
Epstein had been cooling his heels in the iron bar hotel after being denied bail following his arrest last month only days after a lawsuit resulted in the unsealing of documents in a 2008 case against Epstein that was settled and in which the billionaire received a slap on the wrist sentence of 13 months.
For those unfamiliar with the story, the purported hedge fund kingpin spent years cultivating relationships with powerful politicians, celebrities, media figures and big business leaders some of whom according to reports may have been secretly recorded having sex with minors that would serve as blackmail material.
One of his close associates was former President Bill Clinton who reportedly took over two dozen trips on Epstein’s private plane dubbed the Lolita Express and booked a private party on the billionaire’s exotic Caribbean private island that locals called “orgy island” and “pedo island.”
Now Epstein is DEAD!

Via The Washington Examiner, “Dead by suicide: Body of Jeffrey Epstein, sex trafficker and billionaire friend of the famous, found in cell”:
Jeffrey Epstein, the jet-setting financier who was being held in the Manhattan Correctional Center while awaiting his trial on charges of child sex trafficking next year, died by suicide overnight, according to multiple law enforcement sources.
The 14-page indictment against Epstein alleged that he sexually exploited dozens of minor girls at his homes in Manhattan, New York, and Palm Beach, among other locations, between 2002 and 2005 and perhaps beyond. Some of the victims were ostensibly as young as 14 at the time the alleged crimes occurred.
His suicide followed the unsealing on Friday of 2,000 pages of court records by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit connected to the defamation lawsuit brought by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre against British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s on-again-off-again girlfriend and longtime associate whom Giuffre has accused of helping Epstein abuse her and other women when Giuffre was underage. The records included allegations by Giuffre that Maxwell instructed her to have sex with New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former Sen. George Mitchell, among other high-profile figures.
Epstein was reportedly found nearly unconscious on his cell floor with marks on his neck back in July, but it had never been officially confirmed by authorities whether he had attempted to take his own life, whether he’d been assaulted by another inmate, or whether it was a ploy to change prisons.
Epstein’s untimely demise will likely have a lot of people sleeping a lot better tonight including Mr. Clinton.
The death of this fiendish monster begs the question as to why after a previous suicide attempt that he wasn’t placed under 24/7 suicide watch given his notoriety and list of powerful individuals who he could have implicated if he sang to save his own skin.
And just like that, another one of those mysterious deaths that have often claimed those who have run afoul of the Clintons is in the history books.
Dead men tell no tales.
This is a developing story…
