Jeffrey Epstein’s prison death has been ruled a ‘suicide by hanging’.

Epstein, aged 66, was found dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in New York City last Saturday, sparking outrage and disbelief over how such a high-profile prisoner – known for socializing with powerful people including Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton – could have gone unwatched.

Epstein – who was charged with sexually abusing numerous underage girls over several years – had been placed on Suicide Watch last month, after he was found on his cell floor last month with bruises on his neck, as a result of a suicidal attempt.

The Department of Justice has launched an investigation into how Epstein was able to die in New York’s highly secure Metropolitan Correctional Centre.
