BREAKING NEWS: Jeffrey Epstein’s death is officially ruled a suicide after medical examiner says autopsy found he hanged himself in his New York cell
Jeffrey Epstein’s prison death has officially been ruled a suicide by hanging.
The medical examiner’s office said on Friday that an autopsy and other evidence confirmed the 66-year-old hanged himself in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan last week.
The billionaire pedophile, who was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges involving underage girls, hanged himself with a bed sheet from the top set of bunks.
He was found with several broken bones in his neck when guards were doing their morning rounds last Saturday.
Conspiracy theories have been swirling in the wake of Epstein’s death as people expressed outrage and disbelief over how such a high-profile prisoner could have gone un-watched.

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 on July 23 with bruising on his neck.
Multiple sources have said Epstein was taken off the watch after about a week and put back in a high-security housing unit where he was less closely monitored but still supposed to be checked on every 30 minutes.
