UPDATE: Jeffrey Epstein May Have Been Assaulted in Prison — Found in Fetal Position –Inmate Being Questioned
Accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, a close friend to Bill Clinton, was found injured in his jail cell in New York City after a possible suicide.
Sources say it may have been an attempted hanging.
Epstein is an accused pedophile. He is a close friend of Bill Clinton who flew on his plane the Lolita Express 27 times.
ALMOST EVERY TIME that Clinton was on the plane via the pilot logs there were underage girls on the plane.
Epstein allegedly paid girls as young as 14 to have sex with him at his Upper East Side home and his estate in Palm Beach, Florida, between 2002 and 2005.
The latest update on this story is that Epstein may have been assaulted.
Epstein was found in a fetal position.
A fellow inmate is being questioned.
Epstein, who was arrested in early July on federal charges, was on the floor of his cell in a fetal position when he was discovered, sources told NBC. He was semi-conscious and had marks on his neck when he was found.
Epstein may have tried to hang himself in the lower Manhattan lockup, according to sources who spoke with WNBC-TV.
But another source said Epstein’s injuries were not serious, and raised the possibility that he may have used the incident to try obtain a transfer from the jail.
A fourth source who spoke with NBC said that officials have not ruled out the chance that Epstein was assaulted in the Metropolitan Correctional Center.
Another inmate in that jail, where Epstein is being held without bail, has been questioned about the incident.
