The notorious and politically connected Jewish child trafficker and rapist Jeffrey Epstein has been placed on suicide watch after he was found unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck according to a report:
Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found in his cell on Tuesday nearly unconscious with injuries to his neck after a possible suicide attempt, sources said.
Epstein was discovered by guards sprawled out on the floor at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, where he’s being held without bail on sex-trafficking charges, according to law enforcement sources.
The multimillionaire financier was taken to a nearby hospital.
It’s unclear how Epstein suffered his neck injuries.
Investigators believe Epstein may have done it to himself on purpose, possibly as a ploy to get transferred out of the jail, sources said.
It was also possible that Epstein was attacked by another inmate, the sources added.
Epstein was busted July 6 on sex-trafficking and conspiracy charges for allegedly sexually abusing underage girls at his Manhattan townhouse and his $12 million estate in Palm Beach, Fla., between 2002 and 2005.
