Epstein Found “Nearly Unconscious” In Prison Cell After Possible Suicide Attempt

Jeffrey Epstein has been found “nearly unconscious in a fetal position inside his New York City jail cell, according to the New York Post, citing sources close to the investigation.

The 66-year-old convicted pedophile is being held in the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in lower Manhattan pending trial. He was found semi-conscious with ‘marks on his neck,’ according to the report – which adds that investigators are still trying to figure out what happened.

As NBC New York also reports, “Two sources tell News 4 that Epstein may have tried to hang himself, while a third source cautioned that the injuries were not serious and questioned if Epstein might be using it as a way to get a transfer.”

A fourth source told the outlet that assault has not been ruled out – as investigators have questioned former Orange County police officer Nicholas Tartaglione in connection with the incident. Tartaglione was arrested in December 2016 on suspicion of killing four men in an alleged cocaine distribution conspiracy, before burying their bodies in his Otisville yard, according to court records.

Sources told News 4 investigators questioned Tartaglione, and the former cop claimed not to have seen anything and didn’t touch Epstein, sources said.

Epstein was arrested on July 6 for allegedly sex-trafficking minors, and was denied bail on July 18 by US District Judge Richard Berman after prosecutors said he poses an “extraordinary risk of flight” due to his “exorbitant wealth.” He has notified the court that he will appeal the decision.

Berman said prosecutors established a “preponderance” of evidence of Epstein being a flight risk, calling the fake Saudi passport “concerning,” and said the government also established community danger by “clear and convincing evidence” — which led to his decision to keep the financier behind bars.

Epstein’s lawyers had wanted him released on house arrest with electronic monitoring at his $77 million Manhattan mansion. They said he wouldn’t run and was willing to pledge a fortune of at least $559 million as collateral.

That said, Epstein would likely be in solitary confinement for 23 hours per day, lawyer Andrew Laufer, who has represented MCC inmates, told Reuters earlier this month.

“When you have someone that’s allegedly a sexual predator like Jeffrey Epstein, he’ll need to be in protective custody,” said Laufer.

“The sex offenders have a hard time,” said former BOP employee Jack Donson. “He’s definitely going to get ostracized.”

  1. No one saw this coming??? He can destroy many powerful lives with his testimony. I don’t think they will let that happen. I would be surprised if he makes it to trial.

      1. My very first thought. Once you’re no longer useful to the Clintons, close associates seem to meet their demise under suspicious circumstances.

    1. True Tom. We deserve to know who all is involved. The Clinton’s always have someone dying of suicide around them.

  2. I would seriously look at Bill and Hillary and their “hit squad” – they seem to have an endless list of “suicides” following them every time someone may provide evidence of their illegal activities. I would suspect the Clintons have gotten to the guards. A few million dollars from Haiti may make a guard violate his/her oath! What is amazing is most of the “suicides” are from MULTIPLE gunshots to the Back of the Head?????? But always ruled as a suicide….

    1. you sure have it in for the “poor” Clintons. the right comes down so hard on them, what are a few murders, and hundreds of millions of dollars. Both creeps belong in jail, or worse, for the rest of their lives. Maybe Obama can join them so they are not lonely. .

      1. I heard a joke some time ago. (Read if you like fantasizing about justice). Bill Clinton dies and goes to Hell (well, what would you expect?). Once there, the demon that met him at the fiery gates told him he has a choice as to the cell he will live in for the rest of eternity (he’s given three choices). He’s also told that whatever cell he takes, one soul who is currently there gets freedom to choose another cell. In the first cell he sees, there are a bunch of demons torturing evil souls with pitchforks. Bill answers, “No Way!” In the second cell, he sees a bunch of demons dipping poor evil souls into hot, boiling oil. Bill says, “NO!!!” Then he sees the third cell. Monica is giving Jesse Jackson a “Lewinski”. Well, Bill thinks this looks pretty good, so he says, “I’ll spend eternity HERE!” The demon then says, “Okay Monica, you’re free to go now.” – sorry, I couldn’t resist!

  3. A large contingent of Powerful Perverts don’t want to see Epstein Expose them to get a “Deal”and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if “You know Who Is involved !”

  4. So true. There are so many powerful people tied into him. Clinton’s are great for this type of stuff. Accidental death, suicide. Before he can leak or tell who was involved. He will be dead.

  5. SOMEBODY PROTECT THIS MAN! Don’t let the Clinton’s people near him or near a guard or near the property at all. The big names he knows and has things on are probably all hiring big time lawyers as we read.

    1. IN MY OPINION, LET THEM ( OR HIM ) TAKE THIS SCUM BAGS LIFE! ONE LESS CRIMINAL TO FEED.
      OUR PRISONS ARE OVER BOOKED AS IT IS, SO LET’S BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY FOR THOSE WHO NEED EXECUTING, AND LET MOTHER NATURE HELP THOSE WHO SHOULD BE EXECUTED BUT THE LAW IS ON THEIR SIDE! EITHER WAY THE GOOD GUYS WIN……IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE WE HAVE SEEN THE DEATH PENALTY FOR MURDERERS, SO NOW WE SHOULD INCLUDE RAPISTS , PEDOPHILES AND DEMOCRATS!

  6. The Clintons and others with money and power will make sure that he has a suicide while in prison and so he can’t expose their perverted excursions on pedophile island

  7. Well, one more was added to the Clinton death list today. A Marine that was exposing the Clintons was found dead under suspicious circumstances today.

  8. That was as expected! They can’t let him go to trial because he could expose many famous and powerful people! He must live to testify and this evil must be exposed!!

  9. Put Epstein in the general population and he won’t survive one week. Folks: the filing against him is much worse than being reported–importing little girls for sex.

  10. There are a lot of powerful people who rode the Lolita express who would prefer to see Jeffery NEVER testify.

  11. He needs to be transferred to Gitmo where he will be under Military guards and that way he will be safe until his trail.

  12. WHY SAFE! LET THE SOB DIE! IT IS CALLED KARMA! IT MAY COME IN THE FORM OF THE CLINTONS, OR GUARDS, OR OTHER INMATES, BUT IT WOULD BE JUSTICE FOR ALL ! ONE LESS TO FEED!

    1. If he dies before his trial, all of the other pedophiles will not be exposed and they will go scot – free! I want everyone that was on the Lolita Express and Pedophile Island found guilty and thrown in prison!

  13. Besides BOTH Clintons were frequent guests, Prince Andrew apparently likes little girls too. Funniest part is Killary went there too, hmmmmm.

  14. “…investigators have questioned former Orange County police officer Nicholas Tartaglione in connection with the incident. Tartaglione was arrested in December 2016 on suspicion of killing four men in an alleged cocaine distribution conspiracy, before burying their bodies in his Otisville yard, according to court records”….
    “The attorney for Tartaglione denied all the claims that his client attacked the financier, saying he and Epstein get along and saw each other recently. –NBC New York”

    SO WHY WAS EPSTEIN ALLOWED TO BE IN CONTACT WITH A KNOWN KILLER IN PRISON? Why wasn’t this pedophile in isolation to begin with, if he had been on “suicide watch”?
    “The sex offenders have a hard time,” said former BOP employee Jack Donson.”
    “When you have someone that’s allegedly a sexual predator like Jeffrey Epstein, he’ll need to be in protective custody,” said Laufer.”
    SOMETHING’S AWFULLY FISHY!

  15. Epstein is proof that the DOJ is STILL corrupt.
    A guy like this, that has hard evidence on multiple politicos and hollywood types, would be offered a deal right off, as well as put into protective custody.

    The fact that this guy is sitting in jail instead of sitting in a prosecutors office running down the list of slime balls, like Bang em bill, who were on his plane and island molesting underage girls.

    As many have said here…this guy will either wind up dead before any trial happens or he will be THE ONLY one to be arrested prosecuted and jailed…and the prosecutors will say there was no conclusive evidence to investigate anyone else.
    I’m sure the dvds he was reported to have had in his safe, will conveniently disappear also.

  16. Also other prisoners don’t like people who molest kids. They better keep a close eye on him. We need to know the truth. Who all is involved.
