    Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein died overnight in an apparent suicide, law enforcement sources told the Post Saturday.

    A gurney carrying a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7:30 a.m. and headed to New York Downtown Hospital. A call for a reported cardiac arrest came in at 6:38 a.m., Fire Department sources said.

    Two weeks ago, Epstein, 66, was placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.

    The multimillionaire financier was being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges.

    Epstein was busted July 6 over the alleged sexual abuse of dozens of young girls in his Upper East Side townhouse and his waterfront mansion in Palm, Beach, Florida, between 2002 and 2005. He pleaded not guilty and faced up to 45 years in prison.

    Thousands of documents unsealed Friday in connection with a defamation case against the perv’s alleged recruiter revealed dozens of high-profile names that a self-identified victim, Virginia Giuffre, said she was forced to perform sex acts with, from former Maine Sen. George Mitchell and ex-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, money manager Glenn Dubin and MIT professor Marvin Minksy.

    Evidently, not a very effective suicide watch protocol.

    Dunno the validity, but the article is making the rounds.

    At least it wasn't suicide by multiple gunshots to the back of the head.

    Interesting that the NY Post seems to have beat everyone else to the story.

    Expect Virginia Giuffre to have an unfortunate accident soon.

    Daily Mail seems to have picked up the story. Also on Drudge.

    And Fox.

    "Suicide Watch" must mean "let's watch him commit suicide". No tears, good riddance. Only thing left to decide, is if the wood chipper is still needed.

    I'd still measure the pulse of the corpse. Epstein's lawyers just can't allow him to die.

    Very disturbing.

    If this does not make you cynical about the rotten-to-the-core system I don't know what will.

    Lots of powerful people like Bill Clinton breathing a sigh of relief.

    I agree, if he actually did off himself, they better put a real suicide watch on his attorney's. I hope they didn't start spending all that money too soon. :)

    well, when it came out the Chelsea Clinton was a good freind of Epstiens wife. and Prince Edwards involvement along with a couple of retired Senators and govenors you knew it wouldn't be long. I just wonder if he tied his hands behind his back first (sac)..

    Maybe he wanted it to be his choice rather than Hillary's.

    You beat me to it by a half hour.

    Normally, I would say rest in peace, but my wishes for this scumbag are the exact opposite.

    It sure would be nice if the public knew what Slick Willie was doing on Epstein's Pedo-Whore Island on the many occasions that he visited.

    We don't know it was a suicide or a choice!

    When you possess a "client list" as he did (and the accusers, too),
    it's reasonable to expect a shorter longevity.

    People can be bought to do things, and they can get to you even in prisons.
    Prison workers get small salaries from the gov't. Hitting the Epstein lottery is a big windfall for them. What's to lose ?

    In the first thread on Epstein, I think I called it before the end of August... Of course we all know it would happen. Arkancide was definitely in his future.
