Leer en español: Hallan muerto en su celda al millonario Jeffrey Epstein


The 66-year-old millionaire Jeffrey Epstein, accused of being involved in a plot of child abuse and sexual exploitation, was found dead this Saturday in his cell, in a federal prison in Manhattan, in New York, The New York Times reported.

Epstein, who was arrested at the beginning of last July, was found hanged in his cell around 07.30, local time (11.30 GMT), says the Times.

New York emergency services received a jail call about a possible case of heart failure.

Last July, Epstein was already found unconscious in his cell in Manhattan with marks on his neck and authorities were investigating whether it had already been a suicide attempt.

The financial magnate has already faced accusations of this kind in Florida, but in 2008 he reached an unofficial agreement with the Prosecutor to close the investigation, which, if found guilty, could have brought him a life sentence.

Last Friday a judge of the Manhattan Court of Appeals ordered that hundreds of documents on Epstein be published, which belonged to a parallel case closed against a woman who was allegedly her "recruiter."
