Jeffrey Epstein Reportedly Found Injured in Manhattan Jail Cell
HandoutAccused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was found injured and in a fetal position in his cell at a Manhattan jail on Tuesday, according to sources cited by NBC News. Investigators are reportedly trying to get to the bottom of what happened, but the wealthy sex offender was said to have been semi-conscious when he was found. After initially being put into the general population at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, Epstein had been moved to solitary protective custody after other inmates had threatened him, a source familiar with his conditions had previously told The Daily Beast.Two sources cited by NBC said he may have attempted to hang himself, while another source suggested the injuries were so minor that he may have simply been trying to get himself transferred. An assault has also not been ruled out, with a fourth source saying a former police officer serving time on drug and murder charges has been questioned. The New York Post, quoting sources, said Epstein had injuries to his neck.Judge Who Denied Bail to Jeffrey Epstein Calls Him ‘Uncontrollable’ and a ‘Danger’Epstein’s lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.But Bruce Barket, an attorney for another inmate on the same unit, told The Daily Beast that his law partner saw Epstein and his attorneys at the MCC on Wednesday morning “and he looked fine.”Barket said a report that his client, Nick Tartaglione, had been questioned about a possible assault on Epstein was inaccurate. He alleged that his name was leaked by someone at the jail in retaliation for complaints about “hellhole” conditions there.“They know each other and have gotten along well,” Barket said of his client and Epstein.Epstein has been locked up at the MCC since he was arrested July 6 after arriving back in the United States from France.He asked to be released on bail and put on house arrest at his $77 million Manhattan mansion, offering to pay for security cameras and armed guards and to let a “trustee” live there with him.But U.S. District Judge Richard Berman shot down the request earlier this week, finding that Epstein was a flight risk and unable to control his sexual urges. Epstein’s team has since filed papers to appeal that decision.Barket said both his client and Epstein are in the Special Housing Unit, where restrictions compound what he described as “inhumane” conditions across the entire MCC—including insect and rodent infestation, dirty linens, and broken equipment.“The whole place is a disaster from top to bottom,” Barket said.
