Jeffrey Epstein Dies in Apparent Suicide

Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in an apparent suicide in his Manhattan jail cell on Saturday. The convicted sex offender reportedly hung himself at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, according to NBC News. Epstein was transported to a nearby hospital where he reportedly went into cardiac arrest. On July 6, Epstein was charged for one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors between 2002 and 2005. He was being held in the Manhattan prison awaiting his court date and was denied bail. If convicted, Epstein would have faced a maximum of 45 years in prison. His death comes days after L Brands’ chairman, Leslie Wexner, claimed that the two had a falling out because Epstein misappropriated over $ 46 million from him and his family. The two were closely linked until the late aughts, with Epstein later taking ownership of Wexner’s Manhattan home on East 71st Street, the same residence that prosecutors demanded Epstein forfeit.

L Brands’ Les Wexner Claims Jeffrey Epstein Embezzled Over $46 Million

L Brands’ chief executive officer Leslie Wexner has opened up about the cause of his fallout with convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein: embezzlement. In a letter to the members of his Wexner Foundation on Wednesday obtained by CNBC, Wexner explained that Epstein misappropriated over $ 46 million from him and his family. “I am embarrassed that, like so many others, I was deceived by Mr. Epstein,” Wexner wrote. “I know now that my trust in him was grossly misplaced and I deeply regret having ever crossed his path.” Wexner went on to explain that he discovered Epstein had been misappropriating funds after the two ended their professional relationship and friendship in 2007. He wrote that he was able to recover some of the embezzled funds through a $ 46 million contribution that Epstein made to Wexner’s YLK Charitable Fund the following year. “As the story has unfolded further, and the extent of the pain caused by Mr. Epstein continues to grow, I have spent time reflecting and searching for answers as to how this could have happened,” he continued. “My heart goes out to each person who has suffered unthinkable pain and I pray for their healing.” Wexner has been under fire for his former links to
