Jeffrey Epstein was found unresponsive Saturday in his jail cell in Manhattan, where he was being held on federal sex trafficking charges. His death is still under investigation. The New York City medical examiner’s office says the autopsy is complete however, it needs more information before determining the cause of death. Epstein was not on suicide watch at the time of his death.
Attorney General William Barr said Saturday that he was "appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead" while in federal custody. The Justice Department's inspector general will open an investigation according to Barr.
Epstein was arrested on July 6th at an airport in New Jersey, as he returned from Paris on a private jet. He was charged with one count of sex trafficking conspiracy and one count of sex trafficking. Epstein pleaded not guilty and was denied bail.
