Jeffrey Epstein Suspected Of Attempting Suicide In Jail

Jeffrey Epstein was at the center of a medical emergency inside a Manhattan jail — which one source has described as an attempted suicide, can exclusively report.

A source said prison staff were seen rushing through the well-lit corridors at around 1:30 AM EST on July 23.

Screams were heard by other inmates, the source said.

A witness described Epstein, 66, as being “blue in the face” and “sprawled out on the floor” while being tended to by prison staff.

The situation was so dire, that at one point, Epstein appeared to have lost consciousness and was not responsive.

Epstein was “carried away” by staff, the source said.

Epstein’s attorneys did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

The financier is facing charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls, and has appealed a federal judge’s decision to keep him incarcerated while he awaits trial.

He has pleaded not guilty.

Epstein requested to remain under house arrest in his $77 million mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

He was denied bail.

The judge said the government had shown convincing evidence that Epstein would pose a danger to the community if freed.
