Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein attempts suicide in jail cell

Jeffrey Epstein has been found injured in the fetal position in his New York jail cell in what has been described as a possible suicide attempt or assault.

The 66-year-old, who is being held in custody ahead of his trial for s*x trafficking, was said to be semi-conscious with neck injuries when he was found in Manhattan's Metropolitan Correctional Center.

Witnesses told RadarOnline that Epstein was 'blue in the face' and was 'sprawled out on the floor' as prison guards rushed to treat him in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

At one point, he is said to have lost consciousness before he was eventually carried away.

Sources told NBC News that Epstein was found in his cell in the fetal position with marks on his neck after possible trying to hang himself.

Investigators are looking into whether it was a suicide attempt by Epstein or if the billionaire financier was attacked.

Due to him being in federal custody, Epstein is locked up in his cell for about 23 hours each day. The jail is the same facility where notorious Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán was held during his trial.
