Serious questions surround monitoring of Epstein in prison For one of the most high-profile inmates in America to find a way to kill himself in his jail cell is shocking enough. When that inmate had apparently just been removed from "suicide watch" after attempting to take his own life weeks before, it is almost beyond belief.

Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to prostitution-related charges involving underage girls, in exchange for the Justice Department's agreement not to prosecute him on similar charges.

He served 13 months in jail and agreed to register as a sex offender under the 2008 plea deal, which is now widely seen as too lenient.

His lawyers had argued the agreement barred federal prosecutors in Manhattan from pursuing the latest case over the same conduct.

Accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found injured and lying in the fetal position in his jail cell late Wednesday night (Jul. 24) in a possible suicide attempt ahead of the disgraced billionaire's underage sex trafficking trial , according to reports .

Epstein had also been appealing Mr Berman's denial of his request to remain under house arrest in his $77m (£64m) mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side while awaiting trial.

His death comes as court papers were unsealed in which a woman claimed Prince Andrew had touched her breast at Epstein's Manhattan mansion.

Buckingham Palace said claims made by Johanna Sjoberg against Prince Andrew, a former friend of Epstein, were categorically untrue.

Epstein also had links with Donald Trump. Video of them together at a party in 1992 emerged in June, and they were pictured together five years later too.

There is no suggestion that there was any criminal wrongdoing taking place at the party and Mr Trump now claims he never liked Epstein.
