Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that Epstein’s body was discovered in his jail cell around 7:30 a.m. at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC).
Many immediately began questioning the details surrounding his death after Epstein was reportedly put on suicide watch in late July following a possible suicide attempt.
