By PoliZette Staff | August 16, 2019

The chief medical examiner for New York City ruled on Friday that disgraced financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide by hanging in his prison cell last week.

Dr. Barbara Sampson, in a brief statement on Friday, said her ruling came following a “careful review of all investigative information, including complete autopsy findings, as Fox News and other outlets reported.

There are people who are immediately skeptical and suspicious of this finding.

Epstein last Saturday was found unresponsive in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC).

He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead hours later.

Epstein had been awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges involving underage girls.

He had been placed on a suicide watch in July after he was found on the floor of his cell with bruises on his neck.
