Jeffrey Epstein found dead in prison ahead of sex trafficking trial

Millionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein has died in prison in New York in an apparent suicide while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

The 66-year-old was found dead in his cell at the Manhattan Correctional Centre on Saturday morning, sources said, and the medical examiner's office confirmed his death.

He had pleaded not guilty to the allegations and would face up to 45 years in prison if convicted.

Epstein's arrest last month saw separate investigations launched into how authorities handled his case initially when similar charges were brought against him more than a decade ago.
