The multimillionaire financier had been jailed since early July, when he pleaded not guilty to charges by NY federal prosecutors after an indictment accused him of running a sex trafficking ring of underage girls, some as young as 14.
But Epstein was found unresponsive on August 10 and soon declared dead. Federal prosecutors in NY are pursuing a parallel investigation into whether any of his associates will face charges for assisting him in what authorities say was his rampant sexual abuse of girls as young as 14.
