The official statement wasted few words, and it was far from clear that it would calm the storm of conspiracy theories swirling around the multimillionaire's death.

Two weeks before Epstein died, he was found lying in the fetal position in his cell, with marks on his neck, NBC 4 reported at the time. Clinton and Trump both said they had not seen Epstein in years when new charges were brought against him last month.

Experts say the injury can be associated with suicide or strangulation.
