Jeffrey Epstein hanged himself with a bed sheet wrapped around his neck weeks after RadarOnline.com exclusively reported his first suicide attempt.

The convicted pedophile reportedly was in his prison cell in the Metropolitan Correction Center on Saturday, August 10, when he was found with the bed sheet tied around his neck and tied to the top bunk of his bed according to the New York Post. He was reportedly kneeling toward the floor when he was found dead.

Before he died by suicide, Epstein concocted a scheme to avoid the cell in his last days before his death.

According to an insider, Epstein “hated being in his prison cell and was paying his lawyers to be with him for most of the day since he arrived.”

Epstein’s hours with the lawyers was legal and the disgraced billionaire spent the time in the prison’s attorney-client room instead of locked up in his cell.

“Lawyers can stay for as long as they want, and Jeffrey was basically paying them to keep him company and from having to go back to the cell,” the source explained to Radar.

Epstein was awaiting trial on multiple sex-trafficking charges.

“One of my clients is extremely upset that this happened,” Lisa Bloom, a lawyer for two of Epstein’s victims, previously told Radar of the businessman’s suicide.

“Prison officials failed her because he needed to be kept alive.”
