Jeffrey Epstein was found on floor of his NYC cell wounded on the neck, according to NBCNewYork . According to local sources, he was found semi-conscious with marks on his neck in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan some time in the last two days.
It is unclear if he was trying to commit suicide, though sources say he may have staged an attack to look like he’d tried to hang himself. The injuries are not thought to be serious. Epstein is on suicide watch, two sources said.
An assault has not been ruled out. At least one inmate accused of murder, identified by sources as Nicholas Tartaglione, has been questioned in the matter.
Situation is breaking and will be updated as more information is released.
