"It is a shame that Epstein will not face justice, and the survivors in this case will not have the satisfaction of his conviction", Scott Berkowitz, president of RAINN - one of the largest anti-sexual violence organizations in the nation - told CNN. He was found hanging in his cell and was rushed to New York Downtown Hospital in Manhattan, arriving at approximately 7:30 a.m., but was unable to be revived. The FBI and DoJ have launched investigations into the exact cause of death, The Guardian reported.
The somewhat reclusive Epstein splashed into the news in 2002 after a NY tabloid reported he had lent his Boeing 727 to ferry former President Bill Clinton and other notables on an AIDS relief mission to Africa. "I was reading a book on massage therapy".
But she did not refute other details of the Daily Mail story, including that Epstein hosted a dinner on his Caribbean island for President Bill Clinton shortly after Clinton left office. You'll travel. You'll make good money.
Giuffre said Maxwell instructed her to take off her clothes and give oral sex to Epstein the first time she met him after bringing her to Epstein's Florida home near Mar-a-Lago with the expectation she would be trained as a masseuse.
Virginia Giuffre's husband woke her early on Sunday morning to tell her Epstein had been found dead in his NY jail cell, where he was being held accused of orchestrating a sex trafficking ring and sexually abusing dozens of underage girls, some as young as 14. George Mitchell (ME) and former New Mexico governor and Clinton cabinet official Bill Richardson.
The two Democrat politicians named in the allegations were former Sen.

A spokeswoman for Richardson called Giuffre's allegation "completely false".
Giuffre and the others are hopeful the government will focus its investigation on those who allegedly facilitated or participated in "Epstein's horrifying sex trafficking scheme", McCawley said. He and Epstein reportedly met in the late 1990s, introduced by Maxwell, daughter of disgraced media mogul Robert Maxwell. Brunel has denied any impropriety.
The accusation is contained in documents from a 2015 defamation case, released by a judge on Friday.
In 2015, Andrew denied allegations he had sex with an under-age teenager. She has also made claims of being sexually abused by lawyer Alan Dershowitz. The suit is against Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite and one-time partner of Epstein's who Giuffre said recruited her for the ring.
"Epstein is gone, but justice must still be served", said Jennifer Araoz, who accused the of raping her when she was 15. "I hope the authorities will pursue and prosecute his accomplices and enablers, and ensure redress for his victims".
The remarks come as US Attorney General William Barr lashed out at what he described as "serious irregularities" at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre (MCC) where Epstein died.
Meanwhile, in the interview, Epstein was "at ease discussing his interest in young women", adding that "criminalizing sex with teenage girls was a cultural aberration and that at times in history it was perfectly acceptable".
