US financier Jeffrey Epstein has been found dead in his prison cell while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

His body was discovered at 06:30 local time (10:30 GMT) on Saturday at a facility in New York.

Officials said his death was an apparent suicide. The FBI is investigating the incident.

Epstein, 66, pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking and conspiracy charges last month and was being held without bail.

"[He] was found unresponsive in his cell in the Special Housing Unit from an apparent suicide," a statement from the justice department said. 

"Mr Epstein was transported... to a local hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries, and subsequently pronounced dead," the statement added.

Last month, shortly after he was denied bail, Epstein was found semi-conscious in his cell with injuries to his neck. He was treated at a nearby hospital, reports say, before being returned to the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York.

The facility is widely considered to be one of the most secure in the country.

There are reports that Epstein was placed on suicide watch following this incident, although this has not been confirmed by officials.

Epstein's death comes a day after hundreds of pages of court documents were released that revealed new allegations against him and some of his associates.

What was he charged with?

Epstein was accused of paying girls under the age of 18 to perform sex acts at his Manhattan and Florida mansions between 2002 and 2005.

He was arrested on 6 July after landing in New Jersey on his private jet. He avoided similar charges in a controversial secret plea deal in 2008, and instead pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

That plea deal was closely scrutinised in recent weeks and, last month, US Labor Secretary Alex Acosta resigned over his role in it.

Prosecutors also accused Epstein of paying large amounts of money to two potential witnesses ahead of his trial, which was scheduled to take place next year.

He faced up to 45 years in prison if convicted.

Who was Jeffrey Epstein?

New York-born Epstein worked as a teacher before moving into finance.

Prior to the criminal cases against him, he was best known for his wealth and high-profile connections.

He was often seen socialising with the rich and powerful, including President Donald Trump, former President Bill Clinton and the UK's Prince Andrew.

In a 2002 profile in New York Magazine, Mr Trump referred to Epstein as a "terrific guy"

But he later said the pair fell out "12 or 15 years ago" and reiterated last month that he was "not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein". 

Reports of Epstein's wealth vary, with his Virgin Islands-based firm generating no public records.

History of the allegations

2002: The earliest allegations of abuse covered by the recent case take place.

October 2002: Donald Trump tells New York magazine he has known Epstein for 15 years, and that he is a "terrific guy.... it is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side".

2005: One of Epstein's alleged victims, aged 14, reports him to the police in Palm Beach - sparking the first investigation.

May 2006: Epstein is charged with unlawful sex acts with a minor. Later in the year, the case is referred to the FBI. 

2007: A plea deal is struck with Alex Acosta, the US attorney in Florida. Instead of facing federal sex-trafficking charges, he pleads guilty to two charges of soliciting prostitution, including with a minor.

June 2008: Epstein is sentenced to 13 months in prison - a private wing of a county jail. He is also allowed to leave for work - up to 12 hours a day, six days a week. He does, however, have to register as a sex offender.

April 2017: Alex Acosta is appointed labor secretary by now-President Donald Trump.

November 2018: The Miami Herald publishes its explosive investigation into Epstein, the plea deal, and the dozens of women alleging abuse.

July 2019: Epstein is arrested on new sex-trafficking charges, which he denied. Alex Acosta resigns.

My theory is that the bloke who was imminently going to end up in prison for the rest of his life for being a paedo killed himself because he was imminently going to end up in prison for the rest of his life for being a paedo.

Prepare for the conspiracy theorists pointing out Diana died in a suspicious car crash after she besmirched the Royal Family's reputation too. 

Nobody crossed Liz and Phil.

Main plot hole on that is that he was on suicide watch. That’s the point of suicide watch, can’t do a suicide.

The guards forgot to check on him and the cameras had technical difficulties. Hardly a stretch to say something ain’t right

He wasn't.  He was taken off suicide watch a few days prior but I'm sure people will work that into their chosen narrative, whatever it may be.

Just come back to say I double checked and his actual suicide watch had been finished, but he still wasn’t supposed to be left alone and guard checks were supposed to be taken out every 30 minutes because he was a suicide risk.

 He had been on suicide watch after apparently trying recently, while sharing a cell with a crooked cop (who was going down for a drug deal gone wrong.)

I think he might have been on federal suicide watch, which could be different from our version of suicide watch.

I thought the cop was inside for murders?  He also "Didn't see or hear anything" the night Epstein got neck wounds that could have come from an attempted suicide or attempted strangulation.  As I say, people will take the stuff that is their chosen end position as opposed to getting to an end position by looking at all the available information.

"He was murdered, he was on suicide watch, how convenient"

"No, he wasn't, he was taken off suicide watch"

"Right, so nobody could stop him doing it, how convenient.  The cop tried to kill him and didn't say anything the next morning, how convenient"
