NEW YORK: US financier Jeffrey Epstein, indicted on fees he trafficked underage ladies, dedicated suicide in jail, US information media reported Saturday.
Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, had pleaded not responsible to fees of intercourse trafficking involving dozens of underage ladies as younger as 14, from at the least 2002 to 2005.
The fees had been introduced greater than a decade after Epstein pleaded responsible to state prostitution fees in Florida.

Final month, Epstein was discovered unconscious in his cell with accidents to his neck, media shops reported, citing unidentified sources.
