Epstein Found Dead
Jeffrey Epstein, the infamous multimillionaire financier facing a horrific laundry list of crimes including alleged sexual sexual trafficking and abuse, was found dead in his jail cell in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan on Saturday morning.
A Victim Speaks Out
One of Epstein's victims, Jennifer Arroz, who alleges that he raped her when she was 15, released a statement following his death.
"I am angry Jeffrey Epstein won’t have to face his survivors of his abuse in court. We have to live with the scars of his actions for the rest of our lives, while he will never face the consequences of the crimes he committed, the pain and trauma he caused so many people. Epstein is gone, but justice must still be served. I hope the authorities will pursue and prosecute his accomplices and enablers, and ensure redress for his victims."

While Epstein may be dead before he faced his trial on sex trafficking charges, representatives from his accusers assure people that this civil case isn't over. According to Lisa Bloom, who represents many of his victims,
"We would have preferred he lived to face justice. We're just getting started.
