Accused pedophile and billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein was found injured and lying in a fetal position inside his cell at a New York City jail, after possibly attempting to commit suicide.

According to reports, Epstein, was found semi-conscious with marks on his neck. According to News 4, sources told them that it is likely that Epstein attempted to commit suicide, while other sources say that assault has not been ruled out.

Another inmate was questioned regarding the incident and has been identified as former cop, Nicholas Tartaglione.

Tartaglione was arrested back in December 2016 after he was accused of killing four men in an alleged cocaine distribution conspiracy. He has also been accused of burying their bodies in his yard in Orange County. Tartaglione's lawyer has denied that his client attacked Epstein and claimed that the pair get along well.

The close friend of President Trump is being held in Metropolitan Correctional Center during his trial for conspiracy and sex trafficking underage girls.
