After much speculation, it is reported that Jeff Epstein attempted to hang himself in jail before he was interrupted by a guard.

The accused sex trafficker was found in his jail cell earlier this week with marks on his neck, but Radar Online is reporting that he, in fact, had attempted to kill himself and that it was not an assault from another inmate.

“Jeffrey did attempt suicide by hanging,” the source told Radar. “He was in the act of trying to take his own life when the guard found him.”

The source has also denied claims that the attack was staged so that Epstein would be moved to another facility.

“It wasn’t staged, and he wasn’t attacked by another inmate,” the source added.

“He was alone in his cell and was found by a guard as Jeffrey was attempting to hang himself. Any talk that he did this to get a transfer is also misinformed.”
