Jeffrey Epstein Signs Will 2 Days Before Death

EpsteinThe New York Post claims that it has obtained an amazing document: Jeffrey Epstein's will, signed a mere two days before he was found dead inside of his jail cell awaiting trial for federal sex trafficking charges. The New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled Friday the Epstein's death was suicide by hanging.

Documents filed in court in preparation of the criminal trial assess Epstein's worth at $577 million. The will lists his brother, Mark Epstein, as the sole heir of his estate.
