Apparently a drug overdose, whether intentional or accidental has not been stated. She was a very attractive young lady who looked a lot like her grandfather.

^I didn't particularly like her politics and I only recall reading one of her books (maybebeen two), but she was a good and thoughtful reader and will be remembered well past her years. I think I have a copy of Song of Solomon. I should get around to reading that.

Oh no. That sucks. He was a legend. 88 is a good run though. My condolences to his family.

Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein has died by suicide in his Manhattan jail early Saturday morning, three law enforcement officials told ABC News.

I don't buy that he committed suicide at all. If anything he was probably murdered, given how many rich people were involved with his sex trafficking. Dammit!

I think it was suicide. He was very self-indulgent and used to great luxury, so prison would have been intolerable for him.

His case was all about the fact that if you're rich enough, you can do just about whatever you want to. Let's hope that this syndrome is finally coming to an end.
