Jeffrey Epstein: FBI launches investigation into death amid growing conspiracy theories

The FBI has opened a formal investigation into the death of the US financier Jeffrey Epstein, who’s thought to have taken his own life while being held on sex trafficking charges.

But conspiracy theories about how he died are flourishing, fuelled in part by Donald Trump who retweeted one totally unsubstantiated post blaming the Clintons.

Meanwhile Epstein’s accusers have expressed their outrage that he won’t face justice.
