Jeffrey Epstein Found Injured in NYC Jail Cell After Possible Suicide Attempt: Sources

Published

Accused pedophile and wealthy Manhattan financier Jeffrey Epstein was found injured and in a fetal position inside his cell at a New York City jail, according to sources close to the investigation.

Epstein, who is being held in Metropolitan Correctional Center as he awaits his trial for conspiracy and sex trafficking, was found semi-conscious with marks on his neck, two sources told News 4. Investigators are trying to piece together exactly what happened, saying details remain murky.

Two sources tell News 4 that Epstein may have tried to hang himself, while a third source cautioned that the injuries were not serious and questioned if Epstein might be using it as a way to get a transfer.

A fourth source said an assault has not been ruled out, and that another inmate was questioned. The inmate who investigators have talked to in Lower Manhattan facility has been identified as Nicholas Tartaglione, according to two sources. Tartaglione is a former police officer in Westchester County who was arrested in December 2016 and accused of killing four men in an alleged cocaine distribution conspiracy, then burying their bodies in his yard in Otisville in Orange County, according to court records.

Epstein and Tartaglione were cellmates, two sources tell NBC 4 New York. Tartaglione’s attorney confirmed they shared the same cell block.

Subsequently, on Thursday, a senior official reiterated that all three theories — attempted suicide, try for transfer and attack by inmate — are still in play.

Sources told News 4 investigators questioned Tartaglione, and the former cop claimed not to have seen anything and insisted he did not touch Epstein, sources said.
The attorney for Tartaglione denied all the claims that his client attacked the financier, saying his client and Epstein get along well. The attorney added Epstein was seen today and appears to be fine.

“They are in the same unit and doing well,” said Bruce Barket, an attorney for Tartaglione. He said any claim that Tartaglione might have assaulted Epstein “is absolutely not true.”

Barket said Tartaglione and Epstein have been complaining about conditions inside the MCC including flooding, rodents and bad food.

Epstein is now on suicide watch inside MCC, according to two sources. Attorneys for Epstein did not immediately return calls for comment.

A spokesperson for the Bureau of Prisons confirmed to News 4 that Epstein was treated inside an MCC infirmary and not taken to a hospital. He currently remains inside MCC.

“As with all inmates, for privacy and security reasons, we do not share information on an inmate’s medical status or their conditions of confinement,” the spokesperson said.
Spokesmen for the U.S. Marshals and U.S. Attorney’s office declined to comment.

Lisa Bloom, a lawyer who represents some of the Epstein accusers, tweeted Thursday that neither her clients nor she “wish suicide upon anyone, not even a recidivist predator who has tricked and hurt so many women.”

“We want him to stay alive to face the justice and accountability which is so long overdue,” Bloom tweeted. “And it’s coming.”
Gloria Allred, who is also representing multiple Epstein accusers, echoed Bloom’s statements, saying his alleged victims have been waiting for the day when he may be held accountable for what they accuse him of doing over the years.

“We don’t know at this point whether his injuries are caused by a suicide attempt or an attack by others. However he sustained his injuries, we want him to be forced to face a jury and respond to the serious charges that he is facing,” Allred said. “Justice for victims whose young lives he has impacted is long overdue.”

Most recently in the sex trafficking case against Epstein, the wealthy financier had been denied bail on July 18 following a bombshell search-warrant revelation that Epstein had a fake passport and piles of cash and diamonds stashed in a safe inside his $77 million Manhattan home.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman cited risk of flight and danger to the community in his decision against Epstein, a registered sex offender and private-island owner who faces new federal charges of exploiting dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida in the early 2000s. That meant Epstein would remain behind bars pending trial (a date for the start of which has yet to be set).

Defense attorneys filed their notice of appeal to the bail ruling on Monday.

Epstein has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and sex trafficking charges brought by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan. The financier’s next court date is set for July 31.

Meet Narwhal, the Rescue Puppy with a Tail Growing out of His Forehead

Published

There’s a 10-week-old puppy in Missouri with a tail growing out of his forehead.

Yes, his forehead. No, it doesn’t wag. And, appropriately, his name is Narwhal.

It’s me Narwhal!! I don’t understand what viral is but my foster mama said my story being viral helps ALL our special…

Well, his full name is “Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn,” according to dog rescue nonprofit organization Mac’s Mission, which took him in after he was discovered last Saturday. He was found in the freezing cold, with what appears to be the beginnings of frostbite on one paw.

Unlike an actual narwhal whale, which has a protruding canine tooth that resembles a tusk, the tail on Narwhal’s forehead is short and stubby, sprouting right between his eyes — and flops from side to side when he plays. He has a normal tail, too, this one is just extra.

Workers at Mac’s Mission, which specializes in special needs dogs who had been abused or born with defects, say he’s recovering quickly, with the frostbite healing.

“He seems completely healthy other than some usual puppy worms he got meds for,” said the organization in a Facebook post.

Just another video of our narwhal the magical fuzzy unicorn puppy because we think he is amazing. (We are not accepting applications for him right now until we are very certain his unicorn horn is not going to have a growth spurt and become an issue) (no it does not wag) (yes he is keeping it) (yes he is amazingly awesome!!) Love,MacKeeperOfTheUnicorns

Vets took X-ray scans, which showed the tail isn’t connected to anything. It has no real use, as far as they can tell, but it also doesn’t cause him any pain, and there’s no medical reason to remove it — so the forehead tail is here to stay. “The unicorn face tail does not bother Narwhal, and he never slows down just like any normal puppy,” said the Facebook post.

He was found with another dog, which rescue workers speculate may be his father. This older dog, who has been named Poppa Smurf, is a Daschund Terrier mix — so they assume Narwhal may have some Daschund in him as well.

It’s not clear what happened to the two of them before they were discovered, but a spokesperson from Mac’s Mission told CNN Narwhal is from rural Missouri in the Midwest, and loves to play — and now, he has thousands of fans online, after his special tail catapulted him to internet fame.

The rush of the online attention has been “crazy,” the spokesperson, adding that the staff “feel like we’re in a dream.”

He’s not yet ready for adoption, Mac’s Mission said online — but that hasn’t stopped Narwhal’s fans from wanting to take him home. The organization has already received over 50 adoption applications for him, a spokesperson told CNN.

Narwhal will likely be listed for adoption once he’s older and has gone through more medical procedures like vaccinations. The staff says they also want to monitor his unicorn horn a little while longer to make sure it doesn’t grow or become a problem.

“Everyone is super interested in him,” the spokesperson said — but “we are hopeful they are seeing the other available dogs as well!”

Brooklyn boy, 13, home safe after he goes missing for a week

BROOKLYN — Ade Prince, the 13-year-old Boy Scout and choir boy who didn’t come home from school a week ago, was found safe Monday night after a wild goose chase that started near a Flatbush apartment and ended near the Barclay Center in Brooklyn.

Some neighborhood kids saw a missing flyer posted in a park near P.S. 6 on Snyder Avenue and confronted a boy Prince was hanging around with in recent months.

Prince had left for his charter school a week ago and never came home.

His parents said although he was a loving and respectful son, he had started staying out late sometimes in the last eight months—and one time, disappeared for two days.

Prince is not a big 13 year old and looked younger than his years.

Amazon Black Friday deals 2019: the best offers and discounts

Published

black friday

Black Friday 2019 falls on Friday 29 November but, as with every year now, many of the best Black Friday deals have already started to appear. And when it comes to the size and duration of the Black Friday sales it’s hard to get bigger than Amazon.

Every year, Amazon breathlessly announces ahead of the sales event that THIS year will be its “biggest ever” event with thousands of discounts across products in its various departments.

For 2019, it’s making that “biggest ever” promise again, confirming that the Amazon.co.uk 2019 Black Friday sale will run for eight days from 00:01 on Friday 22 November until 23:59 on Friday 29 November. We assume those days will also apply to Amazon sales in other countries.

Another Black Friday tradition is that Amazon offers a mix of multi-day discounts along with “Lightning Deals”, which are only available for a limited amount of time – or until the product sells out. This will happen again for 2019, and as happened last year, Amazon Prime members will get early access to the Black Friday 2019 Lightning Deals.

Prime members also get access to grocery delivery service Amazon Fresh while new for this year, Fresh on Demand means UK Prime members in select postcodes pay just £2.99 per delivery on orders over £40 (free for orders over £120), or they can subscribe to Fresh Add-On of £3.99 per month for unlimited free deliveries.

There are also more ways to shop this Black Friday, including AR View, Showroom and Discover. AR View lets you see products in your home before you buy using augmented reality technology. Showroom lets you virtually stage Amazon furnishings in 3D in a living room setting. And Discover lets you browse items and refine your selection based on your personal preferences.

Looking back to 2018, we know that the Black Friday sales period was a massive success for Amazon: the retailer says that Cyber Monday 2018 was the single biggest shopping day in the company’s history. In the US, over five popular shopping days starting with Thanksgiving on the Thursday and continuing through Cyber Monday, Amazon says it broke records as customers purchased “millions more products over the five day period vs. the same period last year.”

That record was then shattered by Amazon Prime Day 2019 in July when Prime members worldwide purchased more than 175 million items throughout Prime Day, making it the largest shopping event in Amazon history.

In the UK, Amazon tells us that in the first eight hours of Black Friday 2018 (00:01 – 08:00), customers were shopping at record levels, ordering more than 100,000 toys and 60,000 beauty products during this time.

For Black Friday 2019, Amazon is adhering to the above formula of multi-day discounts and Lightning Deals but promising “more great offers than ever.” (Well, it wouldn’t promise less.)

WHEN DOES THE AMAZON BLACK FRIDAY SALE START?

The Amazon.co.uk Black Friday sale will run for eight days, starting at 00:01 on Friday 22 November and running until 23:59 on Friday 29 November. Presumably it will then turn into a Cyber Weekend / Cyber Monday sale for another few days.

This eight-day Black Friday sale follows the same pattern as last year: in 2018, Amazon kicked off its Black Friday Week Sale on Friday 16 November, a week ahead of Black Friday itself.

As well as the main Black Friday sale, it would not surprise us at all to see Amazon run some sort of ‘Countdown to Black Friday’ or ‘Early Black Friday Deals’ event starting on Friday 15 November, then the confirmed ‘Black Friday Week Sale’ starting on Friday 22 November, and then the big ‘Amazon Black Friday sale’ itself which will kick off at 1 minute past midnight on Friday 29 November 2019.

Once that sale is over, we’d expect the Cyber Monday sale to begin and run until midnight on Cyber Monday.

And then on the following Tuesday 3 December, it’s likely that Amazon will kick off its ‘Countdown To Christmas Sale’ which will feature a range of deals right up to midnight on Christmas Eve.

But of all these sales and mini sales, it’s likely that the BEST sale prices will fall in the four-day Black Friday to Cyber Monday period…
