(Sky News) French modelling agent and Jeffrey Epstein associate Jean-Luc Brunel has been found dead in prison.
Brunel, 76, was detained in December 2020 as part of an inquiry into allegations of rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment.
The investigation was a preliminary inquiry into whether Epstein, the late financier and convicted sex offender, had committed sex crimes on French territory or against French victims.
Brunel was found in his cell in the Sante prison in Paris at around 1am on Saturday, the prosecutor’s office in the French capital said.
An investigation into the death has been opened.
