Jeffrey Epstein: how much do we really know?

The prison death of a well-connected sex offender has led to wild conspiracy theories.

The financier Jeffrey Epstein was in a Manhattan prison awaiting trial for sex trafficking when he was found dead in his cell last weekend. The multi-millionaire moved in the richest social circles with people like Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew. But with his death, apparently by suicide, how much can we really know? And will his victims ever find justice? Nada Tawfik, the BBC reporter in New York following the case, tells us the details of Epstein’s life and crimes. And we hear from Spencer Kuvin, an attorney who represented some of Epstein’s victims.
