Steven Hoffenberg, one of Jeffrey Epstein’s associates and one-time owner of The New York Post, has died at the age of seventy-seven.
Authorities were called to Hoffenberg’s home in Derby, Connecticut, where they found him lying on the floor of his bedroom…

He’s remembered as an infamous criminal.
Epstein was first convicted for a range of s*x crimes in 2005 when he pleaded guilty to molesting an underage girl.
His crimes were far-reaching and varied…
But, by 2008, he has been convicted for running an underage prostitution ring connected to a number of high-powered individuals.
Epstein served just thirteen months for this conviction.
He was arrested again for s*x trafficking of minors in the states of Florida and New York and was held awaiting trial in a New York prison.
Epstein has managed to get away with vile, criminal acts for the majority of his life, most likely a result of his money and social clout. For his victims, there was finally hope of justice being done.
And many believed his conviction could uncover other high-profile and wealthy s*x offenders.
Epstein has numerous friends in high places, and one of those friends was formerly in one of the highest places possible — sitting in the Oval Office. Epstein has had a long friendship with Donald Trump, and his convictions for these horrific crimes have not reflected well on the former President.
And, even more controversially, Prince Andrew from the British Royal Family.
Of course, all of Epstein’s high-profile friends have denied any involvement in this scandal, but people aren’t too convinced.
Epstein died in prison.
He was found dead in his Manhattan prison cell, apparently as a result of hanging.
Though his death is subject to conspiracy theories.
But because of the nature of his crimes, plus the connections Epstein had to the political and social elite, some have other suspicions about what really happened.
Here’s some background information…
Epstein was undoubtedly close to Donald Trump — who, in the past, had said that Epstein “likes beautiful women as much as I do.”
Some of his associates are involved in the conspiracy theories surrounding his death.
The fact he was about to take the stand — and clearly had information about other participants in his crimes — made some believe his death was just a little too convenient.
There appears to be a number of things that just simply don’t add up…
The idea that a man could manage to commit suicide while under tight surveillance already seems unlikely to some.
A documentary shone a light on the whole thing.
Progress seemed to be sparse, but then, the release of Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich on Netflix catapulted the whole thing back into the spotlight.
There were harrowing tales told by victims.
And they each detailed similar, yet horrifying tales of being s*xually assaulted and r*ped while giving Epstein and his friends “massages.”
Since Epstein’s death, more and more bizarre news about him has surfaced….
Including the fact that a certain celebrity used to visit Epstein in prison before his untimely death.
Model and pilot Nadia Marcinkova was allowed to visit him around ninety times while he was in a Florida jail for solicitation of a minor, a report said Monday.
Marcinkova — whom Epstein allegedly “purchased” from her family and brought to the US around 2001 at age fifteen, bragging that she was “his Yugoslavian s*x slave” — was allowed into the Palm Beach County Jail in 2008 while he was doing time for soliciting s*x from a minor, the Daily Mail said, citing local sheriff’s office visitor logs.
Marcinkova was in her early twenties by then…
But jail officials should have been aware of accusations that Epstein allegedly s*xually abused her while she was underage because the details were in a previous police report.
The Post documented through court papers that Marcinkova visited Epstein fifty-four times while he was behind bars.
But the Daily Mail said it had logs showing the tally hovered around ninety, although the woman’s last name was spelled as Marcorkona.
The first name was the same.
Marcinkova spent her earlier years with Epstein, with other girls who also were below the age of consent, some of his victims told investigators.
One of the girls told police that Epstein would direct her and Marcinkova during their s*x sessions which would result in hours of abuse and humiliation.
Marcinkova, now thirty-three, was named as a potential co-conspirator in Epstein’s s*x crimes at one point but has never been charged with anything.
She went to work in real estate after Epstein and is now a commercial pilot and flight instructor who is believed to have changed her name.
And now, one of Epstein’s associates has been found dead.
The Daily Mail reports that it was Maria Farmer, the first woman to report Epstein to the police, who called the police asking them to check on Steven Hoffenberg.
She said he was diagnosed with Omicron a month ago and was struggling to recover.
Hoffenburg’s body was discovered at around 8 pm on Tuesday.
His body, however, was so decomposed that police believe he died weeks ago.
Medical examiners are using his dental records to come up with an identification.
“Every indication is that it is Mr. Hoffenberg,’” a Derby Police Department spokesman said.
“There’s nothing to suggest that it isn’t. We believe it’s him. We’re just waiting for dental records.”
Hoffenberg was once Epstein’s boss and claimed that the disgraced financier was an accomplice in a half-billion-dollar Ponzi scheme he operated through his Towers Financial Corp.
As a result, Hoffenberg pleaded guilty back in 1995 and was sentenced to twenty years in prison.
While Hoffenburg was spending his time in prison, Epstein allegedly s*xually abused teenage girls with the help of Ghislaine Maxwell who is currently spending the rest of her days inside a prison cell.
After completing his sentence, Hoffenberg reached out to Epstein’s victims and joined them in their fight for justice.
As of now, the cause of death remains unconfirmed, but there were no visible signs of trauma to his body, a police source said.
