A report has shed new light on the mysterious injury alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein suffered in his prison cell.

According to NBC News, the day before Epstein was found in the fetal position with marks around his neck, the former financier was served legal documents alleging that he forcefully raped a woman, Jennifer Araoz, 32, in 2001, when she was only 15.

Araoz intends to sue Epstein in August on claims of sexual assault, battery, and rape. She was a high school student at the time of the alleged assault.

“Jennifer endured unspeakable abuse by Jeffrey Epstein and his enablers, who robbed her of a piece of her childhood,” Araoz’z lawyer Daniel Kaiser said. “She brought this action to hold those responsible accountable and deliver a simple message: she’s not afraid anymore.”

Furthermore, she is requesting that Epstein submit to a deposition so that he can be questioned about the identity of a female “recruiter” who allegedly groomed Araoz to be one of the billionaire’s victims. Once this woman is identified, she will be added as a defendant to Araoz’s suit.

“He raped me, forcefully raped me,” Araoz told NBC News. “He knew exactly what he was doing… I was terrified, and I was telling him to stop. ‘Please stop.’”

Epstein, 66, has been held in a Manhattan federal prison since earlier this month.

The day after the receipt of Araoz’s document, he was found with mysterious injuries and put on suicide watch. It is still unknown if he attempted suicide, staged an attempt, or was assaulted.
