Jeffrey Epstein signed a will two days before killing himself in his New York jail cell, US media reports say.
Court papers filed last week in the US Virgin Islands valued Epstein’s estate at more than $577 million but listed no details of beneficiaries, the Associated Press reported.
The will, details of which were first reported by the New York Post, directs Epstein’s assets to be put into trust.
