6:01 am
accused of exploiting and abusing dozens of minor girls. he had been on suicide watch in a new york city jail. you will remember he was found unresponsive in his cell last month with marks on his neck. initially investigators thought he had tried to take his own life. they were then looking into whether he was assaulted by another inmate or if he had even paid someone to beat him up. epstein's attorneys had been fighting to get him out on bail, but a judge refused. prosecutors argued the mega millionaire's lifestyle and well it made him an extreme flight risk. >> this is a major development. this case just getting under way. stephanie ramos, thanks so much. i want to bring in abc's tom yamos, anchor of "world news tonight" on the weekends who has been following this epstein saga since the beginning. tom, what are you learning this morning? >> reporter: well, this is just a stunning turn of events. as stephanie had reported, there were thoughts he had tried to commit suicide earlier and some proof of that. just really a surprise shock to
6:02 am
many of the victims who have been hoping that they would see justice. jeffrey epstein was accused of sex trafficking girls under age and he was set to go to trial later this year. he had, quote, unquote, beat this case more than ten years ago in florida, but the u.s. attorney in the southern district of new york is building a new case against jeffrey epstein, arresting him and raiding his manhattan mansion. inside they found even more evidence of pictures of underage girls, and this also follows news just yesterday of one of his associates, a separate court case, but one of epstein's accusers coming out and naming names of some very prominent businessmen and politicians who all denied they did anything inappropriate. but they start to name names. it is sort of coming out in the public, and one of the associates, it was thought that some of the epstein thoshts would be brought in and possibly charged criminally. the case was only getting
6:03 am
bigger. so many young girls allegedly abused by jeffrey epstein, thought they finally were going to see justice. they thought they would see him rot in a jail cell. it is unclear at this point what they're thinking today, if this indeed is justice. but jeffrey epstein, the monster they painted, is no more. >> now, a stunning turn of developments here, tom. it raises a lot of questions about developments, tom. it raises a lot of questions where the case goes from here. you where the cases go from here. we mentioned the names you mentioned in the unsealed documents. epstein dying of an apparent suicide, what could it mean for prosecutors as they try to put it all together now? >> the criminal case against jeffrey ep sestein personally i over. if they go after some of his associates, you have to remember there are allegations that several women worked with jeffrey epstein to procure some of the young girls, essentially mad always if you will. so far none of the women have been charged criminally yet, but there's thinking that the u.s.
6:04 am
attorney may go after some of these people. so the criminal case, though it is not even there yet, could continue in that direction. there are also civil cases because you have to remember jeffrey epstein is worth at least $500 million. multiple properties in new york, new mexico, palm beach, and he had a private island as well. so you have to think some of the civil cases may proceed forward since now the criminal case against jeffrey epstein is essentially over. a lot of questions still to be had on this, and you have to remember these allegations happened over years. we are talking about multiple, multiple women who say they were abused by jeffrey epstein when they were underage. so still a lot of questions, and this is definitely shocking to a lot of people. but if jeffrey epstein and the case against him was pretty strong, prosecutors said they had a strong case against him, if jeffrey epstein thought he had any chance of beating this case this time, clearly he
6:05 am
thought he couldn't. >> it will also raise a lot of questions for the metropolitan correctional center which was dealing with an inmate who is on suicide watch when all of this happened. the correctional center had faced allegations before about the conditions and a judge refusing that bond to jeffrey epstein, keeping him behind bars. tom yamos, thank you so much for your information there. again, just to recap breaking news for you, sources telling abc news jeffrey epstein died by suicide overnight at the metropolitan correctional center in manhattan. that, of course, the federal lockup where the multi-millionaire was being held while awaiting trial on the federal sex trafficking charges and conspiracy. we will return to regular programming. in some parts of the country it is "good morning america". we will have a complete wrap up on world news tonight with tom yamos who will be in the chair. for other developments throughout the course of the day go to abc news.com or our abc news app for breaking news alert. for now i'm whit johnson in

6:19 am
this is all due to a system to our north bringing some lightning strikes to the areas east of redding and near the oregon border where we have a red flag warning in effect throughout the day today because they're concerned that some of the lightning might start some fires. but for us dealing with the low clouds right now as we check out this live shot from emeryville over the bay bridge, san francisco right there in the background. temperatures have been very mild. so it is feeling a bit muggy right now. san francisco, 61 degrees. san jose, 68. we have quite a bit of moisture as well in the air. a live shot of sfo shows low cloud ceilings causing flight arrival delays of about 55 minutes. in santa rosa and napa it has cooled to 58 degrees, but still very mild. lots of 60s through fairfield, concord and livermore right now. our forecast animation shows the clouds sticking around during the next few hours. then by lunchtime it starts to break up a little bit. notice we're picking up some
6:20 am
moistu moisture, the areas of green there. there's a chance of a possible sprinkle but talking less than 10% so i don't think we will see anything at all. by this afternoon we will see some clearing into this evening as well, and then high pressure really rebuilds starting tomorrow. we will see some changes. for today though you can look for a high of 80 degrees in san jose for the jazz festival. again, we are picking up that moisture with our models, the green, but i don't think we're going to see any rain. also on the peninsula, look for a comfortable 73 degrees for the aloha festival and breezy at the coast. so if you are heading to outside lands today, i think you still want a jacket. temperatures will be in the low 60s this afternoon. downtown s to 66 for the giants where they will have more sun shine. look for upper 70s, novato, san rafael, petaluma, sonoma. near 80 degrees in ukiah and cloverdale. we will see high clouds passing

through the north bay it . it will be nice and mild in the east bay. 76 at fremont and plenty of sunshine farther inland. in fact, enjoy the milder weather, temperatures in the low to mid 80s today, because things will ramp up over the next few days. 85 in brentwood. get ready for the warm-up especially inland. tomorrow we'll start to see low 90s and around the bay we will see lots of upper 70s. then monday things really heat up. upper 90s for the inland areas. near 80 around the bay. high pressure continues through tuesday, and here is the accuweather seven-day forecast. so we've got a chance of a few drops possible. again, very unlikely. inland temperatures, mid 80s around the bay. mid 80s and at the coast -- around the bay mid 70s. at the coast, mid 60s. brighter and warmer tomorrow. high pressure builds and then we have really warm weather monday into tuesday. >> come on over. >> you caught me coming in,
