When Jeffrey Epstein was found dead by suicide on Saturday morning, it put the case against him in limbo.

Brad Edwards, an attorney for several of Epstein's accusers echoed Araoz, urging anyone with information to come forward. "The victims deserved to see Epstein held accountable, and he owed it to everyone he hurt to accept responsibility for all of the pain he caused," Edwards said.
