Financier Jeffrey Epstein signed a will just two days before his suicide in prison, The Guardian reported.
According to the source, thus, the likelihood of a long struggle for the state of the multimillionaire increases.
The court documents submitted last week did not disclose any details about the heirs, but his fortune is estimated at more than $ 577 million, including over $ 56 million in cash.
Epstein signed the will on August 8, and less than 48 hours later he was found dead in a prison cell.
The first media to report the will was the New York Post, which raised questions about Epstein's last days in prison in connection with this fact, where he was awaiting hearings on the case of the sex trafficking in minors and criminal conspiracy.
On Monday, prosecutors closed the indictment against Epstein but said they were considering bringing other charges of contributing to the abuse of dozens of girls.
Epstein was found dead in federal prison in New York on August 11. A forensic examination later confirmed the version of the suicide of a multimillionaire.
