Authorities found what appeared to be evidence of blackmail at Jeffrey Epstein's Manhattan residence prior to his death, according to CNN's Erica Orden.

When New York law enforcement officials executed a search warrant on Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan residence, they found a trove of nude photos of girls who appeared to be underage — and locked away in a safe, what look to be possible black mail discs.

According to the Southern District of New York’s detention memo, some of the photos “were discovered in a locked safe, in which law enforcement officers also found compact discs with hand-written labels including the following: ‘Young [Name] + [Name],’ ‘Misc Nudes 1,’ and ‘Girl pics nude.’”

Epstein, who was a registered sex offender following his plea agreement with Florida prosecutors in 2008, faced child sex trafficking charges in New York prior to his suicide.
