On Tuesday, longtime mentor of infamous multimillionaire and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his Connecticut home after law enforcement officers discovered his corpse during a wellness check.

According to the New York Post, Connecticut police found the body of Hoffman in his home at around 8 pm. There is currently no cause of death released.

Police had been called to the Derby, CT home of the 77-year-old former Ponzi scheme owner at the request of a friend.

Police said that there were no immediate signs of trauma on his body.

"Every indication is that it is Mr. Hoffenberg," a Derby Police Department spokesman said. "There’s nothing to suggest that it isn’t. We believe it’s him. We’re just waiting for dental records."

On Facebook, police said the body of Hoffenberg was found "in a state where a visual identification could not be made."

Hoffenberg had once served as Epstein’s boss, and had previously claimed that Epstein had served as an accomplice in the Ponzi scheme he ran through Towers Financial Corp, according to the New York Post.

Hoffenberg plead guilty to the scheme in 1995, and was sentenced to spend 20 years in prison which he served 18.

In a 2018 lawsuit from Tower investors, they claimed that Epstein "knowingly and intentionally utilized funds he fraudulently diverted and obtained from this massive Ponzi scheme for his own personal use to support a lavish lifestyle."
