Epstein’s ‘Wingman’, Who Vowed To Expose Elite Pedophile Ring, Found Dead

New York-based businessman Steven Hoffenberg, who described himself as Jeffrey Epstein’s “best friend” and “wingman”, has been found dead at his Connecticut apartment, officials say. He was 77.

Police in Derby, Connecticut said officers responded to Hoffenberg’s apartment at 8 p.m. on Tuesday for a requested welfare check. When they arrived, the officers found a body “in a state where a visual identification could not be made.”

The body was taken to the office of the chief medical examiner, where an autopsy was performed on Wednesday. The initial examination revealed no trauma but the cause of death is still unknown pending further toxicology study, police said.

The Derby Police Department said on Friday morning that the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed that the body was that of Steven Hoffenberg.

There was no word on when Hoffenberg may have died, but his regular use of Twitter came to an sudden end on July 26, when he retweeted Joe Biden and posted links to several mainstream news articles.

Epstein victim Maria Farmer, who became close friends with Hoffenberg, says she had been trying to call him for well over a week when she called police last Saturday to request a welfare check, but it was unsuccessful because the address she provided was out of date. The body was found after a second request on Tuesday night.

According to multiple Epstein victims, Hoffenberg had turned his back on Epstein and vowed to expose the truth. Judging by the state his body was found in this week, the implications of the former “best friend” of Jeffrey Epstein speaking his truth appeared to be too much for the elite to risk.

Hoffenberg was the founder of New York debt collection agency Towers Financial Corporation which he set up with Jeffrey Epstein, which in 1993 was revealed to be one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in U.S. history, bilking investors out of nearly half a billion dollars.

Hoffenberg met Jeffrey Epstein in the late 1980s and hired him to help at Towers Financial Corporation. “He was my best friend for years. My closest friend for years … He was my guy, my wingman,” Hoffenberg told CBS News in an interview in 2019.

Epstein, who was charged with sex trafficking of minors in July 2019, was found dead in his cell, apparently by hanging, in New York a few weeks later. Epstein’s death was officially ruled a suicide, though the official narrative has been widely discredited.
