Last year, an investigative series by the Miami Herald brought wealthy financier and convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein back into the spotlight. Reporting revealed he was given special treatment during his conviction.

That story triggered new interest in the case, and Epstein was jailed earlier this year in New York on federal child sex trafficking charges. In August, he was found dead in his cell, his death has been ruled a suicide. But one pathologist who attended an autopsy on Epstein is challenging that ruling.

This March 28, 2017, file photo, provided by the New York State Sex Offender Registry shows Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein is set to return to court Wednesday, July 31, 2019, to face sex trafficking charges just days after he was found injured in his cell.
