About Peter Nygård:

"His lawyers presented a very different picture of the 79-year-old inmate, now facing extradition to the United States and seeking to be released on bail: He was old, sick, broke, lonely and likely to die in jail, where he has languished for more than a month and where the coronavirus is raging.

In his own affidavit, Mr. Nygard said that since his arrest on behalf of the United States in connection with sex crimes and other charges, “I am getting weaker everyday. I have lost weight; have difficulty breathing (it’s getting worse); have suffered dizziness and fainting spells as well as numbness in my hands and toes."

 

Will Canada's Epstein die of natural causes or something else?

She was even told, she had only six months to live but is fine now. Still, bile duct cancer can be pretty bad:

His only sibling, a sister died last year after a cancer battle and probably his whole family has turned against him as he once hired women to rape his underage sons:

Fashion designer Peter Hidalgo, 53, died January 17 in Manhattan.

The cause of death has not yet been determined, according to his publicist.

At the time of his death Hidalgo was in a homeless shelter, where he had been temporarily living with the hope of qualifying for subsidized housing.

A co-winner of the 2010 Fashion Group International’s “Rising Star” award for women’s wear, Hidalgo was primarily working with a couple of private clients including Nicki Minaj in recent years.
