John Connolly co-wrote the book
Filthy Rich: The Shocking True Story of Jeffrey Epstein - The Billionaire’s Sex Scandal. Before his successful career as a journalist, Connolly was a former NYPD detective and stockbroker.
Before his death, Connolly was working on his new book, The Sin Eater, based on the disgraced and imprisoned Hollywood private investigator Anthony Pellicano.

Before Pellicano was incarcerated, he’d worked for some of Hollywood’s biggest names, including late Paramount studio boss Brad Grey, former CAA agent Michael Ovitz and the “King of Pop,” Jackson.
A cause of death has not been determined.
