Less than 24 hours after the names and lurid details of some of Epstein’s alleged clientele were released, Jeffrey Epstein is dead.
[See UPDATES at bottom.]
Although he was reportedly on “suicide watch,” convicted pedophile and accused sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein has died from an apparent suicide.
Epstein’s death comes one day after a court released previously-sealed documents that exposed allegations and evidence from one of Epstein’s “sex slaves” Virginia Giuffre, whom Epstein allegedly sent to have sex with several rich and powerful Democrats, as well as England’s Prince Andrew and others.
Among those named were Bill Clinton’s former Energy Secretary and United Nations Ambassador Bill Richardson (who later become New Mexico’s Governor), former U.S. Senate Leader George Mitchell, England’s Prince Andrew, and asset manager Glenn Dubin.
The Bureau of Prisons called the death an “apparent suicide,” though one official cautioned that the investigation was in its early stages and no final determination had been made, according to the Washington Post.
Less than two weeks ago, after Epstein was found “injured” in his cell, one of his victim’s lawyers expressed concern that Epstein’s life could be in danger from “powerful people.”
As Friday’s document drop was only the first release, it was expected that there would be more names and evidence expected to drop in the months ahead.
With Epstein now dead, it is unclear whether the public will ever know the extent of his alleged sex-trafficking.
As can be expected, not everyone is buying the “suicide” story.
People close to Epstein fear he was murdered…as Epstein told authorities someone tried to kill him in a previous incident weeks earlier. He was described as being in good spirits in recent days… https://t.co/J9QNSo1N2v

Authorities couldn’t keep Epstein alive by putting him under 24 hour surveillance? How convenient for a lot of rich and powerful men.

How does someone in a maximum security prison who had already attempted suicide once, actually commit suicide?
Was Jeffrey Epstein not monitored 24/7?
Were there guards sympathetic to him in some capacity?
We obviously don’t know much, but this smells very fishy.
