There’s nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
This is just stunning.
UPDATE: The Feds have found the footage.
Video footage of Jeffrey Epstein’s cell from back in July—when Epstein allegedly tried to kill himself the first time—has gone missing.
Missing, as in gone…vanished…poof!
According to the New York Daily News, no one knows where it is:
Surveillance footage of the outside of Jeffrey Epstein’s cell at the troubled Metropolitan Correctional Center during his suicide attempt has gone missing, prosecutors revealed Wednesday.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Swergold admitted nobody can find the footage of the outside of the cell the multimillionaire perv shared with accused quadruple murderer Nick Tartaglione during a hearing in White Plains District Court. Tartaglione, a former Briarcliff Manor cop, faces the death penalty for the alleged murders in a drug deal gone bad.
Bruce Barket, an attorney for Tartaglione, confirmed the stunning revelation that the footage was not preserved. The Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office declined comment. [Emphasis added.]
Tartaglione’s lawyer was requesting the video to potentially use as evidence of his accused-quadruple murderer client’s good character.
Tartaglione had claimed he saved his cellmate Epstein’s life when Epstein first tried hanging himself in July. Epstein had claimed Tartaglione attacked him.
Two weeks after the incident, Epstein was found dead in a different cell.
