Close Bill Clinton pal and an accused rapist and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in jail over the weekend, but there was a series of strange choices made by federal officials that led to giving the prisoner the time to end his life.
Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein was in jail awaiting trial on charges of multiple cases of rape, human trafficking, enslaving girls, and pedophilia. He was also accused of arranging for girls as young as 14 to have sex with a long list of powerful men including Bill Clinton, former Maine Sen. George Mitchell, ex-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and many others.
Epstein also reportedly flew these young girls across state lines and out of the country for his sex parties. Bill Clinton, for instance, is known to have flown on Epstein’s “Lolita Express” and partied with the accused rapist and pedophile on at least 20 occasions or more.
But on Saturday morning, Epstein reportedly committed suicide in his jail cell despite the common assumption by many that he was on suicide watch over a previous attempt to harm himself.
We are now learning that a strange series of “coincidences” occurred all of which facilitated this “suicide.” These odd decisions by federal jailers and authorities allowed Epstein the time to kill himself.
Among the odd moves made by federal officials was the fact that Epstein was left completely alone in his cell. According to Fox News, Epstein was supposed to have a cellmate to discourage his interest in suicide. Epstein did have a cellmate in keeping with this idea. However, that cellmate was transferred hours before the man’s death.
Then there was the fact that Epstein’s guards were probably a bit less attentive than they might have been because they had been on extreme overtime on the morning of Epstein’s death. Indeed, one of the accused rapist’s guards had been on his fifth consecutive day of overtime, according to the Associated Press.
A report from the Daily Mail also noted that none of Epstein’s jailers had bothered to check his cell for hours during the night he was preparing to hang himself in his cell.
The whole thing is so strange that the suicide has spawned a series of conspiracy theories that Epstein may have been murdered. Indeed, one former Metropolitan Correctional Center inmate told the New York Post that in his opinion it is impossible for an inmate to commit suicide there.
“There’s no way that man could have killed himself. I’ve done too much time in those units. It’s an impossibility,” the inmate told the paper.
Meanwhile, an autopsy has been completed on Epstein’s body, but the results have not yet been released.
Then there was the fact that Epstein was taken off suicide watch even after trying to hurt himself once already in the short amount of time he had been in prison. Some experts have announced how puzzled they are over that decision.
Finally, it appears that there were no cameras watching him in his cell. Cameras only patrol the hallways and common areas.
