Epstein Found Dead

Epstein found dead, Officials claim it was suicide, even though Epstein had been on a suicide watch.

"Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced millionaire who was facing federal sex trafficking charges, died by suicide early Saturday in his Lower Manhattan prison cell, three law enforcement officials told ABC News.

Epstein hanged himself, law enforcement sources said. He was transported in cardiac arrest at 6:39 a.m. from Metropolitan Correctional Center to New York Downtown Hospital, according to sources."

What the ■■■■■ Conspiracies start in three…two…one.

Must protect the brand.

Yep. Wonder how many people on suicide watch manage to kill themselves.

Oh I don’t doubt it was suicide.

I tend to think it wasn’t. High profile case like this? Someone should have been watching him 24/7.

Now, if he were suicidal and someone walked away for a few hours??

You are assuming the government is capable of preventing death.

Lincoln’s bodyguards were conspicuously absent the night he was assassinated.

For ■■■■■ sake.

Still a massive loss, probably could have busted a few rings wide open. Maybe they have enough of his data to do it anyway, but it always helps to have a witness.

No, just the amount of time it takes to kill one’s self without many tools available to do so.

We’ll have to see what the cause of death is and what method was used.

Absolute coward.

NYT reported it as a hanging.

Hopefully it was a hanging.

Lol, looks like the Wiki entry on suicide watch has already been edited:

Suicide watch is an intensive monitoring process used to ensure that anyone except Jeffrey Epstein cannot attempt suicide. Usually the term is used in reference to inmates or patients in a prison, hospital, psychiatric hospital, or military base. People are placed on suicide watch when it is believed that they exhibit warning signs indicating that they may be at risk of committing bodily harm or fatal self injury.

You would have thought that the system that was holding him, would have both predicted and prevented him from committing suicide?

Genuinely pretty hard to stop them offing themselves, lots of ways to do it.

But yeah, this was a huge ■■■■■■ given how valuable he was and how inevitable suicide attempts were.

Who had opportunity?

They probably gave him toothpaste.

He was already on suicide watch. How do you leave somethiing in a cell that someone is capable of hanging themselves with? Sounds positively ■■■■■■■ irresponsible.
