An incredible lack of answers surrounding the mysterious death of wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein continues to puzzle Americans.
Just about everyone on both sides of the political aisle are demanding to know how arguably the highest profile prisoner in America could wind up dead in his jail cell when he was supposed to be on 24 hour watch by guards.
And Epstein’s last words to his lawyer seem to destroy the theory that he committed suicide.
As reported by the New York Post, Epstein reportedly told one of his lawyers on Saturday night, “I’ll see you Sunday.”
Epstein’s lawyers not only found the convicted pedophile talkative last Saturday when they met, but also positive about his chances of having a denial of his bail overturned and receiving lenient treatment from the justice system.
In other words, Epstein seemed upbeat and actually thought he would get a “sweetheart deal” amid the allegations that he operated a sex ring with underage girls for many years.
The New York Post also reports that Epstein told his lawyers that his first suicide attempt was actually an attack by a cellmate, an alleged dirty cop.
“He thought he was going to win the double-jeopardy motion” that his lawyers were hoping could be filed because Epstein had already been convicted on a prostitution charge in 2008.
Despite being denied bail due to what a judge cited as his “uncontrollable” sexual urges, Epstein apparently believed he would reverse that ruling on an appeal.
“He was delusional,” the source to the Post. “He thought he was going to get the same deal he got in Florida.”
It would certainly seem odd that Epstein would tell his lawyers “I’ll see you Sunday” and then he took his own life the very next morning.
Adding even more fuel to the fire, a source “familiar with the situation” said there was “shrieking” and “shouting” coming from Epstein’s jail cell on the morning of his death.
On the morning of Jeffrey Epstein’s death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell, a source familiar with the situation told CBS News. Corrections officers attempted to revive him while saying “breathe, Epstein, breathe.”
Epstein allegedly hanged himself with a bed sheet that he tied to the top of a bunk bed in his jail cell.
“The convicted pedophile, who was 6 feet tall, apparently killed himself by kneeling toward the floor and strangling himself with the makeshift noose, a law enforcement source said Monday,” the Post reported. “Epstein was ‘unresponsive’ when he was discovered in his cell in the Special Housing Unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, the federal Bureau of Prisons has said.”
Epstein was arrested and charged last month for allegedly running a sex traffic ring with underage girls.
Things continue to get more suspicious by the day, especially given the unusual circumstances that occurred before, during, and after his death.
Just hours before his suicide, Epstein’s cellmate was mysteriously transferred out of his cell, which left the financier all alone after he was already put on suicide watch.
Then, Epstein was reportedly not checked on by the prison guards who were supposed to be monitoring him.
A mysterious camera malfunction has prevented any footage of Epstein’s alleged suicide from being captured.
On Monday, just two days after his death, a large group of FBI agents raided Epstein’s private island off the coast of the island of St. Thomas.
Epstein’s private palace — which has been dubbed his “Orgy Island” — in the U.S. Virgin Islands is so important because it’s where he allegedly took underage girls for many years to sexually exploit and abuse them.
But soon after his suspicious “suicide” on Saturday, investigators are now reportedly focusing on who might have helped with his illicit activities and where the alleged sexual encounters may have taken place.
With Epstein dead, perhaps prosecutors are now aiming to put his top allies behind bars.
But until more answers are provided, many people will continue to doubt the official story surrounding Epstein’s death.
