Wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged suicide on Saturday has led to many demanding answers given the highly suspicious circumstances.
While there are still a plethora of unanswered questions, a new bombshell report reveals what happened just before Epstein’s death.
According to the New York Post, 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.”
“He had been placed on suicide watch and evaluated psychologically last month after he was found with bruising on his neck,” Fox News reported. “However, he was taken off the watch in late July.”
Following Epstein’s death, Attorney General William Barr released the following statement:
“I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.”
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.
While Epstein is reportedly dead, many rich and powerful people around the world are probably still scared over what might be released to the public.
The Clinton family could find themselves in hot water given their disturbing connection to Epstein, which dates all the way back to when President Bill Clinton was in office in the mid-1990s.
In fact, they are so close to Epstein that one photo from Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding likely has the former first daughter furious.
