What the hell is going on?
A new report indicates that one of the two people guarding Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t even a correctional officer, as the Washington Times reports:
A person familiar with operations at the federal jail where Jeffrey Epstein killed himself says one of the two people guarding him the night he died wasn’t a correctional officer.
The person wasn’t authorized to disclose information about the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.
That is rather shocking. Given the high profile nature, and recent “suicide” attempt you’d think Epstein would be better guarded.
Curiouser and curiouser.
Federal authorities revealed today the cause of death of convicted pedophile Jefferey Epstein, via the New York Post:
Jeffrey Epstein was found hanging in his Lower Manhattan jail cell with a bedsheet wrapped around his neck and secured to the top of a bunk bed, The Post has learned.
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.
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.
Staffers attempted to revive him and he was taken to an infirmary inside the lockup, then transported by ambulance to the NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
This news comes just after FBI agents were just seen raiding Jeffrey Epstein’s private island dubbed by some as “pedophile island” the Daily Mail reports:
FBI agents were seen raiding Jeffrey Epstein’s private US Virgin Island, which has been dubbed ‘pedophile island’, as the sex trafficking probe around the now deceased billionaire intensifies, as exclusive DailyMailTV footage shows the search being carried out.
A large group of FBI officers were seen disembarking speedboats at the pier of Little St James on Monday morning and driving around on golf carts after the 66-year-old was found dead by suicide in his New York jail cell early on Saturday morning.
Other officials with ‘FBI’ lettering on clear display were later seen overlooking the crystal blue sea from the top of Epstein’s remote luxury home off the coast of St Thomas.
While this is a welcome development is seems a bit late in the game. Why didn’t the FBI raid the island weeks ago?
An onlooker, who asked to remain anonymous and shot the footage, told DailyMailTV: ‘I’m on a boat charter with guests. We are the only guests out here at the moment.
‘We were enjoying lunch when we saw over a dozen people getting off their speedboats and landing on the island.
‘When we looked harder, we could see the FBI logo on the backs of their shirts.
‘It didn’t take long for us to realize they must be conducting a raid on Epstein’s house.’
