The day after over 2,000 pages worth of court documents were released tying notorious pedophile and child sex trafficker Jeffery Epstein to several high ranking former government officials and business elites, Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell, and later pronounced dead at the hospital of an apparent suicide, officials said.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of the many victims of Epstein’s pedophile ring, accused him in a 2016 deposition of forcing her to have sexual relations with “modeling agent Jean Luc Brunel, money manager Glenn Dubin and the late MIT professor Marvin Minsky — as well as a ‘foreign president’ and ‘a well-known prime minister,'” according to NBC. She would go on to add that these men were just a small fraction of the many men she was forced to satisfy.
The list also included Former Maine Senator George Mitchell, and Former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson. Both men are denying the allegations.
The deposition was released mere hours before Epstein’s lifeless body was discovered in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center.
His suicide should not have surprised anybody as Epstein had previously attempted suicide last month, but survived. According to officials, despite being a high risk of self-harm, Epstein was taken off suicide watch days before the second and successful suicide attempt by the pedophile monster.
“For them to pull him off suicide watch is shocking,” Cameron Lindsay, a former warden who worked at three federal facilities, told NBC News. “For someone this high-profile, with these allegations and this many victims, who has had a suicide attempt in the last few weeks, you can take absolutely no chances. You leave him on suicide watch until he’s out of there.”NBC
It remains unknown as to the reasoning why Epstein, the most high profile individual within the Federal Prison system, was under such a low level of observation, especially when there was still so much to learn about the child sex ring he ran for decades across several countries.
The public was not the only ones outraged by what seems to be a clear act of negligence on the part of the prison staff. Attorney General William Barr released a statement in which he announced an investigation into Epstein’s death.
“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,” Barr wrote.
In a time of massive political division, it seems gross the mishandling of Epstein’s security may be the only nonpartisan issue of the years as everyone from Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez to Rep. Ben Sasse are demanding answers from the correctional system.
The only clear thing is that it appears many of the secrets held by Epstein may have died along with him.
