Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire who was standing trial on several counts of child trafficking, was found dead in his prison cell on Saturday, August 10. It was ruled he committed suicide by hanging, but not everyone believes it due to the high-profile nature of his crimes and case. Epstein was known to rub shoulders with several powerful people, and he even worked as an FBI informant.
Epstein had been placed on suicide watch just two weeks prior, and it was 24 hours after 2,000 pages of information about his case was released to the public. It would seem to reason that the guards who were in charge of him would be giving him special attention to make sure he didn’t attempt suicide again.
But that’s not what happened, and now the prison guards who were in charge of watching Epstein have come forward with the truth.
There were two guards assigned to Epstein’s watch on that Saturday morning in the Manhattan jail. They were ordered to check on prisoners every 30 minutes. And it’s supposed to be every 15 minutes for prisoners on suicide watch.
Now that it’s clear that they didn’t do their jobs, the prison guards are blaming their long overtime hours on Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide.
Allegedly, one of the guards was working his fifth straight day of overtime at the short-staffed jail, while the other guard was forced to work that overtime shift.
There are now sources claiming that Epstein had told other prison guards that someone was trying to kill him in the weeks before his death. This new insider claims that Epstein was not a candidate for suicide. He told the Daily Mail, “There was no indication that he might try to take his own life. From what I saw, he was finally starting to adjust to prison. I think he was comforted by the rigidity of his new life.”
Epstein’s suicide will go down in history as one of the biggest conspiracy’s in America. Do you think he committed suicide, or was he killed? Tell us in the comments below!
