Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself

  Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his cell on Aug. 10, and on Aug. 16, the New York City medical examiner concluded that he had hanged himself. But new theories, evidence, and of course, memes, have arisen.

  The lengthy time allowed for Epstein to “kill himself” has been blamed extensively on the guards who, although were supposed to check on Epstein very two to three hours, were mostly sleeping and online shopping. Their last brief visual check prior to Epstein’s death was recorded on Aug. 9 at 10:30 (PM). The guards only went to Epstein’s cell again on Aug. 10 to give him breakfast at 6:30 when the body was discovered.

  But it isn’t just the fault of the guards’ negligence. Some blame could also be attributed to the higher-ups. The bigwigs of the prison. And this is one of the reasons some think that Epstein’s “suicide” is a conspiracy. Although he was put on suicide watch for a time, he was later taken off by request of Epstein’s attorney and placed back in a normal cell. He was given a cellmate, so that he could be watched from inside the cell at all times, but when his cellmate was transferred, the cellmate was not replaced; leaving Epstein alone in a cell, off suicide watch, and relying on the vigilance of two sleeping guards.

  The extreme negligence of the guards and poor judgment of the suicide precautions taken with Epstein aren’t the only reasons that some theorize he was murdered. There is also the autopsy ─ the second autopsy rather ─ of Epstein’s body.

  Fox News article Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy more consistent with homicidal strangulation than suicide, Dr. Michael Baden reveals by Melissa Leon said, “Dr. Michael Baden, a former New York City medical examiner… told Fox News its findings are more consistent with homicidal strangulation than suicidal hanging… Epstein had two fractures on the left and right sides of his larynx, specifically the thyroid cartilage or Adam’s apple, as well as one fracture on the left hyoid bone above the Adam’s apple.” Baden went on to say that it does not mean 100 percent that he was murdered, but those specific injuries are very rare in suicidal hangings and more common in homicides. Baden is a highly experienced medical examiner, having examined over 20,000 bodies in his career.

  Many conspiracy theorists also bring up the point of who wanted him dead: all the rich people who allegedly paid him to allegedly go to his island where they would allegedly sexually assault allegedly young allegedly teenage girls. If this were true, they wouldn’t want Epstein to divulge the names of who he took to his private island. So, they could have hired someone to kill him. Although no one has been convicted of being one of those people, Prince Andrew of the royal family has been accused by one of the girls themselves, and Bill Clinton was alleged to have been on one of the flights by one of the pilots.

  All of these circumstances, although maybe not enough to convince some people, is why many believe that Epstein was murdered. There are others who believe, that the extreme negligence and incredible series of poor decisions that gave Epstein such opportunity was, at the very least, more than coincidence. In any case, the rest of us know… 

  … Epstein didn’t kill himself.
