“7 Unanswered Questions About Jeffrey Epstein’s Death That The Mainstream Media Needs To Be Talking About,” authored by Michael Snyder via End Of The American Dream…

Did Jeffrey Epstein commit suicide or was he murdered?  This is a question that is being debated by millions of Americans right now, and without a doubt this is the biggest story of this news cycle.  Unfortunately, the mainstream media is already dropping the ball.  Instead of going wherever the evidence leads them, there already seems to be a tremendous effort to marginalize any explanations for his death other than “suicide”.  And it may turn out that “suicide” is where the evidence takes us, but while things are unclear we should not be afraid to ask the hard questions.

The following are 7 unanswered questions about Jeffrey Epstein’s death that the mainstream media needs to be talking about…

#1 Why are the autopsy results being delayed?  According to NBC News, the New York City medical examiner’s office is requesting “more information” before determining the cause of Epstein’s death…

The New York City medical examiner’s office said Sunday that it had completed an autopsy of the financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein but that it needed more information before determining the cause of death.

#2 What will the cameras show?  By now most people have heard that there were no cameras filming what was going on inside Epstein’s cell, but there were cameras filming the doors of each cell

The news of the delay to the autopsy results comes after a source told the New York Post there was no video of the moment he died in his jail cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center.

Cameras are said to film the doors to each cell which would show anyone who entered or exited, but they do not point inside.

So if someone paid a “visit” to Epstein, there should be video evidence of it.

#3 Why was Jeffrey Epstein taken off suicide watch?  After Epstein attempted to “kill himself” the first time, he was put on suicide watch, but only for a short period.  The following comes from CNN

No. Epstein was temporarily placed on a suicide watch after he was found in his jail cell July 23 with marks on his neck, a law enforcement source and a source familiar with the incident told CNN at the time.

It wasn’t clear whether those injuries, which were not serious, were self-inflicted or the result of an assault, the sources said. Epstein told authorities he had been beaten up and called a child predator, they said.

#4 Why did the guards break prison rules and not check on him every 30 minutes?  Apparently these guards had been working a lot of overtime, but that is no excuse for breaking prison rules

Epstein should have been checked on by guards in his cell every 30 minutes, but that didn’t happen the night before his apparent suicide, a law enforcement official told the Times.

The Times spoke to the official on the condition of anonymity. The Associated Press has not independently confirmed the information.

A law enforcement source also said he was alone in his cell Saturday night after his cellmate was transferred. An official with knowledge of the investigation told the Times that the Justice Department was told Epstein would have a cellmate and be monitored by a guard every 30 minutes.

#5 Why would Jeffrey Epstein try to kill himself if he was adjusting so well to prison life?  According to a “prison insider” interviewed by the Daily Mail, Epstein “seemed to be in good spirits” just before his life ended…

The insider, who had seen the disgraced financier on several occasions during his incarceration at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, also claims that the normally reserved Epstein seemed to be in good spirits.

‘There was no indication that he might try to take his own life,’ the source told DailyMail.com.

‘From what I saw, he was finally starting to adjust to prison. I think he was comforted by the rigidity of his new life.’

#6 Why did Jeffrey Epstein tell guards that someone was trying to kill him?  It has been reported by the mainstream media that Epstein previously tried to kill himself, but apparently that report was being directly contradicted by Epstein himself.  Of course it is entirely possible that Epstein was lying, but according to multiple reports he claimed that someone had tried to kill him

The 66-year-old convicted sex offender reportedly told guards and fellow inmates he believed someone was trying to kill him.

The multimillionaire, who was being held on sex trafficking charges at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, had previously been on suicide watch.

#7 How could Epstein kill himself in a prison where the cells had been specifically designed to prevent that from happening?  I shared this quote in another article that I just posted, but it is deeply relevant to this article as well.  According to a former inmate of the Metropolitan Correction Center in lower Manhattan that was just interviewed by the New York Post, there is no way that Epstein would have been able to hang himself

There’s no way that man could have killed himself. I’ve done too much time in those units. It’s an impossibility.

Between the floor and the ceiling is like eight or nine feet. There’s no way for you to connect to anything.

You have sheets, but they’re paper level, not strong enough. He was 200 pounds — it would never happen.

Everything in these cells was designed to keep hanging deaths from happening, but that is not the only way that prisoners kill themselves.

According to a study cited by the Los Angeles Times, over 90 percent of all prison suicides are hangings, and drug overdoses are the second most common cause…

According to news reports, Epstein was not on suicide watch when he died, but even if he had been the outcome might have been the same. A study by the U.S. Marshal Service found that about 8% of suicides in correctional facilities occurred even though an inmate was on suicide watch. According to the report, the vast majority of suicides (more than 90%) are hangings, with the second most common being drug overdoses.

So is it possible that Epstein could have come up with a way to kill himself?

Yes, although it wouldn’t have been easy.  Epstein was certainly a miserable human being, and without anything positive to live for, he probably imagined that he would rot away in a prison cell for the rest of his life.

In the end, it definitely would not be a surprise if someone in his position chose the cowardly route of committing suicide.

But without a doubt, something doesn’t smell right here.

There were reports that Epstein was willing to start testifying against his rich and powerful friends, but now that will never happen.

It is clear that there are certain people that have greatly benefited from his death, and in many of those cases it appears that justice will probably never be served.

Suicide my eye! There are many big names let off the hook by his death, including Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Trump, Richardson and too many more to mention. Will this case be prosecuted to see who was being blackmailed by him, or, as usual, brushed under the carpet?

For starters, let’s see all the guard logs for the past two weeks published and see on what days they did their 30 minute tours, then let’s see the forensic ink test and handwriting analysis reports on them. Then let’s see the guards’ lie detector Q&A’s. Then let’s see the video reconstruction of how a guy hangs himself in a hang-proof cell. That’s just for starters. In short, let’s see all the things that should be done but never are done (or worse yet, dummied up-a la NYT, MI6 and BelchingCat for starters) when it’s some event involving a foreign… Read more »

He missed Obama? I don’t miss Obama but sometimes I do whenever I hear a Hillary cackle or read a Trump tweet.

Why is it that a supposedly tier one country cconsistently dregs up tier five candidates to run it?

Apparently there has only been ONE successful suicide in this prison in 40 years. Funny how the latest one happens to be someone who could send Bill Clinto – and a LOT of other vermin – to a supermax for the rest of their lives?

Perhaps Epstien knew that powerful friends were going to help him escape from prison and that he seemed to be getting used to prison life because he knew it would only be temporary. The best way to make an escape work would be for Epstien to appear dead. That way, there would be no search for him. And he could then lead a normal life in a far away country like Israel with a change of identity. This could be done by switching prisoners with a double of Epstien. Apparently Epstien or his double was brought to the cell handcuffed… Read more »

Your scepticism regarding the involvement of intelligence agencies is surprising. The very fact that you blithely dismiss it just shows how clever a sophisticated intelligence operation is. The first rule of an intelligence operation is to ensure that it cannot be traced back to the source. In a cruder era, Lee Harvey Oswald, a person who was at the very least well known and monitored by both the FBI and the CIA (1) (2), was shot to death on live national television before he could talk. In the present era, such a move would be much more difficult, hence the… Read more »

A lot of people won’t believe the official narrative, regardless of pictures, DNA tests, etc…
And why should they? Given the severe implications of this case and the circumstances for his ‘death.’

Ha, when it comes to anything that ‘shining fog on the hill’ deep state does these past few decades, it’s every US citizen’s patriotic duty to declare themselves natives of the ‘Show Me’ state of Missouri. Was listening to the talking turkey heads at MSNBC earlier, trying to play up Trump as a conspiracy nut accusing Clinton for Epstein when all he did was say ‘I don’t know but why did Clinton say he’d only been on flights 4 times when the flight logs show 20+ times? Why did he say that?’ No Trump fan here but when they skirt… Read more »

But is J.E. really kaput? Were fingerprints of the corpse taken? X-rays and photographs of the teeth? DNA samples? Photographs of the ears? Photos of the face for facial recognition technology? Was anyone called upon to identify the remains? What about the profile photos that don’t match?

A few more questions: Where were the guards? What are their names? Do they have off-shore bank accounts? Have their spending habits changed recently? Has there been unusual phone calls traceable to “burner” phones in their possession? Do they have criminal records? I’m certain NSA has ALL this information – why are their recordings NOT being subpoenaed? (BTW, as early as 1971, ALL telecommunications within the USA and US international trunk lines went through 7 NSA sites BEFORE going through the 7 US telecom sites – that was almost FIFTY YEARS AGO! To think they haven’t improved since then is… Read more »

I went through JFK last week and my flight was cancelled for weather. I asked one of those guys dressed as guards where to go for info. He had sort of a slurred response but hard to tell with the hundred accents you hear around there. Two feet away, I could smell his booze breath. He was totally wasted. Surprised he could stand up.

Doubt it’s any different in lockup.

Think about who you would target if you were a government sponsored honey trap. You would set up a guy to look like and fit in with the wealthy and powerful and have lots of free money. Money that would buy women to have sex with powerful people and have the appearance of just a sex pervert. The guy selling the entrapment scheme has to be enough part of it to be believable, but not indulge in drugs and extreme drinking that would compromise the operation(s)(plural)….targeting hundreds if not thousands for blackmail. Gods light has truly shown upon an evil… Read more »
