Sex Criminal Jeffrey Epstein Found Dead of Apparent Suicide in Manhattan Prison Cell
Jeffrey Epstein, the Democrat-affiliated sex predator who was facing new charges for allegedly trafficking children to some of the world’s most powerful and well-connected people, is dead today from what is being attributed as a suicide.
Law enforcement sources told ABC News that Epstein committed suicide by hanging himself. He was found Saturday morning in his prison cell in Lower Manhattan and transferred to New York Downtown Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Epstein was slated to stand trial in 2020 on charges of abusing dozens of underage girls in Florida and New York. Child pornography was found after authorities conducted a raid of his posh New York City mansion following his arrest last month.
He had been on suicide watch since July 23 when he was found in his cell unresponsive with self-inflicted wounds around his neck. The fact that he killed himself while on suicide watch is fueling rampant speculation on social media that foul play may have been involved.
How was Epstein not on the most intensive suicide watch protocol available???

Hey, did Jeffrey Epstein commit suicide? He was on suicide watch. Impossible. was he murdered by his rich and powerful freinds?

In my view, the death of Jeffrey Epstein is a warning to any other witnesses.
“We got to him in prison, do you think you’ll be safe anywhere?”

I was stunned by Epstein’s suicide, though probably not as much as Epstein himself.

The strangest part is other prisoners report hearing Epstein shout “Please Hillary no!” as he hanged and shot himself twice in the back of the head to commit suicide

Me before Epstein’s death: Conspiracy theories are favored by people who crave simplistic explanations for their own feelings of powerlessness
Me now: The Illuminati whacked Epstein

Perhaps today’s news informs us as to why the media & authorities want to ban & characterize as terrorist propaganda all “conspiracy theories”.
To them, questioning Epstein’s “suicide” is a “conspiracy theory.”

It remains to be seen how Epstein’s death will impact the ongoing investigation into his sex trafficking network, as documents implicating several officials who served under former President Bill Clinton as well as other powerful individuals were released yesterday.
