While the mainstream media continues to insist that Jeffrey Epstein was a victim of suicide on Saturday morning, deep within one of the nation’s most secure prisons no less, new details are emerging that could blow the story wide open.
You can tell by the social media reaction to Epstein’s death that Americans aren’t buying the official story. The wealthy financier was far too well connected, and far too important an inmate, to be left alone for the amount of time necessary for his alleged self-demise. Furthermore, reports of shrieking from his cell block and a timely camera malfunction have turned even the most levelheaded observers into conspiracy theorists overnight.
Now, to add to the mystery, the guards who were tasked with keeping an eye on the world’s most infamous jailbird have been placed on leave following a shocking discovery.
Surveillance video reviewed after Epstein’s death shows guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center did not make some of the checks they claimed to have made in their logs, a source told the Associated Press. The New York Times reported, citing unnamed officials, that the guards fell asleep at some point and did not check on him for up to three hours.
The federal jail workers claimed they were checking on inmates in Epstein’s unit every half hour, but investigators now believe that was not the case. The Justice Department on Tuesday said that two guards assigned to watch Epstein had been placed on administrative leave.
The “serious irregularities” in Epstein’s incarceration and subsequent death have led to investigations by both the Department of Justice and the FBI.
