Epstein Update: Murder By Incompetence?

Epstein Death
When the Left wants something or someone to disappear or be disappeared the desired result occurs with astonishing regularity – especially if it touches on Bill and Hillary Clinton’s interests. So, the story that accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s (MCC) Special Housing Unit stretches the bounds of credibility.

And the latest story coming out of the MCC’s management stretches those bounds even further, because what they are claiming is that Epstein, one of the highest profile, if not the highest profile, prisoner in the MCC died through sheer incompetence.

It has been widely reported that Epstein had been placed on suicide watch last month after an incident in the jail. But after he was given daily psychological assessments, he was taken off suicide watch in late July, a person briefed on the matter said, and went back to the facility's special housing unit, which is a section more restricted than the general population.

He initially had a cellmate in the special housing unit, but that person was removed for unknown reasons, the source with knowledge of Epstein's time at the prison told CNN.

It's protocol for inmates coming off suicide watch not to be placed alone in a cell, according to the source.

CBS News reports on the morning of Jeffrey Epstein's death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell. Corrections officers attempted to revive him while saying "breathe, Epstein, breathe."

Guards are supposed to check on inmates in the special housing unit every 30 minutes, a source with knowledge of Epstein's time at the prison previously told CNN. The two prison staff members who'd been guarding the unit where Epstein died allegedly failed to check on him that night for about three hours, report numerous media outlets citing several law enforcement and prison officials with knowledge of the investigation.

According to our friends at the New York Post, the two Manhattan jail guards tasked with monitoring Epstein before he died fell asleep on the job and fudged the log entries to show they checked on him and other inmates when they actually didn’t, according to reports.

Surveillance video reviewed after Epstein’s death showed the guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center never made some of the inspections noted in the log, sources told The Post late Tuesday. The New York Post's Tamar Lapin and Larry Celona report falsifying of the logs could amount to a federal crime.

After those facts were revealed the warden at the MCC was reassigned and the two guards who were supposed to be watching the pedophile financier were placed on administrative leave while federal authorities investigate the death.

Under the jail’s protocol, Epstein would not have been given a bedsheet had he been on suicide watch. He was placed on suicide watch last month after he was found on the floor of his cell with bruises on his neck, but for reasons that have yet to be adequately explained Epstein was taken off suicide watch and returned to the jail’s special housing unit for inmates needing close supervision.

While the exact manner of Epstein’s death has not been officially announced, WKBN News reports a second person familiar with operations at the jail said the financier was discovered in his cell with a bedsheet around his neck. That person likewise spoke on condition of anonymity for the same reason.

The (UK) Sun reports Epstein was clearly at risk with reports pointing to his bizarre behavior in the days leading up to his suicide. “The twisted tycoon was living like a pig after his first suicide attempt, it has been claimed,” wrote The Sun’s Jon Rogers.

He was eating his meals off the floor and constantly requesting more toilet paper and lived "like a pig in a sty", a source told Mr. Rogers.

“Every single person in the Justice Department - from your Main Justice headquarters staff all the way to the night-shift jailer - knew that this man was a suicide risk, and that his dark secrets couldn’t be allowed to die with him,” wrote Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, in a letter to Attorney General William Barr.

We agree with Senator Sasse, everyone knew Jeffrey Epstein was at risk of death in prison, either from suicide, or by the hand of others determined to protect the dark secrets he knew and has now taken to the grave.
