Speculation, Opinion and Analysis by K The Baish| Reports have indited that multimillionaire/close Clinton family friend/accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein died by suicide while incarcerated… with exactly zero surveillance cameras watching him at the time.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Guards found Epstein, a wealthy financier and convicted pedophile, dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan on Saturday morning. Epstein was being held on charges of sex trafficking.
No cameras caught his apparent suicide because, though cameras monitor the facility, they only scan common areas and outside the prison, not inside the cells, sources familiar with the facility told the New York Post.
Epstein’s body was released to the New York City’s medical examiner by authorities.
According to the Examiner, “Epstein’s death comes two weeks after he was taken off suicide watch. He was placed under constant surveillance after guards found him lying in his cell nearly unconscious with marks around his neck last month. After authorities took Epstein off suicide watch, guards were supposed to still check in on him every half hour. That practice reportedly was not done the night of his death.”
Sources familiar with the correctional facility in question tell TMZ, there are cameras in the Special Housing Unit — the SHU — but SOP is that cameras do not point into the cells. We’re told cameras capture, among other things, the doors to each cell to determine if anyone walks in or out, but they don’t point inside.
One source familiar with the facility says the drill is for guards to pass by each cell in intervals ranging from 15 to 30 minutes depending on the circumstances.
Unless there’s a one-off cell with a camera pointing inside — and we’re told there have been rare situations where this is the case — the time and manner of his death may never be captured.
ABC reports that the FBI and the DOJ are looking into Epstein’s death:
