The details surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s demise amount almost to a press blackout. He hung himself, ostensibly — but how? A man who was a former inmate there describes the conditions Epstein faced. New York Post:

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.

Could he have done it from the bed? No sir. There’s a steel frame, but you can’t move it. There’s no light fixture. There’s no bars.

They don’t give you enough in there that could successfully create an instrument of death. You want to write a letter, they give you rubber pens and maybe once a week a piece of paper.

Another article suggests that Epstein had to have help to kill himself, which, if the foregoing account is true, certainly makes sense.

“If he killed himself someone had to have helped him,” said Lewis Kasman, a onetime close confidant of the Dapper Don who visited the godfather several times at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in 1992.

“There are cameras going 24/7 and they’re watching 24/7. Someone had to give [Epstein] the equipment to kill himself and he had to pay for it dearly,” said Kasman, who has kept abreast of conditions in the lockup.

Kasman said the facility was “totally disgusting — worse than Guantanamo Bay.”

“There are roaches crawling all over you — in every orifice — when you sleep. The Bureau of Prisons’ answer to that is that they can’t spray. It’s toxic.”

A few things we can piece together from all this: 1. It was not easy to kill oneself in this facility; 2. Nevertheless, Epstein found a way to do it. 3. Previous inmates with money were able to get what they needed in the jail.

I don’t think it’s descending to conspiracy theory to opine that Epstein, used to living in the lap of luxury, couldn’t take the squalor of prison, plus knowing that conditions along this line were going to be his lot for the rest of his natural life. Since he had the means to buy whatever he needed, he probably did. It will be interesting to see what the FBI investigation yields.

Where did I read about he swallowed a SOCK? Or choked himself on it?

Was this former inmate in the SHU, or a regular cell?

William Barr is ultimately responsible for what goes on in Federal Prisons.

What about the surveillance cameras? We’ve heard nothing about them or what they show. Did they miraculously get shut off just like the suicide watch? There has to be some kind of evidence of comings and goings by others. Did he have visitors, phone calls? I certainly don’t trust Barr and his DOJ to keep evidence safe and uncorrupted. We’ve seen too much of how he operates on behalf of idjit. This is just more of the same.


I find it hard to believe Epstein wouldn’t have wanted to live long enough to get revenge on everyone–including our very own idiot traffic cone currently occupying the Oval Office–that assumed they could distance themselves and totally disavow knowing him: IOW, get away with what he didn’t. Since successful blackmailers never put all their eggs in one basket either, I’m pretty sure there’s a freight container’s worth of other shoes getting ready to drop.

1) Barr’s daddy hired Epstein to teach at Dalton without having credentials. 2) Epstein worked there for one year. Barr must have at least met him. Was Epstein already engaged in child sex? IMO, yes. Was Barr or his daddy connected – who the hell knows. Smoke is there. 3) Barr worked in the legal firm that defended Epstein in 2008. 4) Barr would NOT recuse himself from Epstein’s current case. Why not? He had connections even if it was just that Epstein taught at daddy’s school. Did not recuse because of 45 and his deep connections with Epstein and… Read more »
