The mysterious circumstances surrounding accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s death continues to trouble the American people.
Every hour, more disturbing facts come to light.
And what happened right before Jeffrey Epstein died caused all hell to break loose.
When Epstein allegedly killed himself in a Manhattan jail cell, he was by himself and not being checked on by the guards.
The day before Epstein allegedly committed suicide, a prisoner was supposed to be transferred into his cell.
That prisoner transfer never took place, and Epstein was dead the next day.
The Washington Post reports:
Corrections officers had not checked in on financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein for “several” hours before he was found hanging in his cell Saturday, a person familiar with the matter said, just one in a series of missteps in the hours leading up to his death.
Officers should have been checking on Epstein, who was being held in a special housing unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City, every 30 minutes, and, under normal circumstances, he also should have had a cellmate, according to the person familiar with the matter and union officials representing facility employees.
But a person who had been assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday, and — for reasons that investigators are still exploring — he did not receive a new cellmate, the person familiar with the matter said Sunday night. That left Epstein, who had previously been placed on suicide watch, alone and unmonitored — at least in the hours before his death — by even those officers assigned to guard him.
Even with Epstein’s connections to the rich and powerful, and the fact he could have implicate some of them in his crimes, many Americans still cannot understand how this was allowed to happen and that proper procedure was not followed given the high profile of the case.
Until the American people get real and believable answers about how Epstein died conspiracy theories will continue to flourish.
