The guards who moved pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s body after his Manhattan jailhouse suicide violated federal protocol, according to a report.
“No, that’s not normal,” said forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden in the “60 Minutes” interview airing Sunday on CBS. “The EMS people normally, and especially in a jail, should not move a dead body.”
Epstein, 66, was discovered by federal corrections guards shortly after 6:30 a.m. on Aug. 10, with one of the workers heard saying “Breathe Epstein, breathe,” according to the CBS report. His body was taken to New York Presbyterian-Lower Manhattan Hospital, but Epstein was already beyond resuscitation.
Under federal Bureau of Prisons protocol, a suicide scene must be treated with the “same level of protection as any crime scene in which a death has occurred.”
Baden, a nationally-renowned pathologist hired by Epstein’s brother Mark to investigate the death, believes the federal inmate died about two hours earlier. A pair of prison guards were indicted last year for falsifying prison logs and records in a cover-up of their failure to check on Epstein every 30 minutes as required in the defendant’s special housing unit.
Okay so to sum things up Epstein was taken off of suicide watch prematurely, his cellmate was moved out of his room for unknown reasons, the guards who were supposed to check on him every half hour apparently fell asleep at their posts for three hours, the two cameras outside of his cell “malfunctioned,” and a third camera had footage that was deemed “unusable.”
He was found kneeling in his cell with a paper thin bedsheet connected to his top bunk tied around his throat, and several broken bones in his neck.
His body was then moved before detectives coud investigate the scene.
Does any of that sound like a typical suicide to anybody?
