Jeffrey Epstein apparently committed suicide and is now deceased.

I am saying “apparently” because this is still a breaking story.

Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein is dead of an apparent suicide, law enforcement sources said Saturday.

A gurney carrying a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7:30 a.m. The ambulance went to New York Downtown Hospital.

The incident comes two weeks after Epstein, 66, was placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.

I don’t want to get all conspiratorial here, but this death comes the day after a bunch of court documents were unsealed.

Courtesy of The Daily Beast:

A young woman who says financier Jeffrey Epstein and socialite Ghislaine Maxwell kept her as a sex slave also accused a host of high-powered men of being involved in Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking ring, according to court records unsealed Friday.

Virginia Giuffre, who says that Epstein and Maxwell trafficked her to powerful people for erotic massages and sex, claimed in depositions in 2016 that Maxwell directed her to have sex with former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Britain’s Prince Andrew (whom she has accused before), wealthy financier Glenn Dubin, former senator George Mitchell, now-deceased MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, and modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel, as well as “another prince,” a “foreign president,” a well-known prime minsiter” and the owner of a “large hotel chain” in France.

None of the men named in the deposition have been charged with a crime or even sued in civil court in connection with the Epstein case. The deposition represents accuser Giuffre’s allegations, and the court documents unsealed on Friday did not contain any corroboration or further details, though many documents remain sealed.

Other records also revealed that Donald Trump was listed as a passenger on Epstein’s private plane, though nothing linked him to the underage girls.

Nothing yet that is.

But now that Epstein is dead we may not see any more of these documents made public. 

How convenient.

    It is funny and convenient how you keep forgetting to mention Bill Clinton’s well documented friendship and jet travels with Epstein.

    • Gryphen August 10, 2019 at 7:30 am

      Yeah, Bill Clinton was a passenger on Epstein’s plane one or two times, but as it turns out that was not mentioned in his last document dump, and therefore not included in this post.

      If Bill diddled some little girls he should be hauled off the jail and I don’t even want them to bother with a suicide watch.

      So what is your fucking point troll?

        That you never mention Clinton in your Epstein posts, thought that point was fairly obvious lol.

        It’s my understanding that Clinton used the jet a few times but never to accompany Epstein to his destination and it’s well-documented that he never visited ANY of Epstein’s hangouts. I know that more than once Clinton went to Africa on Epstein’s jet and Epstein was definitely not on board and neither were any high school girls.

        And you’re right, Gryphen, Bill Clinton doesn’t go for sex with children.

      Clinton was (and may still be) a horn dog, but his perv swerve doesn’t seem to have been towards underage girls.

      On the other hand, we Trump who:
      made jokes about dating his own daughter
      recounts how gobsmacked he was by “beautiful, gorgeous Paris Hilton” when he first met her at age 12
      laughed about walking in on undressed teenaged beauty pageant contestants because when you own the pageant you’re allowed to “inspect the merchandise”
      joked to a 10 y.o. girl he saw in Trump Tower that “I’ll be dating you in ten years”

      Oh, and let’s not forget that then teenaged Ivanka, when pageant contestants complained to her about her dad walking in on them, sighed and said, “yeah, he does that sometimes…” . I wont even bother addressing all the gag-inducing photos of Donald and Ivanka Trump.

      Now, all that being said, who seems more likely to have a vested interest in Epstein’s permanent silence?

    Of course his “suicide” is suspicious. A lot of powerful men were implicated just this week in Epstein’s sex trafficking case (now dropped). How does someone, who is on suicide watch, commit suicide? There better be an investigation into the Department of Correction’s personnel and surveillance tapes.

    “more than 2,000 pages of documents provide the greatest details yet”-” “Don’t forget Alan Der$HOWitz,”-“Palm Beach police recovered receipts from Epstein’s trash that showed he ordered books on Amazon about sadomasochism and how to use sex slaves. A photograph of an Amazon receipt under Epstein’s name showed several titles, including
    SM 101: A Realistic Introduction, A Workbook for Erotic Slaves and Their Owners, and SlaveCraft: Roadmaps for Erotic Servitude.”

    “A woman once employed to be Epstein’s personal masseuse testified that he said he needed “at least three orgasms” every day day.
    “It was biological, like eating,” said Johanna Sjoberg. “I thought it was a little crazy.”

    “Juan Alessi, Epstein’s former house manager, testified he saw “probably over 100” girls serve Epstein at his Palm Beach home over 10 years. After each encounter, Alessi said, he would clean up the home’s upstairs massage room. In multiple occasions, he said, he found “vibrators or sex toys” and put them in Maxwell’s closet because he “knew that’s where they kept” such items, along with a “shiny black costume.””

    “The story describes a world where only a “selective clientele” had access to girls “trained to fulfill every sexual desire asked of them, no matter how bizarre the requests might be.”

        Epstein’s sudden death has angered some of his accusers.

        Civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents some of the women who have accused Epstein, said they still plan to hold those involved responsible.

        Epstein had been on suicide watch after he was found with injuries on July 23. The New York Times reported he received a daily psychiatric evaluation and then was removed from suicide watch on July 29. He was returned to the special housing unit, a separate area of the prison with extra security, according to reporting from the Times.

        In response to the unusual circumstances around Epstein, U.S. Attorney General William Barr ordered an investigation into Epstein’s death, saying he was “appalled” to learn Epstein was found dead from an apparent suicide in federal custody.

        “Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered,”

    “I’m hearing that he may have been on suicide watch and taken off suicide watch, but there still are a lot of questions about what that earlier incident was, whether or not officials or medical providers saw it just as maybe a cry for help and not a serious suicide threat,”
    “And the statistics show far and away, more likely to commit suicide are pretrial detainees and within the first few days or weeks of their detention,” added Cevallos. “And that’s exactly where Jeffrey Epstein was. It’s only been a couple of weeks, if that, since he was held without bail. Since he had his bail hearing and bail was denied, but far and away, detainees, people awaiting their trial, and particularly people charged and convicted of sex offenses are at high risk of suicide, more than prisoners who have been convicted and serving their sentence, at supermax or minimum security.”

      on Saturday evening elevated a conspiracy theory claiming accused serial sex-abuser Jeffrey Epstein was murdered behind bars by the Clinton family—and his aides say they were expecting it.

      The White House, unsurprisingly, did not provide comment for this story. Still, this comes as no shock to those working in Trumpworld. One White House official said that as soon as Clinton conspiracy theories began bubbling up online about Epstein’s passing, this official and other senior aides to Donald Trump immediately assumed that the president, an avid, longtime conspiracy theorist, would very soon tweet or say something about it.
      “Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right!…#JefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead,” read the tweet by Terrence K. Williams. “I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! RT if you’re not Surprised.”

      The message ended with, “#EpsteinSuicide #ClintonBodyCount #ClintonCrimeFamily.”

      Still, the president had his defenders and those in his orbit who went farther than he did. Lynne Patton, a Trump family friend and an official at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, posted to Instagram a caption suggesting Epstein was “Hillary’d!!” “I think Trump is just stirring the plot. The left loves conspiracies as much as the right.”

      The new documents, numbering 2,000 pages, portrayed Epstein as an insatiable pervert who demanded a daily diet of three orgasms and who left scores of teenage girls — some as young as 14 — sexually assaulted and emotionally shattered.

      There’s no question Epstein should have been under continual watch, said Cameron Lindsay, a former warden who ran three federal jails and who called the death a “shocking failure.”

      “Unequivocally, he should have been on active suicide watch and therefore under direct and constant supervision,” Lindsay said.

      “It’s embarrassing,” one federal law-enforcement source told The Post of Epstein.

      “This is the highest-profile inmate in that facility, and considering that he may have attempted suicide two weeks ago — how could they let this happen?”

      Mayor de Blasio tweeted, “Some of wealthiest people in the world committed a horrible crime. If they think for a second that they got away with it because Jeffrey Epstein is dead, they’re dead WRONG.”

    Without a doubt Barr/Trump and authorities would know. There is no way Epstein would not be watched and protected from himself. Barr works for Trump, he is not the AG for the people, although we pay him (taxes). Epstein should have been on watch for any and all of his dangerous addictions.

    The previous alleged suicide is one thing. He was only on watch for about one week.

    A non-corrupt DOJ and authorities would also protect the prisoner from the adverse erotic asphyxiation consequences. Erotic asphyxiation addiction is a deadly medical situation.
    The system is negligent if they did not watch and make certain the prisoner was safe and protected from this.

    If Epstein died from erotic asphyxiation that should be stated as cause of death.
