Some more troubling information emerges about events leading up to the death of Jeffrey Epstein.

Remember hearing those guards were supposed to check on Epstein every 30 minutes?

Yeah, well that didn’t happen.

Courtesy of WaPo:

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.

So the most high profile prisoner in the jail, who had just tried to off himself a week or two earlier, was left on his own for hours with no monitoring whatsoever. 

Yep nothing suspicious abou that.

It appears that the excuse for this is going to be overworked guards.

The two Manhattan jail guards who allegedly failed to monitor Jeffrey Epstein before he died had been working “extreme” overtime shifts amid a severe staffing shortage at the facility, reports said Sunday.

The unidentified jailers at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center violated procedure by failing to check on Epstein every 30 minutes before he apparently committed suicide in his cell, sources told Reuters.

One guard was working his fifth straight day of overtime and the other was toiling under mandatory overtime, a person familiar with operations at the Lower Manhattan lockup told the Associated Press.

Oh, I see. 

So the reason that a man with information that could possibly bring down some of the most powerful people in the country, as well as a sitting US president, is dead because the guards assigned to him were a little drowsy?

Is that what they are going with?

Okay well surely the autopsy will at least prove that he did indeed commit suicide, right?

Courtesy of NBC News:

The New York City medical examiner’s office said Sunday that it had completed an autopsy of the financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein but that it needed more information before determining the cause of death.

Multiple people briefed on the investigation told NBC News that suicide remains the presumed cause of death and that no sign of foul play has emerged in the day and a half since Epstein, 66, was found unresponsive in his federal jail cell in lower Manhattan on Saturday.

What the shit?

Isn’t an autopsy the thing that they use to determine the cause of death? 

I mean they find bodies at the bottom of rivers and determine the cause of death.

They find bodies that have decomposed for weeks in locked rooms and determine the cause of death.

But the cause of death for this guy locked in a cell in the middle of the city, with guards all around him, continues to elude them? 

And if they do not know the cause of death, then how in the hell do they know it was definitly a suicide? 

I am trying so hard not to go down the conspiracy theory path, but that is becoming almost impossible at this point.

    It sounds so much like an Agatha Christie mystery or an episode of “Death on Paradise” where most murder victims are found in locked rooms or in circumstances that make finding the culprit really difficult but the investigating island police officers always find their man or woman. Epstein’s death simply has too many coincidences at this point. There may well have been foul play.

    Suddenly B Barr really really cares about the victims and the shit mess of Don Con’s federal prison in lower Manhattan, Metropolitan Correctional Center. The buck stops with DJT but BB is the man chosen to carry out his demands. DJT and BB get it done when it is what they want. They clearly had no interest to honor the victims by securely maintaining their perpetrator for trial. Had Trump wanted the perp in a secure law abiding facility, the job would have been done. Cameras would not be off, staff would not be half ass workers, protocol would have been correctly maintained and so on.

      O poor baby Barr. He is just now learning of serious irregularities at the facility. Now he can demand an investigation. If only he had known sooner he would have done his job and prevented this apparent suicide or is it a suicide?

    They must be having problems with the medial examiners work. Even if he is working on the dark side for bad guys, he does not want someone coming along later who could prove the autopsy was fraud. One school of thought is that the body was switched out and a living Epstein was escaped.
    El Chapo could never escape but maybe a rich white guy with connections could.

    Gryphen, the plot thickens…why isn’t this more widely reported?
    From Hill Reporter.com:
    “This, however, was not the first connection between Barr and his family and the disgraced pedophile. In 1973, Barr’s father Donald, the headmaster at Manhattan’s Dalton School, hired Epstein as a calculus and physics teacher…

    Epstein had not earned a college degree as he dropped out of New York’s prestigious Cooper Union. The other odd circumstance was that the new teacher was only 20 years of age.”

      Barr is not the AG for the people, he has a title he can use as he works for Trump.

      “The other thing that I hope is wrapped up in his statement that there will be justice and coconspirators will be looked at I hope he also means the corruption investigation into how Alex Acosta, Trump’s Secretary of Labor but former U.S. Attorney of Miami, got Epstein off the federal hook years ago and got him a state charge instead.”
      Alex Acosta has nothing to worry about.

      “Trump administration bumbling gave Jeffrey Epstein the opening to commit suicide.”
      Part of the plan.

      Barr can feign anger now and have a thorough investigation because he thinks he has things taken care of. He knows Trump needs to have the Clintons implicated. I can’t imagine Barr is that stupid but we’ll see.

    In 1973, Barr’s father Donald, the headmaster at Manhattan’s Dalton School, hired Epstein as a calculus and physics teacher.

    While hiring Epstein, a noted mathematics genius, was not strange on its face, the hire was unusual for a number of reasons. Epstein had not earned a college degree as he dropped out of New York’s prestigious Cooper Union. The other odd circumstance was that the new teacher was only 20 years of age.

    How hard is it for the prison to have a press conference with their details about finding him and up to when he left MCC? There are so many versions of what happened. He was found cold dead in his cell, he died at hospital, it’s all confusing. Which may be what someone wants.
    If it was suicide, experts say he would have had to pay to have help. That would be murder however it happened. His body is evidence. Do his victims have any way they can secure evidence is legitimately maintained?

    “The victims deserve justice, and we will ensure they get it.” Barr.
    Talk is cheap, show us.
    William Barr is involved, we can count on redactions. He will probably be redacting and re-writing everyones part about what they saw or know.

      1:14pm – Questions on the photo from Laura Loomer’s site:

      Where the heck was that picture taken? Wherever that picture was taken, the room is filthy. At the jail? At the hospital? What’s with all those orange FDNY backboards on the wall? Is it true that the MCC cameras “malfunctioned” at the time of Epstein’s alleged suicide? Who is the guy standing between the 2 paramedics and near Epstein, who is wearing a green shirt, black cap and a bullet proof vest?

      How hard is it for the prison to have a press conference…..

      William Barr is the official spokesperson for this apparent suicide. No reason to listen, talk or ask questions to anyone else.

  28. Anon August 12, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    The fact that the coroner needs more information is not surprising. Even when the cause of death is obvious (say, hanging because he has marks on his neck and other injuries consistent with hanging), the coroner’s job is to investigate. For example, my mom died at home unattended. The coroner originally thought it was suicide because the responding officers and EMTs reported that there were several empty rX bottles on her nightstand. But it turned out the bottles were just an antibiotic, a BP med, and iron that she had been prescribed, but had finished. They were on her nightstand and empty because she was on the phone with me the previous evening asking me to look up side effects on my computer. The coroner learned about this because she spoke to me as part of her investigation. Then her investigation focused on natural causes. The coroner asked me who her doctors were and she spoke with them to find out that she had high blood pressure, and so on. We got a preliminary cause of death that she had a heart attack. But it took a few weeks to get the final cause of death. Even though it’s reported that Epstein died from hanging and even if the report is that he was found hanging and has marks around his neck, and especially given the high profile nature of this case, the coroner will still examine any additional evidence, such as the videos and talking to those who found him, to see if it’s possible the hanging was at the hands of another, i.e. homicide rather than suicide. This is normal procedure, not some strange conspiracy.
