REPORT: Jeffrey Epstein Facing Federal Sex Trafficking Charges Commits Suicide — While On Suicide Watch

This is now the story of 2019 and who did what with Epstein will be the stuff of conspiracy theories for the rest of our lives.

How does this happen? How is one of the most important witnesses in U.S. History not under heavy 24-hour surveillance?

Disgraced millionaire Jeffrey Epstein apparently died by suicide, while on suicide watch early Saturday morning. Epstein was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges in New York.

A former law enforcement official claims Epstein was found in his cell at the Manhattan Correctional Center Saturday morning. This official was briefed on the matter but spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to discuss it publicly.

How does someone on suicide watch commit suicide? I don’t think anyone believes he committed suicide. Regardless the investigations should continue in earnest and take down anyone rep or dem that was involved. Let the house of cards come tumbling down.

Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced millionaire who was facing federal sex trafficking charges, died by suicide early Saturday in his Lower Manhattan prison cell, three law enforcement officials told ABC News.

Epstein hanged himself, law enforcement sources said. He was transported in cardiac arrest at 6:39 a.m. from Metropolitan Correctional Center to New York Downtown Hospital, according to sources.

His death came less than three weeks after he was found unresponsive in his cell at the federal prison in Lower Manhattan, with marks on his neck that appeared to be self-inflicted, sources told ABC News. [ABC News]

Honestly, did anyone believe he would make it long enough to roll over on everyone he sent girls to? He didn’t try to commit suicide last week, and he didn’t commit suicide last night. He was taken out for a reason. Sure, how does he hang himself in a jail where he has access to nothing that will aid him in doing so. He was killed because a lot of people were going down.

Just when the case gets to name names of Senators and Governors, Epstein conveniently and permanently stops talking? He was sentenced to death when he was arrested. This was the one man that could have exposed so many wealthy and powerful individuals.

Talk about a conspiracy plot. How were many super-rich and or elite possibly going down because of him? I hope they don’t stop investing this. Will the investigations of human trafficking/child pedophilia prostitution continue? No criminal acts will be found. The evidence will be destroyed, and the world will move on with other “Epstein’s” to fill the demand like the drug trade. Go into all of his properties to look for more evidence, including his private island.

Seize his assets, set up a victim fund, continue the investigation to its conclusion, including the circumstances surrounding his so-called suicide. I hope this doesn’t go away. There’s a lot of victims, and some have started naming names. This demands a special investigation into the others involved in his actions.

This is now the story of 2019 and who did what with Epstein will be the stuff of conspiracy theories for the rest of our lives. This story just became permanent.
