When the billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell back in August of 2019, many were skeptical that he had actually committed suicide, as his death seemed way too convenient for the people in power who he could possibly incriminate. Now, some new evidence has come to light suggesting that he really did not commit suicide.
Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) records that were obtained by the New York Times show that in the days leading up to his death, Epstein had repeatedly said that he was not suicidal. Medical staffers even described him as “cooperative,” “future-oriented,” “goal-directed,” and “psychologically stable.”
These records include extensive psychological examinations of Epstein that show that he “adamantly” told psychologists at the New York City prison where he was being held that he had “no interest in killing himself,” adding that he “would not do that” to himself even if. he wanted to because he was a “coward” who was terrified of physical pain. Days before his death, Epstein was also saying that he had “lots to do for [his] legal case” and that “being alive is fun,” adding that “it would be crazy” to commit suicide because he “has a wonderful life.”
“Mr. Epstein stated ‘I have no interest in killing myself,'” reads one of the BOP documents. “He explained although his situation is ‘not perfect’ due to his being incarcerated, he noted that he has ‘lots to do for [his] legal case.’ He described having a ‘wonderful life,’ to include interactions with ‘interesting people and projects.’ He said ‘it would be crazy’ to take his life. He furthered, ‘I would not do that to myself.’”
Epstein was described as being “future-oriented” in one review because he firmly believed that he was about to be released on bail.
While he denied being suicidal, Epstein was also expressing fears for his own safety to officials at the Special Housing Unit (SHU) of the prison. He had even asked to be moved to psychological observation or general population, which are viewed as safer units, to get away from the MS-13 gang members that were being housed with him.
“Mr. Epstein did express a feeling of safety being housed on Psychological Observation rather than in the SHU,” one of the BOP documents states. “He asked if he could remain on this status for a couple of days, he was advised his housing situation will be re-evaluated on a day-to-day basis.”
“He expressed a desire to be housed in general population rather than in the SHU and asked if there were a ‘safer’ unit for him to be housed in comparison to the one where he was initially placed,” this document added. “Mr. Epstein claimed there were many MS-13 gang members on the initial unit.”
Most of Epstein’s time in the days leading up to his death was spent with lawyers and psychologists. These documents have conveniently come to light just days before Epstein’s alleged former madam Ghislaine Maxwell is set to go on trial.
