While everyone was distracted by Robert Mueller’s daytime drama on Wednesday, Jeffrey Epstein was found unconscious on the floor of his cell. Bill Clinton’s pedophile party buddy is housed in the same Manhattan jail as El Chapo, Metropolitan Correctional Center.
Details are sketchy but the social-media speculation is spreading like wildfire. Did the billionaire try to kill himself, knowing he faces several decades of rats and bad food?
Epstein was denied bail because he’s such a flight risk. When police searched his townhouse, they “turned up dozens of loose diamonds, $70,000 in cash and a trove of sexually suggestive pictures. They also found a fake Austrian passport with Epstein’s picture, listing an address in Saudi Arabia.”
The only other possibility is that it was an attempted murder.
Based on what official sources have already confirmed, suicide does not seem to be the most likely answer. The mainstream network media is heavily favoring it though.
Analyzing the disclosed evidence shows the bulk of it points to murder. The questions then become, who, why, and how could it happen in the “Guantanamo of New York?”
According to News4, sources with direct knowledge of the investigation say Epstein was “semi-conscious with marks on his neck” when found, reportedly “in a fetal position inside his cell.” After examination at the hospital, Epstein had suffered “superficial injuries to his neck.”
Epstein is expected back at the jail on Thursday after treatment. He will be placed on suicide watch.
Considering he was found alone in his cell — which they don’t say was locked or not — but probably was, suicide looks like the obvious conclusion.
Two of the sources believe that is what happened. A third source speculated that since the injuries weren’t that serious, Epstein might have been angling for a transfer. The fourth reminded everyone that assault hasn’t been ruled out.
If Epstein had used a bed sheet or some other device to strangle himself, the reports would have mentioned it. He had injuries to his neck, not his “throat,” so he didn’t try to swallow something.
Without a rope or something similar, a person cannot strangle himself. He would lose his grip along with consciousness and wake up.
He was found curled in a ball on the floor, as if he had fought off an attacker. Prison officials had the same idea. They followed through and actually interviewed another inmate about it. Nicholas Tartaglione would not have been interrogated unless there was a possibility he had access to Epstein.
There’s a pecking order in prison and child molesters are on the lowest rung. Guards look the other way while inmates exact justice. While that could be a motive, Epstein has a lot more powerful enemies.
Many on Twitter think it was a hit. That is, of course, total speculation.
Clinton's next victim

The inmate that was interviewed as a suspect is an ex-cop who murdered four guys in a coke deal and buried them in his yard.
Recently Tartaglione was caught in possession of a cell phone. He denied the phone was his and he denies that he tried to kill Epstein. Not that he is all that trustworthy considering what he did while still a cop to put him there in the first place.
Court records show the former Westchester County police officer “was arrested in December 2016 and accused of killing four men in an alleged cocaine distribution conspiracy, then burying their bodies in his yard in Otisville in Orange County.”
Tartaglione says he didn’t do it, he wasn’t there, he didn’t want it, he wouldn’t dare. In other words, the same old song you hear in every prison. According to his lawyer, Bruce Barket, “They are in the same unit and doing well.” Any claim “that Tartaglione might have assaulted Epstein is absolutely not true.”
Tartaglione and Epstein “have been complaining about conditions inside the MCC including flooding, rodents and bad food.”

On July 3, guards found “an illicit cellphone” in his cell. Tartaglione insists “his cellmate had tossed it to him as correction officers approached the cell.”
Over on twitter, the #ClintonBodyCount hashtag is currently “trending.”
SafiMaasai posts, “No, we need Epstein to spill everything. I doubt this was a suicide attempt. It was a hit. Way too many wealthy ppl w/dark secrets Epstein knows abt & has irrefutable proof. He shd be in protective custody.(Unless this’s a sham to get Epstein released on bond.) Anyone can be pd off$$.”
