The circumstances around Jeffrey Epstein’s high profile suicide got even more mysterious with new updates over the weekend. Only two days before he died, the millionaire widely accused of being a serial pedophile put all of his assets into a trust. He also made out a will, allegedly leaving every penny of his $577 million fortune to his brother, Mark.
This means that the growing list of accusers may have been screwed by Epstein yet again. The victims trying to get restitution, by suing his estate, could be left empty handed. The documents were filed in the Virgin Islands, where Epstein has his own private playground for pedophiles.
Epstein tucked all of his assets away in what he called the “1953 Trust,” that being the year he was born. The document lists $56.5 million in cash, “equities” worth more than $300 million, and he had an annuity that paid out $14 million as a “fixed income.” He also owned “six luxury properties,” including homes in New York, Florida and Paris, according to reports. His planes, cars, and boats were worth another $18 million. It totals up to over $577 million.
His private jet, the infamous “Lolita express,” is widely reported to have ferried a laundry list of rich and famous people — like Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew — to frolic in the island sun with Epstein’s teenage sex-slaves. There are a lot of very powerful and high profile celebrities who didn’t want Epstein saying a single word in court. So many, that Epstein should have been provided round-the-clock protection from his enemies. The prison system couldn’t even be bothered to protect Epstein from himself.
Heavy rumors are going around that the guards and officials were heavily greased to let Epstein slip into the afterlife. His death is certainly convenient. His will may have left the prison the possession of his attorney, but that doesn’t let everyone off the hook. Legal matters are “privileged,” but as an “officer of the court” the lawyer had a duty to alert authorities that Epstein was preparing for death. Especially since he had been found unconscious once, and put on suicide watch.
Attorney General William Barr is looking into the “serious irregularities” at the facility. He fired the acting chief of the federal Bureau of Prisons. After Epstein was taken off suicide watch, he was still supposed to be checked every 30 minutes. The night he died, one of his guards wasn’t even a real guard, just a “warm body.” The logs were fudged to show he had been checked on schedule when nobody looked in on him for hours. Another eyebrow raiser is that Epstein’s cellmate was pulled out the day before. The whole thing smells fishy to everyone.

Epstein had been previously charged with similar crimes in Florida but managed to score the plea deal of the century. He was only charged with one count and allowed to serve his slap-on-the-wrist sentence of 13 months in jail on a work release program. All he had to do was check in at night to sleep there, then could be back with his playmates in the morning.
That deal is being put under the microscope now because Epstein’s death could open the door to prosecuting his enablers who were totally shielded with immunity. His partner in crime, Ghislaine Maxwell, is at the top of the list. She has been laying low but the media tracked her down in Los Angeles.
