Accused sex trafficker and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was reportedly found unconscious and in fetal position on the floor of his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City on Wednesday while awaiting trial for his alleged crimes. The wealthy financier was also found with marks around his neck. However, it is still unclear whether or not his injuries were self-inflicted. As a precautionary measure, the correctional facility has placed Epstein on suicide watch while officials conduct an investigation, but according to NBC News 4, details are still murky.
Epstein, 66, is facing up to 45 years in prison if he is convicted of sex-trafficking and conspiracy charges, and following his arrest one week ago, a New York judge denied him bail as he is believed to be both a flight risk and danger to the public.
A raid of Epstein’s New York City townhouse nearly three weeks ago was likewise said to have turned up “dozens of loose diamonds, $70,000 in cash and a trove of sexually suggestive pictures,” as well as a fake Austrian passport with Epstein’s likeness listing a Saudi Arabia address.
With ties to President Donald Trump (who was previously accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at one of Epstein’s parties), the Clintons, and other high profile men in power, it would appear that more than a few people would sleep easier at night if Epstein were out of the picture — especially considering that Epstein could potentially trade damning testimony on any of the aforementioned individuals in exchange for a plea deal.
As such, Twitter is full of conspiracy theories as to what really happened to Epstein in his jail cell that night, and many are not buying that his injuries were self inflicted.
soooo were all in agreement that we think someone’s gonna kill epstein before he gives up names right?

It seems a little too obvious to hire a mob-connected killer cop to do a jailhouse hit on Epstein but these are rich assholes who flew the Lolita Express to Pedo Island for years with total impunity so I can understand why they feel above the law because most of them are

I look forward to having breakfast with my superior tomorrow, completely bloodshot, bugging eyes, showing him my 15” x 18” diagram explaining who I believe is behind the Epstein murder attempt and how, exactly, it is related to Princess Diana

Remember when Trump tweeted "If Epstein goes to jail he might tell about my underage sex adventures- and that won't do! I have associates who will make sure something happens to him!"

Suicide attempt? A lot of people would be far more comfortable with Jeffrey Epstein dead. The Clintons, Prince Andrew, and even Trump could be implicated. Epstein could also be trying to get a transfer to medical or another facility. On bail, he would be a target. pic.twitter.com/2kw1NiPgow

A few others had the same joke about who really might be involved:
Bruce Wayne turns to Alfred as he pulls the cowl over his face, heading out to kill Jeffrey Epstein: "I went to one party. I’m not going down for this."

If nothing else, who knew that people would be agreeing with Ann Coulter here?
Dear Bureau of Prisons: Please get Jeffrey Epstein to a super Max prison pronto, or the people who want him dead will make sure we never know the truth. ACT NOW!
