Leave it to the internet to publish a story before the MSM, even a high profile “suicide”. 38 Minuets before any major news outlet reported the death of Jeffery Epstein, an anon user on 4Chan posted “dont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this”. Attached to the post was an image of Pepe the Frog in a kings crown and robe. In typical 4Chan fashion, other posters began seeking more information from the anonymous poster. Eventually obliging others by sharing details of the methods responders used in an attempt to resuscitate Epstein.
Unfortunately, the information could not be verified due to FDNY department policies and HIPPA rules, the details of Epstein’s death were accurate. This though has become overshadowed by the massive breakdown and ineptitude of the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Early in the day, reports of shrieking from Epstein’s cell were heard. We have also learned that one of the guards on duty was not a regular correctional office.
Attorney General Barr has since reassigned the warden of the MCC and placed the correctional officers on leave pending FBI and OIG investigations.
Department of Justice spokeswoman Kerri Kupec, in a prepared statement said, “Today, the Attorney General directed the Bureau of Prisons to temporarily assign the warden at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York to the Bureau’s Northeast Regional Office pending the outcome of the FBI and OIG investigations into the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, a former MCC inmate.”–CNBC
“FCI Otisville Warden James Petrucci has been named Acting Warden of the MCC New York. The Bureau of Prisons also placed on administrative leave two MCC staff assigned to Mr. Epstein’s unit pending the outcome of the investigations. Additional actions may be taken as the circumstances warrant.”
We also have learned today that the FBI has seized computers and storage devices from Epstein’s “Pedo” Island.
This unfortunate and odd tale continues to develop, and we will continue to report as we learn more.
