Epstein’s Own Lawyers Revolt, Move to Challenge Autopsy Conclusion

JEFFREY Epstein’s lawyers are not satisfied with the autopsy report’s conclusion that the paedo died from suicide by hanging.

The disgraced financier, 66, was found dead in his jail cell with marks around his neck last Saturday – days after being taken off suicide watch.

Chief Medical Examiner Dr Barbara Sampson announced on Friday that the death was a ‘suicide’.

She said she made the determination “after careful review of all investigative information, including complete autopsy findings”.

But Epstein’s lawyers have since said they are planning to conduct an “independent and complete” investigation”.

Attorneys Martin Weinberg, Reid Weingarten and Michael Miller said they will be reviewing pivotal CCTV “if they exist as they should”.

They say they’re most interested in videos of areas around his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.

The lawyers said in a statement that it is “indisputable that the authorities violated their own protocols” at the federal lockup.

“First, no one should die in jail,” they said.

“And no one, not Mr Epstein who was presumed innocent and had violated no disciplinary rule, and not anyone should be imprisoned under the harsh, even medieval conditions at the MCC where Mr Epstein spent his final hours.

“His safety was the responsibility of the MCC. It is indisputable that the authorities violated their own protocols.

“We are not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner. We will have a more complete response in coming days.”

The paedo was found dead in his prison cell on 10 August while awaiting trial on child sex charges.

He had been on suicide watch at the prison, having been found with marks around his neck earlier on 23 July – but sources report he was taken off watch after just one week.

Epstein’s suicide by hanging came just 12 days after being removed from the suicide watch.

A version of this story appears on The Sun website.

    Good. this man did not commit suicide. He was murdered and the truth needs to come out. What a sick way to silence the truth. While I hope that his victims at least get treated respectfully.

    • J says:

      the victims will ultimately be found to have been ‘asking for it’ wait and see. we gotta ‘clean house’ ie? DRAIN THAT SWAMP.

  • Hedy says:

    The bottom line is that he knew to much.

  • Stephen Russell says:

    Hey didnt U call off the suicide watch??
    Explain.
    Did U order cameras off?
    Then whose playing Pay 2 Play

  • goodforall says:

    Barbara Sampson is a liar, a fraud, and obviously paid off to look the other way. Epstein was murdered, and we all know it!

  • Dolores Herrmann says:

    Shave his head so he can be examined thoroughly for any needle pricks ALL over his body. He could also have been strangled and the sheet put around his neck to cover any evidence of that but he’s not dead. He’s hidden somewhere maybe even in one of the Clinton’s mansions.

    • Evangeline says:

      That’s what either her or another medical examiner said just 2 days before her final verdict of suicide. She said the breaks in his neck were consistent with strangulation and NOT hanging. Then she says, “no it was suicide”. Someone must’ve either paid her off or threatened her.

    • Errol musk says:

      There’s nothing to tie a sheet to.

  • DADDY K says:

    WHAT??? DO you mean that we cannot trust the word of our government anymore?? Are you suggesting that the DOJ, FBI, CIA, etc., etc., might be telling a lie. I thought big Bill Barr stomped his feet, huffed and puffed and was going to get to the bottom of this kind of like he has done with Comey, Lynch, Clintons, etc. NOBODY from the swamp has been jailed yet. WTF is going on???????

  • DENNIS ALLEN DURKOP says:

    This video will explain the situation very thoroughly that Epstein is still alive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6k2sDxoyUI

  • MAGA says:

    “Chief Medical Examiner Dr Barbara Sampson announced on Friday that the death was a ‘suicide’.”
    She cannot say it was suicide. She did not witness him committing suicide. She can say he died of strangulation due to the sheet around his neck, but not the HE committed suicide. Or that HE put it around his own neck.

    “Happy Bill?….Hey don’t thank me all at once. I think it’d be too much with a double-tap to the melon.”–Hillbag.
    “Sloppy. Damn sloppy. The FBI has Epstein’s little black book.”–Billy Jeff.
    “What a laugh. The FBI. Right. They couldn’t make a parking ticket stick. Let’s party – with a purpose. ha, ha, ha”–Hillbag.

  • Marilynn Reeves says:

    Hell the body was not even Epstein. We want the truth.

    • Errol musk says:

      I think you might be right on this.

      Epstein was obviously no dope so he would have had a ‘file’ that would be made public if anything happened to him. Anyone with the slightest brains would do that.

      So this all seems too convenient.

      This ‘Dr’ Barbara Sampson woman must have been paid off or threatened. I’d go with the former. As someone else noted above, a coroner’s task is to establish only the cause of death, which was ‘apparently’ strangulation, not dolus eventualis, or reason for death, being “suicide”. She has no right to make that assertion.

  • steve says:

    Only thing going on here is a BOTTOM FEEDING LAWYER is going to string this man’s death out for years…..SO THE LAWYER CAN MAKE MORE MONEY!!!!!!! That’s all there is to this.

  • John Boyd says:

    Epstein had Hillary’’s 33,000 emails

  • Arlene says:

    Screams were reported coming from the area where his cell was. How could his ‘guards’ have “slept” through them???

  • Dan says:

    No one in their right mind believes this ‘official story.’ And that’s just what the LSM narrative is: a story to be fed to the masses. JE was murdered in order to help protect the Clinton Crime Syndicate. It will not work. The pats have EVERYTHING. As a person looking at his 60’s I hopr and pray to see justice in my lifetime.

  • BURNEL says:

    Other inmates in the same Jail, claim suicide to be impossible.. Eptein had multiple bones broken in his neck..

  • chris says:

    medieval conditions at the MCC??? it’s a fuking jail, not a hotel, just imagine them being in a cell with NO toilet, or running water, a small, stinking, plastic potty was all there was, and you prayed your cellmate didn’t need to have a crap during the night.

  • chris says:

    How come there has never been any mention of a will or beneficiaries either?????

  • stevor says:

    all for show to make people figure that if the lawyers are doing this, they figure he’s really dead, so everybody ought to figure he’s dead (instead of a guy who “shrieked” being switched to be killed and epstein being released as that guy)

  • Clara says:

    Has anyone thought to get any DNA on the body? It wouldn’t surprise me if someone else was in that cell.

  • Betty White says:

    Why would he commit suicide when his plea was “Not Guilty”? Since he got off “light” last time, he probably figured he’d get off light this time as well. Something’s wrong here. It doesn’t make sense to say he committed suicide when he had already entered a Not Guilty plea.

  • BRENDA N TEXAS says:

    I WILL NEVER BELIEVE IT WAS A CASE OF SUICIDE, IT WAS MURDER

  • karen bracken says:

    Anyone with half a brain knows Epstein was murdered to protect the rich and famous around the world including the vatican. The coroner more than likely feared for their life. WHY isn’t Epstein accomplice, Ms. Maxwell in jail right now??? This stinks. So much for draining the swamp.

  • Susan says:

    I am saddened by what this man is claimed to have done. He should have been in jail for a long time if he would have been found guilty.
    What should not have happened is his “declared” suicide. I stand with his attorneys on this one. Just to convenient in my viewpoint.
