‘Shouting And Shrieking’ Heard From Epstein’s Jail Cell Morning Of Apparent Suicide

On Tuesday morning, CBS News reported that “shouting and shrieking” was heard from inside registered sex offender and multimillionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein’s jail cell at Metropolitan Correction Center the morning he died.

“CBS News has learned that the morning of Jeffrey Epstein’s death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell. Guards attempted to revive him while saying ‘breathe, Epstein, breathe,'” the report said.

As noted by journalist Yashar Ali, the report is not entirely clear about whom all the “shouting and shrieking” was coming from. “This CBS news story is poorly written. It’s unclear if the shrieking is from the guards or from Epstein or someone else,” Ali tweeted.

As previously noted by The Daily Wire, it was announced on Sunday night that Epstein’s autopsy had been completed, though most details of the report remain undisclosed. According to an announcement from the New York City medical examiner, his cause of death “is pending further information,” a common determination.

According to multiple media reports, Epstein was found to have allegedly hanged himself on Saturday morning in his MCC cell and was transferred to a hospital in Manhattan, where he arrived in cardiac arrest. According to CBS News, Epstein’s body was identified by his estranged brother Mark.

Chief Medical Examiner Barbara Sampson said Epstein’s representatives hired celebrity pathologist Michael Baden “to conduct an independent autopsy and they were allowed to observe the autopsy,” The Daily Beast reported. Baden is known as the “Death Correspondent” for Fox News, according to the Evening Standard, and has been involved in the high-profile deaths of John Belushi, Anna Nicole Smith, and Michael Brown, and testified at the infamous OJ Simpson trial. The doctor has also “examined more than 20,000 bodies and was host of the HBO TV show Autopsy,” the outlet noted.

Though initial reports claimed Epstein was on suicide watch at the time of his apparent suicide, The New York Times said this week that the disgraced financier was taken off suicide watch 11 days before he reportedly hanged himself.

The registered sex offender was found with marks around his neck three weeks ago, but, as noted by The Daily Wire’s Ashe Schow, it’s unclear if the injury to his neck was from a suicide attempt, an attempt to get transferred to another prison, or an attack from another inmate.

The Times also reported that Epstein was supposed to be checked on every half-hour, but the jail failed to do so. “Mr. Epstein was supposed to have been checked by the two guards in the protective housing unit every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not followed that night, a law-enforcement official with knowledge of his detention said,” the report stated.

According to The Washington Post, Epstein’s cellmate was abruptly transferred to another cell on Friday, hours before Epstein hanged himself. The sudden transfer is being investigated.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Wire website.

    Murder by cellmate, then why scream??

  • Bill says:

    Well, if there was screaming and shouting coming from Epstein’s cell that OBVIOUSLY means he was killed. If you’re going to commit suicide, one’s not going to be yelling for help!!!! Duh.

  • norman says:

    His cellmate was removed earlier so he or someone else could end his life and possibly get a number of sex-addict politicians off the hook.

    • scot_belle says:

      In one of the reports….it was divulged that the ‘suicide watch’ was ……..ended, by the request of Epstein’s own Attorneys. No way to know whether that was true or not, but it does tend …………to feed the speculations.

  • Dolores Herrmann says:

    They’ve got to look for the needle hole even if they have to shave his whole body. He most likely was afraid for his life knowing the KKKlintons.

  • Jamie says:

    Autoerotic asphyxiation.

  • Evangeline says:

    This isn’t even newsworthy since it says they don’t know who was shouting. It could have just been the guards when they found him, trying to revive him.

  • Talkster says:

    I’ll bet he’s still alive.

  • Keren says:

    When he was found in the cell, it has repeatedly described that he was in cardiac arrest… In every photo of the transfer of Epstein, absolutely NO ONE is doing CPR. He isn’t declared dead until after he is taken to the hospital. So why isn’t ONE EMT doing CPR? If he was deceased, why wasn’t his body wrapped in a shroud? He has a bruise on his left cheek in the photo of him being wheeled from the cell…. No one is asking how that came about. This who case wreaks!
