4Chan User Reports Epstein Suicide 30 Minutes Prior to ABC
The circumstances surrounding the death of Jeffrey Epstein continue to grow increasingly more alarming. Reports of Epstein’s alleged suicide came in via ABC News just before 9 AM on Saturday morning (August 10). But a new report claims that the news actually broke just over 30 minutes prior on the 4Chan network.
ABC’s Aaron Katersky made the initial report confirming that Epstein died.

However, a report by Buzzfeed News claims that the initial details of the story began breaking at 8:16 AM, a full 38 minutes prior to Katersky’s Tweet.
“[D]ont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this,” the 4Chan user claimed.
Of course, the user wasn’t initially believed, however, he/she provided insanely accurate details of Epstein’s death as a way to provide some proof of legitimacy. The person disclosed the resuscitation efforts made by prison guards, details that didn’t emerge until at least a day following the grim discovery. Buzzfeed News reached out to Deputy Commissioner for FDNY Frank Dwyer who denied the 4Chan user was a firefighter that potentially worked on the scene.
“An investigation is a formal act which brings about a process which includes interviewing witnesses, serving notice, determining credibility of witness statements — and that was not warranted nor did it take place here. This determination was made after a review of the incident. We looked at the information provided by [a BuzzFeed News] reporter and we looked at our own records and there was no match. It doesn’t match our medical records.” He said.
Others claim the 4Chan user leveraged predictable, basic medical information to stir the pot. Dr. Keith Wesley, a physician who specializes in emergency medicine, told Buzzfeed News that the user regurgitated “telemetry advised bicarb” that’s the protocol in cases such as Epstein’s suicide. In other words, the first responders must speak to medics, and medics could be the cause of the 4Chan breach.
But EMT workers Local 2507 in New York, like the FDNY, claim they had no part in this information breach.
Our members do not release this type of confidential information. This looks like a 3rd party info,” adding that the union would investigate “if such a claim came forward.” Oren Barzilay concluded, “There’s serious consequences for those violations. Discipline. Suspensions. Civil penalties, etc.”
So then how did a seemingly random 4Chan user break the news of a high-profile prisoner’s death before every major news network in the world? There seems to be little in the way of logical explanations. And this is helping to make the Epstein ‘suicide’ case one of the most baffling and complex of our time.
As it stands, Epstein was inexplicably removed from suicide watch 24 hours prior to his death, even though he’d been accused of ot attempting suicide in the week prior. The prison changed up the guards on Epstein’s unit, removing the ones that had typically guarded him. Not to mention, the public at large willfully joked over the potential for Epstein to turn up “suicided.”
The entire situation is unconscionable. Although Attorney General William Barr remains infuriated over Epstein’s death, we aren’t likely to ever know the truth given that those with a motive to kill Epstein are the rich and powerful among us. One thing is for sure, Epstein’s death serves as the apex to climate of complete public distrust in all things government (on both sides).
