‘Suicide attempt’ on Jeffrey Epstein, incarcerated cop possible suspect
Accused pedophile and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was found lying in the fetal position injured in his jail cell. Some sources believe that Epstein attempted suicide or faked an attempted suicide, others believe a former cop potentially attempted to harm him. Epstein currently awaits trial from his Metropolitan Correctional Center jail cell. There is no word as to whether he’ll be transferred to a safer location.
Epstein was found partly conscious with a number of injuries to his neck. Investigators say that the evidence is simply too unclear to determine exactly what happened to Epstein during the night.
Two sources told Fox 4 our of New York City that Epstein attempted to kill himself by hanging. If true, there will be no shortage of online accusations aimed towards Hillary Clinton’s camp. But others believe that the injuries sustained may be self-inflicted, the motivation being a transfer.
However, a much darker narrative of attempted murder has reared its head in the investigation. Former New York cop, Nicholas Tartaglione, is being questioned in relation to the crime. Tartaglione has an intimidating rap sheet, to say the least. He is currently serving time in the same prison as Epstein on four murder charges. The murders stem from a cocaine deal gone bad. Tartaglione buried the bodies in his backyard in an attempt to conceal the evidence.
Tartaglione claims he saw nothing. Other reports claim that Tartaglione and Epstein were close, which in some ways, doesn’t do much to defuse potential conspiracy theories.
“They are in the same unit and doing well,” said Bruce Barket, Tartaglione’s attorney. He said any claim that Tartaglione might have assaulted Epstein “is absolutely not true.”
The attorney suggests that both men have recently complained over poor jail conditions, including an abundance of rats. This suggests that Epstein may have been looking to receive a transfer.
Epstein was denied bail on July 18 and must remain incarcerated throughout his pedophilia trial. But it is no small wonder that people are questioning the details surrounding Epstein’s injuries. A long trial could reveal more criminal activity by a number of Epstein’s celebrity and political cohorts. This lends credence to why someone might be motivated to frame an Epstein suicide. Disclosing the full breadth of Epstein’s ongoings could serve to harm politicians at the highest of levels.
