The lawyer for three of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged victims says he has been told by a “prison source” that convicted pedophile was murdered.
“Spencer Kuvin, who previously predicted that Epstein would not live to see his trial, alleges that an anonymous prison worker contacted him to say it was ‘highly unlikely’ the 66-year-old killed himself,” The Daily Mail reports.

“The first words out of his mouth to be honest were, ‘Don’t believe what you are hearing’ in regards to Epstein’s death. I had a lengthy conversation with him about the issue of security within MCC and he gave me a fairly detailed description of the interior of the jail, which led me to believe that he was credible,” the Sun reported.
“He told me how the SHU (special housing unit) where Mr Epstein was kept was basically designed to be a jail within the jail.
“And then there was a separate, even more secure unit, inside the SHU where the highest value targets were kept.
“He said every square inch of that place is covered by cameras. It was designed that way because of super high value targets that are kept there such as terrorists, drug dealers and other extremely high value targets or suspects like Mr Epstein.
“If reports that there is no CCTV are true – it would mean that they’d either shut the cameras off or they were not functioning in some way. He says there’s no way that they would not have been able to see what was going on.”
Epstein reportedly committed suicide on Aug. 9, shortly after more than 2,000 documents were unsealed. In an unusual move, Epstein’s cellmate had been moved just hours before Epstein’s body was found.
The claim that Epstein was murdered came as France opened a preliminary probe into whether the billionaire committed crimes on French territory or against any under-age French victims.
