Epstein reportedly hanged himself early Saturday morning shortly after being taken off of suicide watch.
There is no surveillance video of Epstein’s apparent suicide according to many sources familiar with the prison setup.
Jeffrey Epstein was the most high profile prisoner in the US system with connections to the world’s elite, yet there were no cameras pointing directly into his prison cell.
Epstein was taken off of suicide watch just weeks after he reportedly tried to kill himself and the prison guards, who were working overtime, broke protocol when they failed to check on him every 30 minutes.
Epstein was found dead just one day after records were unsealed implicating top Democrats and world elites including Prince Andrew.
It was reported Monday morning that Epstein’s cellmate was removed just one day before his death.
Many close to Epstein fear he was murdered and one former MCC inmate even said there is “no way” Epstein killed himself.
