Was Jeffrey Epstein’s death faked? The lawyer claiming he’s still alive
The start to the year seemed to already be miserable for President Donald Trump but may have just gotten even wackier. We’re ten-months away from Halloween and we’re already talking about ghosts?
A Donald Trump advocate & lawyer went on the record to claim that Jeffrey Epstein, financier & accused child sex-offender, might still be alive, his alleged death by suicide possibly another chapter in the “fake news” saga. Hopefully not.
The lawyer’s take makes for a bizarre story worth a closer look. Will this hot take dismiss further Jeffrey Epstein speculation, or will President Trump be hounded for his thoughts on the matter?
Who is Jeffrey Epstein?
Born on January 20th, 1953, in Brooklyn, NY, Jeffrey Epstein began his professional career as a teacher before shifting to finance & banking, working for Bear Stearns before eventually establishing a firm of his own.
Epstein had linked himself with multiple famous personalities, rumored to have been friends with the likes of Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Prince Andrew, Tom Barrack, Woody Allen, Bill Barr, Harvey Weinstein, and many others.
In 2019, just before his death, Jeffrey Epstein’s net-worth was estimated to be north of $559 million.
Jeffrey Epstein crimes
Initial developments in the crimes of Jeffrey Epstein began sometime in 2005 when a woman claimed Epstein had sexually-abused her fourteen-year-old daughter in his mansion. This was the ugly beginning of Epstein’s case, as far as the public was aware of his predatory history.
In 2008, Epstein had plead guilty to procuring the prostitution of a girl who was younger than eighteen years-of-age, which earned Jeffrey Epstein a prison sentence of eighteen months before being released on house arrest after serving only thirteen of the months.
As we know, Jeffrey Epstein notoriously went on to be the center of multiple civil cases & trafficking charges, eventually warranting his arrest on July 6th, 2019, in New Jersey and earning him a jail sentence at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City.
Jeffrey Epstein’s death
On August 10th, 2019, Epstein was found dead in his cell after what was deemed an apparent suicide by hanging.
Rumors have circulated over the years on whether Epstein actually did the deathly deed himself or was murdered, seeing as the two cameras in front of Epstein’s cell were “malfunctioning” that night. To add to suspicion, only three weeks prior Epstein was found unconscious in his cell with neck injuries, claiming that he was attacked by his cellmate before being put on suicide watch.
Is his death a hoax?
Lawyer L. Lin Wood, who notably has defended President Trump’s claims regarding election fraud, has stated that he believes Jeffrey Epstein’s death may be fake. Wood tweeted the following:
“I am fully aware of the onslaught of attacks being made against me based on my revelations about Chief Justice John Roberts. Before attacking me, maybe fair-minded people would first ask Roberts to tell the truth. Or ask Jeffrey Epstein. He is alive.”
Wood, who seems to base his theories without evidence, joins a large group of people who simply believe that, given Epstein’s worth & numerous connections, there’s no way he can actually be dead or that if he is, it was indeed an inside job. Epstein’s former inmate and Suicide Watch Counselor has said many times that it’s impossible Epstein’s death was an inside job given prison logistics, telling people to “get over it”.
