Two Inmates In Epstein’s Block Say ‘Impossible’ He Committed Suicide

An inmate who spent months in the same prison cell block as convicted pedophile Jefferey Epstein says it is impossible for him to have committed suicide.

The former inmate said to The New York Post that there was no way any prisoner in that cell block could kill themselves.

He had been on suicide watch there, presumably without access to a belt or shoelaces and closely monitored by guards, as is standard protocol, but was taken off the list sometime before Saturday, when he was found curled up and unresponsive.

One report said the watch was removed as recently as Thursday, but others claimed it had been in place only for about a week after the July 23 incident that left Epstein with bruises on his neck.

Jail spokesman Lee Plourde would not discuss when the watch status was removed or why, a step that would require a face-to-face evaluation and written justification, according to Bureau of Prisons policy.
