Except he probably didn't. That was widely dismissed as a common tactic to force a removal to a different facility or a different place within the facility.The New York Times and other outlets have reported that Epstein had attempted suicide a few weeks earlier, on July 23
I have no confidence at all that Epstein killed himself. This is just too convenient for a lot of people with a lot of money and power.
While it closes the case on Epstein I don't know why the evidence collected can't be used to pursue investigation of the people named. I'm waiting for the "terrible accidental fire, evidence destroyed" story.
