The absurdity of Jeffrey Epstein’s last days in this mortal realm may never be fully understood, but every morsel of information that we’ve been given indicates that the accused child sex trafficker did not receive typical treatment while imprisoned.
The medical examiner responsible for Epstein’s autopsy rushed out a hurried and frantic declaration of “suicide” on Friday – a statement that has been deemed questionable by online conspiracy theorists.
This explanation stands alone, obviously, but the evidence pointing to Epstein’s controversial treatment in Metropolitan Correctional Center continues to pile up.
A visiting attorney, who asked that his name not be used, told Forbes Thursday that he saw the young woman with Epstein on July 30, when the disgraced financier was transferred into the facility’s Special Housing Unit.
“The optics were startling,” the attorney told the outlet. “Because she was young. And pretty.”
While it is entirely possible that this visitor was simply a member of Epstein’s legal team, at least one witness believed that the extraordinary circumstances were worth noting.
“I think she was there just to babysit him, and keep him out of his cell, and just keep him company for eight hours a day,” he added. “Which is not supposed to be the way it works.”
Attorneys who hoped to utilize the space to confer with their clients were irked at the prolonged visits that Epstein experienced, as this special treatment prohibited them from continuing their work.
