The uncertainty surrounding the death of accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein continues this week after his lawyers appear to be refuting the findings of the medical examiner in the case.
Epstein’s death has been mysterious from the very start. Being deemed a suicide early on was a red flag for many observers, particularly after Epstein had just been removed from suicide watch days earlier. Of course, this is in addition to Epstein being the most infamous and well-known inmate the world over at the time of this demise. When this fact is compounded with the realization that there was a “camera malfunction” in his cell during his death, and that witnesses described hearing shrieks from his cell row during the time of the suicide, things get ever more suspicious.
On top of all that, Epstein’s neck was broken in such a way as to raise alarms for several outspoken medical professionals, all while his guards napped and forged their work logs.
All of this has culminated in serious doubt among the deceased’s lawyers.

Lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein said Friday that they were “not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner” that Jeffrey Epstein had died of suicide by hanging in jail a week ago.
In a statement, Epstein’s lawyers said his defense team “fully intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of Mr. Epstein’s death.”
That will include, they wrote, “legal action to view the pivotal videos — if they exist as they should — of the area proximate to Mr. Epstein’s cell during the time period leading to his death.”
Epstein’s alleged madame, Ghislaine Maxwell, was recently photographed in Los Angeles at an In-n-Out Burger restaurant, reading a book regarding the life and death of several CIA informants – a haunting and prescient maneuver that has many believing that the longtime friend of Epstein was trying to send a message.
