Agreed. And the Federal inquest will stop. That leaves only the civil suits against his rich, disgusting friends = insignificant (for them) settlements with NDAs.

Conspiracy theories rife on Reddit. He was under suicide watch, which should make hanging himself impossible - no-rip clothing, a bare room containing court documents and a book only. Hmmm...

Promi pedophile Epstein has committed suicide, or as some are already speculating was committed suicide.

Suicide? Assisted suicide? Murdered?

For someone on suicide watch, this should never have happened.

I wonder who made that decision. Especially after the first suicide attempt.

Common internet speculation for weeks was that he would end up dead before any trial. Of course, no one could have foreseen it actually happening though.

Seems convenient. I thought I'd read he was on suicide watch after a previous attempt. Why would you take someone off watch, particularly with the news that was coming out?
