NEW YORK (PNN) - August 14, 2019 - In the latest blockbuster report about how the chronic understaffing and mandatory overtime at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) helped contribute to Jeffrey Epstein's "suicide" (or at least that's the official narrative that certain parties are trying to push), it was reported on Wednesday that the two guards tasked with monitoring Epstein's unit were asleep when the pedophile-financier tied a bedsheet around his neck and the other end to a top bunk, before pitching himself forward.
When the guards awakened after not checking on Epstein for three hours to discover, to their horror, that Epstein had apparently committed suicide, they decided to falsify records to cover their tracks, something that could draw criminal charges.
Ladies and gentlemen, have we found our patsies?
The two staff members in the special housing unit where Epstein was held - 9 South - falsely recorded in a log that they had checked on the financier, who was facing sex trafficking charges, every 30 minutes, as was required. Such false entries in an official log could constitute a federal crime.
In fact, the two people guarding Epstein had been asleep for some or all of the three hours, according to three officials.
Those disclosures came on Tuesday as the two employees were placed on administrative leave and the warden of the jail was temporarily reassigned, pending the outcome of the investigation into Epstein’s supposed death.
One of the staff members who was working to guard Epstein that night was a former corrections officer who had recently taken a desk job inside the prison. But he had recently volunteered to cover some shifts as a corrections officer once again for the extra overtime pay. The second officer, a woman who was assigned to that wing, had been forced to work overtime because of staffing shortages.
Prison staff claim they found Epstein, 66, dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday. Earlier reports said staff heard shrieking coming from his cell around the time of his death. He was awaiting trial on charges of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls. Just days before, thousands of pages of documents were released by the Fascist Police States of Amerika Attorney of the Southern District of New York's office revealing at least half a dozen new names who had never before been associated with Epstein and his sex ring, including former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and Marvin Minsky, to name a few.
It's this particularly curious timing that has prompted some to speculate that Epstein was either murdered or is still alive, and that a body double was switched for his body, since without Epstein there won't be a trial (though Attorney General William Barr has vowed to bring his co-conspirators to justice, his most prominent associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, is nowhere to be found).
