Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein has died by suicide in his Manhattan jail early Saturday morning, three law enforcement officials told ABC News.

I don't buy that he committed suicide at all. If anything he was probably murdered, given how many rich people were involved with his sex trafficking. Dammit!
oh looks like someone just got "Clintoned"

Apparently he was just taken off of suicide watch when this happened... but I'm not sure if that makes this more or less suspicious.

But...BUT...what a relief to all the people he had dirt on though right? What are the ODDS that the guy who might have made sleazy immunity deals to save himself by selling out anyone he had dirt on goes on to commit suicide in jail when NOBODY was looking? Talk about a lucky break!

Apparently he had a list written down of names. The authorities should get that ASAP, and also find and tracked down other people who were involved him. They really can't let this die, even if the biggest perpetrator has been offed.

Sounds like when he did it, the guards missed their 30 minute routine check on him... AND his cellmate was inexplicably transferred out.

My mom just died last night. Her 72nd birthday was just last month and she made it longer than my sisters and I thought she would. I didn't want to put it in a separate thread, but I don't want to derail this one either.

My condolences. Even when someone makes it longer than you expect, it still seems too soon.

"Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple," The Washington Post reported. "Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said."

And I'm very, very sorry, Omega Man. I can't even imagine.

We cannot tell, especially since the sentence before the one you highlighted points out that this very same piece of evidence can also be pointing towards suicide.
But even if he was indeed murdered, we won't be able to find out who did it, or ordered it.

Damn! He was great in Ulee's Gold, and Easy Rider. He actually did a lot of biker films in the sixties, and I more recently saw him in 3:10 to Yuma. Good actor. RIP!!!

"It's about time he did."

My mother's exact reaction when I told her of Fonda's death.
