The death of Jeffrey Epstein sent down shock waves and many conspiracy theories about how he might have been killed in order to safeguard the interests of his influential friends. People, online, started speculating the cause of his death and formulated hypotheses about how he might have been murdered so as to mislead investigations centered around his social circle.
The chief examiner in Newyork city Dr. Barbara Sampson ruled out the possibilities of any foul play in the whole incident and clarified that it was indeed a suicide and no possibilities of murder were found to be acceptable on the basis of the evidence.
She released a statement saying that after the autopsy report and a “careful review of all investigative information”, she has inferred that the cause of the death of Jeffrey Epstein was hanging and the manner of the death was suicide.
Three of Mr. Epstein’s lawyers, Martin G. Weinberg, Reid Weingarten, and Michael Miller, challenged the findings and vowed to conduct their own investigation. The lawyers were not satisfied with the results of the autopsy, and they are planning to conduct another wholesome medical examination privately.
Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, where he was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. On their morning check, guards in prison found him dead in his cell. He appeared to have tied a bedsheet to the top of a set of bunk beds, then knelt toward the floor with enough force that he broke several bones in his neck.
