Millionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein apparently committed suicide over the weekend. Two weeks ago Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found incapacitated in his cell with neck injuries. He was being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges. How does one commit suicide while on suicide watch? The world reacted to the incredible news:
How in the hell did New York let this happen to Jeffrey Epstein?
I thought he was on suicide watch or in protective custody to prevent this from happening?
He was at the center of a sex trafficking ring and was needed to bring justice to so many people.

(And news which *should* lead to a massive investigation, as Epstein should've been on a 24-hour suicide watch. This should've been impossible. And it strongly suggests malfeasance somewhere along the line where he was being held. He had *many* names to give up.) https://t.co/G7vvWYuFoQ

I'm not much of a conspiratorist, but how the fuck how was this guy not on a full suicide watch after the apparent attempt three weeks ago? How the fuck was he confined to any cell that offered any leverage for self-asphixiation? https://t.co/JAfqgso6OX via @ABC

What does the word suicide mean in the phrase suicide WATCH? Who was watching? Did they fall asleep? Did the camera malfunction? Was there camera surveillance? Who was he about to implicate? This is very questionable. Committing suicide on suicide watch doesnt happen.

Film maker Tariq Nasheed took to Youtube to give his thoughts:
I want to touch on that Jeff Epstein situation … He was found dead in his jail cell earlier today. A lot of people are suspicious of that … A lot of people either believes two things. He was about to expose a lot of things. This is a high-profile pedophile man … When you start dipping and exposing that stuff all of a sudden bodies start dropping … This dude was about to name names I understand. He was starting to talk about some people connected to the royal family … Either that man was murked or they got him up out of there and their doing some Weekend At Bernie’s situation.
Stay tuned …
