Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in Manhattan jail over the weekend. Authorities believe it was a suicide. Apparently, no foul play was involved. Epstein was placed on suicide watch two weeks ago after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with neck injuries. The financier was being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges. He was accused of sexually abusing dozens of young girls in his Upper East Side townhouse ans waterfront mansion in Palm Beach FL. He pleaded not guilty and faced up to 45 years in prison.

Alleged members of his pedophile ring sounds like a “Who’s Who?” list.

 

 A self-identified victim, Virginia Giuffre, claims she was forced to perform sex acts with Maine Senator George Mitchell, ex-New Mexico Governor and U.S. Secretary of Energy Bill Richardson, money manager Glenn Dubin and MIT professor Marvin Minsky.

The public was outraged over the fact that Epstein was not more close-watched by the prison guards. The public wanted the truth to emerge and for Epstein’s alleged co-conspirators to receive justice. Why anyone was surprised by Epstein’s suicide is beyond me.

Ralph Baker’s Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead devoted an entire chapter to corporate criminals. In the chapter “The Fred Sanfords”, Shock Exchange chronicled the corporate executives who feigned illness or ended it all when faced with their crimes, including Enron’s Ken Lay:

The former Chairman of Enron was convicted of conspiracy and fraud by manipulating Enron’s stock price to conceal billions in debt and mislead investors in what was at the time, the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history. After his conviction in May 2006, the 64-year-old Lay was expected to spend the rest of life in prison. In July 2006 Lay was found dead of an apparent hear attack in Colorado. The timing of his death appeared suspicious but the autopsy revealed no evidence of foul play.

For readers of Shock Exchange, Epstein’s suicide was expected. In a world that gave Epstein jobs above his level of intelligence and co-signed his pedophilia, there was now no way out. It is the corporate media that’s on seven second delay.
