The truth is starting to come out in the case of Jeffrey Epstein, the wall street investor who was found hanging in his jail cell back in August, after being accused of sex crime against underage women.
The 2 guards on duty the night of Epstein’s murder have been charged with falsifying the logs of exactly when they performed checks on Epstein. They were supposed to conduct 5 scheduled checks during their shift on August 10th between 12 AM to 8 AM. Their slips say the checks happened but feds say not one check really did happen. Actually, the men were actually at their desks shopping for furniture and motorcycle deals. For 2 hours, they did not move and appeared to be sleeping. Both guards confessed to skipping their checks.
Epstein was found dead at 6:33 AM. He was on suicide watch which placed him in a special housing unit with more supervision.
Both guards, Tova Noel and Michael Thomas, face one count of conspiracy to falsifying records, which carries a max of 5 years in prison. Additionally, Noel was given 5 counts of falsifying records, while Thomas was charged with 3 counts. Each carrying a max sentence of 5 years.
Epsteins team has not ruled out any theories of his death. It was ruled a suicide 3 small fractures in his neck prove otherwise. The chance of someone strangling him and then putting a sheet around his neck to look like a suicide is a possibility. At least one forensic expert claims the autopsy is missing DNA evidence.
