‘Death’ of Jeffrey Epstein
On August 10, 2019, American financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was found unresponsive in his Metropolitan Correctional Center jail cell, where he was awaiting trial on new sex trafficking charges. After prison guards performed CPR, he was transported in cardiac arrest to the New York Downtown Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:39 a.m. The New York City medical examiner ruled Epstein’s death a suicide by hanging. Epstein’s lawyers challenged that conclusion and opened their own investigation.
On August 8, Epstein signed his last will and testament, witnessed by two attorneys who knew him. The will named two longtime employees as executors, and immediately gifted all his assets, and any assets remaining in his estate, to a trust.
On August 9, Epstein’s cellmate was transferred, and no replacement was brought in. The evening of his death, Epstein met with his lawyers, who described him as “upbeat” before being escorted back to the SHU at 7:49 PM by guard Tova Noel.
CCTV footage shows that the two guards failed to perform the required institutional count at 10 PM and recorded Noel briefly walking by Epstein’s cell at 10:30 PM, the last time the guards entered the tier where his cell was.
Epstein was not checked every 30 minutes. The two guards who were assigned to check his cell overnight, Noel and Michael Thomas, fell asleep at their desk, and two cameras in front of Epstein’s cell also malfunctioned that night. Another camera had footage that was “unusable”.
On October 30, 2019, Baden issued a report stating that Epstein’s neck injuries were much more consistent with “homicidal strangulation” than suicide. He stated that Epstein “had two fractures on the left and right sides of his larynx, specifically the thyroid cartilage or Adam’s apple, as well as one fracture on the left hyoid bone above the Adam’s apple”. In particular, Baden claimed that Epstein’s hyoid bone was broken in a way indicative of strangulation from behind. Baden later said, “Going over a thousand jail hangings, suicides in the New York City state prisons over the past 40-50 years, no one had 3 fractures.
According to Baden the neck wound was in the center of Epstein’s neck, not under his mandibles as in a typical hanging. Baden said this is more common when a victim is strangled by a wire or cord. Baden also said that the wound was much thinner than the strip of bedsheet, and although there was blood on Epstein’s neck, it was absent on the bed-sheet ligature. According to the autopsy files, Epstein also had contusions on both of his wrists, an abrasion on his left forearm, and deep muscle hemorrhaging of his left deltoid or shoulder. His brother, Mark, later suggested that he was “handcuffed and struggled.” Epstein also had hemorrhages in his eyes, which, although not unheard of in hangings, are more common in strangulations. Baden also said that Epstein’s lower legs lacked lividity, suggesting that he did not die in an upright position.
Zorro Ranch Eugenic Project
Jeffrey Epstein had a strong interest in improving the human race through genetic engineering and artificial intelligence, including using his own sperm. It was reported in August 2019 that Epstein had planned to “seed the human race with his DNA” by impregnating up to 20 women at a time using his New Mexico compound as a “baby ranch”, where mothers would give birth to his offspring. He was an advocate of cryonics and his own idiosyncratic version of transhumanism, and had said that he intended to have his penis and head frozen. Epstein’s penis was described as “egg-shaped” by one of his victims.
Epstein hosted renowned scientists, including Stephen Hawking, at fancy dinners and island conferences to further his genetic goals, Epstein used his money and influence to be in the company of prominent scientists including Nobel prize winners.According to the Times, famed physicist Stephen Hawking was among the high-profile scientists who attended at least one of Epstein’s dinners or conferences:
They included the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Murray Gell-Mann, who discovered the quark; the theoretical physicist and best-selling author Stephen Hawking; the paleontologist and evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould; Oliver Sacks, the neurologist and best-selling author; George M. Church, a molecular engineer who has worked to identify genes that could be altered to create superior humans; and the M.I.T. theoretical physicist Frank Wilczek, a Nobel laureate.
Epstein’s promised financial backing of the scientists’ work drove some to turn a blind eye to his “half-baked scientific musings” and “sexual transgressions,” the Times reported.
During a conference in the Virgin Islands, Epstein charted a submarine and gathered the scientists, including Hawking, aboard.
Bill Gates was one of the names listed on Epstein’s flight logs, and had also met a few times. They both have common interests in eugenics and science. According to emails obtained exclusively by The New Yorker, Jeffrey Epstein “directed” Bill Gates to donate $2 million to a research lab in October 2014. MIT Media Lab directors handed over the emails and they clearly connect Gates to Epstein. Suspiciously, Gates has previously denied any business relationship with Epstein. A Gates spokesperson told Business Insider, “Although Epstein pursued Bill Gates aggressively; any account of a business partnership or personal relationship between the two is categorically false.” The two were so cozy that Epstein ultimately listed Bill Gates’ former chief scientific adviser, Boris Nikolic, as an alternative executor to his final will. The biotech entrepreneur was “shocked” when this was revealed just days after Epstein’s alleged prison suicide.
One victim Virginia Giuffre, now 35, filed a Florida legal suit in 2009 against Epstein stating she was a sex slave for him from 1999 to 2002 and he’d made her a “disgusting proposition”. She added: “He offered me a mansion and money every month, a monthly allowance to bear one of his children.
“The proposition was that if anything ever happened between Jeffrey and I, that I would have to sign my child over to him basically and that the child would be his and Ghislaine and I would be looking after it as nothing happened between Jeffrey and I.”
In court documents, Giuffre also alleged that she had sex with Prince Andrew three times and was forced to have sex with former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson. The allegations have been vehemently denied. Former employee Deidre Stratton also claimed Andrew came to visit the ranch and was served a type of tea to make him more “horny”. These claims all date back to the early 2000s, which is also the same time that Prince Andrew started doing business in New Mexico with Mr Richardson as part of his role as the UK’s special trade envoy.
“It’s an underground layer of 1000 square feet (93sq m). Like a nightclub, with stripper poles, it’s not directly underneath the house. Most activity took place there, like dancing, hanging out, it was the entertainment area, no one (staff) was allowed down there, they installed cameras down there,” he says.
