Did Jeffrey Epstein kill himself?
On the morning of August 10, 2019, Jeffrey Epstein, jet-setting consigliere and friend to the rich and powerful, was found unresponsive in his prison cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan where he awaited his second trial for sexual predation and other crimes. He was rushed to a local hospital and one hour later pronounced dead. The coroner’s verdict? Suicide. But cracks in the official story emerged immediately. And the questions kept coming:
● Why did the surveillance cameras in front of his cell mysteriously stop working that night?
● Why was Epstein's cellmate transferred out and never replaced?
● Why was a high-profile prisoner so suddenly taken off suicide watch and left unguarded for eight hours?
● How did Epstein get a bedsheet for hanging himself, when his having one was against jail protocol?
Finally, was he murdered to protect the powerful people who feared what he might reveal?
Many were happy to learn that Epstein would not have his day in open court. Across the world, a sinister web of powerful billionaires, celebrities and political players, including Bill and Hillary Clinton, had reason to sigh with relief at news of Epstein’s death. Having flown on his private planes and visited his many homes—the sites of so many illicit activities—they had much to lose if their transgressions were ever exposed. And now, Epstein was silenced for good.
In A Convenient Death, investigative reporters Alana Goodman and Daniel Halper search for the truth behind the scandal that shocked the nation. With unprecedented access to Epstein's victims and lawyers, to medical professionals, Wall Street insiders and law enforcement officers, they reveal the dirty secrets and sinister ties that may have driven someone in Epstein’s circle to take matters into their own hands.
