Even M. Night Shyamalan doesn’t work in as many plot twists as this sketchy story has.
He was on suicide watch, and then pulled off of it. He had a cellmate — who was removed not long before his death. The twice-hourly checks were never made on the day in question. No cameras caught what actually happened. At least one of those guards wasn’t even a Corrections Officer.
Epstein never should have been provided sheets strong enough to support a grown man’s weight.
And if that weren’t enough to get you scratching your head asking… ‘seriously, WTF, people?’, now we know the guards got caught napping and faking their documentation to cover it up.
The two Manhattan jail guards tasked with monitoring Jeffrey Epstein before he died fell asleep on the job and fudged the log entries to show they checked on him and other inmates when they actually didn’t, according to reports.
Surveillance video reviewed after Epstein’s death showed the guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center never made some of the inspections noted in the log, sources told The Post late Tuesday.
A prison and law enforcement official told the New York Times late Tuesday that the guards were asleep when they failed to check on Epstein for about three hours before his death.
Meanwhile, the FBI is sifting through the contents of his island, and they’re coming back with some weird stuff. For example, part of his mansion has been repainted to resemble a prison yard, with an image of himself.
Predictably, his island had the weird sex stuff:
Epstein kept an assortment of peculiar items in his Manhattan mansion, from a life-like human doll dangling from a chandelier to a human-sized chessboard with scantily clad figurines modeled after his employees, according to New York Magazine. Other oddities include individually framed prosthetic eyeballs mounted along a hallway.
He kept prosthetic breasts by a bathtub that he could play with while bathing, Jennifer Araoz, a woman who claims she was abused and raped by Epstein when she was just 15 years old, told NBC News in a recent interview. She said there were also photos of naked women hanging in a massage room.
