BREAKING: Video Footage Outside Epstein’s Cell On The Night Of His FIRST Suicide Attempt Has Been Permanently Deleted

What else can go wrong in this case?

The FBI made the discovery last week when they were attempting to review the video footage of the night in question, but federal prosecutors have just made the information public.

Jeffrey Epstein had attempted to kill himself in July and was put on suicide watch. After that alleged suicide attempt, it was revealed that Epstein “feared” his cellmate, Nicholas Tartaglione, an absolutely ripped dirty cop who was facing the death penalty for trafficking drugs and killing four men and burying them in his yard. Tartaglione was cleared of having anything to do with Epstein’s attempted suicide but was later removed from the cell.

Epstein, who was facing federal sex trafficking charges, was found unconscious in his cell in the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in New York around 1:27 am on July 23.

It seems that the MCC kept surveillance footage of the wrong tier of the jail and has permanently deleted the other recordings due to a “clerical error.” In a court filing, prosecutors said, “The MCC computer system listed a different, incorrect cell for Tartaglione.”

The MCC “inadvertently preserved video from the wrong tier within the MCC and as a result, video from outside the defendant’s cell on July 22-23, 2019 no longer exists,” the court papers say.

The FBI made the discovery last week while reviewing a copy of the video provided by MCC officials, prosecutors said.

“After reviewing the video, it appeared to the government that the footage contained on the preserved video was for the correct date and time, but captured a different tier than the one where (the cell housing Epstein and his cellmate] was located because the preserved video did not show corrections officers responding to any of the cells seen on the video.”

There was a backup available but it wasn’t available due to “technical errors.”

A backup video system was in place, but the requested video wasn’t available due to unspecified “technical errors,” the court filing says.

NBC News reported last August that Tartaglione was cleared of any wrongdoing in the July incident.

Epstein, 66, died by suicide inside his cell three weeks later.

MCC officials succeeded in preserving video footage from outside his cell that day. Prosecutors are using the footage as evidence against two guards accused of falsifying records and not preforming the proper checks on Epstein the night he died.

It’s no wonder people think it’s a conspiracy… everything that could go wrong to thwart a proper investigation has gone wrong.
