The social media, as well as mainstream media, is having a meltdown over the Jeffrey Epstein case. As you know he was the kingpin in the recent scandal in the alleged trafficking of underage girls for sex with high profile individuals. A significant event if high profile figures go down. News Forecasters does not normally, comment on ongoing news events, but this one specifically caught our eyes. Social media is rife with conspiracy theories. Mainstream media, in an effort to be first with their clickbait, is setting forth their own conspiracy theories as well as just inaccurate reporting (Fake News).
The official story as of this posting is that Epstein died in an apparent suicide, though a recent official autopsy has yet to be released – it may tell us nothing. Several of the conspiracy theories state that there were serious irregularities at the jail where Jeffery Epstein died. Overtime issues, the moving of Epstein, unofficial correctional officers and a dubious cell mate – just to name a few. NBC reported there were no irregularities in the Epstein jail cell. However, CBS said shrieking was heard from Epstein cell the day he died. So even the mainstream media is confused.
News Forecasters’ original view was that this was in fact a suicide, or at least an assisted suicide – wink wink. The powers to be needed to scrub this nasty issue under the table. Whether it may be from Epstein’s co-conspirators trying to silence him, or even government itself, not trying to expose high profile people that may destabilize the country, for national security reasons – as ugly as a thought that that might be. But perhaps this needs a second look.
4chan is always riff with conspiracies and hoaxes. I originally dismissed a report from them straight away. But looking at the following ominous message, posted to 4Chan at 8:44 a.m. it does make one wonder. It reads:
Not saying anything after this pls do not try to dox me but last night after 0415 they took him [Epstein] [to] medical in a wheelchair front cuffed but not 1 triage nurse says they spoke to him. Next thing we know trip vans show up? We do not do releases on weekends unless a judge orders it. Next thing we know, he’s put in a single man cell and hangs himself? Here’s the thing, the trip van did NOT sign in and we did not record the plate number and a guy with a green dress military outfit was in the back of the van according to the tower guy that let him through the gate. You guys I am shaking right now but I think they switched him out.
The accused sex trafficker’s death by “suicide” hit the press Saturday morning around 8:53 a.m. If the 4chan post was a hoax, either they manipulated the timestamp or the poster is a very good guesser.
But what got us really thinking was when we saw the media posting pictures of the supposed dead Epstein. The man in the photos cannot be Jeffrey Epstein if you look closely (nose and ears). All of sudden perhaps all the data points listed above may in fact be true – one could conceive of piecing together a story to do just this. This Epstein story will be very hard to sweep under the rug. The fact that so little official information is coming out just adds to the conspiracy.
So, in fact, has the Jeffrey Epstein body been replaced? The greatest escape – he has the money to make it happen. Perhaps Jeffrey Epstein is on a private jet to his “other” really private island. How far down the rabbit hole will we go? If we find that Epstein’s body has quickly been cremated, people will go crazy. This is a very fluid situation – maybe “they” can clean it up. Whatever happens the real tragedy is that mainstream media and government trust, with already low opinions, will sink even further to the bottom of the barrel – all in time for the 2020 U.S. presidential elections.
