US Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning told podcast host Ethan Klein that Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide in a Manhattan jail cell was likely a “prison murder” that correctional officers allowed to happen.
Arrested in 2019 and charged with sex trafficking of minors, Epstein was found hanging in his cell in Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center a month later. His death was ruled a suicide. However, video cameras covering Epstein’s cell malfunctioned and two guards falsified records stating that they had monitored the sex offender on the night of his death, generating public skepticism about the ‘suicide’ story.
Epstein’s death was “murder,” Manning said on an episode of Klein’s H3 Podcast on Friday. “That’s how a prison murder happens. I know when it happens.”
“You wanna get rid of someone in prison? That’s how you do it,” she added, referring to the apparent switching off of the security cameras covering Epstein’s cell.
