Within hours, Epstein is claimed dead - by suicide, authorities say, while being on a 24/7 suicide watch during a pretrial detention.
Naturally, given the wealth of the accused and the names mentioned in the press of people who were supposedly frequenting child sex sessions at Epstein's private quarters, not many commentators on social media believe the reports of suicide - or even death - of Epstein.
There are a lot of theories that:
- he was murdered;
- he paid his way out of a criminal case and went to enjoy the rest of his life, under an assumed identity and after a thorough plastic surgery, some place nice and remote from the United States; or
- that he is whisked into Witness Protection Program.
