Jeffrey Epstein's brother raises new questions about billionaire's jailhouse death

February 11, 2024

Though several years have passed since billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in a Manhattan jail cell, the mysterious circumstances surrounding his demise remain a topic of curiosity, with brother Mark Epstein recently raising new questions about what occurred and bringing photographic evidence to light, as the Daily Wire reports.

Mark Epstein's latest insights on the situation were revealed during a Friday appearance on journalist Megyn Kelly's SiriusXM show, and they suggest to many that many unanswered questions about the disgraced financier's death remain.

Acceptance turns to doubt

Back in August 2019, Dr. Barbara Sampson, then serving as New York City's chief medical examiner, officially declared that Jeffrey Epstein died of suicide by hanging.

The controversial figure, who was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges, was said to have killed himself by using a bedsheet left in his cell to fashion a noose.

While a private forensic pathologist took issue with some of Sampson's findings and suggested that she should not have ruled out homicide as a potential cause of death, she has since remained firm in her initial assessment.

Despite his early reluctance to question Sampson's judgment, Mark Epstein's subsequent meetings with medical examiners who said his brother's death “looked too much like a homicide” spurred doubts about the official narrative.

“So, then the questions became if he didn't commit suicide, then he was killed, and then who killed him? How was it done?” Mark Epstein asked.

Photographs raise questions

In support of his growing doubts about the official explanation for his brother's death, Mark Epstein presented Kelly with autopsy photos, including images of Jeffrey Epstein's neck.

The photographs appeared to show a strangulation injury that could have resulted from a wire or thin piece of rope.

After seeing the images, Kelly seemed to share Mark Epstein's skepticism, saying, “I have a hard time, as a layperson, understanding how a sheet made that mark.”

“It's almost like garrote was used or some sort of rope wire,” she further observed.

Seeking further review

Back in January, Mark Epstein appeared on NewsNation's On Balance with Leland Vittert and indicated his desire for a new investigation into his brother's death, as The Hill noted at the time.

Remarking on the initial probe, Epstein said, “It doesn't seem to have been much of an investigation at all. That's the real question. Because things like the EMT and the medical personnel at the hospital, none of them have ever been questioned.”

Asked by Vittert whether he believed the official story that a series of staff failures created the conditions under which Jeffrey Epstein was able to kill himself, Mark Epstein said, “No I don't. Yes, there were screw-ups but that doesn't mean that my brother...committed suicide...,” and he appears to believe that the “dirt” his sibling had on high-powered figures may well have played a role in his eventual fate.
