Newly released Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) records that were obtained by the New York Times revealed how child sex trafficker Jeffery Epstein had repeatedly denied suicidality and had been deemed “cooperative,” “future-oriented,” “goal-directed,” and “psychologically stable” by medical staff in the days leading up to his
timely demise alleged suicide.
According to the over 2,000 BOP documents, which included extensive and detailed psychological examination records, Epstein “adamantly” told prison psychologists that he had “no interest in killing himself,” even adding that he “would not do that” to himself anyway because he is a “coward” who is afraid of pain.
Epstein even told one psychologist that he has “lots to do for [his] legal case” and how “being alive is fun,” adding that “it would be crazy” to take his own life because he “has a wonderful life.”
Financier and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein had a 15-minute phone conversation with his girlfriend Karyna Shuliak before committing suicide in his cell, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
Epstein reportedly lied to the prison officials about calling his mother, who had died in 2004, dialing instead his 30-year-old girlfriend Shuliak, three people with knowledge of the phone conversation told the NYT.
During the phone call the convicted sex offender did not in any way reveal an intention to end his life, according to the report.
On May 22, 1949, just before 2:00 a.m., America’s first Defense Secretary James Forrestal plunged to his death from a 16th floor window in the main tower of the Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland.
Forrestal had been admitted to the hospital against his will, diagnosed as suffering from “operational fatigue,” and kept in confinement in a room with security-screened windows for seven weeks while being treated with insulin-induced shock therapy and barbiturates.
One of his visitors was then-Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson, who managed to gain entrance to his suite “against Forrestal’s wishes.”
The New York Times reported Forrestal’s death as a suicide, though the belt, or sash, of his dressing gown was tied tightly around his neck—indicating murder.
The grisly death of mega rock star Kurt Cobain in 1994 (by a shotgun blast to his head) was officially ruled a suicide by the Seattle police, but evidence quickly came to light that Cobain had actually been murdered.
However, despite serious holes in the official narrative about Cobain’s death, the verdict of suicide has held firm for 27 years.
On May 7, the FBI quietly and without fanfare declassified 10 pages of never-before-seen documents relating to Cobain’s death, which alongside a mass of accumulated evidence suggest that the agency had purposely avoided looking into the radical activist musician’s death. One potential explanation for this failure could be due to the CIA’s involvement in the murder.
The latter seems plausible given the connections to the CIA of Courtney Love, Cobain’s former wife, who is the top suspect in the murder. Love happened to be a drug distributor during the same time that the CIA was heavily involved in trafficking opium and using drugs as political weapons. The latter links call for deeper scrutiny.
The widow of John McAfee on Tuesday released what authorities claim was the tech entrepreneur’s suicide note, arguing that the “handwriting is suspect” and doubting its authenticity.
“Here is the alleged suicide note found in John’s pocket,” tweeted Janice McAfee on Tuesday. “This note does not sound anything like someone who has no hope and is contemplating ending their life. This note sounds like one of John’s tweets.”
She added the hashtags, “#NotASuicideNote” and “#JusticeForJohnMcAfee.”
John McAfee’s wife claims that Spanish authorities are engaged in a “cover-up” of the software tycoon’s death by withholding information.
McAfee was found dead in his Barcelona jail cell last month after a Spanish court ruled that he would be extradited to the U.S., where he faced the rest of his life in jail for tax evasion.
Widower Janice McAfee continues to insist that foul play could have been involved, tweeting that authorities are dragging their feet on releasing information.
“There has been no since (sic) of urgency from the various Spanish authorities involved in the investigation into John’s death and there is clearly a cover up happening here concerning the events surrounding his death,” wrote McAfee.
