Registered sex offender and multimillionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein was reportedly visited by a young mystery woman for at least two hours soon after he was put on the suicide watch that was implemented three weeks before his apparent suicide.
“Epstein spent at least two hours locked up alone with a young woman, in a private room reserved for inmates and their attorneys, according to an attorney who was visiting the prison that day,” Forbes reported Thursday.
“The optics were startling. Because she was young. And pretty,” the visiting attorney, who asked to remain anonymous, told Forbes. He later noted, “If I was him, I would have hired an old bald guy.”
The source suggested the woman could have been a lawyer, or a first-year associate. As noted by Forbes, NBC News reported that Epstein “paid members of his team to sit with him in a room for eight hours a day for attorney-client meetings, allowing him to avoid his cell.”
The source pointed out that the young woman was not Reid Weingarten, the disgraced financier’s main lawyer, nor was she any legal counsel known to the media. Additionally, the mystery woman did not have any files with her and was dressed in what the visiting attorney called “Sunday brunch attire.”
“It was slacks and a blouse,” he said, adding, “Could have been jeans or another kind of pants.”
Epstein would reportedly “monopolize” the interview room for long stretches of the day with members of his legal team, likely to avoid the harsh conditions of his cell.
“I think she was there just to babysit [Epstein],” the visiting attorney speculated, “and keep him out of his cell, and just keep him company for eight hours a day. Which is not supposed to be the way it works.”
As noted by The Daily Wire earlier in the week, Epstein’s autopsy results showed that the multimillionaire had multiple broken bones in his neck, which can occur from suicide-by-hanging, but is a more common finding in homicide victims.
“Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple,” The Washington Post reported. “Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said.”
“The revelation about the broken bones that were found in Epstein’s neck followed the revelation on Tuesday night that the two guards who were supposed to be monitoring him fell asleep for three hours and allegedly falsified prison records to cover up their actions,” The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra noted.
Epstein was reportedly found hanging in jail cell at the Manhattan-based Metropolitan Correction Center on Saturday morning and was transferred to an area hospital, where he arrived in cardiac arrest.
According to a CBS News report published on Tuesday, “shouting and shrieking” was heard from inside Epstein’s cell the morning he died.
“CBS News has learned that the morning of Jeffrey Epstein’s death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell. Guards attempted to revive him while saying ‘breathe, Epstein, breathe,'” the report said.
