Epstein's Own Lawyers Revolt, Move to Challenge Autopsy Conclusion

Path 27

Lawyers for late financier Jeffrey Epstein are not happy with the autopsy conclusion of the New York City medical examiner’s office and have issued a challenge demanding answers and accountability.

The chief medical examiner concluded that Epstein hung himself in his own jail cell, ending his life.

Several question marks still hover over the controversial millionaire’s death, however.

Sleeping guards falsified records after failing to check on Epstein before his death, and several broken bones were found in his neck that could be indicative of homicide by strangulation.

The mystery surrounding his death and his treatment at the Metropolitan Correctional Center have sparked his lawyers to apparently begin digging for answers on their own.

“We are not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner,” Epstein’s attorneys said in a Friday statement.

The medical examiner is not the only one in the hot seat, either. Epstein’s lawyers made it clear that MCC would not be getting off the hook without an attempt at a full accounting of the events surrounding the financier’s death.

Do you think we will ever find out the truth behind Epstein's death?

Slamming the “medieval” conditions at MCC, the lawyers made it clear they weren’t done fighting.

“His safety was the responsibility of MCC,” the statement read. “It is indisputable that authorities violated their own protocols.

“The defense team fully intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of Mr. Epstein’s death including if necessary legal action to view the pivotal videos — if they exist as they should — of the area proximate to Mr. Epstein’s cell during the time period leading to his death.”

Reid Weingarten, Epstein’s lead attorney, signed the letter along with two others.

MCC and the New York City medical examiner’s office would be making a grave mistake by underestimating him. As NPR reported, Weingarten is no stranger to ruthlessly ferreting out the truth.

Weingarten’s track record speaks for itself. In the 1970s and 1980s, he helped bust lawmakers as part of an FBI corruption sting.

Seven lawmakers were slapped with criminal convictions as a result of the operation.

Weingarten has also directly dealt with every president since Jimmy Carter, including President Donald Trump, and says he is “very proud” of his work with them, regardless of political party.

With Weingarten and other expert lawyers now on the hunt, it looks like we’ll finally start to see some answers about the apparent incompetence and perhaps even corruption of the government agencies charged with Epstein’s safekeeping while he awaited trial.
