Questions about the circumstances of Jeffrey Epstein’s death behind bars have been rekindled in new book
Questions about the circumstances of Jeffrey Epstein’s death behind bars have been rekindled in a new book, including whether the pedophile’s cellmate — a convicted quadruple murderer — could have played a role.
In her book Perversion of Justice: The Jeffrey Epstein Story, journalist Julie K. Brown delves deep into her years of investigation into Epstein’s underage sex trafficking operation and discusses theories surrounding his death.
Epstein, a convicted sex offender, was found hanged in his secure federal prison cell in New York on August 10, 2019.
His death has been ruled a suicide, but it has been the subject of rampant speculation from theorists who believe his high-profile connections made him an obvious target for murder.
In an excerpt from her book, Brown paints several stories as to whether Epstein’s cellmate, former police officer Nicholas Tartaglione, may have tried to kill him or facilitated his suicide.
Tartaglione, who received the death penalty on federal murder and drug charges, reportedly refused to cooperate with authorities after Epstein’s death.

Epstein, a convicted sex offender, was found hanged in his secure federal prison cell in New York on August 10, 2019. Although the New York chief medical officer deemed Epstein’s death a “suicide,” the circumstances surrounding the incident continue to harass conspiracy theorists.
According to Brown’s book, there are a series of “suspicious events” surrounding Epstein’s death, including surveillance videos of the disappearance of the incident and Tartaglione allegedly accessing an unapproved cell phone.
Prison officials said it was destroyed by accident. Tartaglione had an illegal cell phone, but the government did not release its contents. To this day, authorities have never released a report on their investigation into the event,” Brown said in the book.
Brown also questions the prison’s decision to co-host a sex offender and quadruple homicide.
“For reasons that remain unexplained to this day, the Metropolitan Correctional Center had handcuffed a colossal quadruple murderer with a sixty-six-year-old nerd with an egg-shaped penis who happened to be the nation’s most famous child molester,” she says. wrote.
Tartaglione’s lawyer has previously stated that the ex-cop was friends with Epstein and played no part in his death.

The attorney has also theorized that Tartgalione was created in response to complaints he filed about alleged inhumane conditions at the facility.
Although New York’s chief medical officer deemed Epstein’s death a “suicide,” the circumstances surrounding the incident continue to haunt conspiracy theorists.
In 2019, sources familiar with the coroner’s report told the Washington Post that Epstein had suffered a broken hyoid bone, a type of fracture that involves both suicidal hanging and homicidal strangulation.
However, experts say a broken hyoid bone is more often linked to homicides than suicides.
“If, hypothetically, the hyoid bone is broken, that would generally raise questions about strangulation, but it’s not definitive and doesn’t rule out suicidal hanging,” Jonathan Arden, the president of the National Association of Medical Examiners, told the paper. .
Other theorists, including former President Donald Trump and several FOX Business hosts, argued that former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are linked to Epstein’s death.
This theory stems from decades-old theories linking the family to dozens of suspicious deaths, Insider reported.
While conspirators claim they have “incriminating evidence about the family,” the claims at this point remain unfounded. In addition, Bill Clinton’s spokesman has publicly said the accusation is “ridiculous” and “untrue.”

Other theorists have tried to link Trump, who has been accused by numerous women of sexual misconduct, with Epstein’s death.
One of Trump’s accusers claimed he assaulted her at one of Epstein’s parties, leading several conspirators to believe that Epstein may have “dirt” on the former president.
In addition to evaluating Epstein’s death, Brown’s book is also expected to highlight the evidence that brought him to justice and expose the “powerful people and the broken system that protected him.”
Brown wrote and published a series of stories surrounding the Epstein case in November 2018, which revealed how as many as 80 of Epstein’s victims were pressured to keep quiet about crimes that took place when they were just 13 and 14 years old.
Her award-winning series also claimed that Epstein was treated leniently by prosecutors who agreed to drop tougher federal sex trafficking charges, allowing the wealthy financier to plead guilty to state-level prostitution crimes.
‘Perversion of Justice: The Jeffrey Epstein Story’ comes out Tuesday.
