Former prisoner Bill Mersey, who spent hours with Jeffrey Epstein, says he died of suicide in his prison cell despite murder conspiracy theories
The former “companion” of Jeffrey Epstein’s former suicide watch says he believes the pedophile financier has committed suicide and has not been murdered, despite swirling conspiracies.
Epstein was arrested on July 6, 2019, and charged with sexually assaulting dozens of young girls and pimping his wealthy and powerful friends from his Manhattan mansion and waterfront mansion in Florida.
He died on August 10 while awaiting trial in his prison cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York at the age of 66. Sheets were found around his neck and his death was ruled by suicide.
Despite conspiracies surrounding his death, Bill Mersey, who spent hours in Epstein’s cell, is adamant that the disgraced financier committed his own life.
“I’m 99 percent sure. There was a man I knew who worked with me in the kitchen … He had the cell next to Epstein and he remembered torn sheets in the middle of the night. And no one came in to investigate that, ”Mersey said Fox news.
“Look, he didn’t seem depressed, but it was all over. And I think he knew that, ”he added.
“He didn’t seem depressed, but it was all over. And I think he knew that, ”said Bill Mersey, who spent a year at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City, where he met Epstein.

Mersey has weighed in on Epstein’s controversial death in the new Investigation Discovery (ID) focus series titled Who killed Jeffrey Epstein? which premiered this week.
Mersey reveals that he thought he was “just a boy.”
“He didn’t come across as a criminal, a pedophile,” he said.
“He reminded me of all the people I grew up with. I grew up on Long Island in a very Jewish school district. He was one of the boys I went to high school with. He wasn’t great. He was a civilized man, except of course he likes 15-year-old girls. But he didn’t think I was particularly intellectual. He just didn’t seem all that intelligent, ”Mersey said.
Mersey himself served a year at MCC for tax fraud and signed up for the accompanying program that monitors prisoners who need special protection or who commit suicide at 40 cents an hour where he met the infamous Epstein.
Epstein was put on suicide watch a month before his death.
Mersey says Epstein did not seem depressed, but seemed very concerned about his future in prison. He reportedly spent eight to twelve hours a day with his lawyers
He said Epstein did not seem depressed, but seemed very concerned about his future. He reportedly spent eight to twelve hours a day with his lawyers.
“I remember him drifting away in the middle of conversations,” Mersey recalled.
“I just saw that he was thinking, ‘Oh my god, will I ever get out of here? “But I think he kept hoping the lawyers would find a deal. That he would get out. But at some point you just knew he wouldn’t get out… We had a lot of discussions about how he would handle things because he was really scared of the prison population, ”he added.
Mersey said the only time he noticed anything strange about the millionaire financier was when he saw spots around his neck.

“I said,” So Jeffrey, what the hell happened? “He said, ‘I got up to drink some water and that’s the last thing I remember,'” Mersey recalled.
“I thought to myself, ‘Get the f ** k out of here. “But I didn’t say that to him. I gave him some slack, but I knew he was bullshit, ”he added.
Mersey said Epstein would reportedly testify against people associated with him in the high-profile case.
“I don’t think he would ever get out. He should rattle Prince Andrew or anyone else, ”Mersey told Fox.
‘[During our last conversation], I told him all the usual clichés, like, “Keep your chin up, remember everything I told you, man up.” But I just didn’t think he would ever get out. He really wanted to live a more comfortable life. ‘
