mega super rich playboy who had an interest in science and sponsored many scientists and was connected to an incredible amount of politicians and wealthy in the US, UK and Australia, had a private island which offered the “services” of underaged girls.
Connecting himself to so many big people means that when he got in big trouble the first time around around 2008, he was able to wiggle out of too much trouble
what was worse is the people who knew or participated in the private island activities during and after the first time he went to jail, as they truly knew better.
But he had big money and sponsored many scientific and political projects. Money is powerful
blackmail is too.
he kept meticulous records of everything.
the records started coming out and people started getting shamed around the world, some who committed crimes with Epstein.
and then while in a jail cell this second time around – seemingly for good as trial dates were upcoming, he died. Ruled a suicide.
and so since then the common opinion is that he did not kill himself.
