Disgraced former British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is currently serving a lengthy sentence in federal prison following her conviction for sex trafficking minors to be abused by her longtime partner in crime, the late disgraced financier and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
During a recent exclusive interview from behind bars, Maxwell expressed a belief about Epstein’s death that is also likely shared by tens of millions of Americans — that he was “murdered” and did not commit suicide in a jail cell, the Western Journal reported.
Ghislaine Maxwell is currently incarcerated in a federal correctional institution in Tallahassee, Florida to serve out the 20-year sentence she received after she was convicted in 2021 of engaging in a conspiratorial sex trafficking operation that provided underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein to exploit and sexually abuse.
Maxwell says Epstein was “murdered”
While in prison, she recently engaged in a series of exclusive interviews by phone and on video with a British journalist and her brother that was aired by British TV host Jeremy Kyle on TalkTV in a one-hour special.
“I believe that he was murdered,” Maxwell said when asked about Epstein’s 2019 death in a Manhattan jail cell that was ruled a suicide by authorities. “I was shocked. And I wondered how it had happened.”
“Because as far as I was concerned, he was going to … I was sure he was going to appeal,” she continued. “And I was sure that he was covered under the non-prosecution agreement.”
Maxwell went on to add, “I honestly wish I’d never met him, you know, looking back now. I probably wish I had stayed in England.”
“Epstein didn’t kill himself”
To be sure, Maxwell is a completely discredited and disbelievable individual, but she is far from alone in harboring suspicions that Epstein didn’t commit suicide and instead was secretly murdered.
In fact, in the immediate aftermath of Epstein allegedly being found hung dead in a Manhattan jail cell shortly after he was arrested and charged with sex crimes in 2019, the incredibly viral and persistent “Epstein didn’t kill himself” meme spread far and wide on social media and beyond.
That is due, at least in part, to an assortment of irregularities in his death, such as the absence of surveillance camera footage, falsified log books for the guards, and marks on his body that were more indicative of homicide by way of strangulation instead of suicide by hanging, among other things.
Furthermore, there was and continues to be a prevailing suspicion among many that at least some of the highly influential and ultra-wealthy global elitists that Epstein previously palled around with — and could have potentially exposed as complicit in his crimes during a public trial — had ample motive and opportunity to permanently silence him to avoid potential embarrassment and legal troubles of their own.
The world will likely never know
To be sure, whether Epstein actually killed himself or was murdered by others is something that the general public will likely never know with any real certainty.
As for Maxwell, she currently has enough problems of her own in dealing with prison life and her pending appeal to spend too much time worrying about the specifics of her deceased former pedophile partner.
