(TMU) — An attorney for three of Jeffrey Epstein’s reported victims appears to not believe that the accused sex trafficker attempted suicide when he was recently found injured and nearly unconscious in his jail cell.
Speaking with the Sun, Spencer Kuvin also suggested that the billionaire may have a hit out on his life.
Kuvin told the British tabloid:
“I question whether or not it was a true suicide attempt that Mr Epstein was involved in in jail or whether or not there may be some powerful people who just don’t want him to talk.
“If he goes on trial, everyone he’s been in contact with will ultimately be fair game.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that no jail will protect you when there’s powerful people that want to reach you—wherever you are.
“If he’s going to implicate anyone in power that has the ability to reach in and somehow get to him—his life is definitely in jeopardy.
“I do question whether it was a true suicide attempt. I mean how do you choke yourself? It doesn’t make any sense.
“There are reports someone came after him but that could just be because he’s a paedophile. Those types of individuals don’t last long in prison.
“If Epstein is in general population or anywhere available to the general population I believe his life is in jeopardy.
“They will have to seal him down in the jail. But even there there [sic] are still people who can get to him, ultimately.”
Kuvin also pointed out that the Eyes Wide Shut-style orgies attended by the rich and powerful in masks have been taking place for decades.
“These sex parties and orgies and odd things dating back even to the 1950s and 60s—seem to be repeating themselves on a grand scale. The rich and powerful think they are beyond the law and they end up doing things that are beyond the law,” the attorney stated.
Officials are still investigating whether Epstein’s injuries were from a failed suicide attempt or if the 66-year-old was assaulted.
