Mark Epstein, brother of the deceased, convicted offender Jeffrey Epstein, expressed his concerns to a newspaper on Thursday about the circumstances surrounding his brother’s death and suggested that Jeffrey Epstein wouldn’t have taken his own life.
The billionaire financier’s brother went a step further, according to Daily Caller, saying he ““insists the pathologist erred in concluding that his brother hanged himself in August at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center.”
“I could see if he got a life sentence, I could then see him taking himself out, but he had a bail hearing coming up,” he added before claiming that his brother’s death was suspicious enough to not be simply a matter of coincidence.
Doubling down on defending his brother’s alleged actions, Mark Epstein stated that his brother was ultimately innocent.
“Do I think that it was inappropriate for him, at age 50 or 60 to be with women who were 18 or 20? Yes, but it certainly wasn’t illegal and it wasn’t sex trafficking.”
He then hinted at potentially foul play, saying his brother knew things about a lot of people.

Epstein’s life came to an end at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in New York City in August, and the New York City medical examiner officially ruled his death as a suicide after an autopsy was performed. Independent medical experts have since disputed that claim, saying that the injuries Jeffrey Epstein sustained were not in line with suicide-by-hanging injuries, but more in line with homicidal injuries.
ABC News host Amy Robach made headlines earlier this month after footage was leaked in which she expressly stated that Jeffrey Epstein was murdered.
“So do I think he was killed? A hundred percent, yes I do,” she said in the video. “Because do you want it? He made his whole living blackmailing people. Yep,” Roblach said.
