Minutes after the death of convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was reported conspiracy theories started to make their way onto the Internet.
It is not a surprise that many have questions as a man on suicide watch should not able to kill himself in a high security prison.
But conspiracies are what they are and there is no evidence at this time to suggest anything other than a suicide is what happened, as Reuters reported.
Jeffrey Epstein, the U.S. financier facing federal sex trafficking charges, committed suicide on Friday night in his lower Manhattan jail cell, several U.S. media outlets reported on Saturday.
Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, had pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14, from at least 2002 to 2005.
The charges were announced more than a decade after Epstein pleaded guilty to state prostitution charges in Florida.
He was confined in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while he appealed a district judge’s refusal to let him live under 24-hour guard in his home on the Upper East Side.
Last month, Epstein was found unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck, media outlets reported, citing unidentified sources.
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the people demanding answers in the death of the high profile pedophile.
We need answers. Lots of them.https://t.co/4DMckiZnVB

Dead men tell no tales. Just as Jeffrey Epstein starts to name names, he decides to kill himself? Mkay. Totally believable. https://t.co/PJFUgFBpao

Things running through my mind…
Wasn’t Jeffrey Epstein on suicide watch?
Did he really commit suicide or was he murdered?
Or is he dead because they “say” so?
Sorry, something is off.

.@realDonaldTrump should immediately direct the DOJ to launch an investigation into the death of Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein was on 24/7 suicide watch. If he did commit suicide, he didn’t do it by himself.#EpsteinSuicide

Suicide? I believe they mean "suicide." #epstein

But this happened in one of the most secure and most important federal lockups in the country. Not some county jail or state prison. https://t.co/RFDFDRP6S4

Why wasn't Jeffrey Epstein being monitored 24/7 in a protected environment, where there was no possibility he could commit suicide? #EpsteinSuicide

So how does a guy on suicide watch in prison commit suicide? #EpsteinSuicide

Jeffrey Epstein died by hanging himself.
While on suicide watch… in a cell with video cameras on him at all times.
This is one of those rare times where conspiracy theories are a lot more plausible and reasonable than taking his dead at face value. #EpsteinSuicide

Often, I make fun of conspiracy theories. Here, if the Jeffrey #EpsteinSuicide really happened in a lockup WHILE HE WAS ON SUICIDE WATCH, it’s 100 percent reasonable to be deeply suspicious of the death. Heads should roll
