And the conspiracy theories begin…….

August 2019

In the wake of the suicide (or “suicide”) of disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, the conspiracy theories are already flying around the internet.

I’m a fan of a good conspiracy theory too, but for me to buy into it, it has to be plausible; which also means supported by some facts that make it logical.

Sure, it’s possible that Elvis faked his own death and is still alive (spoiler alert: He’s dead. Get over it!), because we all know that being a well-known celebrity can have serious downsides.

However, there’s no evidence or logical reason to believe that he’s alive and living on a spaceship floating above earth.

It’s plausible that rogue elements of the American government conspired against and killed John F. Kennedy and kept it secret all these years later. The Second World War ended 74 years ago, yet were still learning about clandestine activities that were previously kept secret because participants signed the Official Secrets Act (the British version and for some, the Canadian version too). Some stories will never be told because the participants took their secrets to the grave, even after their obligations under the Official Secrets Act expired. They took their oath that seriously.

Some people are theorizing that Epstein was murdered or strongly “encouraged” to kill himself. I don’t believe he was murdered, but it’s plausible that he told by very powerful people to make a “graceful exit” to ensure that any information that he was privy to that hadn’t already come out would go to the grave with him.

The coming weeks and months, and maybe even years, will reveal if there is any information that Epstein might have revealed that hasn’t already been discovered by investigators. Others with information may now come forward, encouraged by the fact that at least Epstein can’t come after them now. Some notable people have already been named and there are a lot more who are no doubt consulting with their lawyers right now.

Although, unless the same “powerful people” who leaned on Epstein encourage all others to develop amnesia, lest they have the same terrible “accident” that befell Epstein.

In the absence of any other evidence, what I think is a more likely reason for Epstein’s suicide is this: He was a very rich and powerful man who lived a very luxurious life, hanging around with other very rich and powerful people; one who was alleged to have been involved in child sex-trafficking and running a “pedophilia island,” where he and his other powerful friends had sex with countless young women and girls.

Now at the age of 66, he was facing the possibility of a sentence that would virtually ensure he would die in prison, far from the privileged life he knew. Maybe spending any time in prison was just too much for this privileged man to take.

We may never know what actually happened, but maybe it was he rich and powerful people who made up his “client list” who “encouraged” Epstein to make a “graceful exit.”

Maybe the subsequent investigation will reveal that Epstein was taken off his suicide watch because he told the jail staff that he wouldn’t try to kill himself again. Someone who truly wants to kill themselves will do it, no matter what precautions are taken. Sometimes they even lie about being suicidal.

Maybe someday, we will know the truth of Epstein’s death, but I’m not hopeful.
