John Gotti Jeffrey Epstein Suicide Scandal
A former close associate of the late mobster John Gotti Sr. has said that if Jeffrey Epstein killed himself inside his cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, he would have had to ‘pay dearly’ for help.
Epstein, the sixty six-year-old convicted sex culprit who was discovered in cardiac arrest and later died on Saturday is stated to have hanged himself while behind bars at the the big apple town facility.
‘If he killed himself someone had to have helped him,’ Lewis Kasman, who visited Gotti at the facility numerous times in 1992, advised the ny submit.
Kasman stated for the proper fee, inmates may want to get in reality something they desired from corrupt guards standing watch over the organization.
In an in advance assertion, the facility advised DailyMail.Com that the FBI is now launching an investigation into Epstein’s demise.
Kasman said he has kept up to date with the conditions at the facility since he used to visit Gotti there in the early 1990s.
‘There are cameras going 24/7 and they’re watching 24/7. Someone had to give [Epstein] the equipment to kill himself and he had to pay for it dearly,’ Kasman said.
He noted that while Gotti was locked up in both the 9 South and 10 South units, which are supposed to be the most secure on site, Gotti had no problem having his favorite steak dinner hand-delivered.
‘He had Peter Luger’s whenever he wanted,’ Kasman said.
‘That facility for years had issues of corruption, with correction officers bringing in food or cellphones for wealthy people.’
Epstein, a billionaire hedge funder and admitted sex offender, was known for his high-profile connections including former President Bill Clinton, President Donald Trump, and Prince Andrew.
But while Kasman said inmates with the right connections and enough cash could sneak things in to MCC New York, he also said the living conditions there are ‘totally disgusting’ and ‘worse than Guantanamo Bay.’
‘There are roaches crawling all over you — in every orifice — when you sleep. The Bureau of Prisons’ answer to that is that they can’t spray. It’s toxic,’ Kasman said.
