Two points for me re: the Epstein mystery

I don't generally blow wind into my own sails, but I'm going to indulge in a bit of it here.

Back on Saturday the 10th, right after Epstein's death was announced, I posted a list of movie tropes that would probably be used if Hollywood decided to go with the story. Here are three of them:

If he was on suicide watch, why was he "found" after the hanging? Did the regular guards call in sick and were they replaced by others?

--- This morning it was announced that the guard at the time was a substitute.

What did he hang himself with? Is there any DNA on it besides his?

--- The opinion at the time was that there was nothing in the cell with which to hang himself. Now it appears that there was a top bunk and he hung himself by tying a noose onto the top bunk and leaning forward. This also gets into the removal of his cellmate, which indicates two beds, not one.

--- And, being such a high-profile inmate, why was he in a two-occupant cell with someone else in the first place, except maybe to give him access to that top bunk once the cellmate was reassigned?

Were there any cameras on him? Were they functioning?

--- Nope. The story is, the cameras looked at the hallway, not into the cells.

This is all going to get more interesting by the day.

1. Yes, the investigation will be a farce

And all sides will disbelieve the results for completely different reasons.

In any case, the investigation will show lapses only at the ground level. No one of any significance will be implicated.

2. Actually, all sides will disbelieve the results for exactly the same reason.

It won't confirm their pet conspiracy theory.

3. He knew too much

And with Barr's help they took him out I think. Did Epstein have ties to putin too? Was trump and other powerful people behind this because they were also compromised by Epstein and putin , and trump? Calls should be made for Barr to resign now. Was his dad compromised by Epstein too, and how he got his job with the school, and Barr knew all about it too? Was Putin buying dirt to use against powerful people too? Many questions to be answered.
