2. Okay, I'll admit it.

I think Epstein committed suicide.

And my opinion is based on the nonstop flurry of legal activity he engaged in the weeks prior, and that he redrafted and deliberately restructured his will to shield his fortune from his victims ever recovering any of it, and signed it two days before he committed suicide... or whatever happened to him.

Witness and anecdotal reports are that he was in a much better mood those last days than he had been prior to that, when he was said to be a broken, inconsolable mess. That last week or so he seemed in better spirits, talkative with his lawyers etc... (i.e., his plan was in place). It is not uncommon for people who decide to end their lives to have a burst of euphoria in the days prior to suicide. It's a strange thing, but it's like a weight has been lifted off of them, because they know what they will do, they have a plan, and they are happy with their decision. From their point of view, their misery is about to come to an end.

And also, I reflect on the kind of life he lived and how he was looking at spending the rest of his life in prison, and how humiliating his trial would have been.

Narcissists do commit suicide sometimes, especially if it is a way to screw over their "enemies." It is usually an act of anger, and a way of "having the last laugh."
