Two cameras located outside convicted pedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s jail cell “malfunctioned,” and have been sent to an FBI crime lab for examination, according to Reuters.

“The cameras were sent to Quantico, Virginia, site of a major FBI crime lab where agents and forensic scientists analyze evidence,” Reuters reported. “The Washington Post reported on Monday that at least one camera in the hallway outside Epstein’s cell had footage that was unusable. The newspaper said there was other usable footage captured in the area.”

“Epstein’s lawyers Reid Weingarten and Martin Weinberg told U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan on Tuesday they had doubts about the New York City chief medical examiner’s conclusion that their client killed himself.” Reuters added.

Epstein, who is about 6 feet tall, ostensibly killed himself by kneeling to the floor and strangling himself with a makeshift noose. A few days after his apparent suicide, it was revealed that Epstein had certain broken bones in his neck that are usually a result of homicide, not suicide.

According to The Daily Wire, there were many odd events surrounding Epstein’s apparent suicide, including “Epstein being taken off of suicide watch days after he was believed to have attempted suicide, his cellmate being transferred out of the cell hours before he allegedly killed himself, and the prison guards falling asleep for hours while he killed himself and then subsequently lying about it on official records.”
