[Ed. – For those who would write this off as a conspiracy theory — and it very well might be — should explain how the hashtag #TrumpBodyCount, which is also trending, but not nearly as much, isn’t.]
Jeffrey Epstein‘s apparent suicide has raised suspicions and sent social media hashtags trending as many questioned how prison personnel failed to prevent his death.
The billionaire financier was found dead Saturday after reportedly hanging himself at a Manhattan jail where the convicted sex offender was supposedly under a suicide watch. Epstein was hospitalized a few short weeks before for what appeared to be a suicide attempt that failed.
But his death on Saturday while awaiting trial for federal sex trafficking charges, and one day after the release of documents implicating several prominent political names – including Bill Clinton – instantly set off conspiracy theories. And top Twitter trends included the words “So Epstein,” as well as “Another Clinton” and the hashtag #ClintonBodyCount.
Verified Twitter users questioned how it was possible for Epstein to take his own life while prison personnel supposedly had him on suicide watch.
