How Convenient! Epstein's Cell Mate Was Transferred From Cell Hours Before Death

The day prior to Jeffrey Epstein's mysterious death, the pedophile's cellmate was conveniently transferred to a different cell.
On Saturday morning, Epstein was found dead in his prison cell. Authorities quickly alleged that the 66 year old investor had killed himself.
The bombshell report that Epstein's cellmate was moved just hours before his death, fuels many conspiracy theories relating to the cause of Epstein's death.
Check out what the Washington Post reported:
Officers should have been checking on Epstein, who was being held in a special housing unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City, every 30 minutes, and, under normal circumstances, he also should have had a cellmate, according to the person familiar with the matter and union officials representing facility employees.
But a person who had been assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday, and — for reasons that investigators are still exploring — he did not receive a new cellmate, the person familiar with the matter said Sunday night. That left Epstein, who had previously been placed on suicide watch, alone and unmonitored — at least in the hours before his death — by even those officers assigned to guard him. [emphasis added]
The whole situation regarding Epstein get's even more bizarre considering his death was most likely NOT caught on surveillance footage.
According to TMZ and the New York Post, cameras in the Metropolitan Correctional Center most likely did not capture Epstein's death. The two news outlets noted that the cameras just so happen to point outside of the cells and not inside of them.
These reports are appalling considering Epstein is an extremely high profile prisoner who was on suicide watch during the weeks following up to his death.
Check out what TMZ reported:
Sources familiar with the correctional facility in question tell TMZ, there are cameras in the Special Housing Unit — the SHU — but SOP is that cameras do not point into the cells. We’re told cameras capture, among other things, the doors to each cell to determine if anyone walks in or out, but they don’t point inside.
One source familiar with the facility says the drill is for guards to pass by each cell in intervals ranging from 15 to 30 minutes depending on the circumstances.
Unless there’s a one-off cell with a camera pointing inside — and we’re told there have been rare situations where this is the case — the time and manner of his death may never be captured.
Not everyone is convinced that Epstein died by suicide. In a statement, Attorney General Bill Barr said he was "appalled" when he heard about Epstein's death considering the pedophile was on suicide watch for a suicide attempt which took place in July.
"Mr. Epstein's death raises serious questions that must be answered," Barr said. "In addition to the FBI's investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein's death."
