"Jeffrey Epstein was found hanging in his lower Manhattan jail cell with a bedsheet wrapped around his neck and secured to the top of a bunk bed," the New York Postreported.
"The convicted pedophile, who was 6 feet tall, apparently killed himself by kneeling toward the floor and strangling himself with the makeshift noose, law enforcement sources said Monday."
However, this version of events is contradicted by the assertions of a former inmate at the same jail whose claims were also published by the New York Post.
"You have sheets, but they're paper level, not strong enough. He was 200 pounds — it would never happen,"said the former inmate.
The source also said that suicide was an "impossibility" and couldn't have been accomplished via a bed.
"Could he have done it from the bed? No sir. There's a steel frame, but you can't move it. There's no light fixture. There's no bars," he said.
