No one could have predicted this!
At least one camera in the hallway outside the cell where authorities say registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein killed himself earlier this month had footage that is unusable, although other, clearer footage was captured in the area, according to three people briefed on the evidence gathered earlier this month.
Sorry folks, there’s no footage of his cell or the hallway outside but maybe we can get some footage of an empty walkway somewhere “in the area.”
It was not immediately clear why some video footage outside Epstein’s cell is too flawed for investigators to use or what is visible in the other, usable footage. The incident is being investigated by the FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which are attempting to determine what happened and how to assess whether any policies were violated or crimes committed.
We know it was just a “coincidence” and there was no conspiracy at work!
The footage is considered critical to those inquiries, and the revelation of an unusable recording is yet another of the apparent failures inside the Metropolitan Correctional Center, the short-staffed Bureau of Prisons facility in downtown Manhattan that held Epstein.
If only they had more funding to hire more staff to watch over the most high profile detainee in the entire world!
If you think about it, this was really the general public’s fault because they didn’t want to pay more in taxes!
It’s unclear whether the flaw in the taping affected a limited duration of the footage or whether it was a chronic problem in the beleaguered facility.
Those darned camera malfunctions!
I’ve been shooting my own videos for 15 years straight.
Thousands and thousands of shows.
Never had a camera malfunction.

If only the camera had worked we’d have crystal clear footage to confirm there was no activity around his cell before his alleged death, but alas!
A Bureau of Prisons spokesman declined to comment, as did spokespeople for the FBI, the Justice Department and the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan.
The people who spoke about the footage requested anonymity, citing the ongoing probe.
Remember folks, if you don’t think it’s just a coincidence that there was reportedly no footage of Epstein’s alleged death, no witnesses and both jail guards (one of which wasn’t even a corrections officer) who were supposed to watch over him fell asleep then you’re a conspiracy theorist and a terrorist!
