I just finished watching an episode of Columbo in which the plot was less implausible than the entire Jeffrey Epstein saga.
After Epstein, somehow wound up being found hanging in his cell, which was supposed to be impossible, now Jean-Luc Brunel, one of his associates, to be found hanging in his prison cell.
A modeling agent and close associate of the late financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell in Paris, French prosecutors said Saturday.
Police said Jean-Luc Brunel was found hanged in his cell Friday night at La Santé Prison in the heart of Paris. He had been in police custody for over a year as French prosecutors investigated him on suspicion of raping minors over the age of 15 and sexual harassment. He was also considered a witness in an investigation into child sex trafficking.
The prosecutor’s office said Saturday that an investigation was under way to determine the cause of Mr. Brunel’s death.
Suicide, I’m sure.
Mr. Brunel, who by varying accounts was either 75 or 76 years old, was apparently able to defeat the safeguards of the prison system and hang himself without anyone being the wiser.
Nor did Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide alert anyone to anything.
It is not clear whether Brunel was sharing a cell with other inmates or if there was CCTV footage inside.
An investigation has been launched into the cause of his death.
“A night patrol found his lifeless body at about 1am,” said an investigating source.
“A judicial enquiry has been launched, and early evidence points to suicide.”
Jeffrey Epstein was found hanged at 1 AM.
Funny how the M.O. for both suicides are surprisingly similar. I’m sure we’ll find malfunctioning cameras and guards who were oddly derelict and knew nothing.
