Epstein was educated
Epstein had a lawyer
Epstein knew before he went to jail how long he'd be in. His lawyer would have instructed him: look if we go this path and loose we'll appeal, you'll be out in x number of months or years and you'll owe me, your "lawyer", y dollars.
Epstein had already waited half the time and knew he'd be out.
Would epstein kill himself in prison to save his inheritors legal fees so he could not die at home?
Where is any indication epstein was suicidal before he went in?
WE'RE TALKING A FEW MONTHS. People don't change like that in a few months. Rich cock suckers do NOT usually kill themselves in prison so the assumtion they might is bogus (for example, Michael Miliken, caught stealing millions from investors, was out in <5 years).
Epstein HAD MONEY - AND 1/2 OF IT IS MISSING.
