“Almost 40 minutes before ABC News first reported Epstein’s death on Twitter, someone posted still-unverified details on 4chan, the anonymous message board popular with far-right trolls and white nationalists.
“[D]ont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this,” read the post, which was published at 8:16 a.m. alongside an image of Pepe, the green frog that has become a mascot for right-wing internet trolls.”
So either Epstein’s dead and a prison guard or someone else within the system wanted to share what s/he knew, which seems perfectly possible, or someone wants us to believe Epstein’s dead when he’s not, which I’d also believe.
I don’t see that this “tip” tells us much, unfortunately.
Destruction is easy; creation is hard, but more interesting.
