Rumors and conspiracy theories have been swirling around the mysterious Jeffrey Epstein suicide. Details from the autopsy report were released today, but perhaps even more interesting than the physical evidence surrounding his death is the emotional state he was in.

The New York Post reported that “Jeffrey Epstein was confident he could fight the child sex trafficking charges against him and was in ‘great spirits’ just hours before his jailhouse death” and even said casually to one of his lawyers, “I’ll see you Sunday.”

In an even more bizarre turn of events, previous reports were suggesting Epstein had neck injuries from an attempted suicide just a few weeks earlier which led him to be put on suicide watch. The kicker? Epstein “told his lawyers that the neck injuries he suffered in an earlier incident at the Metropolitan Correctional Center were inflicted by his hulking, ex-cop cellmate, which led the lawyers to request that he be taken off a suicide watch, according to a source familiar with Epstein’s case.”

Does this mean that Epstein never tried to commit suicide, meaning there is an alternative scenario at play? The Post also suggested “Epstein’s optimism behind bars” were expressed in the long 12-hour visits with his lawyers. A source described him as “delusional” expecting he would get an easy plea deal just as he had in his past.
