A New York mafia informant who was close to the late mob boss John Gotti — and who often visited Gotti at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center — revealed inside information about the facility Jeffrey Epstein, the multimillionaire convicted pedophile, was held.
This information was published Sunday by The New York Post. In the original publication of the piece, references to United States Attorney General William Barr were made and alleged that he could have possibly visited Epstein while he was in the facility. However, in the time since publishing, The New York Post updated their article, removing all information related to Barr and adding the message, “This story has been updated to remove references to a purported visit to the MCC by Attorney General William Barr because the source of the information did not have direct knowledge that the visit took place.”
Former Donald Trump friend Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell after what authorities called a failed suicide attempt. Epstein died Saturday as the result of a successful suicide attempt, authorities say, via The Inquisitr.
As The Inquisitr reported, Epstein reportedly told guards, as well as fellow inmates at the MCC, that someone tried to kill him.
According to a report published Saturday by The Washington Post, “people close to Epstein” also believe that the his death was the result of “foul play.”
The former mobster also claimed that, “If [Epstein] killed himself someone had to have helped him.”
As The Inquisitr reported, one source has alleged that guards assigned to Epstein left him alone for long periods at a time, neglecting to check on him every 30 minutes as regulations at the jail require.
“There are cameras going 24/7 and they’re watching 24/7. Someone had to give [Epstein] the equipment to kill himself and he had to pay for it dearly,” Kasman claimed, as quoted by Raw Story.
The jail is a facility where “almost anything can be bought if you have the bucks,” according to the New York Post report.
Kasman claimed that when Gotti was held in the facility, despite being kept under the jail’s highest security, “He had Peter Luger’s whenever he wanted,” referring to steak dinners from the popular, 132-year-old Brooklyn restaurant, Peter Luger Steak House.
