#ClintonBodyCount trends in light of Epstein jail shocker

Jeffrey Epstein‘s apparent suicide has raised suspicions and sent social media hashtags trending as many questioned how prison personnel failed to prevent his death.

The billionaire financier was found dead Saturday after reportedly hanging himself at a Manhattan jail where the convicted sex offender was supposedly under a suicide watch. Epstein was hospitalized a few short weeks before for what appeared to be a suicide attempt that failed.

But his death on Saturday while awaiting trial for federal sex trafficking charges, and one day after the release of documents implicating several prominent political names – including Bill Clinton – instantly set off conspiracy theories. And top Twitter trends included the words “So Epstein,” as well as “Another Clinton” and the hashtag #ClintonBodyCount.

Verified Twitter users questioned how it was possible for Epstein to take his own life while prison personnel supposedly had him on suicide watch.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded an accounting for what happened.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough called it out as “bullsh*t” and even quipped that Russians may have been involved.

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett found Epstein’s cause of death “baffling.”

“Given evidence of an attack most recently against him they’re going to want to conduct an investigation that this was indeed self-inflicted, that this was suicide,” Jarrett told “Fox & Friends” Saturday.

“But the fact that he was in a solitary cell most recently and on suicide watch… it is baffling how somebody on suicide watch who is routinely checked every hour and usually there are cameras, could manage to accomplish a suicide,” he added. “And not only that, when you’re on suicide watch in a jail cell, under normal protocol they remove absolutely everything in the cell that could be used for hanging.”

“So I’m not quite sure how he managed to accomplish this unless they violated their own protocol,” he noted.

The theories on Twitter abounded as the reports of the 66-year-old billionaire’s death unfolded.
