The mystery surrounding deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s inexplicable time in police custody continues to deepen.

Recall that after Epstein allegedly committed suicide in August, the cameras outside his cell were found to have conveniently malfunctioned.

Four months later, it’s now been confirmed that the cameras had been working when the deceased pedophile first made an alleged failed suicide attempt in July.

There’s just one problem: The July 23rd surveillance footage has conveniently gone missing.

“Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Swergold admitted nobody can find the footage of the outside of the cell the multimillionaire perv shared with accused quadruple murderer Nick Tartaglione during a hearing in White Plains District Court,” the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

“Tartaglione, a former Briarcliff Manor cop, faces the death penalty for the alleged murders in a drug deal gone bad. Bruce Barket, an attorney for Tartaglione, confirmed the stunning revelation that the footage was not preserved. The Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office declined comment.”

Tartaglione’s interest in the footage stems from his claim that Epstein’s alleged July 23rd suicide attempt failed because of his intervention.

“The video footage was relevant to Tartaglione’s defense because it is potentially evidence of the ex-cop’s good character. In the event Tartaglione is found guilty and reaches the death penalty phase, the Epstein incident could possibly be evidence showing why he doesn’t deserve to die,” the Daily News notes.

“We want to be sure that all the evidence is preserved to show that Nick behaved appropriately and even admirably that evening,” his lawyer, Bruce Barket, has reportedly maintained. “We asked for all the video and photographic evidence to be preserved, specifically this surveillance video. Now it’s gone.”

To make matters worse, the authorities “had no explanation for why the footage has gone missing — they said they simply can’t find it,” according to TMZ.

They’ve also been unable to provide any legitimate explanation for why:

  • The guards assigned to watch him on the night of his successful alleged suicide in August slept through it and then falsified reports.
  • His autopsy was apparently inconclusive.
  • Epstein was removed from suicide watch after trying to commit suicide in July.
  • Shrieking was allegedly heard from his cell prior to his death.
  • And Tartaglione was reportedly transferred out of the cell hours before he died.

The never-ending list of discrepancies and oddities about Epstein’s time in lockup, not to mention his still-unexplained “suicide” — have led some to theorize that he was murdered.

These theories have in turn spurred the media into labeling anyone who questions the official narrative of what happened a “conspiracy theorist.”

But as noted by some, the discrepancies and oddities have become so abundant that the status quo narrative — that Epstein committed suicide —  has become the real conspiracy theory:

What’s known for certain is that the Department of Justice has launched a formal investigation into Epstein’s bizarre death.

Moreover, while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Nov. 19, Bureau of Prisons Director Kathleen Hawk Sawyer revealed that investigators are considering whether a “criminal enterprise” may have been involved with the pedophile’s death.

However, she also conceded that investigators had yet to uncover any evidence suggesting or proving that Epstein’s death wasn’t a suicide.

Watch:

Later that day on Nov. 19th, the two guards assigned to watch over Epstein were charged for falsifying records.

What’s also known for certain is that Epstein’s baffling death has spawned a new viral hashtag-based meme so popular that even members of Congress have shared it.

And not surprisingly, the meme is now going even more viral thanks to the latest findings (or lack thereof):
