We are set to finally discover the truth of what went on in Epstein’s cell on the night of his death after one of the two prison guards who were arrested, has decided to spill the details.
Tova Noel, who was charged Tuesday with falsifying records to cover an unauthorized period of absence, now says she wants to cooperate with Federal prosecutors to expose details about that sketchy night Epstein “committed suicide” to Federal investigators.
Noel and her fellow prison guard Michael Thomas were arrested Tuesday and charged with criminal conspiracy and falsifying official records “for allegedly fudging ‘count slips’ while failing for hours to check on Epstein and other inmates in the MCC’s ninth-floor Special Housing Unit,” according to the New York Post.
Epstein had attempted suicide by hanging just a week before and had only recently been moved off suicide watch when Noel and Thomas decided to abrogate their duties and spend the evening “goofing off,” as the Post put it.
Upon returning to their posts at 6:30 AM to bring Epstein breakfast, they found the powerful pedophile already dead, hanging in his cell after supposedly ripping strips of cloth from his bedsheet to make a noose.
While It’s not clear exactly what information Noel has that would interest either the Department of Justice or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, aside from details about why she was missing from her post for at least two hours the night Epstein hung himself in his prison cell, she must have something bigger to share.
Federal investigators are looking to get to the bottom of the extremely odd circumstances and events surrounding Epstein’s death.
As reported earlier this week, the Bureau of Prisons chief, in charge of the Manhattan prison where Epstein died, admitted that the FBI and DOJ may be considering the possibility that a “criminal enterprise” was involved in the incident.
The two guards were arrested Tuesday after being informed they were under scrutiny sometime late last week.
“As alleged, the defendants had a duty to ensure the safety and security of federal inmates in their care at the Metropolitan Correctional Center,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said about the arrests in a statement. “Instead, they repeatedly failed to conduct mandated checks on inmates, and lied on official forms to hide their dereliction.”
Wednesday, Noel’s lawyers made their first efforts at inking a plea deal by offering information.
“In fact, Ms. Noel remains available to fully and truthfully cooperate with the Inspector General’s investigation, which is also geared toward uncovering the many problems that existed from the commencement of her employment which continue to plague the Metropolitan Correctional Center,” her defense lawyer said in a statement.
In addition to “sleeping” guards, the jail also conveniently suffered from malfunctioning security cameras and questionable management, all of which affected Epstein’s stay.
Additionally, the autopsy that Epstein’s brother paid to have performed, suggested that the death was likely NOT a suicide
The FBI and DOJ investigations are ongoing. Congress is also currently hearing testimony from jail officials over how they were able to lose such a high-profile defendant.
While the Epstein death hearings have not gotten the media coverage that they deserve due to the impeachment sham, the public has surely not forgotten about Epstein and the question of who may have killed him.
