Ghislaine Maxwell has admitted she thinks her pedophile ex-partner Jeffrey Epstein’s death behind bars three years ago is “profoundly suspicious.”
The locked-up socialite told documentary filmmaker Daphne Barak that she was “totally shocked” when her well-connected ex was found dead in his Manhattan cell in August 2019 — and still has doubts it was suicide.
“The Bureau of Prisons has failed to release the autopsy report, and allegedly none of the cameras were working,” Maxwell, 60, told the filmmaker in excerpts published by the Sun.
“Allegedly, the guards were sleeping,” she added of troubling details that have fueled ongoing conspiracies.
“I think that unexplained death is profoundly suspicious,” she insisted in an interview in which she also recalled her “special friendship” with former President Bill Clinton.
The disgraced socialite — serving 20 years for sex-trafficking young girls for Epstein — stressed that she had no inside information on her one-time boyfriend’s death, which came nearly a year before her arrest.
However, her suspicions are raised in part because of “the history of, and the activities of, the Bureau of Prisons, the lack of transparency and the fact they have many unexplained things that happen within,” Maxwell said.
“So I’m saying he’s one among many,” she said of Epstein, according to other excerpts in the Daily Mail.
“I just find it suspicious,” she stressed again.
The city medical examiner has repeatedly stood behind its decision to rule Epstein’s death a suicide.
However, it has long sparked conspiracies, fueled by a separate autopsy by famed pathologist Michael Baden, who said that “the evidence points toward homicide.”
As Maxwell noted, the guards assigned to watch Epstein had not done their routine 30-minute checks of the prisoner, allegedly sleeping on the job and then falsifying records. The cameras on Epstein’s cell also malfunctioned that night, officials said.
Maxwell said her suspicions were heightened by her own experiences behind bars, especially her time at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where she met Barak for the first of two interviews for the upcoming Paramount+ documentary.
“I’ve never been lied to so many times … It was a culture of untruth, a culture of disrespect that frankly needs to be brought to light,” she said of her time in Brooklyn.
The worst of it came when she was placed on suicide watch, which she insisted was revenge for her complaints about conditions rather than genuine fears she might follow Epstein by killing herself.
“I do not possess a single suicidal bone in my body,” she insisted, according to the Mail’s excerpts.
“I have never been suicidal. I’ve never contemplated it. I’ve never thought about it. It has never crossed my mind in my entire life.
