John McAfee, founder of the McAfee anti-virus software company, has said he doesn't think the death of Jeffrey Epstein was suicide. McAfee, who was once named as a 'person of interest' regarding the murder of his neighbour, told news.com.au: "The man was six-foot-one, he hung himself from a bed that was only five-foot-seven in a manner that managed to break his neck in multiple places similar to someone being physically strangled. McAfee - who is now a fugitive living on a yacht and claims the Internal Revenue Service are pursuing him for tax evasion - went on to say that if you 'add all that stuff up' then it wasn't 'possible' that Epstein killed himself. Seventy-four-year-old McAfee has since taken to Twitter to clear up what he said after it was reported that he said Epstein, who was awaiting trial for charges of federal sex trafficking, had been 'murdered'. Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his New York cell in August.
A statement from the US Department of Justice read: "On Saturday August 10, 2019, at approximately 6.30am inmate Jeffrey Edward Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell at the Special Housing Unit from an apparent suicide at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre (MCC) in New York, New York. The sentence "Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself" has emerged as a pop culture catchphrase popping up on TV and on memes across social media, sometimes creating awkward moments when people question the narrative surrounding the now-deceased sex offender's mysterious death. "I would say mainly just the no-nonsense policies and especially since Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself," a student identified as Parker said on live television. ABC NEWS' AMY ROBACH CAUGHT ON HOT MIC SAYING NETWORK SPIKED JEFFREY EPSTEIN BOMBSHELL New York City Medical Examiner officially listed Jeffrey Epstein's death as a suicide by hanging. Robach said on an infamous hot mic video – that was leaked to the media from within ABC News – that she "100 percent" thinks Epstein was actually murdered.
He later added: 'I never said Jeffrey Epstein was murdered. Antivirus pioneer John McAfee has listed the reasons why Jeffrey Epstein could not have killed himself, suggesting his injuries show the pedophile was strangled and insists he was too tall to hang himself on the bed frame Listing the pedophiles height, as well as claims by a pathologist hired by the Epstein, pictured, family that his death was more consistent with homicidal strangulation than by suicide, McAfee argued the evidence does not point towards suicide McAfee said he could not comment on rumors he was responsible for leaked drone footage from the millionaire sex offender's private Caribbean island in July. A leading forensic pathologist and former New York City medical examiner said in October Epstein's body bore telltale signs of homicide by strangulation and not suicide. And Mark Epstein said his brother had unexplained cuts on his body that could not be explained by a jail cell hanging, and that his attempts to obtain a medical file have been thwarted at every turn. Former New York City medical examiner Dr Michael Baden, pictured, said that Epstein's death was more consistent with homicidal strangulation than by suicide But New York City Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson doubled down her findings saying: 'Our investigation concluded that the cause of Mr. Epstein's death was hanging and the manner of death was suicide.
"The man was 6-foot-1, he hung himself from a bed that was only 5-foot-7 in a manner that managed to break his neck in multiple places similar to someone being physically strangled," he said. Given all the evidence, McAfee said: "I don't see how a suicide is possible." The paranoid 74-year-old said Epstein might have kept records and surveillance video of the activities that took place on his private Caribbean island. "It would not be beyond belief to think that he might have kept recordings of whatever activities were happening on the island and people found out about it," he said. I said he didn't commit suicide.
