Jeffrey Epstein's Death Was Announced on 4Chan, Authorities Had to Investigate

Before the news of Jeffrey Epstein's death was publicly announced by ABC News on Friday, a post appeared on 4chan that gave detailed information about his death.

As of now, it's unclear whether an EMT or a hospital staffer wrote the original post, but both would have had access to the information that ended up on 4chan. The poster provided information on the resuscitation effort-writing, for instance, that the effort to revive Epstein lasted 60 minutes-leading to speculation the poster could be a first responder.

Epstein was found dead in his jail cell at the Manhattan Correctional Center on Saturday morning, touching off a firestorm of conspiracy theories about how an inmate who apparently tried to kill himself once before ultimately pulled off the feat. Dr. Keith Wesley, the author of several EMS textbooks, said the post "sounds like standard American Heart Association guidelines, which most EMS agencies use". As for the claims that followed, those are potentially falsified, and the New York Fire Department is unable to confirm or deny them as doing so would be a violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

"The department will review this incident", Gribbon said. This determination was made after a review of the incident.

Oren Barzilay, the president of the union for EMT workers Local 2507 in NY, told Buzzfeed News, "Our members do not release this type of confidential information". He concluded, "There's serious consequences for those violations. Discipline. Suspensions. Civil penalties, etc.", Barzilay explained in an email.

It's within the realm of possibility the initial poster simply "got lucky" by claiming to have specific knowledge when he or she did, less than an hour before news of Epstein's death became public.

The supposed leak was posted to the anonymous message board 4chan at 8:16 a.m. Saturday, around 40 minutes before The Post broke the news of the convicted pedophile's death, Buzzfeed News reported.

Donald Trump said earlier he wanted a full investigation into the circumstances surrounding Epstein's death.

Many of these powerful individuals have flown on Epstein's private plane or attended parties with him.
