Jeffrey Epstein’s life may be in danger as his powerful pals do not want him to reveal their secrets, his victims’ lawyer has claimed.
Spencer Kuvin, who represents three of the billionaire perv’s sex trafficking accusers, threw doubt on claims the financier attempted suicide.
Epstein was found “sprawled on the floor” and “blue in the face” in a New York jail, last Tuesday according to reports.
Investigators are still probing whether it was a suicide attempt or if the shamed 66-year-old was attacked.
Now Kuvin believes Epstein knows so much dirt about his rich and famous friends that there may be some individuals willing to organise a “hit” on him to prevent that information ever getting out.
“I question whether or not it was a true suicide attempt that Mr Epstein was involved in in jail or whether or not there may be some powerful people who just don’t want him to talk,” Kuvin told Sun Online.
“If he goes on trial, everyone he’s been in contact with will ultimately be fair game.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that no jail will protect you when there’s powerful people that want to reach you – wherever you are.
“If he’s going to implicate anyone in power that has the ability to reach in and somehow get to him – his life is definitely in jeopardy.
“I do question whether it was a true suicide attempt. I mean how do you choke yourself? It doesn’t make any sense.
“There are reports someone came after him but that could just be because he’s a paedophile. Those types of individuals don’t last long in prison.
“If Epstein is in general population or anywhere available to the general population I believe his life is in jeopardy.
“They will have to seal him down in the jail. But even there there are still people who can get to him, ultimately.”
