Ghislaine Maxwell suggests her paedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein was murdered in prison and says she is ‘not convinced’ he killed himself

Ghislaine Maxwell is ‘not convinced’ her former lover Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, a source close to the socialite has said.
Epstein, who had already been found guilty in previous child sex cases, was found hanged in his cell at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Centre where he was awaiting trial on a string of sex-trafficking charges.
Maxwell, who is said to be in hiding as the FBI’s net closes around Epstein’s circle, was accused yesterday of procuring girls for the paedophile financier in England and taking them to the US to have sex with him on his private jet.
‘She is not convinced he killed himself. Who is? The only one is the medical examiner in New York,’ the Sun reported a source close to Maxwell saying
‘The only thing anybody knows for sure is that he died on a particular date at a particular time.
‘Prisons are dangerous places and particularly dangerous for paedophiles.
‘You don’t have to buy into a conspiracy theory to believe that he was killed in prison.’
Epstein’s cause of death was ruled as a suicide by hanging by the New York coroner but an investigator hired by Epstein’s estate said the scene was more consistent with murder.
Epstein victim Virginia Roberts claims Maxwell recruited her into the financier’s circle before he forced her to have sex with his wealthy and powerful friends, including Prince Andrew, when she was 17. The prince has denied any wrongdoing
Like Maxwell, Roberts also senses foul play around Epstein’s death.
In December she tweeted: ‘I am no conspiracist, I rely on facts, things that are real & I can see. The problem here is we can’t see anything at all. It’s all gone “missing”.
‘Epstein’s case from the start to now has been shrouded in secrecy & deceit. #EpsteinSuicideCoverUp.”
Another accuser of Epstein asked where the investigation was into his ‘murder’.
The conspiracy theories suggest Epstein was killed to protect his powerful friends from scandal.
The Maxwell source, however, said the theories were ‘conspiracy conclusions’ and that in prison, there are murderers with a hatred for those guilty of sex offences against children.
