  • That Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide was a relief to the world’s most powerful men – including the British Royal Family and the President of the United States – is beyond dispute. His silence puts an end to fears of embarrassing revelations in court, which in turn raises suspicions that he did not take his own life at all. Could Epstein have been an international spy silenced by his handlers? We examine all the circumstances and conspiracies around Epstein’s sudden death, ask why he was taken off suicide watch and how he gathered the materials to end his life, and probe into what his passing means for his victims and for those accused of complicity in his crimes. We will answer the question on everyone’s minds: Who actually killed Jeffrey Epstein?

  • Jeffrey Epstein's cellmate, and the witness to his first suicide attempt, breaks his silence. In this world exclusive interview, the cellmate reveals what he saw in graphic detail, including how Epstein was blue in the face and feet, how the guards mocked the unconscious Epstein as they dropped him from hip height to the ground, and the sound his skull made as it cracked on the floor. We learn of the conditions in the Metropolitan Correctional Center: rats, cockroaches and no toilet paper; and of the inmates who threatened Epstein, those who protected him, and how the guards treated him.

  • Jeffrey Epstein was released from prison in 2010, but the fight for justice never stopped. Years later, he was hit with a barrage of civil cases that would eventually result in his arrest in July 2019 on sex trafficking charges. We now focus on the July 6th police raid of his Manhattan townhouse, the extraordinary cache of explicit evidence found there, exactly what the new charges are, and what revelations the new trial was set to uncover...including the testimony Epstein may have been preparing to give.

  • Police interviewed dozens of victims of Jeffrey Epstein and recommended a charge of at least four counts of unlawful sex with minors. But, in a scandalous miscarriage of justice, Epstein was allowed to plead guilty to soliciting prostitution – a plea deal that has been described as an example of a “defendant and government working together against the victims.” Sentenced to 18 months in prison, he was housed in his own wing, allowed out for 12 hours a day, and granted visitors, including women. Alexander Acosta, the State Attorney who brokered the deal, says he was told Epstein was “above [his] pay grade” and to “leave it alone”. Who was pulling the strings? Acosta was a member of Donald Trump’s Cabinet until after Epstein’s arrest, when he resigned. In this episode, attorneys and investigators who worked on that case at the time explain how Epstein got away with his sweetheart deal – and why it was a massive mistake.

  • One notorious member of Jeffrey Epstein’s circle was Prince Andrew, second son of the Queen of England and eighth in line to the British throne. Andrew met Epstein in the 90s, introduced by Ghislaine Maxwell. In 2001 a photograph was taken in Epstein’s home showing the Prince with his arm around 17-year-old Virginia Roberts, who later stated Epstein had coerced her into sexual relations with the Prince on several occasions. The Palace denies it, but who to believe? In an exclusive interview, Epstein’s New Mexico massage therapist recruiter, reveals a never-before-told eyewitness account of Prince Andrew’s time in the desert compound – with a different beautiful young woman.
