Prison Offers Bizarre Reason For Not Releasing Jeffrey Epstein’s Death Records

The Bureau of Prisons is refusing to hand over information pertinent to recently deceased convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

BizPac Review reports that the bureau responded to a Freedom of Information Act request submitted by investigative reporter Sheryl Attkisson, where they said they are “not required” to fulfill it as the information she requested is “categorically exempt from disclosure.”

The bureau said the disclosed information “could reasonably be expected to endanger the life or physical safety of an(y) individual.”

Attkisson adds:

There’s a bit of news in the case of Jeffrey Epstein. He’s the convicted sex offender who somehow managed to commit suicide in a New York jail last month while he was supposed to be under close watch.

My public information request about his death— has been formally denied.

Shortly after Epstein died in August, I filed a Freedom of Information request for public documents about his injuries and medical care for both the day he died and earlier, in July, when he reportedly attempted suicide.

Member of the public and press are entitled to review documents and communications generated and collected by federal agencies and officials because– we own them. However, federal agencies often delay, obstruct and resist the release of such documents.

Here’s even more from BizPac Review:

The other exemptions included “unwarranted invasion of personal privacy” and that fulfilling the request “could reasonably be expected to interfere with law enforcement proceedings.”

“Accordingly, this Office is not required to conduct a search for the requested records,” the letter to Attkisson stated.

However, the Bureau did tell her to keep re-filing the FOIA request “to see if the status changes.”

The denial of the request to release the Epstein documents to the public only added to the controversy surrounding his death and the questions which still seem to be unanswered even with a formal determination by the New York City medical examiner that Epstein died by suicide.
