We have been chronicling the series of facts in the Jeff Epstein case that don’t make any sense.
There are so many, including:
- Cameras that covered the room suddenly “malfunctioning”
- The conflicting medical examiner reports
- Whether or not the bed sheet was strong enough to even cause damage
- Whether the bed was high enough to hang a 6’+ man
- How and why he was taken off suicide watch
- Many irregularities with the guards
And on and on and on….
But perhaps the most damning evidence of all is when someone comes out and predicts this will happen weeks earlier….and then it does!
Such appears to be the case with Spencer Kuvin, attorney for many of Epstein’s victims.
Look at this tweet from July 29 where he predicts exactly the kind of death that eventually happened:
Of course we all know what happened.
Just a few short weeks later, Epstein was dead.
And Kuvin was right...Epstein did not live to see his trial.
So Kuvin is back, now making noise that he does not believe the death was suicide:
Newsweek has more:
The lawyer who represented victims of Jeffrey Epstein has voiced doubts that he killed himself because he says the convicted pedophile was too vain and always believed he was right.
Epstein was found dead from an apparent suicide in a federal detention center in Manhattan before he could face trial for sex trafficking charges. The FBI is investigating the circumstances of the death.
West Palm Beach attorney Spencer Kuvin represented three of the more than two dozen women who had brought civil complaints against the financier in 2008 and 2009.
He told BBC radio that he knew Epstein as a litigant and a defendant and had met him at numerous settlement conferences.
When asked about his apparent suicide, Kuvin said that such an act was not in keeping with his personality.
"I am still not convinced that ultimately he took his own life....I'm not convinced because I knew him as a vain man, a very intelligent man who was a person who always defended what he did, even in light of all the evidence against him," he told Beyond Today.
"He basically took the position, that no matter how old these young girls were, that they chose to be with him and he didn't care (about) their age.
"So someone like that, I just find it very hard to believe that he would take his own life," he added.
"Having said that, even if he did, there were massive failures in the criminal justice system that allowed this to occur."
Last month, Epstein was found on the prison floor with injuries in a suspected suicide attempt.
After the incident, Kuvin had warned that it may have not have been an attempt to kill himself and might be linked to the dirt he had on powerful friends, which might come out in a trial.
Here's more, from Law.com:
West Palm Beach attorney Spencer T. Kuvin sat across the room from Epstein’s counsel more than a decade ago, representing three of the more than two dozen women who brought civil complaints against Epstein between 2008 and 2009.
What he saw was a complex character, who seemed at once charming and off-putting, according to Kuvin, litigation director of the Law Office of Craig Goldenfarb.
“Whenever [Esptein's] lawyers would try to discuss the case, he would always try to interject, and he would even correct his own lawyers,” Kuvin said. “Even within his own law team, he felt he was smarter than them.”
Robert D. Critton Jr. of Critton, Luttier & Coleman in West Palm Beach served as one of Epstein’s local attorneys at that time. He did not respond to a request for comment by deadline.
Another of Epstein’s lawyers, Michael J. Pike of Pike & Lustig in Miami, was opposing counsel against Kuvin. Pike declined to discuss his impressions of Epstein, saying that attorney-client privilege survived, even after his former client’s death.
But according to Kuvin, Epstein exuded an air of superiority. Although Epstein was quiet, Kuvin said, preferring to sit back and listen to conversations, he’d regularly jump into conversations among the attorneys.
To Kuvin, it seemed the wealth manager-turned-convicted sex offender wanted “everyone to be his friend,” and would brag about the high-profile people in his social circle, including scholars and university professors.
“He was always pleasant in demeanor and had a friendly type of personality,” Kuvin said. “That was never the issue. And I think he was a smart individual. I don’t think he was as smart as he thought he was, but he was very pleasant, very quiet, very soft-spoken, and he would always try to smile and be friendly with people.”
That said, Kuvin said he also got the impression that Epstein was a “creepy individual,” who allegedly tied to befriend and curry favor with his alleged victims.
The lawsuits, which settled, alleged Epstein had sexually assaulted and abused underage girls. They came after Epstein, a financier who has homes in Manhattan and South Florida, pleaded guilty in Florida in 2008 to procuring a minor for prostitution and felony solicitation of prostitution.
Epstein served 13 months in Palm Beach County jail and was later placed on work release as part of a now-infamous plea deal. At the time of his death, Epstein was on trial in New York on charges of child sex trafficking and conspiracy.
One of Kuvin’s former clients was among the first accusers to come forward, prompting Palm Beach County police to investigate Epstein. This led to Kuvin being among the first attorneys to take Epstein’s deposition.
It was the quickest deposition of Kuvin’s career.
The brief exchange ending abruptly in response to Kuvin’s question about whether Epstein’s penis was oval-shaped, as one alleged victim had claimed.
“It lasted all of a minute,” Kuvin said. “[Epstein] got up and walked out, and the judge sanctioned him $800 and made him return.”
