Tucker Carlson stunned viewers on his Fox News program on Wednesday night when he revealed that authorities claimed there were no recordings of the calls made by former inmate Jeffery Epstein, who was later discovered dead in his jail cell. Authorities asserted at the time that Epstein committed suicide.
“So it looks like the NYPD deleted the recordings of 911 calls from the jail. So we thought, well, how about the FBI? We called over to the FBI to say do you have any 911 recordings from the jail, from the federal lockup, and we got no response,” Carlson claimed on his primetime show.

Since Epstein’s death in August 2019, it has been speculated that jail officials and erstwhile associates of the disgraced pedophile philanthropist may have murdered him and portrayed it as a suicide. Carlson questioned why, three and a half years after the purported “suicide,” the Department of Justice has not reached a conclusion.
The Daily Wire reported additional details about this alleged coverup:
The NYPD informed him that this was due to the fact that the documents were “well past the 12-month retention period.” The Daily Wire has contacted the NYPD to inquire whether or not any relevant communications have been deleted and whether or not they are still accessible.
“It looks like the NYPD deleted the recordings of 911 calls from the jail,” Carlson said, adding that his team had also reached out to the FBI to inquire if they had any calls but had received no response.
Many believe that Epstein’s trial would have exposed the crimes of powerful global elites that he exploited through his sex trafficking operation, thus making his demise highly controversial. As a consequence, the events leading up to his death have been thoroughly investigated.
Even though he was under suicide watch, Epstein was found hanged in his cell before he could be brought to trial. DOJ continues to interview those involved in his supervision and hopes to reach a conclusion shortly, despite the guards’ insistence that no protocol violations occurred. Critics have speculated that the investigation into Epstein’s abrupt death is under political pressure to avoid implicating any powerful associates and co-conspirators in his felony crimes.
“Contrary to protocol, Epstein was not checked on every 30 minutes the night of his death at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, where he was being detained, sources told multiple news outlets. Some of the footage captured near Epstein’s cell was also unusable, according to The Washington Post, though other footage was available for review. The FBI later opened an investigation into the camera malfunction outside Epstein’s jail cell,” The Daily Wire reported.
According to the attorney who would have represented Epstein, he was unlikely to commit suicide.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
“I was told that on August 9, Mr. Epstein remained animated and gave every indication he was planning to fight the case vigorously as we had discussed. On August 10, he was dead,” lawyer David Schoen told Newsweek. “So my first reason for believing it was not suicide is based simply on the anecdotal evidence from my own observations in meeting with him and from reports I received throughout the week.” CONTINUE READING…
