Members of the public aren’t the only ones skeptical about the alleged suicide of deceased pedophile Jeffrey’s Epstein’s notorious pimp, Jean-Luc Brunel — so is the family of Epstein’s notorious madam, Ghislaine Maxwell.

In stunning remarks made to the New York Post, Maxwell’s older brother said on Saturday that the whole family “fears for her safety”

“It’s really shocking. Another death by hanging in a high-security prison. My reaction is one of total shock and bewilderment,” Ian Maxwell said in response to Brunel’s stunning death late Friday/early Saturday in a Paris prison.

The death, allegedly by suicide via hanging, sent shockwaves through the world because it perfectly mirrored the way in which Epstein himself allegedly committed suicide three years earlier in a federal detention center in lower Manhattan.

As previously reported, it’s extremely difficult to commit suicide behind bars because of all the 24/7 surveillance. Yet both Epstein and Brunel allegedly managed to do it.

Epstein allegedly succeeded in committing suicide because the security guards on duty just happened to be sleeping and browsing the Internet that night instead of keeping an eye out on prisoners. This seemed suspicious to the public.

Even more suspicious still was that the cameras outside Epstein’s cell had magically malfunctioned on the night of his death. Regarding Brunel’s death, the camera situation remains unclear, though tabloid outlets like the Daily Express have claimed that he died “in a part of [the] Paris prison where the security cameras were reportedly not working.”

Given both the nature of Brunel’s death and the unknowns regarding the cameras, Twitter blew up with speculation and theories after news of his demise emerged, with the most prominent theory being that he’d been killed “just like Epstein”:

But what makes this theory so potent is that Maxwell’s own family appears to believe it as well. Their suspicion seems to stem from two established facts — one, that Maxwell is currently housed in the same federal detention center where Epstein died, and two, federal authorities have incorrectly deemed her a suicide risk.

According to the Post, Maxwell’s brother “insisted his younger sister is not suicidal, and said that it was ‘ironic’ that Epstein and Brunel … were not on suicide watches in their respective prisons” when they died.

To be clear, though Epstein died while off suicide watch, he’d been on suicide watch weeks earlier after a failed suicide attempt in late July of 2019.

“Despite the psychiatrist advising to the contrary, she was deemed a suicide risk and they are continuing to wake her up every 15 minutes in the night. It’s a complete violation of prisoner rights and human rights,” Ian said the Post.

Members of the public say that if Maxwell’s family is truly concerned about her potentially being harmed or even offed, their best bet would be to encourage her to starting name names, asap:

Maxwell had played a central role in Epstein’s sex trafficking ring and thus presumably knows the names of all the high-powered men who’d participated in it.

While some of these men, such as disgraced Prince Andrew, have been outed, many still remain hidden from the light. And as it stands, Maxwell may very well represent the victims’ last chance to hold them all accountable …
