Tucker Carlson astonished 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 deceased 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 assassinated 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 information on this suspected coverup:
He said NYPD told him this was because the documentation was “well past the 12 month retention period.” The Daily Wire has contacted the NYPD inquiring whether any relevant calls had been deleted and if any were available.
“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 ask if they had any calls but received no response.
Epstein’s death quickly became controversial as many believe his trial would have exposed the crimes of powerful global elites he had leveraged through his sex trafficking operation. As a result, the circumstances leading up to his death have been heavily scrutinized.
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 officers’ 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.
“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.”
Epstein had a lengthy history of supporting Democratic causes, particularly those of former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Epstein’s contributions to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Gates’ foundation placed him in contact with some of the world’s wealthiest individuals, whom he reportedly also hosted on his private island.
As a result of Epstein’s arrest on child abuse charges, it became evident that he and his co-conspirators had recruited vulnerable young girls for sexual purposes and for other acts that the accused claimed were not true but were known to the Clintons, Gates, and others surrounding them at the time.
