Why was Jeffrey Epstein’s death on 4chan before it became public?

The New York City Fire Department has launched an investigation into whether Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide was leaked by a first responder on internet message board 4chan before officials announced the death, according to a report.

The supposed leak was posted to the anonymous message board 4chan at 8:16 a.m. Saturday, around 40 minutes before The Post broke the news of the convicted pedophile’s death, Buzzfeed News reported.

“[D]ont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this,” the post said.

FDNY Deputy Commissioner Frank Gribbon said he “could not verify the accuracy” of the 4chan post, according to the news outlet.

“The department will review this incident,” Gribbon said.
