Since Jeffrey Epstein died in 2019, thousands of conspiracy theories have emerged about the disgraced financier.

The latest one suggests Epstein is not dead at all...

Keep scrolling to check it out.

Since the Jeffrey Epstein scandal kicked off last year...

Rumors have been flying around about how the notorious pedophile actually died.

People just don't know what to believe...

And now a new conspiracy theory claims Epstein isn't dead at all.

So... where did it all begin?

Jeffrey Epstein, born in New York City in 1953, made a name for himself with elite investment bank Bear Stearns, before founding his own investment firm. But now he's far better known for different reasons.

He is now known as a convicted sex offender.

Epstein was first convicted for a range of sex crimes in 2005, when he pleaded guilty to molesting an underage girl.

Epstein's crimes were far-reaching and varied.

But, by 2008, he has been convicted for running an underage prostitution ring connected to a number of high powered individuals. Epstein served just thirteen months for this conviction.

But this wasn't the end of his legal troubles.

On July 6th last year, Epstein was arrested again for sex trafficking of minors in the states of Florida and New York, and was held awaiting trial in a New York prison.

Many were looking forward to justice being served.

Epstein has managed to get away with vile, criminal acts for the majority of his life, most likely a result of his money and social clout. For his victims, there was finally hope of justice being done.

And many believed his conviction could uncover other high profile and wealthy sex offenders.

Epstein has numerous friends in high places, and one of those friends is in one of the highest places possible - sitting in the Oval Office. Epstein has had a long friendship with Donald Trump, and his convictions for these horrific crimes have not reflected well on the President.

The Netflix docu-series, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, that was released earlier this year catapulted the whole thing into the spotlight.

The documentary gave several of Epstein's victims a platform they had never had before and they each detailed similar, yet horrifying tales of being sexually assaulted and raped while giving Epstein and his friends "massages."

Many huge names were yet again thrown under the bus...

And the heat was seriously turned up on Epstein's former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, who was the one who trafficked and groomed most of the young girls who were abused by the predator.

So, understandably, people were delighted when the news broke of her arrest in July.

It was reported that Maxwell had finally been arrested by the FBI in New Hampshire at around 8:30 am on the 6th of July.

The British socialite was taken straight into custody...

And she was described as a flight risk during the hearing, so was therefore ordered to remain in custody while she is transferred to New York for a detention hearing.

Maxwell was formally charged with 6 counts:

Conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, and 2 counts of perjury, according to the indictment.

She was also charged for repeatedly lying about her involvement in the trafficking ring during a 2016 deposition.

This is a huge development in the fight for justice and, if found guilty, Maxwell could be facing thirty-five-years behind bars if found guilty.

But it didn't take long for Maxwell to plead as not guilty.

At a hearing via video link, the disgraced socialite remained valiant in her innocence by pleading not guilty. However, she was still denied bail as US federal prosecutors said that she is an "extreme" flight risk and should remain in custody, as per the BBC.

Other people involved with Epstein included political figures such as Bill Clinton...

And, even more controversially, Prince Andrew from the British Royal Family. Of course, all of Epstein's high-profile friends have denied any involvement in this scandal, but people aren't too convinced.

But as we all know, before Epstein could dish the dirt on his friends...

He was found dead in his Manhattan prison cell on August 10th, 2019 - apparently as a result of hanging.

It was initially presumed that Epstein's death was a suicide...

But because of the nature of his crimes, plus the connections Epstein had to the political and social elite, some have other suspicions about what really happened.

Here's some of the background information.

Epstein was undoubtedly close to Donald Trump - who, in the past, had said that Epstein "likes beautiful women as much as I do."

There are many out there who will benefit by Epstein not standing trial...

And the fact that he "committed suicide" before any unsavory information could come out does seem like some suspiciously good timing for his past associates.

There appear to be a number of things that don't add up...

The idea that a man could manage to commit suicide while under tight surveillance already seems unlikely.

And the fact that the guards on patrol that evening were "asleep"...

Something very fishy is going on here.

A person being able to commit suicide while being kept under a suicide watch is very rare...

And the cameras facing Epstein's cell just happened to be broken that evening!

The conspiracy surrounding Epstein's death has been going on for quite some time...

And we can imagine the only people who truly know what happened will be those who were on the same prison block on the evening he died.

Well, one of the inmates who was on the same unit as Epstein spoken out...

And heads have been turned, to say the least!

People just don't seem to believe that Epstein's death was a result of suicide.

It's starting to look pretty obvious...

Would anyone really be shocked if it was all a cover-up job?

Well, what the inmate had to say was rather interesting.

Nicholas Tartaglione, an ex-Westchester cop who faces the death penalty in a quadruple homicide upstate, was being held a few cells away from Epstein on that fateful day.

The fifty-one-year-old is awaiting trial on charges after he murdered 4 men as part of a drug deal gone bad.

He is accused of burying the bodies on his Otisville property.

According to Tartaglione, the cell was deadly silent that evening.

"Nobody heard anything. It was a silent act," his lawyer Bruce Barket told NBC News.

The former Briarcliff Manor cop told investigators that he didn’t hear anything at the time...

And despite his intimidating size, he was adamant that he had nothing to do with Epstein's death - which is something that the murderer was later accused of.

Tartaglione's lawyer claims he knows more than he's giving off.

"Nick knows a heck of a lot about what went on," the lawyer claimed to NBC. "He was there during the first attempt and he was there when he actually killed himself — he just wasn’t in the same cell."

"Whether or not he’ll be in a position to cooperate remains unclear."

"But he certainly has information that would be very valuable to the investigation if they want access to it," Barket then said.

And now the latest conspiracy theory.

Suggests that Epstein isn't dead at all... In a recent YouTube video that is doing the rounds online, there are claims the pedophile was seen, alive and well, at his New Mexico ranch. In a clip posted to the YouTube channel ABQ Raw, a narrator suggests Epstein could be seen in a red truck, near the fence line of the property

Apparently the driver had a striking resemblance to Epstein...

The conspiracy theorist who created the video believes that Epstein faked his own death before 'riding off into the sunset'... Will we ever know the truth? Probably not.
