Epstein's death was posted to 4chan half an hour before officials announced it

This seems bad. Buzzfeed:

Almost 40 minutes before ABC News first reported Epsteins death on Twitter, someone posted still-unverified details on 4chan, the anonymous message board popular with far-right trolls and white nationalists. [D]ont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this, read the post, which was published at 8:16 a.m. alongside an image of Pepe, the green frog that has become a mascot for right-wing internet trolls. ... the original poster added more information to the discussion thread, including a detailed breakdown of the procedures allegedly used to resuscitate Epstein, which suggest the poster may have been a first responder, medical worker, or otherwise privy to details about efforts to resuscitate the disgraced financier.

The Fire Department of New York apparently suspects one of their own and is "reviewing" the posting, but insists it is not "investigating" it. Read the rest
