Homeowner Puts Up Christmas Lights With Controversial Message About Jeffrey Epstein
| Last updated
A homeowner has added some rather controversial Christmas lights to the outside of his house which suggest that billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself.
Kevin Gibson, from Lacey in New Jersey, added the decorations which read: "These lights didn't hang themselves," before another display adds: "Neither did Epstein."
Sharing photographs of the spectacle - which also included the word 'Merica' - on Facebook, Kevin wrote: "My lights were boring me so i added a little razzle dazzle".
According to Gibson his neighbours aren't overly concerned about the controversial display. In an interview with NJ.com he said: "This year I've got mostly great feedback. Here and there somebody said it isn't appropriate for the holidays, but you always have one."
Speaking about the thought process behind putting something like this outside your home, Kevin added that it was to 'add a little humour to life".
He continued: "People are too serious," before concluding: "Of course Epstein didn't kill himself."
Back in August, Epstein was said to have killed himself in his New York jail cell where he was being held pending a trial on federal sex trafficking charges.
He was discovered at 07:30 local time (11:30 GMT) on 10 August at the prison cell and was reportedly seen being taken in an ambulance to New York Downtown Hospital shortly after.
The billionaire was facing federal charges of molesting teenage girls, but had pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking and conspiracy charges and was being held without bail.
While the death was officially ruled as a suicide by the New York medical examiner, conspiracy theories have been rife in the months that have followed, with many questioning whether Epstein actually did commit suicide.
Dr Michael Baden, the former chief medical examiner for New York City, said that he now suspects foul play, most likely strangulation. He told Fox News: "I think that the evidence points toward homicide rather than suicide."
Epstein had pleaded not guilty to child sex charges, including the alleged abuse of girls as young as 14, in New York and Florida in the early 2000s. Those allegations are still being pursued even after his death.
