Pro-Trump Lawyer L. Lin Wood Claims Jeffrey Epstein Is Alive

A lawyer who has previously backed Donald Trump's claims of election fraud has said he believes convicted child sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is still alive.

L. Lin Wood shared the bizarre claim on Twitter without providing any evidence to back him up.

Epstein died in prison in 2019, where he was awaiting trial for sex trafficking and conspiracy to traffic minors for sex.

His death was ruled a suicide but has been fuel for conspiracy theorists, with many claiming he didn't kill himself.

Wood shared his beliefs in a long tweet which also contained another conspiracy theory about the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, who died of natural causes in 2016 aged 79, and the involvement of Chief Justice John Roberts.

Over the past few days, Wood has shared numerous tweets that claimed, without evidence, that Roberts was somehow involved in Scalia's death.

Wood wrote: "I am fully aware of the onslaught of attacks being made against me based on my revelations about Chief Justice John Roberts.

"Before attacking me, maybe fair-minded people would first ask Roberts to tell the truth.

"Or ask Jeffrey Epstein. He is alive."

Due to Epstein's connections to the world's richest and most powerful, including Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, conspiracy theorists went into overdrive when he died, with many claiming it was an inside job.

However, Bill Mersey, Epstein's former Inmate and Suicide Watch Counsellor at the time of his death, has shut down the claims.

Speaking on documentary Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein?, he said: "There's no way somebody got in there and killed him. Do you know how many people you'd have to pay off to get in there and kill him? There's just no way.

"To all the conspiracy theorists out there about Jeffrey Epstein's suicide vs murder, this is what I say: you're the same guys who think that the moon landing was fake. Don't be ridiculous. Get over it, he killed himself.

"There's no question about it in my mind. Case closed for me."

Wood has previously thrown his support behind Trump's efforts to claim his loss in the 2020 election to Joe Biden was fraudulent.

Neither Wood nor Trump has been able to provide solid evidence for these claims.
