Outrage as Jeffrey Epstein Christmas jumpers go on sale declaring paedo ‘didn’t kill himself’

SICK and twisted T-shirts featuring a mocked-up image of the paedophile tycoon Jeffrey Epstein emblazoned on a Christmas jumper with the phrase "didn’t kill himself”.

Online outlets are full of sweaters peddling conspiracies that the 66-year-old was murdered rather than the official verdict that he committed suicide. 

As well as sicko sweaters, Christmas tree ornaments and other holiday goods have appeared on retail sites like Amazon and Etsy also touting conspiracies that the 66-year-old was bumped off by his powerful friends who were afraid of being implicated in his crimes. 

One costing £15 read: "Christmas lights are a lot like Epstein — they don’t hang themselves."

This sweater, available on Amazon, features the late financier in a Santa hat. 

Other ornaments also include the allegation, including one featuring a noose.

Another one reads: "During Christmas, an elf may sit on a shelf, but Epstein didn’t kill himself."

Then there is a notebook with “Merry Christmas! Epstein didn’t kill himself” on the cover.

And also throw pillows, mugs and even a diary, all with plastered with denials that Epstein committed suicide.

Epstein was a financier who killed himself in a New York cell in August while awaiting trial on further charges of sex trafficking.

Following Epstein’s death autopsy photos later revealed Epstein had a fracture to his neck and the city's medical examiner ruled his death a suicide.

But that hasn't stopped theories the sex fiend was murdered.

Especially after New York City’s former chief medical examiner Dr Michael Baden concluded after his own examination that Epstein did not kill himself and was most likely strangled.

“I think that the evidence points toward homicide rather than suicide,” Baden insisted on Fox News last month.

A previously reported T-shirt featuring a mocked-up image of the Queen and Prince Andrew holidaying with Jeffrey Epstein’s corpse are being sold online.

The merchandise – a spoof of cult film Weekend At Bernie’s – shows the royals propping up the paedo tycoon on a tropical beach beneath the banner: “Weekend at Epstein’s”.

Recent weeks have seen the royal family drawn further into the scandal surrounding Epstein, with Prince Andrew facing questions about his long-held friendship with the late paedophile.

In November, Andrew stepped down from his royal duties after a widely-criticised BBC interview addressing allegations of sexual contact between him and Epstein victim Virginia Roberts when she was 17.

He has always denied any wrongdoing.

Who was Jeffrey Epstein and what was he accused of?

Jeffrey Epstein was a US financier who was convicted of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution in 2008.

He was arrested on July 6, 2019 for sex trafficking minors in Florida and New York.

Court documents allege that at least 40 underage girls were brought to Epstein’s mansions for sexual encounters.

He pleaded not guilty to child sex trafficking charges in New York and could have faced 45 years in prison if found guilty.

Epstein killed himself on August 10 while awaiting trial.
