Which suggests to me that they wanted the death to look suspicious. They are sending a message.
Maybe. But perhaps this is giving those who did it too much credit. They are arrogant, think they're in control, and at the same time desperate and stupid. This combination doesn't lead to subtle conspiracies, but to blatant violence. So my hunch is that what happened here is the obvious that everyone with half a neuron firing can recognize.
I will believe in some sort of triple-reverse-psychology conspiracy though if the mainstream media suddenly goes "The Clintons and the Israelis killed Epstein!" - but I'm not holding my breath :)
