The jail where Jeffrey Epstein apparently hanged himself was a cesspool of corruption in the ’90s, according to one of late mobster John Gotti Sr.’s top associates — who insists The Correctional Center, in New York, is still a place where almost anything can be bought if you have the money.
“If he [Epstein] killed himself someone had to have helped him,” said Lewis Kasman, a one time close confidant of the Dapper Don who visited the infamous godfather many times at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in 1992.
“There are cameras going 24/7 and they’re watching 24/7. Someone had to give [Epstein] the equipment to kill himself and he had to pay for it dearly,” said Kasman, who has kept abreast of conditions in the lockup.
Kasman added: “That facility for years had issues of corruption, with correction officers bringing in food or cellphones for wealthy people.”
The New York Post reports that the former Gambino bean counter noted that mobster John Gotti, who did time both in the jail’s 9 South and 10 South units, its most secure wings, still managed to get his favorite steak dinner sneaked in: “He had Peter Luger’s whenever he wanted.”
Kasman said he heard US Attorney General William Barr personally made a hush-hush trip to the MCC two weeks ago, about the time Epstein was found in his cell with bruises around his neck.
“When does that happen?” he asked. “The attorney general never visits jails. Something’s not right there.”
Kasman said the facility was “totally disgusting — worse than Guantanamo Bay.”
“There are roaches crawling all over you — in every orifice — when you sleep. The Bureau of Prisons’ answer to that is that they can’t spray. It’s toxic.”
Reps for the jail have not responded to requests for comment thus yet.
