I detect a moderate amount of sarcasm eminating from your post, but...

0) It wasn't solitary confinement. He was in a cell WITH A CELLMATE. That is. until the cellmate was transferred the night prior to Epstien's arkancide.

1) He couldn't have hanged himself because there's nothing to secure the noose to.

2) Sheets and clothes are specifically designed not to support the weight of an average person in a hanging situation. Epstien weighed in excess of 200 pounds (havier than an "average person").

3) Nobody has come out and actually said they found him hanging from a noose. He was merely found "unresponsive".

4) There are reports (from whom, I do not know) that they heard shreaks and screams coming from his cell. Since his cellmate had been transferred, only once person could have been doing that. I suspect that most folks that hange themselves can't really make any noises loud enougfh to be heard more than a few feet away.

5) Guards were sleeping on watch.

6) Cameras were conveniently "down for maintenance".

The warden has been reassigned (just moving the problem somewhere else), and two guards have been suspended (?, with/without pay?). No actions will apparently be taken against the cameras.
