Jeffrey Epstein’s body was claimed 5 days ago. As reported. By his brother, Mark Epstein. Surely this man would have made burial/final arrangements for his brother almost immediately upon learning of his death?- Scroll down for more information regarding funeral arrangements.
August 15/2019- Jeffrey Epstein's Body Claimed
"The body of Jeffrey Epstein has been claimed by an unknown and unnamed “associate” and taken from the New York City medical examiner’s office, a new report claims"August 16/19: Jeffrey Epstein's Brother Mark Claimed Body
"Jeffrey Epstein’s body was claimed from the New York City medical examiner’s office by his brother Mark EpsteinAbout that burial? One would think that should have already been taken care of ?
It is not immediately clear where Mark Epstein had his brother’s body transferred or if it has been buried."
Yet...not a word in the media about it? Why? Surely given the coverage this story has gotten there would be interest? Money to be made? Scoops to be had?
Instead the media continues on with more titillation about Prince Andrew? Nothing new about Prince Andrew and Epstein. Covered there intersection years ago here at the blog. Seriously. Nothing. Their connections were covered in 2011, 8 years ago, here at PFYT.
Let’s talk about burial arrangements?
“Jewish burials happen within one to three days and Epstein’s corpse awaits a second, independent autopsy” (second independent autopsy?)Jewish burials happen within one to three days. Mark Epstein claimed his brother’s body 5 days ago. So we are told. It seems to me that burial and it’s required service would have, should have already, taken place?
"The MCC (Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan) has a chaplaincy program, which has had rabbis from various denominations over the years. When reached by the Forward, Rabbi Jacob Hoenig, a chaplain at MCC in recent years, declined to comment.All the places Epstein's brother might have contacted to make arrangements were never contacted. Curious?
Isaac Pollak, head of the chevra kadisha on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, where Epstein lived in New York, said his group would have performed the traditional rites for Epstein, but he had not been contacted by any synagogue in the area regarding Epstein’s remains.
“We work with everybody who wants to meet their maker in the traditional way,” he said.
Two of the largest Jewish funeral homes in Manhattan, Riverside Memorial Chapel and the Plaza Jewish Community Chapel, said they have not been contacted about receiving Epstein’s remains. The Hebrew Free Burial Association, which arranges burials for Jewish inmates who do not have family to receive their body, also said they have not been contacted.
Epstein’s parents are buried in a small cemetery west of Fort Lauderdale, just across the highway from the Florida Everglades, called Menorah Gardens and Memorial Chapel. A representative for Menorah Gardens who declined to give their full name said that they had not been contacted by the Epstein family about his remains
Most Jewish sources, including the Chabad movement of Orthodox Judaism and the more lenient Reform movement, say that although suicide is against Jewish law, those who die by suicide can still be buried in Jewish cemeteries"
Epstein set up a trust just two days before his alleged death
Jeffrey Epstein put assets in trust two days before suicide, says report- There are no beneficiaries.
"On August 8, he signed a last will and testament filed in the Virgin Islands, where he owned a private island, transferring his wealth into “The 1953 Trust,” the Post reported.
It posted a copy of the will online showing that Epstein claimed he had more than USD 56.5 million in cash, equities of over USD 300 million as well as a fixed income of more than USD 14 million.
Epstein also listed six luxury properties, including in New York, Florida and Paris and more than USD 18 million in “aviation assets, automobiles and boats,” the Post added.
The document did not name any listed beneficiaries."
“It’s pretty boilerplate — it’s what we call a ‘pour-over will,’ which means everything pours over to a trust,” a city estate lawyer told The Post. “It’s done that way for privacy reasons"Jeffrey Epstein was born January 20, 1953.
I question who it is that can access the funds in “The 1953 Trust” ??
