One of the prison guards arrested in connection with their actions the night politically-connected pedophile Jeffrey Epstein died in prison is ready to cooperate with investigators.
Tova Noel and Michael Thomas were charged with conspiracy and filing false records earlier this week, over three months after Epstein was allowed to avert an active suicide watch and died in controversial fashion.
Now, Noel is ready to sing. But sing about what is still anybody’s guess.
“Ms. Noel remains available to fully and truthfully cooperate with the Inspector General’s investigation, which is also geared toward uncovering the many problems that existed from the commencement of her employment [and] which continue to plague the Metropolitan Correctional Center,” her defense lawyer said in a statement.
Neither Noel, nor her lawyer, have explained just what kind of ‘cooperation’ would be involved.
“He should’ve been under 24-hour guard, and I expect that heads will roll in the federal prison system for this lax in proper security,” legal analyst @PaulCallan says after Jeffrey Epstein died by suicide, according to sources. https://t.co/YfUuYB6WtF pic.twitter.com/sjZFIPXYYs

Spill on Epstein’s Suicide?
Noel and Thomas are accused of both manipulating ‘count slips’ and allowing Epstein to go unsupervised for hours, eventually finding him hanging in his cell. They pled not guilty.
How he got there has been the topic of speculation for months now, even resulting in a social media meme announcing “Epstein didn’t kill himself.”
Dr. Michael Baden, a forensic pathologist who has worked on numerous high-profile cases, has stated publicly that Epstein’s death was not a suicide. Baden revealed that medical evidence – particularly some suspect broken bones – points to Epstein’s death being more consistent with homicide.
“Hanging does not cause these broken bones and homicide does,” Baden stated definitively. “A huge amount of pressure was applied.”

Other Issues With Epstein’s Death
There are several other factors about the night Epstein died that Noel might be able to shed some light on.
Baden, for example, noted the numerous extenuating circumstance revolving around Epstein’s death – including multiple malfunctioning cameras and initial claims that the guards fell asleep at the same time.
“Occasionally a guard falls asleep — never two guards at the same time,” he told Fox. “The issue would be, did somebody come in and cause his death?”
A New York Post report states that Noel was “goofing off” while Epstein was left unguarded.
The case has given rise to numerous conspiracy theories based on the circumstances and the high-profile connections Epstein had.
Christine Pelosi, a DNC official, and daughter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned Democrats in July that the sex-trafficking case against Epstein could implicate “some of our faves.”
And an analysis by Fox News in 2016 showed former President Bill Clinton traveled on Epstein’s jet, known as the “Lolita Express,” 26 separate times.
The FBI and DOJ investigations into Epstein’s suicide continue.
