Why was Jeffrey Epstein’s death on 4chan before it became public?

By Jackie Salo and Tina Moore

Before The Post broke the news of Jeffrey Epstein’s death, it was posted to online message board 4chan — prompting the FDNY to probe whether one of its paramedics leaked the details.

The user made a series of six posts beginning at 8:16 a.m. Saturday — around 40 minutes before news of the convicted pedophile’s death broke.

“[D]ont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this,” the first post reads.

The messages included unconfirmed details about the aid first responders rendered.

“Pt transported to Lower Manhattan ER and worked for 20 minutes and called,” said one message posted at 8:47 a.m. Saturday said.

Other 4chan users were quick to question the source of the information.

“You are either a cop or EMS,” replied a user.
