Well, the Epstein case continues to out-weird itself with the news that his will was witnessed by the lawyer of notorious drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán.
The bizarre post-death life of Jeffrey Epstein continues to spool beyond comprehension. In the days after the release of the official autopsy report (which ruled that Epstein committed suicide, one that the Epstein camp is purportedly unhappy about), things have taken rather a rather noticeable left turn.
According to The New York Daily News, the “multimillionaire pervert” signed a $577 million will two days before his death. According to The News, Epstein placed everything he had into a simple trust, with everything passed over to the “acting Trustees of The 1953 Trust.”
The same publication noted that “Epstein’s will did not shed much new light on his fortune. He declared that his residences in the Upper East Side, Palm Beach, Fla., Stanley, N.M., Paris, France, and two islands in the Virgin Islands were worth $180,603,063. He had $56 million in cash, according to the will. His collection of planes, boats and cars were worth $18,551,700. The value of his art collection had not yet been determined, according to the will. Meanwhile, an Epstein accuser, Alicia Arden, said that authorities’ mishandled allegations against the wealthy perv as far as back as the 1990s.”

Now, this could indicate that he knew he was going to commit suicide, or on the other side of the argument, did so because he felt he would soon be murdered. Either or, but that’s not the odd part.
One the lawyers who witnessed Epstein signing the will is also an attorney for Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán. Mariel Colón Miró is the lawyer in question and confirmed her signature to The New York Daily News.
“Yes of course, that is my signature. I was a witness,” Colón Miró said Monday.
“I can’t divulge more about my involvement. I can only confirm I was a witness,” she said. “At the moment, I have no other comment. There’s an investigation.”
What we don’t know, is the legitimacy of this alleged will, or who the trustees happen to be. Hopefully, we’ll get the details…you know, as soon as they’re done with El Chapo.
