Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Wednesday that police told him that the 911 calls related to Jeffrey Epstein’s death were no longer available.

Carlson made the claims while giving an update on his team’s efforts to look into the death of Epstein, a convicted pedophile known for his connections to the wealthy. His death in August 2019 was officially ruled a suicide by New York City authorities. 

“We also thought it would be worth reaching out to the NYPD. We wanted to know what was said in any 911 calls from the federal lockup in New York on the day that Epstein was found dead,” Carlson said. “We can’t play that 911 call for you because it’s been deleted.”

He said NYPD told him this was because the documentation was “well past the 12 month retention period.” The Daily Wire has contacted the NYPD inquiring whether any relevant calls had been deleted and if any were available. 

“It looks like the NYPD deleted the recordings of 911 calls from the jail,” Carlson said, adding that his team had also reached out to the FBI to ask if they had any calls but received no response. 

Epstein’s death quickly became controversial as many believe his trial would have exposed the crimes of powerful global elites he had leveraged through his sex trafficking operation. As a result, the circumstances leading up to his death have been heavily scrutinized. 

Contrary to protocol, Epstein was not checked on every 30 minutes the night of his death at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, where he was being detained, sources told multiple news outlets. Some of the footage captured near Epstein’s cell was also unusable, according to The Washington Post, though other footage was available for review. The FBI later opened an investigation into the camera malfunction outside Epstein’s jail cell. 


A lawyer who would have represented Epstein said that he did not believe that it would be likely for the financier to commit suicide.

“I was told that on August 9, Mr. Epstein remained animated and gave every indication he was planning to fight the case vigorously as we had discussed. On August 10, he was dead,” lawyer David Schoen told Newsweek. “So my first reason for believing it was not suicide is based simply on the anecdotal evidence from my own observations in meeting with him and from reports I received throughout the week.” 

According to Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson, the evidence led her to conclude that Epstein’s death was suicide “after careful review of all investigative information, including complete autopsy findings.”
