The billionaire sex offender was found dead in his cell on Saturday morning at the Metropolitan correctional center (MCC) in lower Manhattan.

The New York City Fire Department looked into whether a first responder posted about Jeffrey Epstein's death on a notorious internet message board prior to officials announcing it to the public, BuzzFeed News has learned.

If it was a medical professional who shared the information, the post would be a major violation of ethics and medical privacy laws.

Buzzfeed News reports that after other 4chan users urged the author of the post to disseminate more information to verify its authenticity, the author delineated the alleged tactics that were used after Epstein's suicide attempt to resuscitate him.

In a conversation with Buzzfeed News, Frank Dwyer, a Deputy Commissioner for FDNY, stated that an investigation found that the information on 4chan had not come from a member of the FDNY.

Two prison guards assigned to watch Jeffrey Epstein on the night he died have been placed on leave and the jail warden has been reassigned as authorities investigate the financier's death, the Justice Department said.

Less than 40 minutes before ABC News first reported Epstein's death on Twitter, someone posted still-unverified details on 4chan, the anonymous message board popular with far-right trolls and white nationalists.

"This sounds like standard American Heart Association guidelines, which most EMS agencies use", said Wesley. The spokesperson did not elaborate on how that determination was made.

Alongside the FDNY, the union for EMT workers in NY, claimed that "our members do not release this type of confidential information, this looks like a 3rd party info". He concluded, "There's serious consequences for those violations". It was a full 38 minutes before the first reporter, ABC's Aaron Katersky, Tweeted the news.

The new of Epsteins death followed revelations that the pedophile had a vast social circle of celebrities, politicians, and royalty.

All have denied that they knew anything regarding his criminal behaviour, but the 4chan post has given new life to conspiracy theories.
