The news of Jeffrey Epstein's death was leaked on the internet over half an hour before ABC News reported it.
According to Gizmodo, alleged details of Epstein's death appeared on the anonymous message board 4Chan at 8:16 am.
“dont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this".
The post was initially met with skepticism on the site, which hosts subsections known for its affiliations with Trump.
