US artist spray paints slogan on gates of Jeffrey Epstein's Palm Beach home

A US artist and filmmaker made a trip to Palm Beach where he spray-painted a slogan on the gates of the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein's home.

Footage from December 10 shows Rod Webber writing on the gates, "EPSTAIN[sic] DIDN'T KILL HIMSELF".

Webber deliberately misspelt Epstein's name and has called the artwork "A Stain On Us All".

Webber had previously vandalised the gallery space that once held the $120,000 banana taped to a wall at Art Basel with "Epstein Didn't Kill Himself".

The former financier Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for sex trafficking earlier this year on July 6 but was remanded in custody at New York Metropolitan Correctional Center until August 10 when he was found dead in his cell.

It has been widely speculated online that Epstein was murdered rather than the official verdict of suicide by hanging.
