He added, “I believe he killed himself as a result of he didn’t wish to spend the remainder of his life in jail. He did a cost-benefit evaluation and thought he’d be higher off lifeless.”

Dershowitz advised us he believes the fault lies with the Bureau of Prisons.

“There ought to be an intensive investigation . . . He by no means ought to have been taken off of suicide watch,” he advised us.
