I have a story for you... [View all]

I'm not going to name names but if you Google "Philadelphia dentist found shot in burning car" you might come up with something...

Quite a few years ago there was this dentist who practiced in Center City Philly, right down the street from me. He was out and had been for years even when he was in dental school (and was a student with whom I'd come into contact on numerous occasions). He an his office like a continuous party, had all kinds of goings-on, treated not a few Philly-celebrities in other words, relatively minor characters but because this is a Village, they are "hot-shots" and generally was known as a party animal and somewhat eccentric, e.g. he would hire a limo to drive him a few blocks - this was long before Uber and Lyft.

Anyway, he used to hold these big parties in his home and invite many many of his patients, some of whom were politicos and business people as well as some who skated, shall we say, on the shady side of existence, but here as elsewhere, these people hobnob with the politicians for obvious and not so obvious reasons. These parties I was made to understand were WILD, and all kinds of behaviors and conversations abounded. IT was revealed that he had surreptitiously recorded audio and perhaps video of these parties and people were aghast and afraid.

Not long thereafter, I was driving to work early one morning and heard that not far from me, they had found this gentleman shot dead in the front seat of his car which had then been torched. Law enforcement hunted around for a while and then it got quiet after a few leads were dismissed. The incident has never been mentioned, written about, or discussed again in the media.

I believe that he has recorded the "wrong people" which led to his demise. I recalled hearing that at his last party, attended by not a few of my patients, the mayor, some state politicians, a City Council Rep or two, and a member of the US House, now deceased as well as some CEO's of middle level companies. You get the idea. One can only imagine what is discussed among these folks, to say nothing of the sexual banter/behavior that took place upstairs.

So when I heard that Mr J. Epstein had departed this mortal coil, I was not in the least surprised. He had the goods on everyone of prominence and thus he, in the immortal words of Ian Fleming haveing written in the book Goldfinger, "...had to be hit." Knowledge may be power, but too much knowledge is death.
