Speaking to PIX11's Dan Mannarino Sunday, Northeast Regional Vice President Darrell Palmer, from the Council of Prison Locals (CPL33) union, said there was proper staffing in the area where Epstein was being held. Lawmakers are also calling for a congressional investigation of the details surrounding his death.

Correctional officers at the New York City prison housing Jeffrey Epstein didn't check in on him for hours leading up to his apparent suicide on Saturday after his cellmate was transferred for reasons that were not immediately clear, according to a report. It declined to comment further.

Berkeley Heights, New Jersey (CNN)President Donald Trump on Saturday promoted a conspiracy theory linking the Clinton family to the death of multimillionaire and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, the latest instance of Trump propagating baseless conspiracy theories and falsehoods. "This is routine practice", she said, adding that federal prosecutors were aware of Baden's attendance.

The jail staff failed to follow protocols leading up to Epstein's death, according to a report from The New York Times, deepening the fallout from what led to the highly connected financier's apparent suicide. It remains unclear why Epstein was taken off the watch.

Other Epstein theories floating online have been darker, especially after Epstein was found injured on the floor of his cell last month with bruises on his neck.

Moreover, inmates at MCC are said to be checked-in-on every 30 minutes throughout the night.

Epstein's death raises questions about how the Bureau of Prisons ensures the welfare of such high-profile inmates.

The indictment alleged that, from 2002 to 2005, Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls by paying them to engage in sexual activity.

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

Previously Mr Epstein was living under 24-hour guard in his NY home, but last month a judge denied him bail. "To those courageous young women who have already come forward and to the many others who have yet to do so, let me reiterate that we remain committed to standing for you, and our investigation of the conduct charged in the Indictment - which included a conspiracy count - remains ongoing'".

On Friday, more than 2,000 pages of documents were released related to a since-settled lawsuit against Epstein's ex-girlfriend by Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein's accusers. The records named some powerful men who were allegedly involved in Epstein's trafficking ring.

No foul play is suspected in Epstein's death, a federal official told CNN Saturday.

Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) on August 10 called for the House Committee on Oversight and Reform to "begin its investigation" into why Epstein got a lenient plea deal in 2008 when he was sentenced to 13 months and was allowed to work from his Palm Beach office. Williams alleged that for Epstein to die by suicide indicated "somebody not doing their job, or somebody got paid not to do - not to do their job, so somebody can get knocked off, so information don't come out" and compared it with to the 1994 suicide of White House aide Vince Foster that conspiracy theorists have long blamed on the Clintons.

"I still hold our confidence that with the focus of public attention that has now fallen on this case, there will be a continued investigation of everyone against whom accusations have been made of involvement with Epstein".

In October, Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger was killed in a federal prison in West Virginia where had just been transferred.

In a similar fashion, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said answers were needed, with Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) agreeing with her on Twitter.
