U.S. prisons chief removed after cell death of sex accused Jeffrey Epstein

Inquiry into Epstein's death, time in prison continues

Inquiry into Epstein's death, time in prison continues

"I am pleased to welcome back Dr. Hawk Sawyer as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons".

His lawyers had said in a statement last week that they were "not satisfied" with the medical examiner's conclusions and planned to carry out their own investigation, seeking prison videos taken around the time of his death.

"Attorney General William Barr blasted corrections officials on Monday for what he described as "serious irregularities" at the NY federal prison where financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead".

"During this critical juncture, I am confident Dr. Hawk Sawyer and Dr. Kane will lead BOP with the competence, skill, and resourcefulness they have embodied throughout their government career", Barr said in a statement.

The leadership announcement comes at a moment of crisis for the BOP, following the suicide death of Epstein in the Manhattan's Metropolitan Correctional Center more than a week ago.

Attorney General William Barr removed the acting head of the Bureau of Prisons, the Justice Department said Monday, replacing the agency's top official in the wake of the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein earlier this month.

"Because Jeffrey Epstein, the defendant, died while this case was pending, and therefore before a final judgment was issued, the Indictment must be dismissed under the rule of abatement", the prosecutors wrote, citing the 1998 court decision in United States v. Wright. The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are conducting investigations over his death.

Kathleen Hawk Sawyer was appointed to be the director of the bureau and Thomas Kane as the deputy, the Department of Justice announced in a statement on Monday.

He ordered bureau last Tuesday to temporarily reassign the warden, Lamine N'Diaye, to a regional office and the two guards who were supposed to be watching Epstein were placed on administrative leave. "Additional actions may be taken as the circumstances warrant", Kupec wrote, without identifying the staff members.

Attorney General William Barr speaks at a press conference in New Orleans, Aug. 12, 2019.

"We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability". Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. "Jeffrey Epstein should still be in a padded cell and under constant surveillance, but the justice system has failed Epstein's victims at every turn". But he was taken off that watch at the end of July and returned to the jail's special housing unit.

Disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein's will has been filed in the U.S. Virgin Islands and it reportedly showed that he signed it on August 8 - two days before investigators said he hanged himself in his New York City jail cell.
