2 guards suspended and warden reassigned after Epstein death

Both guards were working overtime shifts.

Mr Barr said on Saturday that he had asked the Justice Department's inspector-general to investigate Mr Epstein's death. At the time of his death, he was being held without bail and faced up to 45 years in prison on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges unsealed last month.

The New York City medical examiner said that an autopsy had been completed on Epstein on Sunday but that a determination on the cause of death was still pending.

President Trump recently defended his retweet alleging late financier Jeffrey Epstein could have been killed.

The New York Times reported that although Epstein had been taken off suicide watch, officials were supposed to check on him every 30 minutes, but failed to do so. According to one report, those included the failure of guards on duty - only one of whom is believed to have been a full-fledged corrections officer - to regularly check on him. "It was inevitable. Our staff is severely overworked". Her current location is unknown.

Epstein's removal from suicide watch and his subsequent transfer to a different cell with a different cellmate came after a request from his attorneys, with whom he had been meeting for up to 12 hours a day, the Wall Street Journal reported.

On Monday, two French government ministers also called for an investigation into Epstein, saying a U.S. probe into the accused child sex trafficker had revealed links between Epstein and France.

The 66-year-old was arrested on July 6 and had pleaded not guilty to federal charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14. "He's doing a full investigation". "He never told me what favors they were". Both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department's inspector general are investigating Epstein's death.

The suicide of multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein has raised many questions and brings attention to what employees say is a broad problem.

Epstein's death, the result of an apparent suicide, shows "deficiencies in inmate protocol and has allowed the deceased to ultimately evade facing justice", wrote House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and ranking member Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., in a letter to BOP.

Lavine now theorizes that someone may have been paid to provide the means for Epstein's apparent suicide, which followed the release of court documents the day before revealing accusations that a woman was forced to have sex with world leaders, leading businessmen and other powerful men in Epstein's circle.

But investigators have learned those checks weren't done for several hours before Epstein was found, according to one of the people familiar with the episode.

Born and raised in New York, Epstein worked as a maths and physics teacher in the mid 1970s before moving into finance, creating his own firm: J Epstein and Co.

Mr Barr, the top United States law enforcement official, vowed to carry on the case against anyone complicit with Mr Epstein.

Federal prosecutors in NY are pursuing a parallel investigation into whether any associates of Epstein will face charges for assisting him in what authorities say was his rampant sexual abuse of teenage girls. A police search of the property found photos of girls throughout the property. It also shields several of his associates from prosecution. He served 13 months in prison.
