Epstein's guards worked extreme OT shifts morning of death

Jeffrey Epstein's New York jail had 'serious irregularities', US Attorney-General says 'Killer cop' inmate says he heard nothing on morning of Jeffrey Epstein's death

He also poured scorn on the fact that Epstein reportedly was not found for hours after taking his own life.

"The actions taken today by the attorney general are typical to protect the integrity of investigations until any formal action, if any, is warranted". He was placed on suicide watch last month after he was found on the floor of his cell with bruises on his neck, but he was later returned to the jail's special housing unit for inmates needing close supervision.

Epstein was being held without bail, awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges that could have brought 45 years in prison.

President Trump went on to say the controversy around Epstein's sex-trafficking ring has lingered for a long time, and he hopes the Department of Justice can finally get to the bottom of it.

The department did not name the warden who was reassigned, but sources familiar with the matter identified him as Lamine N'Diaye, who formerly was in charge of the Bureau of Prisons office of internal affairs. Corrections officers attempted to revive him while saying "breathe, Epstein, breathe".

"We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility", said Barr, who is responsible for federal prisons.

Wexner recently hired white-collar defense lawyer Mary Jo White, a partner at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP and former US attorney in Manhattan, according to a person familiar with the matter, as scrutiny of Epstein's finances intensifies.

The 66-year-old financier had been on suicide watch, but a source familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity said he was not on watch at the time of his death.

Both guards were working overtime shifts.

Epstein's arrest drew national attention, particularly focusing on a deal that allowed Epstein to plead guilty in 2008 to soliciting a minor for prostitution in Florida and avoid more serious federal charges.

Maxwell is said to be Epstein's ex-girlfriend turned business associate. "The victims deserve justice and they will get it".

After Epstein's suicide in NY on Saturday, it is impossible to pursue a criminal case against him directly.

Before his downfall, Epstein had previously counted many prominent rich and powerful people, including Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, as friends. But typically such a request from a defense attorney would still need the jail's warden and members of the psychology staff to give their consent, and it remained unclear Tuesday who approved of the Epstein watch downgrade. Some observers familiar with inmate movements speculated the man may have been taken out of the cell in advance of a court appearance or other appointment, but, either way, he was not replaced, as was supposed to happen, the Wall Street Journal reported.

A determination on the cause of death 'is pending further information at this time, ' Sampson said in a statement. In the federal system, suicides are rarer.

This story has been corrected to show Epstein was found unresponsive Saturday morning, not Saturday night.

Additionally, Serene Gregg, president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 3148, tells The Washington Post that one of the guards assigned to Epstein's unit wasn't a correctional officer, but a fill-in who had been pressed into service.

Sisak reported from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Balsamo from Savannah, Georgia.
