News reports Epstein "was in his cell but not on suicide watch at the time of his death".

As an inmate in the Special Housing Unit at MCC, Epstein should have been checked on by a correctional officer every 30 minutes, according to Bureau of Prison protocols. Bazerman once served as the head psychologist at the prison were Epstein died.

Epstein's death came one day after a NY court released a tranche of sealed legal documents, providing new details about what prosecutors allege was Epstein's sex-trafficking operation.

Epstein, a convicted pedophile who befriended numerous politicians and celebrities over the years, was found unresponsive in his cell around 6:30 a.m.at the Metropolitan Correctional Center from "an apparent suicide", the Department of Justice said. Prosecutors said he sexually abused dozens of young girls in his NY and Florida residences between 2002 and 2005, to which Epstein pleaded not guilty.

His death comes a month after he allegedly attempted suicide in the same facility.

For them to pull him off suicide watch is shocking. "Usually, for most people, it's about 48 to 76 hours or so". Prosecutors accused him of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls.

Hours after Epstein's death Saturday, as the hashtag #EpsteinMurder was trending worldwide on Twitter, the president joined Twitter speculation around Epstein's death while under the federal government's watch.

Attorney Jack Scarola represents some of Epstein's victims.

A number of lawmakers have called for congressional investigations or probes into Epstein's death and his previous plea deal. For someone this high-profile, with these allegations and this many victims, who has had a suicide attempt in the last few weeks, you can take absolutely no chances. One was working a mandatory overtime shift.

"It has deprived them of the opportunity that existed to hold him appropriately responsible for all of his crimes".

"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".

Julie K. Brown, the Herald investigative reporter whose reporting led to the case being reopened, said she was surprised at Epstein's death. Other details were not immediately released.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons declined to comment Sunday.

Additionally, Epstein was supposed to have a cellmate.

Brad Edwards, another for attorney for victims says, "It is never too late to come forward with information". Epstein had been kept in this same extra-security area of the prison, a New York Times source said.

It's now unclear as to why Epstein's cellmate was transferred out, or why guards were unable to check in on Epstein every half-hour as they were instructed.

The FBI is investigating the incident. The Federal Bureau of Prisons and Attorney General Bill Barr said Epstein died in an "apparent suicide" while in federal custody.

Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY, announced investigators will continue to pursue the case despite Epstein's death. WPTV uncovered that Epstein was allowed to visit him home at least nine times while on work release at the Palm Beach County jail.

"My office defers to the involved law enforcement agencies regarding other investigations around this death", Sampson said. That investigation will continue despite Epstein's death, according to FDLE.
