Top US Lawmaker Demands Answers in Jeffrey Epstein's Death

'SERIOUS IRREGULARITIES': Attorney General Vows Full Investigation into Jeffrey Epstein's Death in Custody ‘Serious irregularities’ in Epstein suicide, says US attorney general

U.S. Attorney General William Barr has ordered immediate changes in leadership at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in NY following Jeffrey Epstein's death.

According to the Washington Post, citing a prison union official, Epstein feared Tartaglione, although Barket said that the two got along well and both complained of conditions inside the Metropolitan Correctional Center in NY, where they were housed.

Epstein, 66, was found dead in his cell on Saturday morning and the FBI and Justice Department are conducting an investigation into his death, which has been classified as an apparent suicide. "He vowed a full investigation by the FBI and the Justice Department inspector general", reports Fox News.

"Let me assure you that this case will continue", Barr said. "Any co-conspirators should not rest easy".

Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found a little over two weeks ago with bruising on his neck, according to a person familiar with the matter who wasn't authorized to discuss it publicly.

Epstein, who was being held at the jail without bail, was found unresponsive in his cell around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, the Bureau of Prisons said.

According to prosecutors, Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage teens, some as young as 14, at his homes in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Florida, between 2002 and 2005.

He added that investigating Epstein's dealings is a top priority of the Justice Department.

Revelations that Epstein was left unsupervised and without a cellmate after an apparent suicide attempt in July has also raised questions.

Attorney General William Barr has called for an investigation.

Kellen, who is among four women named in the non-prosecution agreement, would allegedly greet girls arriving at the mansion and escort them to a room with a massage table where Epstein would be waiting, wearing only a towel.

President Donald Trump doubled down on Tuesday when asked about his promotion of unsubstantiated conspiracy theories in the wake of Jeffrey Epstein's suicide.

His side of the deal saw him agree to plead guilty to a state-level charges of solicitation of prostitution and procurement of minors for prostitution.

There is also continued mystery around the results of Epstein's recent autopsy.

Dana Gottesfeld's husband Martin, who is serving a 10-year sentence for hacking, has spent three months in New York's Metropolitan Correctional Center and has even drawn a picture of the special unit Epstein was imprisoned in.

According to NYT, this is part of a larger problem where jails are understaffed with correctional officers, and support staff are often put into these positions with minimal training.

The administrative moves took place amid official investigations into Epstein's death and following harsh official criticism of the Bureau of Prisons.

Bradley J. Edwards, attorney for Epstein accusers Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2, submitted a statement to the United States district court in southern Florida on Monday seeking to cancel the remaining provisions of the deal. A private pathologist, Michael Baden, who previously served as the city's chief medical examiner, observed the examination at the request of representatives of Epstein, which is routine practice, Sampson said. He said it appears to him that the Bureau of Prisons is "protecting him and putting the blame on officers".
