Jeffrey Epstein Received Death Threats and Should Have Had 24/7 Surveillance

Bill Barr Allegedly Made Secret Visit to Jail Before Epstein's Death: 'Something's Not Right There'

Atty. Gen. William P. Barr said Monday the Justice Department has already found "serious irregularities" at the Manhattan jail where Jeffrey Epstein was being held, adding that the facility "failed to adequately secure this prisoner".

After he was taken off the watch at the end of July, Epstein was put on "special observation status", which meant that guards were supposed to check on him 30 minutes, the report said.

The Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City was housing Jeffrey Epstein when he apparently committed suicide Saturday. The source also said that at the facility two jail guards are required to check on all inmates every 30 minutes.

Clinton spokesman Angel UreƱa said the former president "knows nothing about the awful crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in NY".

"Mr. Epstein's death raises serious questions that must be answered", America's top law enforcement official wrote in a statement.

Although an autopsy was performed Sunday, we're told one reason the conclusion was deferred is because the Medical Examiner must say whether death was a suicide or at the hands of another. On July 24, Epstein was reportedly found injured and semi-conscious in his prison cell with marks on his neck.

Jeffrey Epstein looks on near his lawyer Martin Weinberg and Judge Richard Berman during a status hearing in his sex trafficking case, in this court sketch in NY on July 31, 2019. He was facing up to 45 years in prison on federal sex trafficking charges. He had pleaded not guilty and was awaiting trial.

The billionaire was facing sex trafficking charges and had recently been taken off suicide watch, a person familiar with the matter who wasn't authorized to discuss it publicly told The Associated Press.

"This is routine practice", Sampson said.

Baden was the city's chief medical examiner in the late 1970s and has been called as an expert witness in high-profile cases including by the defense at O.J. Simpson's 1994 murder trial.

The indictment alleged that, from 2002 to 2005, Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls by paying them to engage in sexual activity. What is clear is that Epstein's cellmate was removed just hours before his death, a fact that Fox News and the Wall Street Journal have reported.
