The suicide of alleged sex offender Jeffrey Epstein continues to mystify the nation, and how the 66-year-old was able to kill himself while incarcerated at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in NY is now under FBI investigation, and U.S. Attorney General William Barr has opened up an official probe into the case. The source said that Epstein's cellmate was transferred and that guards were guided by protocol to check on Epstein every 30 minutes but failed to check for most of the night.

Berkeley Heights, New Jersey (CNN)President Donald Trump on Saturday promoted a conspiracy theory linking the Clinton family to the death of multimillionaire and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, the latest instance of Trump propagating baseless conspiracy theories and falsehoods. The source also said that at the facility two jail guards are required to check on all inmates every 30 minutes.

The statement said it was "fundamental" to launch an investigation in France so that his death "doesn't deprive the victims of the justice they deserve" and to protect other girls from "this kind of predator". The Bureau of Prisons dropped the ball.

A source told Reuters that the financier wasn't on suicide watch at the time of his death.

The New York City medical examiner's office hasn't determined his manner of death. Barr said in a statement he was "appalled" at hearing the news and said it raised "serious questions that must be answered".

Our sources say. despite being taken off suicide watch, there was concern for Epstein's safety in the Special Housing Unit - the SHU - and he was supposed to be watched around the clock.

Epstein had been denied bail and faced up to 45 years behind bars on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges unsealed last month.

An investigation must take place to determine how Epstein was able to die while in federal custody.

Sampson said having a private pathologist observe an autopsy is a routine practice. This allowed Epstein to plead guilty to Florida state charges of procuring a minor for prostitution, for which he served 13 months in jail.

Federal prosecutors in NY reopened the probe after investigative reporting by The Miami Herald stirred outrage over that plea bargain. "They've been looking for justice for many, many years", she said on Fox News Sunday.

"There's so many avenues that have yet to be investigated ... not only on Epstein himself and the crimes he committed - and what other people might have helped him do and other co-conspirators involved in this - but also on how this whole thing happened back in 2008 and why it happened, and whether there's any corruption there to look at", Brown said.
