Guards Had Not Checked Epstein For Hours Before They Found Him Dead, One Guard Was Substitute

Mary Margaret Olohan on August 12, 2019

Neither guard guarding Jeffrey Epstein had checked on the multi-millionaire for several hours before he was found dead, and one of these guards was not a full correction officer, according to The New York Times.

A prison official and two law enforcement officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity revealed more details about Epstein‘s death, according to The New York Times Monday.

Only one of the guards responsible for watching Epstein was a fully fledged correction officer, according to the New York Times. Meanwhile, Epstein was reportedly removed from suicide watch and put on “special observation status,” which meant that he was required to have a cellmate and that guards must check in on him every 30 minutes, according to the Wall Street Journal.

However, the anonymous prison official and two law enforcement officials said that no one had checked on Epstein for several hours and that his cellmate had been removed but not replaced, according to the Times.

“I was appalled and frankly angry to learn of the [jail’s] failure to adequately secure this prisoner,” Attorney General William Barr said at a Monday press conference in New Orleans.

“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation,” he said.

Epstein was accused of sexually exploiting girls as young as 14 in his homes in New York City and Florida and died of an apparent suicide Saturday morning.

“We will get to the bottom of what happened, and there will be accountability,” Barr said Monday, in addition to saying that officials would continue to investigate those involved with Epstein in the sexual abuse and exploitation of young girls according to WSJ.

His words came as FBI agents raided Epstein’s Virgin Island’s home Monday.

“Any co-conspirators should not rest easy,” Barr added. “The victims deserve justice, and they will get it.”

  • I'm sure any of the young girls that were used as prostitutes on that island are also worried about assisted suicide (Arkancide) because they know too much. Are the Clintons going to murder all of them too?

  • Exactly! That's why I said all the prostitutes used on that island should be worried. They could also be silenced.

  • That's exactly what I said. The coroner, if not on the Clinton payroll, should check for NEEDLE MARKS anywhere on his body. There is too much of a coincidence! This man was murdered!

  • That's a good thought! If they could find that out, that would be an absolute connection to the Clintons. I don't about you, but if I were either Bill or Hillary, I'd want to find my own private island. When the heat gets too hot, you get out of the kitchen!

  • Is the investigation all but over? Or... do they have the will to keep going? The most powerful among us, are the ones who are shaking in their boots. Be sure that they will do all they can to bring an end to this. Epstein's death is meant to scare off those who would keep digging into the world wide abomination that is child sex slavery. My money says that the investigation will end rather quickly now.

  • No surprise. Had to make it easy for someone to slip in, and hang him. Suspect he was dead before the hanging.

  • Arkancide on display....follow the paper trails.....arrest the others who were involved in this....but whomever is investigating this should have iron clad 24/7 tactical security with honest, ethical members on the details...
