Two Jail Workers Arrested For Failure To Check On Jeffrey Epstein: Report

Shelby Talcott on November 19, 2019

Authorities arrested two jail workers who were on duty the night Jeffrey Epstein died on charges Tuesday morning related to allegedly failing to check on him, a person with knowledge of the matter reportedly said.

Epstein, arrested on child sex trafficking charges in July, died of an apparent suicide Aug. 10 in a Manhattan jail cell. The federal Bureau of Prisons employees came under fire after Epstein’s death because they failed to adequately monitor the prison where he was being held, The New York Times reported.

The employees, whose names have not been released, are expected to be charged later Tuesday morning in Manhattan.

During the night Epstein died, the workers fell asleep and then falsified records to cover it up, several officials with knowledge of the matter said, according to The NYT. They were supposed to check on Epstein every half-hour.

It was previously reported that the two workers would likely face criminal charges. Sources said that they would be charged with falsifying prison records, The Associated Press reported Monday. Despite a medical examiner ruling Epstein’s death a suicide by hanging, many have doubts and believe the disgraced millionaire may have been murdered.

  • If this was a 'hit' as it appears to be, they are not likely to testify to that. Their families' lives are at stake. That's how the mob rolls.

    It's no secret the Clintons have been working with criminal cartels (mainly cocaine and technology smuggling), that Nancy Pelosi's family are mafia (look that one up), that Obama diverted a bunch of guns to the Sinaloa Cartel that controls the drug trade in his home turf, Chicago...
