Jeffrey Epstein's Private Caribbean Island Swarmed By FBI Agents

"We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and that demand a thorough investigation", Mr. Barr said. They called on federal authorities to investigate associates of Epstein for any role in his activities.

William Barr, the United States attorney general, said on Monday that "any co-conspirators should not rest easy".

US Attorney Geoffrey Berman vowed to continue the probe into the allegations against Epstein posthumously, giving his victims hope that they can still get justice.

Mr Epstein was on Saturday found unresponsive in his cell, where he was awaiting trial after being charged with sexual offences involving dozens of underage girls from at least 2002 to 2005. He had pleaded not guilty and was awaiting trial.

The Department of Justice announced the reassignment of the warden from the Metropolitan Correctional Center, where Jeffrey Epstein, the alleged sex trafficker was found dead from an apparent suicide, a DOJ official said.

Epstein was placed on suicide watch following the incident, but was taken off 11 days before his death. A private pathologist observed the examination, as well.

Epstein, 66, was charged on 8 July 2019 by the US Attorney for the Southern District of NY with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors.

The manner in which Epstein died remains a mystery, but guards on his unit were working extreme overtime shifts to make up for staffing shortages the morning of his apparent suicide, a person familiar with the jail's operations told The Associated Press.

Tartaglione was Epstein's cellmate at the Manhattan Correctional Center when the convicted pedophile was first found almost unconscious on the floor of his cell with injuries to his neck in July.

He was found hanged in his NY cell on Saturday.

In a statement provided to BBC News, the organisation's president Eric Young said prison employees who are not correctional officers - such as teachers, nurses, clerical workers - are often made to guard inmates due to a process known as "augmentation". Nadler and Collins wrote that they agree with Attorney General William Barr that there are "serious questions" about Epstein's death.

With Epstein gone, potential co-conspirators involved in his alleged sex-trafficking network are shifting into focus.

Democratic presidential candidates handed Trump a verbal smackdown for promoting theories about the death of the disgraced financier.

"We have to live with the scars of his actions for the rest of our lives, while he will never face the consequences of the crimes he committed, the pain and trauma he caused so many people", she said.

Epstein, 66, was facing federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges and was being held without bail at the federal facility where he died.

"The American investigation has turned up links with France", Equality Minister Marlene Schiappa said in a joint statement with French child welfare minister Adrien Taquet.
