Barr Says There Were ‘Serious Irregularities’ at Jail Holding Epstein

Barr Says There Were ‘Serious Irregularities’ at Jail Holding Epstein

Foster defended himself against the backlash in a follow-up tweet, which included side-by-side images of Epstein before and (allegedly) after his death and the hashtag #EpsteinBodyDouble.

Epstein owned a private island in the Caribbean, homes in Paris and New York City, a New Mexico ranch, and a fleet of high-price cars. Members of that circle, who included former USA president Bill Clinton and billionaire Leslie Wexner, all distanced themselves from the financier after his July arrest.

U.S. President Donald Trump retweeted a conspiracy theory from popular pro-Trump social media personality Terrence Williams that used numerous day's top trending topics, which were filled with thousands of people spreading conjecture on how they believe powerful individuals tied to Epstein had him offed.

But the deal, which allowed Epstein to plead guilty to lesser charges, was actually finalised before Mr Obama took office under the administration of President George W, Bush. That allowed him to avoid federal prosecution and a possible life sentence.

He served 13 months in a county jail before being released. The unit separates inmates such as accused sex offenders from the general population for their protection.

He was discovered unresponsive in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in NY around 6:30 am (1030 GMT) on Saturday, the US Department of Justice said.

Staff tried to revive him, and he was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

He was transported to the hospital and pronounced dead.

New York City's Chief Medical Examiner, Barbara Sampson, said in a statement that an autopsy of Epstein had been performed Sunday and that the determination of the cause of death awaited further information.

US Attorney General William Barr said Saturday that he was "appalled" to learn Epstein died of an apparent suicide in federal custody.

Epstein's death in a high-security NY jail, just weeks after an earlier possible attempt on his own life, meant he should have been under close watch and has fueled anger and a conspiracy theory frenzy.

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".

What was the new case against him?

The Associated Press, Reuters and the New York Times have already reported that Epstein was off suicide watch when he died.

The accuser in that pending lawsuit, Jennifer Araoz, said Saturday that she is "angry Jeffrey Epstein won't have to face his survivors of his abuse in court". (Getty) A general view of the Manhattan Correctional Center where the U.S. financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in NY.

"It was important to the dedicated prosecutors in the Southern District of NY and to our Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who investigated the case and were preparing it for trial". "Simple as that", she said.

What happens now for his accusers?

The request was initially denied, but an appeals court ordered them released last month, just days before Epstein was arrested on sex-trafficking charges. They called on federal authorities to investigate associates of Epstein for any role in his activities.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, now an attorney for President Donald Trump, tweeted out several questions about Epstein's death Saturday afternoon.

The woman's attorney, Sigrid McCawley, said Epstein's suicide less than 24 hours after the documents were unsealed "is no coincidence".
