Epstein Was Left Alone In His Cell and Not Closely Monitored Prior To Suicide
Jeffrey Epstein was left alone in his own cell and not closely monitored prior to his apparent suicide, according to the New York Times.
Jeffrey Epstein, the financier who hanged himself in a federal jail in Manhattan, was supposed to have been checked by guards every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not being followed the night before he was found, a law-enforcement official with knowledge of his detention said.
In addition, the jail had transferred his cellmate and allowed Mr. Epstein to be housed alone in a cell just two weeks after he had been taken off suicide watch, a decision that also violated the jail’s normal procedure, two officials said.

“Jeffrey Epstein suicide: how extraordinarily convenient for Trump, Clinton, Wexner and all those other "important people" involved in Epstein's financial and/or sexual "activities." Perhaps the Godfather films need and now have a sequel.”

“The DOJ was informed that Epstein had been taken off suicide watch. In this high profile of a case, shouldn't we assume Bill Barr personally was aware of that, especially since Barr has proven to be quite the micromanager in any every case that could touch Trump?”
