Epstein Prison Guards “Not Cooperating” With DOJ Probe

Share

Employees at the Manhattan Metropolitan Correctional Center where convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein reportedly took his own life last week are not cooperating with the Justice Department investigators according to Fox News.

Two senior DOJ officials sent by Attorney General William Barr have been on-site at MCC while the agency’s Inspector General investigates the situation. According to a senior DOJ official, Barr said that “serious irregularities” had been uncovered at the jail.

The night of Epstein’s death, correctional officers did not check on the extremely high-profile prisoner for “several hours” before he died, despite being required to look in on him every 30 minutes. Moreover, guards are suspected of falsifying log entries to show that they were checking as required, according to the Associated Press.

In response, officials with the Federal Bureau of Prisons have been on-site at MCC to assist with the investigation.

BOP officials from various regional offices have also been sent to the Manhattan facility to lend their expertise and insight. In addition, a separate BOP “After Action Team” went to MCC earlier this week in an effort to examine what happened the night Epstein died. The use of the “After Action Team” is part of BOP protocol whenever a “significant event takes place at a prison.

Epstein was found dead in his cell on Aug. 10. Earlier Friday, New York City’s medical examiner officially ruled the 66-year-old’s death a suicide by hanging.

Fox News has also learned that 20 of 21 prison staff posts were filled between the hours of 4 p.m. and 12 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 9, the day before Epstein was found. Of those prison workers, six of them were working voluntary overtime. Between 12 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10, 18 of 19 staff posts were filled. Of those 18 staffers, 10 were working overtime and all but one of those were doing so voluntarily.Fox News

Two staffers have been placed on administrative leave, while MCC’s warden was reassigned pending the investigation.

It is indisputable that the authorities violated their own protocols,” said Epstein’s attorneys, Martin Weinberg, Reid Weingarten and Michael Miller. “The defense team fully intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of Mr. Epstein’s death including if necessary legal action to view the pivotal videos – if they exist as they should – of the area proximate to Mr. Epstein’s cell during the time period leading to his death.”

Epstein’s attorneys also addressed the deceased pedophile’s controversial autopsy, which concluded that he hanged himself using bed-sheets, breaking his hyoid bone near the Adam’s apple. This is typically only broken during strangulation victims, however they can also be broken via hanging – particularly if the person is older.

We are not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner,” they said, adding “We will have a more complete response in the coming days” (and will bill Epstein’s estate accordingly, we’re sure).

Meanwhile, several women are suing Epstein’s estate, claiming he sexually abused them.

The suit, filed Thursday in a federal court in New York, claims the women were working as hostesses at a popular Manhattan restaurant in 2004 when they were recruited to give Epstein massages. One was 18 at the time. The other was 20.

The lawsuit says an unidentified female recruiter offered the hostesses hundreds of dollars to provide massages to Epstein, saying he ‘liked young, pretty girls to massage him,’ and wouldn’t engage in any unwanted touching. The women say Epstein groped them anyway.

One plaintiff now lives in Japan, the other in Baltimore. They seek $100 million in damages, citing depression, anxiety, anger and flashbacks.

Other lawsuits, filed over many years by other women, accused him of hiring girls as young as 14 or 15 to give him massages, then subjecting them to sex acts. –Daily Mail

Epstein had faced up to 45 years in prison if found guilty of exploiting dozens of underage girls at his residences in Manhattan and Florida between 2002 and 2005.

      No reason why prison personel should give a damn whether Epstein was hanged or strangled? only reason to thwart this investigation is if Epstein is waiting on a remote island for them to come work for him there? ALWAYS follow the money, and again on this case, Epstein has the money.

        Gary K knows what is going on………..everyone in the world who does not have his or her head in the sand knew Epstein was never going to trial……he was dead, dead, dead, one way or another. Those guards most likely cut some deal with the people who actually run this world and looked the other way while the deed was done. They know if they talk, they will be dead, dead, dead as well. I am even willing to bet, both these guards will eventually be dead as well because they only way to really silence people is to kill them. You never know when they may grow a conscience……….just like the young girls that Clinton had at Epstein island………they will never talk because they are buried in those caverns on the island.

            Has anyone ever noticed that everyone who is going to testify against the Clintons “commits suicide”? It started all the way back to Vince Foster. He was due to testify against them in the Whitewater scheme. It continues to this day.

          You have that right. Between the Clinton’s, Obama, and Soros they can afford to pay any price it takes to get people killed. By the way it is not limited to an individual. They would have the whole building blown up if they had to. It’d be a gas leak you know.

      Many people are suspected of being involved in the CONSPIRACY to end this man’s life. The 1st attempt was by His cellmate (rather large ex-cop, supposed to have murdered Four & buried Them in His Yard)—deemed an attempted suicide. The Second strange thing was 2 fold : removing His cell mate, CAMERA (S) failing—
      Everyone involved need to be arrested/ booked (for involvement in a murder) and put under “oath” before being questioned—-A GRAND JURY INVESTIGATION.

      Hillary bought an expensive house in china for the captain of the guards for that unit right before the hanging. Hillary had Epstein killed because she did not want her and bill exposed. also Obama rode to Epstein inland on Epstein’s plane as well. the democrats did not want any of that out. they still think they will run Michelle Obama for president.

          I wonder how we can all figure this out but the people that are paid a lot of money and have every resource available to them cant seem to figure anything out. It could be on full color 1080i video and it would still take them forever and still wouldnt be any charges brought against them. The corruption goes way deep into all branches of the government. There is already enough evidence in Black and White to hang Killary from the tallest tree but yet she is walking free. The double standards are completely rediculous and need to chsnge.

    If these guards will not cooperate the. They should be tried, convicted and sentenced a murderers after the fact in Epstein’s death. If he actually did commit suicide, which I in concrete terms, FULLY DOUBT, then these guards were complicit in allowing Epstein to end his own life. But with the suicide rate that is connected to a certain Political Crime Fsmily, of which one family member was stuck to Epstein like Gorilla Gkue, Suicide is not my first thought in his death!!

    I just don’t believe that he committed suicide. Tying a sheet to the upper bunk, kneeling to get any resistance, and then leaning forward to cause it to strangle you just doesn’t compute. Number one, I don’t care how determined you were, I just don’t believe it would work because of the instinct to let up on the tension and give up on that idea and number two, the pressure necessary to break the hyoid bone and other bones in the neck would only be strong enough if he had rigged a noose that hung from the ceiling and jumped off a ladder or tall chair that would cause a violent trauma to the neck. I am no expert, but I cannot believe anyone with a mind capable of analytical thought would swallow that story either.

    They are not cooperating because they don’t want to end up like Epstein. Loose ends. Here’s an old proverb or saying. “The only way two people can keep a secret is if one of them is dead”. Pretty sure Epstein won’t be the last to die involved with this crime.

    Guards aren’t talking because they know they WILL be sued.
    The warden was transferred, and the 2 guards were “placed on administrative leave”.
    They should have been fired.
    I still don’t believe he is dead. There is a nagging conspiracy theory in the back of my brain that screams this is all ‘smoke-n-mirrors’ to catch a bunch of highfalutin creeps.
    The FBI, CIA, and even the Secret Service are ALL capable of pulling off a coverup like this.

    If you used a bed sheet for a noose, how big around would it be. It would not be like a rope, with all the pressure in one spot, it would probable be as wide as your neck and might support your whole weight without strangling you. Also a rope would tighten as you applied weight, where it would be hard to tie a bed sheet with a slip knot in it. it’s possible you might be able to strangle yourself but seems like it would be almost impossible to break any bones.

    Subpoena them and if they do not co-operate then throw them in jail until they do-co-operate. Freeze their bank accounts and don’t allow any visitors. If they have a family too bad. They should have thought of that. And do not allow them to get any compensation from their job and fire them without any benefits, retirement etc,

    FOX NEWS stated that the 2 guards were not INITIALLY cooperating. I would guess that was likely because of their filing false claims regarding the times they checked on his cell.
