Jeffrey Epstein cause of death 'pending further information'

Jeffrey Epstein's suicide sparks fresh round of conspiracy theories

But sources told ABC News that protocol was not followed prior to Epstein's death by suicide. The tweet also falsely claimed that Epstein died while on suicide watch, even though Epstein had been taken off of suicide watch before his death.

The reason is that Epstein was the only person who had legal standing to sue the investigators trying to comb through the evidence in his mansions and penthouses, including videotapes of young girls and documents that may mention the names of people who were at his properties on specific dates. Now, however, no one has standing to put the brakes on the investigation.

Bob Hood, a former chief of internal affairs for the Bureau of Prisons, told the paper he didn't understand why Epstein was taken off suicide watch.

Attorney General William Barr said that the FBI and the Department of Justice's inspector general were opening investigations into Epstein's death.

A source told Reuters that the financier wasn't on suicide watch at the time of his death.

Sampson said having a private pathologist observe an autopsy is a routine practice. The financier was facing up to 45 years in prison if convicted of conspiracy and sex trafficking dozens of underage girls in the states of NY and Florida. He noted in a statement Saturday that the indictment against Epstein includes a conspiracy charge, suggesting others could face charges in the case. It remains unknown whether that incident was a suicide attempt or an assault by another inmate. "They've been looking for justice for many, many years", she said on Fox News Sunday.

"We've worked so hard to get here, and he stole that from us, too", she told the newspaper. McCawley urged authorities to continue their investigation, focusing on Epstein associates who she said "participated and facilitated Epstein's horrifying sex trafficking scheme". Prosecutors said he sexually abused dozens of young girls in his NY and Florida residences between 2002 and 2005, to which Epstein pleaded not guilty.

A Miami Herald series on the plea deal and the new charges in July renewed attention on the plea deal and spurred outrage against it.

Epstein's lawyers maintained that the new charges in NY were covered by the 2008 plea deal and that Epstein hadn't had any illicit contact with underage girls since serving his 13-month sentence in Florida. He socialized with princes and presidents, and lived on a 100-acre private Caribbean island and one of the biggest mansions in NY.
