A new report from The New York Post found that billionaire convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s death was more peculiar than most jailhouse suicides.
“Jeffrey Epstein was found hanging in his Lower Manhattan jail cell with a bedsheet wrapped around his neck and secured to the top of a bunk bed,” The Post has reported.
“The convicted pedophile, who was 6 feet tall, apparently killed himself by kneeling toward the floor and strangling himself with the makeshift noose, a law enforcement source said Monday.”
According to the insider’s report, Epstein was “unresponsive” when found by personnel in the Special Housing Unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, the Post reported that the federal Bureau of Prisons stated.
While prison staffers attempted to revive the high profile detainee, and he was taken to the infirmary, he was later taken by ambulance to the NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital and was there pronounced dead.
Attorney General <a href="http://Written by Savannah Pointer. Follow Savannah on Twitter ” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>William Barr announced on Monday that he would be looking into the death of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in his recent reported suicide, The New York Post reported.
“We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability,” Barr said at a law enforcement gathering in New Orleans according to the Post.
The attorney general went on to warn those involved in the alleged crimes that led to Epstine’s arrest:
“Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice and they will get it,” Barr vowed.
Barr’s comments were made while delivering the keynote address at the National Fraternal Order of Police’s conference, where he added that Epstein’s case “was very important to the Department of Justice and to me personally.”
“Most importantly, this case was important to the victims who had the courage to come forward and deserved the opportunity to confront the accused in the courtroom,” Barr said.
“I was appalled, and indeed the whole department was, and frankly angry, to learn of the MCC’s failure to adequately secure this prisoner,” the AG continued.
“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation. The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are doing just that.
