A source told CBS News that witnesses heard shrieking from Jeffrey Epstein’s cell the morning he died and that guards were heard trying to revive him, saying “breathe, Epstein, breathe,”
Questions continue to be raised about Epstein’s apparent suicide. New reports said that one of the corrections officers on duty that night was not a regular corrections officer at the facility.
Attorney General William Barr said, “We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability. I was appalled and frankly angry to learn of the MCC’s failure to adequately secure this prisoner.”
Government investigators also raided Epstein’s private island in the Virgin Islands Monday. Alleged co-conspirator Ghislane Maxwell has also been accused of having sex with some of the underage girls in addition to allegedly helping recruit them as Epstein’s girlfriend.
The autopsy on Epstein has been performed, but results were initially inconclusive and are pending more information.
