AG says 'irregularities' found at jail where Epstein died

The Daily Mail also reported the raids on its website. He was later pronounced dead from an apparent suicide, the BOP said.

Epstein was recently denied bail while awaiting trial on charges involving one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams expressed outrage at the circumstances surrounding Epstein's death, stating during the annual Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan that "something is really troubling about that, c and I think it needs to be investigated extremely and very thoroughly to make sure there wasn't any foul play".

Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found in his cell a little over two weeks ago with bruises on his neck, a person familiar with the jail's operations told The Associated Press. But he was taken off the watch at the end of July and therefore wasn't on it at the time of his death, the person said.

"We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability", said Barr, who has also ordered the Justice Department's inspector general to investigate the circumstances. U.S. Labour Secretary Alexander Acosta resigned last month after coming under fire for overseeing that deal when he was U.S. attorney in Miami.

The jail does have a video surveillance system, but federal standards don't allow the use of cameras to monitor areas where prisoners are likely to be undressed unless those cameras are monitored only by staff members of the same gender as the inmates.

According to the charges - which Epstein denied - the girls, some as young as 14, were given hundreds of dollars for sex acts. In October, Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger was killed in a federal prison in West Virginia where had just been transferred.

They did not provide details of the alleged links, though a source in Schiappa's office referred to numerous trips by Epstein to France. The decision by officials at the Bureau of Prisons not to keep Epstein on a suicide watch by guards has come under scrutiny.

The records contain graphic allegations against Mr Epstein, as well as the transcript of a 2016 deposition of Mr Epstein in which he repeatedly refused to answer questions to avoid incriminating himself.

Although Clinton traveled several times on Epstein's plane, the former president said he never visited the Caribbean island where the billionaire and friends reportedly assaulted minors.

Ms Araoz alleged that Mr Epstein raped her in his NY mansion in the early 2000s when she was 15.

"We've worked so hard to get here, and he stole that from us, too", she told The New York Times. Richardson, through a spokeswoman, said that he has "never been to Mr. Epstein's residence in the Virgin Islands", and he "has never met Ms. Giuffre".

Epstein's death cut short a prosecution that could have pulled back the curtain on his activities and his connections to celebrities and presidents, though Barr vowed Monday that the case will continue "against anyone who was complicit with Epstein".

Before his legal troubles, Epstein led a life of extraordinary luxury that drew powerful people into his orbit. He socialized with princes and presidents and lived on a 100-acre private Caribbean island and one of the biggest mansions in NY.
