This is a service for people who may be thinking about suicide, or those who are concerned about family or friends.

He blamed the Metropolitan Correctional Center for failing to "adequately secure this prisoner".

The manner in which Epstein killed himself has not been announced publicly by government officials.

As authorities were conducting Jeffrey Epstein's autopsy in New York City, The Associated Press reported that just two guards - one working a fifth day of overtime and another working mandatory overtime - were on duty at the Metropolitan Correctional Center on the morning of the U.S. financier's apparent suicide. A private pathologist, Dr. Michael Baden, observed the autopsy at the request of Epstein's lawyers.

Sampson is "confident" his death was suicide, sources told The New York Times yesterday, but she is awaiting more information before releasing her determination.

Later Monday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler and ranking member Rep. Doug Collins wrote a letter to the Bureau of Prisons asking 23 questions about Epstein's death and policies "pertaining to inmates considered at risk for suicide and how such policies were implemented in this case".

"To make good use of the money would be to determine if one of those charities would use the funds to study the prevention of this kind of abuse in the future". "There are a lot of suicides that just end up being recorded". He had been on suicide watch last month but not at the time of his death. A person familiar with the jail's operations told The Associated Press that a guard in Epstein's unit was working a fifth straight day of overtime and another guard was working mandatory overtime the day he was found.

Barr said on Saturday that he had asked the Justice Department's inspector general to investigate Epstein's death. He also warned the financier's "co-conspirators" to "rest easy".

"Prosecutors would have to present compelling evidence that each asset to be seized was connected to criminal activity", they said.

Epstein had been charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents searched Epstein's luxury home on Little St. James in the US Virgin Islands on Monday morning, using golf carts to get around, NBC News reported.

The accusers said Epstein's death rendered moot all possible objections to scrapping the agreement. He was already a registered sex offender after pleading guilty in 2008 to Florida state charges of unlawfully paying a teenage girl for sex. Epstein pled not guilty, but had he been convicted, he faced up to 45 years in prison.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons, which operates the MCC, provided no explanation beyond its terse statement that Epstein was found dead in an apparent suicide. However, that did not happen did not during the night before the billionaire's death, an official said.

The brass tacks of the matter is that federal authorities are investigating and they say, on background, that jail officials at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan screwed up.

They have all strenuously denied the allegations.

Eight months later, the lockup remains so short-staffed that the BOP is offering correctional officers a $10,000 bonus to transfer there from other federal lockups. "It was inevitable. Our staff is severely overworked".
