Sleepy Epstein guards falsified logs, footage shows

According to new information uncovered by the media, on the morning of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s unusual death by alleged suicide, the federal corrections officers at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan who were assigned to monitor him fell asleep at the job.

The two staff members who were guarding the jail unit where Jeffrey Epstein apparently killed himself fell asleep and failed to check on him for about three hours, then falsified records to cover up their mistake,” The New York Times reported late Tuesday, citing anonymous law enforcement and prison officials.

The officers/staff members reportedly wrote in their logs that they’d checked on Epstein every 30 minutes, when in reality they’d spent most of the three hours asleep — thus inadvertently allowing the now-deceased pedophile the opportunity to allegedly kill himself (or be killed?).

When they did finally check on him at 6:30 am Saturday morning, they found him unresponsive.

The Associated Press reported similarly Tuesday, but added that there is surveillance footage from the facility confirming that the “guards never made some of the checks noted in the log.”

As a result of these findings, the Bureau of Prisons reportedly placed the two officers on administrative leave and reassigned the MCC’s warden to another facility. It’s been reported that the reassignment was ordered by Attorney General Bill Barr.

These stunning findings were unveiled a day after Barr confirmed that the Department of Justice Inspector General had begun investigating the late pedophile’s mysterious death and vowed that the original investigation into his sex trafficking ring would continue undeterred.

“Before I begin, I would like to briefly address the news from the Manhattan Correctional Center over the weekend regarding Jeffrey Epstein,” he said at the start of remarks he delivered Monday at the Grand Lodge Fraternal Order of Police’s 64th National Biennial Conference in New Orleans.

“This case was very important to the Department. It was important to the dedicated prosecutors and agents who investigated the case and were preparing it for trial. 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 court.”

“I was appalled – indeed, the entire Department was – and frankly angry, to learn of the MCC’s failure to adequately secure this prisoner,” he continued. “We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and that demand a thorough investigation. The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are already doing just that. We will get to the bottom of what happened at the MCC and we will hold people accountable for this failure.”

Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice, and we will ensure they get it.

Listen:

Because of the inordinate number of discrepancies surrounding Epstein’s highly unusual death, many still remain convinced that foul play was involved. And each time new information is unveiled, the nature of the information invariably leads to the “conspiracies” only ballooning.

For instance, it was revealed Monday that despite an autopsy having already been performed on the deceased pedophile’s body, the results have yet to be released because “more information” is reportedly still needed. This seems highly unusual, to say the least.

“An autopsy was completed on Sunday but Dr. Barbara Sampson, the chief medical examiner, said she was seeking more information before determining the cause of death for the 66-year-old Epstein,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

As noted by a slew of social media critics, it’s unclear how in the world any more information could be needed after an autopsy:

The latter Twitter user mentioned “more jail footage.” It doesn’t exist.

The New York Post already confirmed via sources over the weekend that the cameras in Epstein’s wing of the facility “are trained on the areas outside the cells and not inside.”
