Epstein's cell was not regularly monitored the night he is believed to have killed himself, a source with knowledge of Epstein's time at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in NY told CNN. The law enforcement official said in lieu of being on suicide watch, the financier was supposed to be checked by guards every 30 minutes in the protective housing unit, but that that procedure was not followed the night before Epstein's death.
Berkeley Heights, New Jersey (CNN)President Donald Trump on Saturday promoted a conspiracy theory linking the Clinton family to the death of multimillionaire and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, the latest instance of Trump propagating baseless conspiracy theories and falsehoods.
The disgraced money manager was found unresponsive in his single-inmate cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center early Saturday and was declared dead at NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital. An official with knowledge of the investigation told the paper that the Justice Department was told Epstein would have a cellmate and be monitored by a guard every 30 minutes.
The statement said it was "fundamental" to launch an investigation in France so that his death "doesn't deprive the victims of the justice they deserve" and to protect other girls from "this kind of predator".
Epstein's removal from suicide watch would have been approved by both the warden of the jail and the facility's chief psychologist, said Jack Donson, a former prison official who worked for the Bureau of Prisons for more than two decades. At the request of those representing the decedent and with the awareness of the federal prosecutor, I allowed a private pathologist (Dr. Michael Baden) to observe the autopsy examination. 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. The person assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday and never replaced, according to the Washington Post.

"This is routine practice", Sampson said in the statement. The ongoing FBI investigation will allow the coroner's office to make a determination with complete confidence, the network said.
Epstein was being held on child sex trafficking and conspiracy charges after he was denied bail. It remains unknown whether that incident was a suicide attempt or an assault by another inmate.
The billionaire financier was awaiting trial for sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls in the early 2000s.
A Miami Herald series on the plea deal and the new charges in July renewed attention on the plea deal and spurred outrage against it.
Giuffre, in an interview with The New York Times, said she's grateful Epstein will never harm anyone again, but is angry that there would be no chance to see him answer for his conduct.
