Did Einstein place under suicide watch?
In a letter officially notifying the court of Epstein's death, N'Diaye confirmed the July incident would be referenced in the probe carried out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department Office of Inspector General.
They were working as hostesses in a Manhattan restaurant in 2004 when a woman described in the lawsuit as a "recruiter" for Epstein approached them. Why he was taken off suicide watch after so short a period has not been explained.
The Washington Post and The New York Times reported Thursday that the autopsy revealed that a bone in Epstein's neck had been broken, leading to speculation his death was a homicide, though experts said the bone in question often breaks in suicidal hangings.
Three lawyers representing accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein broke their silence Friday evening, announcing they plan to conduct their own thorough investigation into Epstein's shocking death.

Epstein had been left alone in his cell in the special housing unit at the Metropolitan Correctional Center for at least 12 hours before his death after his cellmate was removed. Once they were in the massage room, the eight-page lawsuit said, Epstein was sexually aggressive towards them before giving them several hundred dollars.
Even if one assumes, for the sake of argument, that the medical examiner's ruling is correct and Epstein's death was a suicide, that by no means forecloses the possibility, if not likelihood, of a conspiracy to eliminate him prior to a trial or plea deal.
The report came a day after United States media reported that preliminary findings from the post-mortem examination had found broken bones in Epstein's neck.
It was also reported that Epstein had long harboured a fear of going to jail and had painted a mural of a prison scene in his Manhattan mansion several years ago.
He denied the charges but faced up to 45 years in jail if found guilty.

He appeared to have tied a bedsheet to a top row of bunk beds and then knelt to the floor, breaking his neck.
