Attorney General Barr says any Epstein co-conspirators 'should not rest easy'

Attorney General Barr says any Epstein co-conspirators 'should not rest easy'

U.S. President Donald Trump retweeted a conspiracy theory from popular pro-Trump social media personality Terrence Williams that used numerous day's top trending topics, which were filled with thousands of people spreading conjecture on how they believe powerful individuals tied to Epstein had him offed.

After the death on Saturday of Epstein, a millionaire charged with sex trafficking who once counted Trump and former President Bill Clinton as friends, Trump retweeted a baseless claim from a conservative comedian that Clinton was involved in the death.

He served 13 months in a county jail before being released in 2009. The unit separates inmates such as accused sex offenders from the general population for their protection.

New York City medical examiner personnel leave their vehicle and walk to the Manhattan Correctional Center Saturday.

Epstein was found unconscious at around 6:30am Saturday inside his NY prison cell and rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Staff tried to revive him, and he was transported to a local hospital for treatment. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

A month before Jeffrey Epstein's death by apparent suicide in a NY prison, a federal indictment cast light on what prosecutors said was a sprawling network of high school and college students lined up by young recruiters and then forced to satisfy the hedge fund billionaire's insatiable sexual appetite.


The FBI and the Department of Justice's Inspector General opened investigations into his suicide while he was in federal custody. The official had been briefed on the matter but spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorised to discuss it publicly.

Other Epstein theories floating online have been darker, especially after Epstein was found injured on the floor of his cell last month with bruises on his neck.

What was the new case against him?

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said it "way too convenient" that Epstein could no longer incriminate others. They accused him of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls.

Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to charges of soliciting prostitution, spent a year in jail.

Jeffrey Epstein's alleged suicide has since sparked a federal investigation into why the Manhattan jail officers had taken the disgraced financier off suicide watch, with his accusers furious that they will now be denied justice.

"The victims deserved to see Epstein held accountable, and he owed it to everyone he hurt to accept responsibility for all of the pain he caused", Edwards said in a statement.


But his attorneys insisted that Epstein hadn't had any illicit contact with underage girls since serving his sentence in Florida.

The federal investigation into the allegations remains ongoing, said Geoffrey Berman, attorney for the Southern District of NY. Authorities believe Epstein hanged himself, one of the law enforcement sources said.

What happens now for his accusers?

While Twitter is rife with conspiracy theories about Epstein's death, the band's assertion that he remains alive was called "irresponsible" by some.

Jena-Lisa Jones, 30, who said she was just 14 when she was introduced to Epstein and was paid $200 by him to give him a massage at his home, said he took "the easy way out".

"Today's events are disturbing, and we are deeply aware of their potential to present yet another hurdle to giving Epstein's many victims their day in court", Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, said in a statement. Araoz alleged that Epstein raped her in his NY mansion in the early 2000s when she was 15.
