An individual conversant in the probe of Jeffrey Epstein’s loss of life at a federal jail says guards are suspected of falsifying log entries to indicate they had been checking on inmates in his unit each half hour, after they really weren’t.
Surveillance video reviewed after the 66-year-old financier’s suspected suicide over the weekend reveals guards by no means made a few of the checks famous within the log, based on the individual conversant in the investigation.
The individual wasn’t approved to reveal data and spoke to The Related Press Tuesday on situation of anonymity.
The event comes because the federal jail in Manhattan the place Epstein was being held comes below rising scrutiny within the wake of Epstein’s suicide over the weekend.
