According to news reports, jail procedures were violated.
Epstein was not checked every 30 minutes as required by normal procedures. Also, he didn’t have a jail mate which he should have had because of a previous possible suicide attempt. It’s also reported there’s no video surveillance capturing his movements inside his prison cell.
Based on a source, The New York Post Tweeted Epstein hanged himself.

Epstein’s death raised suspicions because it followed recently released documents where an Epstein accuser said she was ordered to have sex with former Senator George Mitchell and former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.
Mitchell and Richardson denied the allegations.
Attorney General William Barr said in a statement expressing outrage over Epstein’s death, “I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody.”
In another troubling development, Epstein was removed from suicide watch after an evaluation even though he possibly tried to commit suicide a few weeks ago.
The Washington Post wrote an article about the dead financier that highlighted must know facts surrounding him.
The events leading up to Epstein’s death are suspicious and the results of the federal government investigation of his death will be viewed with extreme skepticism.
