Jail Staffers Guarding Jeffrey Epstein’s Unit Placed on Leave

from The Wall Street Journal,

Warden of New York detention facility was reassigned as Justice Department continues probe.

Two jail staffers who were guarding Jeffrey Epstein ’s unit the night he died were placed on leave Tuesday, and the warden of the New York detention facility was reassigned as the Justice Department intensified its investigation of the disgraced financier’s death. “Additional actions may be taken as the circumstances warrant,” Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said. Attorney General William Barr, who said investigators had uncovered “serious irregularities” at the federal jail in Manhattan, made the personnel moves after Mr. Epstein’s death Saturday morning. In the hours leading up to Mr. Epstein’s death, one of the guards overseeing him wasn’t a correctional officer, a person familiar with the matter said, though he had worked in that capacity for seven years before transferring to a different job at the prison. Both guards had been working overtime, this person said. Mr. Epstein’s cellmate in his special housing unit also was gone, the person said, leaving him alone and unsupervised.
