The FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office will investigate how Jeffrey Epstein died in an apparent suicide Saturday, while the probe into sexual abuse allegations against the well-connected financier remains ongoing, officials said.
The FBI signaled it is investigating the death of disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein after he was discovered dead in his Manhattan jail cell due to an “apparent suicide.”
The U.S. Bureau of Prisons said in a news release Saturday that the FBI would investigate the apparent suicide.
Attorney General William Barr also announced following Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide Saturday morning that justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz launched an investigation into the circumstances of the accused child sex trafficker’s death in his prison cell.
The federal investigation into the allegations remains steadfast, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said. He noted in a statement Saturday that the indictment against Epstein includes a conspiracy charge, suggesting others could face charges in the case.
Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote Saturday in a scathing letter to Barr that “heads must roll” after the incident.
“Every single person in the Justice Department — from your Main Justice headquarters staff all the way to the night-shift jailer — knew that this man was a suicide risk, and that his dark secrets couldn’t be allowed to die with him,” Sasse wrote.
Let’s hope that the truth will surface despite Epstein’s dead.
