Epstein’s cause of death still not official after autopsy: medical examiner
By Chris Perez
August 11, 2019 | 8:38pm | Updated

Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy has been completed, according to city officials — but the Medical Examiner’s Office needs “further information” before determining a cause of death.

Sources tell The Post that a determination will likely come by early next week.

“Today, a medical examiner performed the autopsy of Jeffrey Epstein,” said Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson in a statement Sunday night.

“The ME’s determination is pending further information at this time. At the request of those representing the decedent, and with the awareness of the federal prosecutor, I allowed a private pathologist (Dr. Michael Baden) to observe the autopsy examination. This is routine practice.”

Sampson added, “My office defers to the involved law enforcement agencies regarding other investigations around this death. Inquiries regarding the determination of the Chief Medical Examiner should be directed towards my office.”

Attempts to reach Dr. Baden, the city’s former chief medical examiner and a deputy chief medical examiner for Suffolk County, were not successful Sunday night. It was not immediately clear who he was working for at the time of the autopsy.

Federal officials claim that Epstein, 66, died of an apparent suicide inside his Manhattan jail cell early Saturday. A city official told the New York Times that the medical examiner believes the cause of death is suicide by hanging, but she needs more information before releasing her determination.

Epstein had been locked up since July on sex trafficking charges and was recently taken off suicide watch following an earlier attempt on his own life.

While there are cameras in the wing where the convicted pedophile was being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, they are pointed towards areas outside the cells and not inside — so there’s no footage of Epstein taking his own life, according to sources familiar with the setup.

New York Attorney General Letitia James, who has toured the MCC, has said that she found it “very difficult to understand how something like this could have happened.”

Epstein victims plan to sue his estate after apparent suicide
By Joe Tacopino
August 11, 2019 | 7:30pm

Women who claim to be victims of sexual abuse at the hands of deceased child molester Jeffrey Epstein are planning to sue his estate under a new law that goes into effect this month.

Lawyers for the women said they want to sue the estate of the multi-millionaire financier under the “Child Victims Act” after the disgraced perv apparently hanged himself in a federal lockup in Lower Manhattan.

“We intend to promptly file those civil claims” having held off suing while federal prosecutors pursued sex trafficking charges against Epstein, Los Angeles attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents two women, told Reuters.

The “Child Victims Act” takes effect on Aug. 14 in New York and gives people a year to sue over allegations of sexual abuse, regardless of when the alleged acts occurred.

Epstein, 66, died on Saturday in an apparent suicide in his cell at the Manhattan Correctional Center.

Bloom said she hopes estate monies will not be distributed until the claims are litigated.

“If we find out the estate is selling off things, dissipating assets, we will go in for a court order,” Bloom said.

Jeffrey Epstein was taken off suicide watch at his lawyers’ request
By Yaron Steinbuch
August 12, 2019 | 9:54am | Updated

Millionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who apparently killed himself while in federal custody in Manhattan, was taken off suicide watch in late July at the request of his attorneys , according to a report.

The disgraced money manager was found unresponsive in his single-inmate cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center early Saturday and was declared dead at NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital.

Epstein had been meeting with his attorneys for up to 12 hours a day before they requested that he be taken off suicide watch, sources familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal.

He was found hanging by his neck about 6:30 a.m. Saturday, a source has told The Post.

Epstein was taken off suicide watch – which required a check every 15 minutes — despite a July 23 incident in which he was found with injuries to his neck.

He had been downgraded to “special observation status,” which required two guards to make separate checks on him every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not followed, a source has told Reuters.

Under the status, Epstein also was supposed to have a cellmate, a person familiar with the matter told the Journal.

His cellmate had apparently left , possibly for a court appearance or another appointment, and was not immediately replaced as required by protocol, the source told the newspaper.

In addition, the decision to remove an inmate off suicide watch would normally have to have been OK’d by the jail’s suicide-prevention program coordinator and then approved by the warden, according to NBC News, which cited protocols.

“Once an inmate has been placed on watch, the watch may not be terminated, under any circumstance, without the program coordinator or designee performing a face-to-face evaluation,” according to the federal Bureau of Prisons official guidelines issued in 2007.

The New York City medical examiner performed an autopsy Sunday but said more information was needed before a determination is made about the death.

Marc Fernich, one of Epstein’s lawyers, declined to comment to The Post on Monday about the Journal report, citing the ongoing investigation.

Epstein’s guards were working ‘extreme’ OT at short-staffed lockup
By Larry Celona, Anabel Sosa and Bruce Golding
August 11, 2019 | 10:57pm | Updated

The two Manhattan jail guards who allegedly failed to monitor Jeffrey Epstein before he died had been working “extreme” overtime shifts amid a severe staffing shortage at the facility, reports said Sunday.

The unidentified jailers at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center violated procedure by failing to check on Epstein every 30 minutes before he apparently committed suicide in his cell, sources told Reuters.

One guard was working his fifth straight day of overtime and the other was toiling under mandatory overtime, a person familiar with operations at the Lower Manhattan lockup told the Associated Press.

The guards also violated procedure by leaving the convicted pedophile without a cellmate, the New York Times reported.

There’s no surveillance video of Epstein’s death , which apparently occurred when the 66-year-old pervert appeared to hang himself Saturday morning, law enforcement officials told The Post.

Although there are cameras in the 9 South wing at the MCC, they are trained on areas outside the cells and not inside , according to officials familiar with the setup

An autopsy was performed on Sunday, but a determination on the cause and manner of Epstein’s death “is pending further information at this time ,” city Chief Medical Examiner Barbara Sampson said in a statement.

Dr. Michael Baden, a former city chief medical examiner and host of the HBO series “Autopsy,” observed the postmortem examination at “the request of those representing the decedent, and with the awareness of the federal prosecutor,” Sampson said.

Epstein’s autopsy was conducted in an isolated, rarely used room in the Manhattan branch of the Medical Examiner’s Office and was also overseen by the FBI, according to a source with knowledge of the procedure.

Both the FBI and the federal Justice Department are investigating Epstein’s death.

A city official told the Times that the ME believes the cause of death is suicide by hanging but that she needs more information before releasing her official determination.

Sources told The Post that a determination will likely come by early next week.

“Something doesn’t smell right, and it’s not [Epstein’s] dead body,” Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said.

Adams noted a July 23 incident in which Epstein was found nearly unconscious in his cell with marks on his neck, as well as blockbuster court papers released on Friday that contained the names of powerful men — including former Sen. George Mitchell of Maine and ex-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson — accused of sleeping with an Epstein teenage “sex slave.”

“Something is really troubling about that, and I think it needs to be investigated extremely and very thoroughly to make sure there wasn’t any foul play,” Adams said.

State Attorney General Letitia James said she had toured the MCC and found it “very difficult to understand how something like this could have happened.”

“My understanding is that he should have been on suicide watch and the people on suicide watch are placed in a type of jumpsuit that wouldn’t allow them to hurt themselves or others,” she said.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, who attended the Iowa State Fair as part of his campaign for the presidency, told The Post that Epstein had “a huge amount of information, potentially, about some of the richest and most powerful people in the country, and it was clear that he had either been attacked or tried to commit suicide previously.”

“And then, you know, suddenly they’re not putting him on suicide watch? I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I don’t understand how those facts fit together,” he said.

Meanwhile, two men spent about 30 minutes inside Epstein’s Upper East Side townhouse on Sunday afternoon, with one carrying out a large tote bag filled with unknown items. Neither would comment before leaving in a late-model SUV.

Epstein had formerly shared a cell in the MCC with a hulking ex-Westchester cop, Nicholas Tartaglione, who was questioned over the July 23 incident and denied any wrongdoing.

Tartaglione’s lawyer, Bruce Barket, said he was “sorry to learn of Mr. Epstein’s suicide” and expressed hope for a “thorough investigation into how this occurred despite the Bureau of Prisons being on notice that Mr. Epstein had already attempted suicide at least once.”
