Two guards assigned to watch Jeffrey Epstein the night he apparently killed himself in jail have been placed on leave and the warden has been removed as federal authorities investigate the financier's death, the Justice Department said Tuesday.

The announcement came amid mounting evidence that the chronically understaffed Metropolitan Correctional Center may have bungled its responsibility to keep the 66-year-old Epstein from harming himself while he awaited trial on charges of sexually abusing teenage girls.

Epstein was taken off a suicide watch last month for reasons that have not been explained, and was supposed to have been checked on by a guard every 30 minutes. But investigators learned those checks weren't done for several hours before he was found Saturday morning, according to a person familiar with the case.

“Serene Gregg, president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 3148, told The Washington Post that one of the guards was a fill-in who had been pressed into service because of staffing shortages”

The warden and 2 guards seem like scapegoats in a systemic problem that the DOJ/AG Barr and the BOP should be answering for.

They’ll get a good hunk of money most likely from anonymous donors

There’s no evidence of a conspiracy here. There’s plenty of evidence of severe understaffing in federal prisons. Barr has acknowledged there’s both serious irregularities in the prison and that federal prisons aren’t adequately staffed. If that’s why Epstein was able to kill himself, the BOP and DOJ should have answers as to why they’re letting any prisoners, much less a high profile one, live In poorly supervised conditions. The BOP doesn’t even have a permanent Director, just an Acting one, and hasn’t had once since May 2018.
