US Attorney General Bill Barr on Wednesday addressed Epstein’s case and the DOJ’s investigation into the financier’s death which was ruled to be a suicide by hanging by the NYC medical examiner.
“I think soon I will be in a position to report to Congress and the public the results,” Barr told reporters.
“We have found serious irregularities at the center,” Barr said reiterating his previous statement on the failures of prison policy at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. “But at the same time I have seen nothing that undercuts the finding of the medical examiner that this was a suicide.”
66-year-old financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell two weekends ago on a Saturday morning and the medical examiner ruled his death a suicide by hanging.
Epstein had many broken bones in his neck, including his hyoid bone which is consistent with homicide by strangulation.
According to previous reports, an unidentified “associate” of Epstein’s has already claimed his body.
