There is no surveillance video of Epstein’s apparent suicide according to many sources familiar with the prison setup.
On Monday AG Barr told the National Fraternal Order of Police in New Orleans that the investigation will go on following Epstein’s death.
Attorney General Bill Barr: “Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy.”
