The abrupt death of Jeffrey continues to generate more questions than answers.
In a statement today, Barr told reporters “Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy.”

Per Marketwatch, Attorney General William Barr says the Justice Department has already found “serious irregularities” at the federal jail where Jeffrey Epstein took his own life over the weekend.
Barr said Monday he was angry to learn that staffers at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York had “failed to adequately secure this prisoner.”
Epstein died Saturday in what prison officials said was an apparent suicide. He was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
Barr did not provide specific details but said investigations by the FBI and the Justice Department inspectors general are continuing. He was speaking at a police conference in New Orleans.
Barr also issued a stern warning, saying the case was far from over. He said anyone who may have conspired with Epstein “should not rest easy.”

The Washington Post reported:
Officers should have been checking on Epstein, who was being held in a special housing unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City, every 30 minutes, and, under normal circumstances, he also should have had a cellmate, according to the person familiar with the matter and union officials representing facility employees.
Meanwhile, social media users continue to express disbelief at the “official story.”
Epstein’s “suicide” is beyond sketch, period. This isn’t a “left” or “right” thing, it’s about TRUTH. He was running one of the biggest pedophile rings and had dirt on tons of elites/politicians, and he somehow manages to commit “suicide” on 24 hr watch?!#EpsteinSuicideCoverUp pic.twitter.com/Yx5PAA6qMN

But a person who had been assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday, and — for reasons that investigators are still exploring — he did not receive a new cellmate, the person familiar with the matter said Sunday night. That left Epstein, who had previously been placed on suicide watch, alone and unmonitored — at least in the hours before his death — by even those officers assigned to guard him.
