Guards at the jail where serial sex offender Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide on Saturday failed to make mandatory checks on the inmates the night before. Epstein, 66, was found unresponsive in his cell in the Special Housing Unit at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan at 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

The jail's Special Housing Unit is reserved for high-profile inmates in solitary confinement or inmates who are at risk to injure themselves or others.

Epstein, who faced life in prison for sex trafficking minors, was placed on suicide watch after a previous suicide attempt last month. He was not on suicide watch at the time of his death, NBC reports.

Guards who work on the Special Housing Unit are required to conduct "mandatory" checks on inmates in solitary confinement every 30 minutes, the Federal Bureau of Prisons said in a news release on Saturday.

"At the MCC, two jail guards are required to make separate checks on all prisoners every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not followed overnight," Reuters reported.

Epstein hanged himself in his cell sometime before guards found him in full cardiac arrest (no pulse, no respirations) at 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

The jail's medical staff performed CPR before Epstein was rushed by ambulance to New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The New York Post reported a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the jail and taken to the hospital at 7:30 a.m.

    This is really “in your face”.

    Scary, actually, how “they” have zero phuggs to give.

    Not because “they” are what they are.

    But because “you” are what “you” are.

  • dontgetblocked

    He had to die. He knew the rules when he got involved. Maybe he offed himself or maybe someone else did it...but HE HAD TO DIE!

  • Yardgirl

    Go straight to hell, do not pass go, do not collect nada!! Rot in hell demon. Prayers for the victims.

  • Marlika

    How long is this blame game going to take place? I’m assuming someone will lose their job to cover up what really happened to this piece of ? ?

    Let the man burn in Hell in peace. ??

  • Kimocha

    I think it's waaay too easy for prisoners to kill themselves!... Sounds like these prisons need to start securing sheets, blankets, pillows and pillow cases to the beds with bolts and screws or SOMETHING!... If that don't work then don't give them nothing but just a hard ass cot to sleep on and nothing else...SOMETHING needs to be done bc this happens way too often!

  • Scromes1212

    I don't think people understand how many people would have to be involved if he was killed. Guards, ambulance workers, inmates, nurses, doctors, police smh Just accept the fact he killed himself cause he couldn't do his time.

  • Li-Wright

    Don't believe this. Somebody slipped him a rope. According to NYPost ex-con, that facility is really really tight. But if you have the right connections you can get anything. And Epstein probably wanted a rope.

  • Li-Wright

    They have video tape. Whoever slipped him the rope or saw him last is getting fired.

  • HoneyHitchcock

    I don’t doubt that he killed himself, but I think someone paid him a visit and said you can do it the easy way, your way or we can do it the hard way which is going to be long and painful.

  • Ana Filipovic

    I truly don’t care whether he was killed or killed him self. This is a disgrace and mockery. And everything continues just the same.

  • Panther Charleston

    If Harvard was me: They'd be like, burn that photo and anyone who uses it is getting muggafuggin sued.

  • Coffee1st

    Now.... that's not unheard of. Broke folk have done this too. Someone with vast resources could certainly pull it off.

  • Coffee1st

    No matter how he died, one thing is for sure: What he knows went with him. That was the end goal for everyone - information. Whether to acquire or suppress. It's gone now. They'll have to net another high profile perv and start all over again.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Prisons and jails should be required to have cameras in every inch of those facilities enough ppl have died! Every jail and every prison it should be mandated no blind spots either in the bathrooms and showers PERIOD! In all the cells hall cafeteria and corridor this way it ensures everyone is doing their job and nobody is getting special treatment or bad treatment or killed! Enough inmates have come up raped, pregnant, dead, and missing

  • Lovechild

    We will never know what happened.

  • Cliffpetty

    Listen I am sorry. If I was the guard and old peedi told me I would get paid 3 million to take an extended poop break, I would.

  • Cliffpetty

    I would have skipped that check too. Guarantee on 3 mill I would

    I don’t believe he committed suicide. His death is being faked so that he doesn’t have to be tried in a court of law, and also so that we the public let this go and move on to the next scandal. He is currently in some witness protective program and will have a change of identity.

    Epstein has powerful political connections and because of the “services” he provided to the elite, they will ensure he doesn’t go down, so long as he doesn’t name names. To date he hasn’t named anyone.

  • BlackNicheRims

    This man was murdered.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I guess he's on the same island as Tupac and Elvis.
    Ha,ha,ha!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True!!

  • Gloria

    I need actual proof that the bastard is gone. For all we know, Epstein is on a private island right now, getting a brand new face.

  • Nophace

    Suicide?!? Nah, we don't believe that!!!

    They should have enough to retire, hopefully they are smart enough not to quit right away. The BFF who got 45 installed, told them what to and how to do it.

  • Jethro

    What about the above wouldn't I be serious about? The fact the rot is at the top, or am I misunderstanding your comment? ?

  • Lucky8

    The prison does have cameras, but barr will barr us from seeing what happened.

  • Tanee

    Yall are very delusional about this psyop. No rich wealthy ppl goes to jail. The police only arrest poor ppl and ppl who volunteer to play the game as coon and coonettes as this plantations overseers. You are shamefully deceived by their media and monetary ponzi schemes system illusion of inclusion. Ask the churches pastors and the police all about.
