The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced on Tuesday that the warden in charge of the federal prison where accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide has been temporarily reassigned and two corrections officers have been placed on administrative leave.

“Today, the Attorney General directed the Bureau of Prisons to temporarily assign the warden at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York to the Bureau’s Northeast Regional Office pending the outcome of the FBI and OIG investigations into the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, a former MCC inmate,” DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec said.

“FCI Otisville Warden James Petrucci has been named Acting Warden of the MCC New York. The Bureau of Prisons also placed on administrative leave two MCC staff assigned to Mr. Epstein’s unit pending the outcome of the investigations. Additional actions may be taken as the circumstances warrant.”

The announcement comes after Epstein reportedly committed suicide in his jail cell early on Saturday morning after he was taken off of suicide watch late last month and his cellmate was transferred out of the cell just hours prior to the infamous financier’s death.

CBS News reported: “On the morning of Jeffrey Epstein’s death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell, a source familiar with the situation told CBS News. Corrections officers attempted to revive him while saying ‘breath, Epstein, breath.'”

The New York Post reported on Monday that Epstein “apparently killed himself by kneeling toward the floor and strangling himself with the makeshift noose.”

Following Epstein’s death, Attorney General William Barr released the following statement: “I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.”

Fox News reported on Monday that socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is now likely to be the focus of federal prosecutors, who alleged that she was “the ‘madam’ and ‘recruiter’ who supplied underage girls to alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and who’s accused of engaging in assaults alongside the disgraced — and deceased — financier.”

“Several of Epstein’s accusers have pointed to Maxwell as playing a pivotal role in enlisting his victims, according to thousands of pages of court documents unsealed on Friday — just hours before Epstein reportedly used his bedsheet to hang himself from a prison bunk — in relation to a 2015 defamation suit filed against Maxwell,” Fox News added.

“Those who say they’re victims of Epstein and other eyewitnesses to the events surrounding his alleged crimes, have testified Maxwell’s role was in arranging massages and sexual favors for Epstein and a circle of his high-profile associates.”

The FBI raided Epstein’s home in the Virgin Islands on Monday where the reportedly seized multiple computers including “at least two computer desktops and an Apple computer,” CNBC reported.

    After the Epstein ordeal hopefully Maxwell IS in protective custody so She CAN stay Alive to testify against the pedophiles she supplied girls for. I haven’t heard where she is. Hopefully she doesn’t become a Killary casualty.
    Epstein’s “death” becomes more unbelievably by the day. No body, no family talked about, story changes daily. They Can’t rule cause of death. Waiting for someone to tell them what to put I’m thinking. He’s probably on Killarys island somewhere, I’d read before Killary was looking to buy a island.

    If this can happen in this jail which is supposed to be a maximum security prison then El Chapo may also soon reappear on the street again! It seems the corruption in our country is so deep and wide that nothing and nobody is really safe and secure.

    We will never learn the truth, just like all the people that were associated with the Clinton’s that died mysteriously.
