Report confirms that Jeffrey Epstein was not on suicide watch when he died
Politicians on both sides have demanded answers following the death of Jeffrey Epstein.
Reports have emerged that Jeffrey Epstein was not under suicide watch when he took his own life on Saturday morning.
The disgraced billionaire had attempted to take his own life two weeks ago, and he died by suicide in a New York jail.
The New York Times have revealed that he wasn't under suicide watch, with Attorney General William Barr saying that the death “raises serious questions.”
A number of major US politicians have since demanded that questions surrounding his death be answered, including Rudy Giuliani, who asked "Who was he about to implicate?"
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez simply took to Twitter to demand answers:
We need answers. Lots of them.https://t.co/4DMckiZnVB

President Donald Trump, who was friends with Epstein, is yet to respond the news.
Epstein was arrested on 6 July and charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy to traffic minors for sex.
Prosecutors allege that he brought as many as 40 girls under 18 to his mansion for the purposes of sex.
Epstein was awaiting trial on the charges.
