Jeffrey Epstein Attorney: He Was Concerned For His Life

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have raided the island of Little St. James, property of the financier Jeffrey Epstein, two days after his death inside a NY jail.

Epstein is believed to have visited France frequently, with USA authorities saying Epstein had a residence in Paris, described by French sources as a luxury apartment on the Avenue Foch, one of the capital's most expensive streets, favoured by royalty, celebrities and billionaires.

Epstein was arrested on July 6 in New Jersey after his private jet landed on a flight from Paris.

Law enforcement officials told The New York Post on August 11 that there is no surveillance footage of the apparent suicide. He noted in a statement Saturday that the indictment against Epstein includes a conspiracy charge, suggesting others could face charges in the case.

Barr weighed in on the weekend incident at a news conference in New Orleans, saying that initial discoveries made by investigators probing into the apparent suicide of Epstein found the jail is partially responsible for the incident.

Without Epstein to stand trial, legal experts told BBC's USA affiliate CBS News that federal prosecutors will likely dismiss the criminal case against Epstein. Even so, federal authorities are turning their sights on people who allegedly helped him maintain a years-long pattern of luring underage girls into abuse. "Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton tweeted on Monday "Epstein death is a disaster for the rule of law and Justice Department".

Barr pledged to pursue any co-conspirators in the sex trafficking case.

But without the results from the post mortem examination, questions still loom regarding the precise cause of Epstein's death.

A determination on the cause of death 'is pending further information at this time, ' Sampson said in a statement.

Revelations that Epstein was left unsupervised and without a cellmate after an apparent suicide attempt in July has also raised questions.

Last month, Epstein was found unconscious on the floor of his jail cell with marks on his neck, and officials were investigating that incident as a possible suicide or assault.

The 66-year-old financier was found Saturday morning in his cell at the chronically short-staffed Metropolitan Correctional Center, in a unit known for holding notorious prisoners under extremely tight security. Epstein soon began spending his fortune - including on a mansion in Florida, a ranch in New Mexico, and reputedly the largest private home in NY. Reports of Epstein's actual wealth varied, with his Virgin Islands-based firm generating no public records.

Epstein's friends included US President Donald Trump, former President Bill Clinton and Britain's Prince Andrew.

Police have been investigating Epstein since the 2000s, arresting him in 2005 for molesting an underage girl. Instead, he received an 18-month prison sentence, during which he was able to go on "work release" to his office for 12 hours a day, six days a week.
