Warden of jail where Jeffrey Epstein killed himself reassigned, two guards placed on leave on orders of Attorney General William Barr

A New York Medical Examiner’s car is parked outside the Metropolitan Correctional Center where financier Jeffrey Epstein was being held, on August 10, 2019, in New York.

The warden of the federal jail in New York City where wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein killed himself was replaced Tuesday on orders of Attorney General William Barr pending investigations into the incident, the Justice Department said.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons also placed two staffers at the Metropolitan Correctional Center who had been assigned to Epstein’s cell unit on administrative leave as probes into the death of the accused child sex trafficker continue.

“Additional actions may be taken as the circumstances warrant,” said Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec.

Replacing Shirley Skipper-Scott as acting warden of the MCC is James Petrucci, the warden of the federal prison in Otisville, New York.

Skipper-Scott has been transferred to the Bureau of Prison’s Northeast Regional Office.

A lawyer for Epstein, who was a former friend of Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.

The Bureau of Prisons also did not respond for a request for comment.

Attorney General William Barr says there were 'serious irregularities' at jail where Jeffrey Epstein killed himself

The former friend of Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump was being held in the Metropolitan Correctional Center pending his trial on charges of sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy to sex traffic minors.

Epstein, 66, was found Saturday morning in his jail cell in cardiac arrest and was transferred to a New York hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to NBC News. Sources told NBC that Epstein hanged himself.

“Any co-conspirators should not rest easy,” Barr said. “The victims deserve justice and they will get it.”

Barr, who said in a statement over the weekend that he was “appalled” by Epstein’s death, also fired a warning shot to anyone who may have been involved in the wealthy financier’s alleged crimes.

“We will get to the bottom of what happened,” Barr vowed in blistering opening remarks at a police event in New Orleans, “and there will be accountability.”

Attorney General William Barr said Monday that there were “serious irregularities” at the Manhattan federal jail where Jeffrey Epstein, an accused child sex trafficker, apparently killed himself over the weekend .

Those charges were lodged by Manhattan federal prosecutors and made public last month after his arrest at a New Jersey airport, where Epstein had flown into from Paris on his private plane.

Just a few weeks before his death, Epstein had been discovered lying semiconscious in the fetal position in his cell. He reportedly had marks on his neck, raising the possibility that he had attempted to kill himself then.

Epstein was subsequently transferred to suicide watch — but outlets reported that he was taken off suicide watch just six days later. He had reportedly been alone in his cell and was not monitored by guards who were supposed to check on him every 30 minutes.

The New York Times also reported that Epstein’s cellmate had been transferred shortly before the apparent suicide, leaving him alone.

Barr, keynote speaker at the National Fraternal Order of Police’s biennial conference in New Orleans, said Epstein’s case “was very important to the Department of Justice and to me personally,” as well as to the FBI and the federal prosecutors preparing to take the case to trial.

“Most importantly, this case was important to the victims who had the courage to come forward and deserved the opportunity to confront the accused in the courtroom,” Barr said.

“I was appalled, and indeed the whole department was, and frankly angry, to learn of the MCC’s failure to adequately secure this prisoner,” Barr said.

He continued: “We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation. The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are doing just that.”

Barr also assured that Epstein’s case, and the cases related to his alleged sex crimes, will continue on “against anyone who was complicit with Epstein.”

The wealthy financier was accused in the New York case of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls at his mansions on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and in Palm Beach, Florida, between 2002 and 2005. He had pleaded not guilty to the two counts against him, which carried a maximum possible sentence of 45 years if convicted.

A decade earlier, Epstein had pleaded guilty to Florida state charges of prostitution with an underage girl, which allowed him to avoid more severe federal charges.

He was sentenced to 13 months in a state prison, and was allowed out on work release for most days during his incarceration. Alex Acosta, who was the top prosecutor in Florida at that time, resigned as Trump’s Labor secretary last month amid an outcry over Epstein’s lenient plea deal.

On Friday, a federal appeals court publicly disclosed nearly 2,000 pages of documents related to Epstein that had previously been entered under seal in a case involving one of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Giuffre, and Ghislaine Maxwell, the late money manager’s alleged procurer of underage girls.

The documents included flight records showing that Trump had flown on Epstein’s private plane in 1996; previously released flight logs showed Clinton had been on the plane multiple times.

The death of Epstein — possibly the most high-profile and highly scrutinized prisoner in the country — lit social media ablaze, fueling rampant speculation and conspiracy theories.

Trump himself retweeted a baseless conspiracy that tried to connect Clinton to Epstein’s death, despite Barr saying in a statement that it was a suicide. Lynne Patton, a senior Housing and Urban Development official, suggested on Instagram that Hillary Clinton was responsible — also without any evidence.

The New York City medical examiner performed an autopsy of Epstein, but said its determination is “pending further information at this time.”

Thirty feared killed in arson attack on Japanese animation studio

An aerial view shows firefighters battling fires at the site where a man started a fire after spraying a liquid at a three-story studio of Kyoto Animation Co. in Kyoto, western Japan.

Thirty people were feared dead in an arson attack on a Japanese animation studio on Thursday, authorities said, after a man was seen shouting “die” as he doused the building with fuel in the nation’s worst mass killing in nearly two decades.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called the fire in the city of Kyoto – the latest grisly killing in a country known for its low crime rates – “too appalling for words” on Twitter and offered condolences to the victims’ families.

Police arrested a 41-year-old man who had shouted “die” as he poured what appeared to be petrol around the three-storey Kyoto Animation building shortly after 10 a.m. (0100 GMT), public broadcaster NHK reported.

Twenty people were confirmed dead and about 10 were showing no vital signs, an official for the Kyoto City Fire Department said, a term authorities often use before a death has been confirmed by a doctor.

White and black smoke billowed from the building’s charred windows, television footage showed.

It was Japan’s worst mass killing since a suspected arson attack on a Tokyo building in 2001.

“I heard the sound of fire engines and stepped outside my house and saw big flames spewing out of the building,” NHK quoted a 16-year-old boy as saying.

“Fire department officials were trying to rescue the injured in a nearby park but it seemed like there weren’t enough of them,” he said.

The prime minister said the cause was arson.

“Today, many people were killed and wounded in an arson murder case in Kyoto,” Abe said in a post on Twitter.

“It is too appalling for words.”

'My life has no meaning.' Man whose family was killed in 737 Max crash slams Boeing

Paul Njoroge, representing the families of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, testifies before a House Transportation and Infrastructure Aviation Subcommittee hearing on “State of Aviation Safety” in the aftermath of two deadly Boeing 737 MAX crashes since October, in Washington D.C., July 17, 2019.

A man whose family was killed in the crash of a Boeing 737 Max in Ethiopia in March slammed the manufacturer and told lawmakers at a congressional hearing Wednesday to scrutinize the Federal Aviation Administration, which approved the now-grounded planes two years ago.

Paul Njoroge lost his wife, three small children and his mother-in-law on Nairobi-bound Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, a Boeing 737 Max 8 that crashed minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa, killing all 157 people on board. It followed the crash of another Boeing 737 Max, Lion Air Flight 610 in Indonesia, in October. All 189 people on that flight were killed.

The twin crashes prompted aviation officials around the world to ground the jets in mid-March. Investigators have implicated an anti-stall system in both crashes. Boeing has developed a fix for the software to make it less aggressive and give pilots greater control of the aircraft, a newer version of Boeing’s workhorse 737 that’s been flying since the 1960s. Regulators have not said when they will allow the planes to fly again.

The House aviation panel is hearing from Njoroge as well as well as union officials representing pilots, mechanics and flight attendants at its third hearing on the 737 Max crashes.

“I miss their laughter, their playfulness, their touch,” Njoroge said of his family in written testimony. “I am empty. I feel that I should have been on that plane with them. My life has no meaning. It is difficult for me to think of anything else but the horror they must have felt.”

Lawmakers have not yet questioned Boeing officials, engineers or whistleblowers, and Njoroge urged the House panel to do so.

Police: 12 people killed in Virginia Beach shooting

A longtime, disgruntled city employee opened fire at a municipal building in Virginia Beach on Friday, killing 11 people before police fatally shot him, authorities said.

Six other people were wounding in the shooting, including a police officer whose bulletproof vest saved his life, said Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cervera.

Five patients were being treated at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital and a sixth was being transferred to the Trauma Center at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Sentara Healthcare tweeted.

The shooter opened fire in Building 2 of the municipal center, which is adjacent to City Hall. The building houses the city’s public works, public utilities and planning departments, according to City Councilwoman Barbara Henley, who arrived at City Hall building about 4 p.m. Friday just after the shooting.

Megan Banton, an administrative assistant who works in the building where the shooting happened, said she heard gunshots, called 911 and barricaded a door.

“We tried to do everything we could to keep everybody safe,” she said. “We were all just terrified. It felt like it wasn’t real, like we were in a dream. You are just terrified because all you can hear is the gunshots.”

She said she texted her mom, telling her that there was an active shooter in the building and she and others were waiting for police. Banton works in an office of about 20 people that is part of the public works department.

“Thank god my baby is OK,” Banton’s mother, Dana Showers, said.

Cervera identified the shooter as a disgruntled employee of the Public Utilities Department. He did not release his name.

Christina Pullen, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Norfolk, said the bureau is assisting.

Accused New Zealand mosque shooter charged with terrorism

50 people were killed and dozens injured after a gunman opened fire on two Christchurch mosques.

New Zealand’s police on Tuesday filed a terrorism charge against the man accused of killing 51 people at two Christchurch mosques.

Australian Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, was already facing murder and attempted murder charges from the March 15 shootings.

The new charge comes with a maximum penalty of life imprisonment upon conviction and will be a test case for New Zealand’s terrorism law, which came onto the books in 2002 following the terrorist attacks in the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001.

The New Zealand law defines terrorism as including acts that are carried out to advance an ideological, political, or religious cause with the intention of inducing terror in a civilian population.

Just before the attacks, Tarrant emailed New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and others a manifesto outlining his white supremacist beliefs and his detailed plans for the shootings.

From the outset, Ardern has described the attacks as terrorism.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush said in a statement they wouldn’t be commenting on the new charges as the case was before the courts.

A judge last month ordered that Tarrant undergo mental health assessments to determine if he’s fit to stand trial.

His next court hearing has been scheduled for June 14, and the mental health findings could determine whether he is required to enter a plea at that point.

Police also said Tuesday they had charged Tarrant with an additional count of murder, bringing the total number of murder charges against him to 51. That came after a Turkish man who was wounded in the attack died earlier this month in Christchurch Hospital.

Police also increased the number of attempted murder charges against Tarrant from 39 to 40.

Aside from those who died, at least 47 other people were treated at hospitals for gunshot wounds. Some had minor injuries and were discharged within hours.

Police told family members and attack survivors of the new charges at a private meeting attended by more than 200 people.

During the attacks, 42 people were killed at the Al Noor mosque, seven were killed at the Linwood mosque and two died later in hospitals.

China, US warn their citizens about traveling to Sri Lanka after bombings

China and the U.S. have warned their citizens about traveling to Sri Lanka after a series of explosions there on Easter Sunday killed nearly 300 people, including 32 foreigners.

The warnings come as a blow to Sri Lanka’s fast-growing tourism sector, which has already been hit by last year’s political turmoil.

A spate of bombings on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on Sunday killed 290 people and wounded more than 500 others. The country is under a state of emergency, and its capital, Colombo, is under curfew amid warnings of further attacks and fears of communal violence.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the attacks, but the authorities have blamed local militants with links to foreign networks.

On Tuesday, the Chinese embassy warned its citizens in Sri Lanka to stay away “in the near term” from crowded areas and pay attention to safety reminders.

“If Chinese citizens insist on going (to Sri Lanka) after this warning is issued, they will bring enormous security risks to their parties and make it difficult for the embassy to provide effective assistance,” the advisory said in Chinese.

The U.S. State Department on Sunday also issued an advisory that Americans should “exercise increased caution” in Sri Lanka. “Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Sri Lanka,” said the advisory, which cited tourist locations, markets, hotels, clubs and restaurants among possible targets.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said the aircraft maker was “humbled and learning” from an Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people earlier this month, the second fatal crash of its popular 737 Max plane in less than 5 months.

“We’ve stood shoulder to shoulder in partnership with the Ethiopian team to grieve and extend our deepest sympathies to the families, friends and communities of the passengers and crew,” Muilenburg wrote in a statement released Monday.

Ethiopian Airlines said on Monday it would maintain ties with the U.S. plane maker despite questions and an investigation into its 737 Max 8 model, which was also involved in the Lion Air crash that killed 189 people in October.

Boeing is under intense scrutiny as federal investigators look into whether the plane maker provided incomplete or misleading information about the model to U.S. air-safety regulators.
