AG Barr "Appalled" By Epstein's "Suicide", Orders Inspector General Probe Into Mysterious Death

With virtually everyone piling on the surreal news of "no longer on suicide watch" Jeffrey Epstein's murder "suicide" , including Rudy Giuliani and Rod Rosenstein, even as we patiently await to see whether Bill Clinton or Donald Trump will chime in first...

... moments ago Attorney General William Barr slammed the death of the wealthy financier pedophile in federal custody while he awaited charges on sex trafficking, saying the apparent suicide "raises serious questions."

“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," Barr said in a statement.

"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," Barr added.

While the facts surrounding Epstein's "suicide" have yet to be revealed, what is bizarre is that even though he was reportedly placed on suicide watch in late July after a possible suicide attempt when he was found unconscious in his jail cell with marks around his neck, reports Saturday indicated he was not on suicide watch at the time of his death.

What makes the "suicide" so unbelievable is that virtually everyone saw it coming... Except for the Bureau of Prisons apparently.

And speaking of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, it announced earlier Saturday morning that the FBI would investigate his death at the Manhattan jail where he was being held awaiting trial.

The Metropolitan Correctional Center, where Epstein was being held, has yet to offer any statements surrounding Epstein's death. 

In the statement earlier Saturday, the Bureau of Prisons said Epstein had been discovered in his cell about 6:30 a.m., and was taken to a nearby hospital where efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.
