1-Epstein autopsy performed; Guards worked extreme overtime
An autopsy has been performed on Jeffrey Epstein, but officials have not released a cause of death because the medical examiner needs more information. Meanwhile, the high-security correctional facility where the politically-connected financier died in an apparent suicide has fallen under scrutiny. Correctional officers who worked in a special unit inside the New York City jail that housed Epstein had worked extreme overtime shifts to compensate for staffing shortages, according to reports Sunday. The Associated Press cited an unnamed source in a Sunday report that said the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s Special Housing Unit was staffed with a single guard working a fifth straight day of overtime and another who was working mandatory overtime.

2-FBI, Justice Department throw extra manpower at Epstein case
The FBI and and the Justice Department’s inspector general office have devoted additional resources toward investigating Epstein’s death. Attorney General William Barr is taking a hands-on role in the investigation, according to the Wall Street Journal, and has asked Deputy FBI Director David Bowdich to brief the deputy attorney general every three hours. Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found unconscious last month with bruising on his neck, but he was taken off the watch at the end of July. The Justice Department was told Epstein would be monitored by a guard every half-hour and would be housed with a cellmate, an official with knowledge into the investigation told the AP. However, the cellmate recently had been transferred, allowing him to be housed alone, a violation of jail protocol, officials told the New York Times. At the time of his death, Epstein was facing 45 years in prison on sex trafficking charges, accused of sexually abusing dozens of young girls between 2002 and 2005.
