Lawyers Asked For End To Epstein’s Suicide Watch

Raw Story reports:

A new report form the Wall Street Journal claims that attorneys for billionaire accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein asked that their client be taken off suicide watch.

The Journal’s sources did not explain the reason for the attorneys’ request, which was reportedly made less than a week after Epstein was placed on suicide watch after he was found unconscious in his cell with marks around his neck.

The Journal also reports that “jail officials apparently failed to follow several protocols” in the hours leading up to Epstein’s death, thus “leaving him alone and with minimal supervision.”

The WSJ report is behind their paywall.
