The Federal Prison Service said earlier that on the morning of August 10, Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell and was later declared dead. The prison confirmed that he committed suicide on the evening of the 9th, and some media said that he died from hanging.

The Associated Press and other media also reported that on the last night of Epsteins life, prison staff was very short, one of the prison guards who supervised the billionaire had worked overtime for the fifth consecutive day, and another guard had been forced to work overtime that day. The prison guards did not conduct a mandatory 30-minute inspection of Epstein that night. At present, these two have been suspended.
