"10 августа 2019 года Эпштейн был обнаружен мёртвым в своей камере предварительного заключения. По официальным сообщениям, причиной смерти является самоубийство.
The jail informed the Justice Department, when Epstein was placed in the special housing unit (SHU), that he would have a cellmate and that a guard would look into the cell every 30 minutes. These procedures were not followed on the night he died. On August 9, Epstein's cellmate[note 4] was transferred, and no replacement was brought in. The evening of his death, Epstein met with his lawyers, who described him as "upbeat" before being escorted back to the SHU at 7:49 PM by guard Tova Noel. CCTV footage shows that the two guards failed to perform the required institutional count at 10 PM and recorded Noel briefly walking by Epstein's cell at 10:30 PM, the last time the guards entered the tier where his cell was. Through the night, in violation of the jail's normal procedure, Epstein was not checked every 30 minutes. The two guards who were assigned to check his cell overnight, Noel and Michael Thomas, fell asleep at their desk[note 5] for about three hours and later falsified related records. Two cameras in front of Epstein's cell also malfunctioned that night. Another camera had footage that was "unusable".

Epstein's body being moved to the medical examiner's office
As the guards were distributing breakfast shortly after 6:30 AM on the morning of August 10, Epstein was found unresponsive in cardiac arrest in his cell, which was initially reported as apparent suicide. He was found in a kneeling position with a strip of bedsheet[note 6] wrapped around his neck. The sheet was tied to the top of his bunk. He is believed to have been dead for about two hours. The guards performed CPR on Epstein, and other prisoners heard them yell "Breathe, Epstein, breathe." At 6:33 AM, the guards pulled an alarm, notifying their supervisor, to whom Noel said, "Epstein hung himself." He was rushed to the New York Downtown Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 6:39 AM. His body was transported to the medical examiner's office soon after. The news of the death was posted on 4chan about 38 minutes before ABC News reported it. If it was posted by a first responder, as it has been speculated, it would likely be a violation of privacy law.
The removal of Epstein’s body from his cell was a violation of protocol, as the Bureau of Prisons mandates that a suicide scene be treated with the "same level of protection as any crime scene in which a death has occurred." Consequently, prison personnel also failed to photograph Epstein's body as it was found.
