Two jail guards charged over Jeffrey Epstein death

Tova Noel and Michael Thomas were charged with making false records and conspiracy in connection with their actions at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in downtown Manhattan, where Jeffrey Epstein, a well-connected money manager, was found unresponsive in his cell on Aug.

10th.

His suicide came a little over a month after he was arrested and charged with trafficking dozens of underage girls as young as 14 from at least 2002 to 2005.

Epstein had pleaded not guilty.

Lawyers for Noel and Thomas could not immediately be located.

According to the indictment, the two failed to properly monitor Epstein in the final hours before he killed himself, and no guard checked on Epstein in the eight hours before he was found unresponsive.

Noel and Thomas appeared to have fallen asleep for two hours while on duty, and spent some of their waking hours surfing the internet, the indictment said.

An autopsy concluded that Epstein had hanged himself.

Both Epstein’s brother and the lawyers who represented him in his criminal case have expressed doubts about the medical examiner’s conclusion.

According to the prison bureau, the last inmate suicide at the facility was in 2006.

Epstein had been taken off suicide watch shortly before his death.

Epstein’s estate, which according to his will is worth $577 million, is now the target of civil lawsuits by more than a dozen of his alleged victims - the latest of whom stepped forward in a press conference Monday.
