Medical officials complete Jeffrey Epstein autopsy, but details yet to be released

United States Attorney Geoffrey Berman during a news conference about the arrest of American financier Jeffrey Epstein in New York USA 08 July 2019

According to the charges - which Epstein denied - the girls, some as young as 14, were given hundreds of dollars for sex acts.

Epstein's abrupt death Saturday cut short a criminal prosecution that could have pulled back the curtain on the inner workings of a high-flying financier with connections to celebrities and presidents, though prosecutors have vowed to continue investigating.

Epstein had pleaded not guilty, but his request for bail had been refused.

Jennifer Araoz, who came forward after the charges were filed in July, said she was angered by Mr Epstein's suicide. Baden was the city's chief medical examiner in the late 1970s and has been called as an expert witness in high-profile cases, including O.J. Simpson's 1995 murder trial.

An autopsy was performed earlier in the day on the disgraced financier found unresponsive on Saturday in a New York City jail, chief medical examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson said. Suicide still remains Epstein's presumed cause of death, however, according to a number of individuals briefed on the investigation.

The Daily Mail also reported the raids on its website.

Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found in his cell a little over two weeks ago with bruises on his neck, a person familiar with the jail's operations told The Associated Press.

The latest Realme 5 series smartphones will have a waterdrop notch in their displays similar to the Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro . The Oppo sub-brand has also claimed that the primary sensor on this device would come with excellent low light capabilities.

The Times did not say why it could not identify the source of information on the medical examiner's likely determination of the cause of death.

Hundreds of pages of court documents unsealed on Friday - one day before Epstein's death - included new details of the sexual abuse claims against the multimillionaire, including allegations by a woman that she was forced to have sex with Epstein's powerful friends. Epstein was housed at the MCC federal lockup with the 51-year-old former cop after his July arrest for sex trafficking, Tartaglione's attorney told Fox News on Monday.

His lawyers maintained that the new charges in NY were covered by the 2008 plea deal and that Epstein hadn't had any illicit contact with underage girls since serving his 13-month sentence in Florida.

Furthering the controversial circumstances surrounding his death, it was recently revealed that there is no surveillance video of Epstein supposedly hanging himself since the cameras in the 9 South wing where he was being held filmed the areas outside rather than inside the cells, according to the New York Post.

"(Legal) proceedings are not decided on by the government", she said, noting that since 2013 it is forbidden in France for a justice minister to give prosecutors instructions relating to individual investigations.

The statement said it was "fundamental" to launch an investigation in France so that Epstein's death "doesn't deprive the victims of the justice they deserve" and to protect other girls from "this kind of predator".

An FBI spokesperson wasn't immediately available for comment when contacted by AFP.
