A new twist has emerged in the death of Jeffrey Epstein, with a letter written by the Department of Justice revealing that Jeffrey Epstein was examined by a Doctor of Psychology and deemed well enough to be taken off suicide watch
A new twist has emerged in the death of Jeffrey Epstein, with the Department of Justice revealing that disgraced pedophile was removed from suicide watch by a doctoral-level psychologist before he hanged himself on August 10.
In a letter written to the House Judiciary Committee, which was obtained by Fox News on Friday, DOJ official Stephen E. Boyd wrote: ‘ The Department can confirm that Mr. Epstein was placed on suicide watch in July.
‘Mr. Epstein was later removed from suicide watch after being evaluated by a doctoral-level psychologist who determined that a suicide watch was no longer warranted.’
It’s thought Epstein first tried to kill himself on July 23, when he was found unconscious in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center.
He was rushed to hospital, before returning to the prison, where he was put on suicide watch.
The DOJ letter did not reveal when he was examined by the doctoral-level psychologist.
Further, they did not name the psychologist – who, having attained a PhD doctorate – had achieved the highest possible level of education in their field.

Despite being taken off suicide watch, however, Epstein was not allowed to be left unattended in his cell, according to a bombshell report published in The Washington Post.
However, the paper reported that, while at least eight Bureau of Prisons staffers knew of this fact, such orders were ignored in the 24 hours before Epstein’s suicide.
The staffers reportedly included managers and low-level correctional officers alike.
Attorney General William Barr, who has ordered a probe into Epstein’s death, has already removed the director of the federal Bureau of Prisons and appointed a new director and deputy director since Epstein died 13 days ago.
Meanwhile, Fox also reports that the jail’s warden has been reassigned to a desk post at a regional office.
At least eight prison officials were ordered to assure Epstein wasn’t left unattended in his cell, yet they ignored the strict rules, leading to the pedophile’s shocking suicide on August 10
Two guards who were supposed to be monitoring Epstein on the night of his suicide have also been placed on administrative leave.
Despite Barr’s changes, he has dampened conspiracy theories that Epstein may have been murdered in his prison cell, by claiming that he believes the pedophile did, in fact, take his own life.
‘I have seen nothing that undercuts the finding of the medical examiner that this was a suicide,’ Barr said to reporters Wednesday.
‘Epstein’s death, I think we will see, was a suicide and I do think there are some irregularities at the [Metropolitan Correctional Center,’ he said, as per ABC.
On Wednesday Attorney General William Barr confirmed that the investigation into Epstein’s death has not produced any information that contradicts the medical examiner’s report that his death was a suicide
JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S PRISON GUARDS HIRE LAWYERS AS THEIR UNION BOSS BLAMES FUNDING
The prison guards who failed to check on Jeffrey Epstein in the hours before he was found dead in his cell on Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan have reportedly obtained legal counsel.
At the same time, the guards’ union boss is calling out President Trump and his administration for ignoring their demands for funding, and stating that an incident like this one that happened this weekend was inevitable.
Serene Gregg, the president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 3148, said that funding cuts have left the prison with less than 70 percent of the guards needed to adequately staff the facility, which has resulted in overworked guards who are incapable of performing their duties to the best of their abilities.
Gregg went on to reveal that some of the individuals who have been tasked with checking in inmates are not even guards, but work instead as counselors or teachers and have been forced to assume new responsibilities.
‘It’s daunting, mentally, physically. I would feel confident in saying that some of that contributed to the unfortunate death of inmate Epstein,’ said Gregg.
She added: ‘You have people working who are extremely exhausted and others who are not trained to do the work,’ said Gregg.
‘They have been playing a dangerous game for a long time. And it’s not just at MCC, it’s going on across the country.’
