Lawyers who represented Epstein did not immediately respond on Friday to requests for comment. "It is indisputable that the authorities violated their own protocols".

Both were working overtime because of staffing shortages, the people said.

Officials have cautioned to CNN that they don't know what the staff members were doing during that time and are still trying to pin that down.

The Washington Post and The New York Times reported Thursday that the autopsy revealed that several bones in Epstein's neck had been broken, leading to speculation his death was a homicide.

Epstein had been alone in his cell when he was found hanging there.

Epstein was already a registered sex offender after pleading guilty in 2008 to Florida state charges of unlawfully paying a teenage girl for sex.

Last week, a 32-year-old woman filed a similar suit against Epstein's estate, saying he had sexually abused and raped her when she was a teenager. They shared a cell.

Jeffrey Epstein's cause of death was suicide by hanging, the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said Friday.

He was placed on suicide watch last month after an incident in which he was found on the floor of his cell July 23 with bruising on his neck.

Wednesday's standoff started when narcotics officers tried to serve an arrest warrant, but became pinned down by gunfire. Two police officers previously inside were "safely evacuated" by SWAT personnel, Gripp tweeted at around 9:30 p.m.


However, he was then taken off suicide watch.

The statement was conveyed by Aja Worthy-Davis, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner's office. The person could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Epstein, 66, was found dead at the Metropolitan Correctional Center on August 10, touching off outrage that such a high-profile prisoner could have gone unwatched.

US Attorney General William Barr said earlier this week that there were "serious irregularities" at the facility where Epstein was held. Attorney-General William Barr said the USA government will continue its investigation into any possible co-conspirators.

On Tuesday the New York Times reported that guards in the Special Housing Unit had allegedly fallen asleep on the night of Epstein's death.

The suit was filed Thursday in a federal court in NY.

Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2 said they were aspiring models working at a restaurant off Manhattan's Union Square when they were approached in June 2004 by an unnamed female "recruiter", identified as Sue Roe, who worked for Epstein. The other was 20.

Both plaintiffs said that despite Roe's assurances that Epstein would not subject them to unwanted touching, his conduct became aggressive during the massages, including that he forcefully touched their breasts and masturbated. The women say Epstein groped them anyway.

One plaintiff now lives in Japan, the other in Baltimore.
