Two guards on duty the night Jeffrey Epstein died in prison are in FBI custody Tuesday and will be brought to federal court in Manhattan to face charges that are expected to include falsifying records, a law enforcement official said.

The expected charges come more than three months after Epstein was found dead at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, a federal detention facility in lower Manhattan. He was awaiting trial on federal charges accusing him of operating a sex trafficking ring from 2002 to 2005 at his Manhattan mansion and his Palm Beach estate, and allegedly paying girls as young as 14 for sex. He had pleaded not guilty.

New York City’s chief medical examiner ruled his August 10 death a suicide by hanging, though a former medical examiner hired by Epstein’s legal team has disagreed with that conclusion.

The general opinion of the public is that Epstein did not kill himself and in fact was murdered so he would not implicate other wealthy, high profiled individuals in the ‘sex trafficking ring’.

Of the two officers who were responsible for watching Epstein the night he died, one was not a detention guard but was temporarily reassigned to that post. The guard, a man not identified by officials, had previously been trained as a corrections officer but had moved to another position.
The second staff member on Epstein duty was a woman fully trained as a guard, according to the person briefed on the matter. Both guards were working overtime shifts.
Rules at the Federal Bureau of Prisons allow people who work in other prison jobs, such as teachers and cooks, to be trained to fill in for posts usually manned by regular guards.
It is well known that the FBI is involved in this case and is seriously looking at a serious criminal enterprise.
