Disgraced American financier Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself in his prison cell earlier in August, was removed from suicide watch before he took his own life, the US Justice Department reported on Friday August 23rd. Department officials cited a psychologist in the report.

The psychologist has been working at the same New York federal detention center where Epstein was imprisoned.

This was shown in a letter dated on Thursday August 22nd, and sent to Reuters on the following day.

Epstein awaited trial on sex-trafficking charges. He hanged himself, according to autopsy results.
