Attorney General William Barr was directly involved in the investigation of Jeffrey Epstein’s reported suicide, according to The New York Daily News.
Barr personally interrogated Epstein’s last cellmate after the billionaire pedophile was found dead in his cell, a source told The Daily News.

After Epstein’s mysterious death, the former Attorney General reportedly had Efrain “Stone” Reyes brought in for a private interrogation — a highly unusual move for a head of the Department of Justice.
“Barr wanted to know about what was going on in there. Barr told him, ‘I owe you a favor, thank you for telling us the truth,’” the source reportedly said.
“He said [Barr] was a good guy,” The New York Daily News reported the source said. “Barr was nice about it. He just wanted to know if [inmates] were being mistreated. What [Reyes] believed happened. Just basically that.”
“He told them everything,” the source said. “He cooperated with Barr.”
When asked about their report, Epstein’s attorney Reid Weingarten described it as a “real jaw dropper.”

“If in fact the attorney general personally interviewed Jeffrey’s prison drug-dealing roommate that would be a real jaw dropper … there are only a million levels between the a.g. And the fbi agent who should have done the interview (I am exaggerating but only by a little),” Weingarten reportedly said. “If it is true the question is why in the world was Barr so personally interested in what happened to my client?”
The report said Epstein and Reyes had a friendly relationship because the billionaire pedophile would supply his cellmate with drugs that cost “$500 a pop.”
“He paid for stuff for him to keep him occupied, you know? He’s had his problems with drugs,” the source said. “He had bragged that Jeff spent $500 — and another $500 — so he’d go to bed early.”
According to official sources, Epstein — who has been linked to some of the world’s most rich and powerful elites — died of suicide by hanging on August 10, 2019.
However, the official report on Epstein’s mysterious death was contested in October that year by famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, one of the most prestigious autopsy doctors in all of New York.

“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” Baden told Fox News in 2019.
“I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case.”
