The warden of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan has been reassigned and two jail staffers were placed on leave following the death of Jeffrey Epstein last weekend in federal custody, the U.S. Department of Justice said Tuesday.

A DOJ spokeswoman said Attorney General William Barr had directed the Bureau of Prisons to “temporarily assign” the warden, identified by the BOP as Lamine N’Diaye, to a regional office, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the DOJ’s internal watchdog investigate Epstein’s apparent suicide while awaiting trial on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.
