Transcript for New questions emerge in Jeffrey Epstein suicide
midst of all this. So easily unavoidable. More on Jeffrey Epstein's death. Footage from at least one camera outside his jail cell is unusable. Diane Macedo is at the federal courthouse here in Manhattan with the latest on this, good morning, Diane. Reporter: Good morning, Cecilia. Surveillance video may be critical to this probe into how Epstein died while in custody at New York's Manhattan correctional center beside us. But "The Washington post" is now reporting this new setback. A source close to the investigation or sources close to the investigation tell the paper that footage from one of the cameras in the hallway outside Epstein's cell is unusable. Now, it's not clear why it's unusable or what is visible in the usable footage but this is just another failure uncovered at the prison. It was already reported that the guards were supposed to check on him every 30 minutes, yet no one had been by his cell for hours. He also wasn't supposed to be left alone and yet no cell mate was assigned. The convicted sex offender was arrested in July on sex trafficking charges for alleged crimes dating back more than a decade. While the criminal case against Epstein is over, alleged co-conspirators are still under scrutiny. They are, Diane. It's a big day in the court behind you. Epstein -- the prosecutors are formally going to dismiss their case against him in the wake of his death but not before we hear from some of his accusers. Reporter: It is. The judge in the case is allowing accusers to say their piece here today in court and while the criminal case against Epstein will be over, the legal battle, Cecilia, is not. Several accusers have already filed civil cases against Jeffrey Epstein's estate and several more say they plan to, so expect to hear much more on the case going forward, Cecilia. Still going, Diane Macedo, thank you.
