To the Jeffrey Epstein case we've been keeping you updated lots of questions and an investigation around the registered sex offenders death by suicide so. I want to bring an air and deter ski again who broke the story. Of his death and he's been keeping us. I'm a bigger all of the details. You know Aaron and now all authorities are saying they're gonna start looking at his inner circle and bears expected to raided his apartment on the US Virgin Islands has home. Did the FBI and NYPD detective showed up at his compound as Ireland compound in the US Virgin Islands. Within hours of the attorney general William Barr saying that any conspirators co conspirators. Would face criminal charges and so now. They're looking for evidence of of others who may have been in an inner circle and who may have participated in at stands alleged sex trafficking. Now remember these allegations surfaced fourteen years ago so for the feds to go in now. Thinking they're going to find something useful in that regard.

And we've also heard that their may have been cameras in the cell block not necessarily trained on his cell. And there's a real question whether there's any.
