U.S. Attorney General William Barr says the Department of Justice has found "serious irregularities" at the Manhattan jail where financier Jeffrey Epstein apparently killed himself over the weekend.

Media reports suggest Epstein was left unsupervised at the time of his death despite a prior suicide attempt in July.

Barr also said today that Epstein's death won't stop the investigations into his alleged sex trafficking of young women.
