A source has revealed that Attorney General William Barr personally questioned the last inmate that Jeffrey Epstein shared a cell with before his suicide.

The sex offender commit suicide in August, 2019 by hanging himself by a cloth tied to a bed frame. His cellmate, Efrain “Stone” Reyes, had been moved to a different correctional facility the day before, raising investigators’ suspicions about the suicide even further.

According to Reyes’ niece, he was moved from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan to a private facility in Queens where cooperating witnesses were being held.

After the suicide, Reyes was called in for multiple meetings with investigators, including Barr. According to a source for the New York Daily News who befriended Reyes while they were both held in the Queens facility, he was questioned about the staff at the Metropolitan Correctional Center and how they were treating inmates.

Barr wanted to know the truth about what was going on in there. Barr told him, ‘I owe you a favor, thank you for telling us the truth.’

Reyes stayed at the Queens correctional facility until last April, when he tested positive for coronavirus. He was eventually released and passed away in his mother’s apartment in November.

Epstein’s accused accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, was arrested this past summer and is currently being held in isolation. She has pleaded not guilty to eight federal counts related to helping Epstein.
