Who Is Shirley Skipper-Scott? New Details On Warden Of Jeffrey Epstein Prison Reassigned After Suicide

Jeffery Epstein was a sexual predator. He was a registered sex offender, who assaulted underage women. He was in prison awaiting trial for sex trafficking. He was put on suicide watch after an attempt to hang himself on July 23. After just one week he was taken off suicide watch. On August 10th, 2019 Jefferey Epstein committed suicide. The warden in charge of the correction center where he was incarcerated is now under scrutiny. She was temporarily relocated as the details surrounding Epstein's death are looked into. Who is Shirley Skipper-Scott? 

1. Who is Jeffery Epstein?

Jeffery Epstein was a registered sex offender before he came to the Metropolitan Correctional Center. He was indicted back in 2007 for inviting underage girls back to his home for massages, and ended up masturbating and having sex with them. He ended up serving only 13 months in prison, thanks to a deal signed by Alexander Acosta, who is now the Secretary of Labor under president Trump. 

In July of this year, Epstein was arrested for sex trafficking. He was said to have recruited young girls to his homes in New York and Palm Beach and abused them. If convicted he would face up to 45 years in prison.

2. His time in prison.

Just a short time into his stay in MCC, Epstein was found injured in a suicide attempt. It appears that Epstein, who was taken off of suicide watch just one week later, was left alone for multiple hours, without being checked on. It was required protocol for Epstein to be checked on periodically, with each visit logged by the guards who saw him. Security footage shows that some of these logs were falsified in the hours surrounding Epstein's death. Some authorities believe he was dead for hours before he was discovered. 

The day before his suicide, Epstein's cell mate posted bail. This left Epstein alone in his cell. The guard on duty was a temporary employee and not part of Epstein's regular detail. Another indication of influenced opportunity.

3. Protocol not followed

Attorney General Bill Barr has released a statement commenting on the prison inadequately following protocol. He said: "We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation.” And as promised, the investigation is underway. And as for anyone who may have been complicit in the suicide of Jefferey Epstein, Barr said the case will continue against them. "Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice and they will get it."

4. Skipper-Scott's work history

Skipper-Scott worked all over the country at different government facilities. She worked in Puerto Rico, Yazoo City, Mississippi; Big Spring, Texas and Coleman, Florida. She was assigned to work at the Metropolitan Correction Center in 2017, making $127,218 a year. Many media outlets have listed Skipper-Scott to be the acting warden, she only briefly held that post, and at the time of Epstein's death, she was the associate warden. 

5. Death reported too early!!!

4Chan is an antonymous message board where people post pictures and memes, and is popular among both anime lovers and the alt-right. Buzzfeed News reported that at 8:16 am on the day Epstein died, someone posted "Don't ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago,". This cryptic message was posted to 4chan 38 minutes before ABC News broke the story. Deputy Press Secretary Myles Miller told USA Today that the FDNY reviewed the post and determined it did not come from inside the department.

6. Warden: Transferred. 

Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said: “Today, the Attorney General directed the Bureau of Prisons to temporarily assign the warden at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York to the Bureau’s Northeast Regional Office pending the outcome of the FBI and OIG investigations into the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, a former MCC inmate.” In the meantime, James Petrucci has been assigned as the acting warden of the facility. Aside from Skipper-Scott, two other MCC staff that were assigned to Epstein's unit were placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
