New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday called for a “full investigation” into the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein while he was being held in a federal jail in Lower Manhattan.

Epstein, a prominent financier accused of trafficking girls for sex, apparently hanged himself in his jail cell Saturday, despite being in a protective unit with guards assigned to check on him every 30 minutes.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but something’s way too convenient here, and we need to get down to the bottom of what happened,” he told reporters after his appearance on the Des Moines Register Political Soapbox at the Iowa State Fair on Sunday.

On Saturday, after Epstein was found dead, de Blasio tweeted, “Jeffrey Epstein may have escaped his day in court, but if the wealthy predators involved in his sex ring think they just got away with it, they’re WRONG.”

“While a full investigation into how the federal government let this happen needs to be launched IMMEDIATELY, we won’t stop fighting for justice for every single victim,” he continued.
