“We are not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner. We will have a more complete response in the coming days,” Epstein’s attorneys said in a statement Friday. “We plan to conduct our own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of Mr. Epstein’s death.”

The attorneys, Martin Weinberg, Reid Weingarten and Michael Miller, added their investigation will include “if necessary legal action to view the pivotal videos — if they exist as they should — of the area proximate to Mr. Epstein’s cell during the time period leading to his death.”

Here is their statement:

“First, no one should die in jail. And no one, not Mr. Epstein who was presumed innocent and had violated no prison disciplinary rule, and not anyone should be imprisoned under the harsh, even medieval conditions at the MCC where Mr. Epstein spent his final hours. His safety was the responsibility of the MCC. It is indisputable that the authorities violated their own protocols. The defense team fully intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of Mr. Epstein’s death including if necessary legal action to view the picotal videos – if they exist as they should – of the area proximate to Mr. Epstein’s cell during the time period leading to his death. We are not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner. We will have a more complete response in the coming days.

Martin G Weinberg, Reid Weingarten, Michael Miller”
