U.S. Attorney General William Barr is said to have personally questioned Jeffrey Epstein’s final cellmate at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center following the deceased moneyman’s suicide.
The New York Daily News reported Monday that Barr questioned Efrain “Stone” Reyes, 51, who was moved out of Epstein’s cell just one day prior to Epstein taking his own life on August 10, 2019.
“Barr wanted to know about what was going on in there. Barr told him, ‘I owe you a favor, thank you for telling us the truth,’” an unnamed source told the Daily News.
“He said [Barr] was a good guy. Barr was nice about it. He just wanted to know if [inmates] were being mistreated. What [Reyes] believed happened. Just basically that. He told them everything. He cooperated with Barr,” the source added.
The news comes after Reyes was revealed to have died of coronavirus last month. Reyes was found dead on November 27 at his mother’s house,
