Who let registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein purchase two pairs of small women’s underwear while he was servicing a 13-month sentence in Palm Beach County Jail for soliciting a minor for sex a decade ago?

That’s yet another question being asked now that the millionaire financier has died. The Miami Herald reported Saturday that Epstein’s purchase of panties too small to fit an adult woman was discovered after the outlet obtained “thousands of pages of records” from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

“It was just one of thousands of dollars of purchases made by the disgraced financier while in jail after pleading guilty in 2008 to soliciting a minor for sex, according to a purchase log. (His top purchase was single-serve cups of coffee, of which he bought more than 800 in 13 months,)” the outlet reported. “But the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman.”

The jail also held female inmates, which is why the underwear was available for purchase in the first place.

The purchase discovery was the latest problem for the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, which is already conducting an internal investigation into why Epstein was treated more like a wealthy “client” than a prisoner during his stint in the jail.

The Daily Wire previously reported that Epstein was driven to and from a job he worked as part of a work-release program. He spent 12 hours a day, six days a week working for his own nonprofit. During this time, Epstein paid the sheriff’s deputies who guarded him. They reportedly acted more like security guards than prison guards. The Washington Post reported that the deputies “were required to wear suits and to ‘greet inmate Epstein upon his arrival.’” They also referred to Epstein as “the client” or “Mr. Epstein,” rather than “the prisoner” or some variation.

Epstein was also allowed to visit his Palm Beach estate at least nine times, including once without supervision.

The Herald reported that things in Palm Beach got easier for Epstein as his sentence progressed. His six day work-release program was extended to seven days a week and he was able to spend 16 hours a day away from his cell instead of 12.

The Herald also reported that the Palm Beach investigation into how Epstein was treated while incarcerated “is separate from the Justice Department probe looking at why then-federal prosecutor Alexander Acosta decided to shelve a 53-page sex trafficking indictment against Epstein, which could have put him away for life.”

The outlet also reminded readers that there is a third investigation involving Epstein currently underway – this one looking into how Epstein was able to hang himself in his jail cell. Various reports indicate Epstein was taken off 24-hour suicide watch even though he had attempted suicide three weeks earlier. His cellmate was also reportedly transferred from the cell just hours before Epstein hanged himself, against prison protocol.
