Prosecutors said Tuesday two jail officers falsified records to cover up their failure to check in on Jeffrey Epstein.

Reuters reports an autopsy concluded that the accused sex offender hanged himself while in custody.

The indictment alleges Tova Noel and Michael Thomas fell asleep and surfed the internet instead of monitoring Epstein.

Epstein was found unresponsive on Aug. 10 in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.

His death came a little over a month after he was charged with trafficking dozens of underage girls from 2002 to 2005.
