An FBI crime lab is examining two cameras from outside the jail cell where Jeffrey Epstein was found dead after they reportedly "malfunctioned" during his death and their footage was "unusable."

Camera surveillance footage from outside Epstein's cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center from the night he died was deemed too "damaged" to be used by investigators.

According to Reutersciting a law enforcement source, the FBI is now using state-of-the-art forensic examination techniques to analyze the "broken" devices.

Clinton-linked sex offender Epstein was found dead on August 10 in his New York prison cell where he was being held awaiting trial on child sex trafficking charges.

The two cameras would have had a view into the jail cell where Epstein was found hanging by his bedsheet in what has officially been ruled a suicide.

According to Reuters, the cameras were sent to Quantico, Virginia - the site of a major FBI crime lab where agents and forensic scientists analyze evidence.

The Washington Post reported on Monday that at least one camera in the hallway outside Epstein’s cell had footage that was unusable.

The newspaper said there was other usable footage captured in the area.

Epstein's lawyers Reid Weingarten and Martin Weinberg told US District Judge Richard Berman, during a Tuesday court hearing, that they doubted their client committed suicide.

The attorneys argue that the pedophile's injuries were "far more consistent with assault" than hanging, according to Weingarten. 

According to CNBC, Weingarten cited the defense’s own medical sources.

Broken bones were found in Epstein’s neck during an autopsy after he died Aug. 10.

Such fractures are somewhat more common in cases of strangulation than in hanging.

Weingarten told the judge that when he and other defense attorneys spoke to Epstein shortly before his death “we did not see a despairing, despondent, suicidal person.”

Weingarten’s comments came during a proceeding where prosecutors were seeking the dismissal of child sex trafficking charges against the Epstein as a result of his death.

"We’re skeptical of the certitude," added the lawyers.

New York commentator Mike Krieger shared his incredulity on the matter also, saying, "They must be joking.

"Apparently TWO cameras malfunctioned outside of Epstein’s cell?

"This would be almost comical if it wasn’t so infuriating"

The 66-year-old financier was arrested on July 6 on charges of sex-trafficking minors and pleaded not guilty.

He was denied a request for pretrial release, after which he was found with injuries he says were inflicted by his cellmate, according to his attorneys. 

During Tuesday's hearing, 16 women testified that Epstein had sexually abused them.

Prosecutors say that while charges have been dropped against the dead pedophile, his potential co-conspirators are not out of hot water.
