During Jeffrey Epstein’s 2008 stint at the Palm Beach County Jail, he once bought two small pairs of women’s panties, The Miami Herald reported Saturday.
It’s unclear why Epstein made the bizarre purchases, or why he was permitted to buy them.
The panties were among hundreds of purchases — most of them mundane — that Epstein made during his 13-month jail sentence.
Epstein spent roughly $2,000 at the jail’s commissary on items like coffee, snacks, shampoo, and toothpaste.

The financier Jeffrey Epstein once bought two pairs of small women’s panties from the commissary at the Palm Beach jail more than a decade ago, The Miami Herald reported Saturday, citing newly obtained purchase logs.

The panties were size 5, and among hundreds of purchases he made over the course of his 13-month jail stint for soliciting sex with a minor, the newspaper reported.

It’s unclear why Epstein made the bizarre purchases, or why he was permitted to buy them.

Epstein died by suicide last Saturday at a Manhattan jail, where he was being held on charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy. A medical examiner found that he hanged himself inside his cell, setting off a furor over the jail’s conditions and why Epstein was removed from suicide watch just weeks earlier.

The accused sex trafficker was previously incarcerated at the Palm Beach County Jail for 13 months beginning in 2008, but spent much of his stint at his office after a widely criticized work-release deal brokered with the sheriff.

Epstein spent six days per week and 12 hours per day at his office, supervised by off-duty deputies.

Most of his other commissary purchases were more mundane, including 800 single-serve cups of coffee, …read more

Quakes suffer second straight loss

Chris Wondolowski became a 10-goal scorer for the 10th straight season, but Sporting Kansas City rallied to for a 2-1 victory in Kansas City, Kansas, to send the Quakes to their second straight loss.

San Jose (11-9-5) is winless in its past three games following a four-game winning streak.

Sporting KC (8-11-7) snapped a two-game skid and won for just the second time in their last six games.

Leading the comeback was Graham Smith, who scored his first MLS goal in the 76th minute. Benny Feilhaber connected in the 50th minute for Sporting Kansas City.

Smith tapped in a rebound from point-blank range to make it 2-1. Johnny Russell’s free kick from just outside the area was parried by goalkeeper Daniel Vega, but Smith, a 23-year-old defender in his ninth MLS appearance, first-timed a side-footer into a wide-open net.

Wondolowski gave San Jose a 1-0 lead in the 25th, heading a corner kick by Cristian Espinoza off the far post and into the net. The 36-year-old Wondolowski has an MLS-record 154 career goals.

Adams Jr., Alouettes come from behind to beat Stampeders in overtime

CALGARY — Quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. ran for a pair of one-yard touchdowns in overtime to lead the Montreal Alouettes to a thrilling 40-34 win over the Calgary Stampeders at McMahon Stadium on Saturday.

In the first overtime, Reggie Begelton scored his fourth touchdown of the game for the Stampeders (5-4) when he caught a seven-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Nick Arbuckle.

After Calgary failed to complete the two-point convert, the Alouettes (4-4) scored on their possession when Adams plunged one yard into the end zone. The Als also didn’t complete the two-point convert, which forced a second overtime.

Adams then ran for another one-yard TD as Montreal went first in the second overtime. Although Adams couldn’t find an open receiver in the end zone for a two-point convert, the Alouettes defence stopped the Stamps during their possession to secure Montreal’s first win in Calgary since July 1, 2009 — ending a nine-game losing streak at McMahon Stadium.

Jake Wieneke and Eugene Lewis caught touchdown passes from Adams, while Boris Bede kicked three field goals for the Alouettes.

Rene Paredes kicked two field goals and added a single for the Stampeders.

Before the game even started, tempers flared between players on both teams as injured Calgary linebacker Wynton McManis had words with former Stampeder and current Montreal cornerback Tommie Campbell at mid-field during warmups.

After both Campbell and McManis traded punches, several other players including Calgary running back Don Jackson and Montreal defensive back Jarnor Jones got involved in the skirmish before cooler heads prevailed.

Montreal opened the scoring at 4:53 of the first quarter thanks to a …read more
