That is interesting. I worked in a jail. Been in many (as an employee). 🙂 They improve architecture all the time to reduce tie off points, but people with lots of time on their hands are creative. A person can actually “hang” themselves sideways on the floor to the point of cutting off the airway. But the broken bones are interesting. Not a doctor, so I really can’t comment on that. But it does sound odd.

tRump Republicans, whose Conspericy Theories include how Hillary hired Space Aliens to murder Bill's opponents and bury them on the Dark side of the Moon, seem reluctant to wonder how one goes about strangling ones' self using paper products.


Perhaps the snoflake wing of the Party has convinced the GOPerBase it was a case of Epstein holding his breath until he turned blue AND DIED.


No surprise - these are the folks who think China's paying the tariffs (that ate all their tax reductions).

Autopsy finds Jeffrey Epstein had several broken neck bones



Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy determined the convicted pedophile suffered multiple broken neck bones, according to a report.


One of Epstein’s breaks was to the hyoid bone, an injury that experts told the Washington Post is more common in homicide victims.


The discoveries were disclosed to the paper by two people familiar with the findings of the autopsy, which was completed on Sunday, but warranted more information by the Medical Examiner’s Office before they make a final cause of death ruling.


“Today, a medical examiner performed the autopsy of Jeffrey Epstein,” said Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson in a statement Sunday night.


“The ME’s determination is pending further information at this time. At the request of those representing the decedent, and with the awareness of the federal prosecutor, I allowed a private pathologist (Dr. Michael Baden) to observe the autopsy examination. This is routine practice.”

Sampson’s office didn’t answer a request for comment from the Washington Post about the injuries.


Epstein was found dead of an apparent suicide in his cell at the Manhattan Correctional Center early Saturday. He was being held there without bail since his July arrest on sex trafficking charges.


The Washington Post spoke to Jonathan Arden, president of the National Association of Medical Examiners, who said a broken hyoid bone — which is near the Adam’s apple — is more common in strangulation murders than suicidal hangings.


“If, hypothetically, the hyoid bone is broken, that would generally raise questions about strangulation, but it is not definitive and does not exclude suicidal hanging,” said Arden, who is not involved with the Epstein autopsy.


Numerous studies were also cited by the paper that found hyoid bone breaks were found in the minority of suicidal hangings. One such study conducted from 2010 to 2013 that looked at suicidal hangings in India found that hyoid damage was present in just 16 of 264 cases.



Comment :


Reports are there cells are basically concrete boxes, the beds are bolted to the floor, Sheets and clothing are made of paper.


What did Epstein attach a noose to, what did he make a noose of,  how did he generate enough force to break bones in his neck.
