Jail guards at the federal detention facility convicted pedophile Jeff Epstein committed suicide in are unsure why he appears strangled.
The first report of strangulation came when a famous forensic pathologist came forward to call out inconsistencies in autopsy photos. The photos showed broken bones in the neck of Epstein that are not consistent with a suicide but homicide.
Dr. Michael Baden said that such fractures are what one sees when force is applied to a neck, breaking it. When a suicide occurs, the pressure doesn’t effect this part of the neck, and thus a fracture of this bones is almost never possible.
“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” said Baden. “I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case.”
In suicidal hangings, the binding “usually goes up under the mandible — the jaw bone — which is a tough bone. It doesn’t fracture,” Baden explained.
Dr. Baden has worked on dozens of high profile autopsies over the past 5 decades of his career.
And just this month, it’s been revealed by the government that they accidently deleted video footage of the cell block epstein resided on.
It seems the answer as to what really happened to Jeff Epstein will never be known.
