An autopsy report has found that Jeffrey Epstein had multiple broken bones in his neck, according to Washington Post sources.
Barbara Sampson, New York City’s chief medical examiner said, “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.”
Jonathan Arden, president of the National Association of Medical Examiners, told The Post, that one of the broken bones in his neck was the hyoid bone.
This type of fracture can be associated with hanging and homicidal strangulation, but the latter is more commonly related.
Arden, who was not involved in the Epstein autopsy, said to The Post, “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,”
