It was reported that convicted sex offender and close friend/ financer to high-profile rich people was found dead in prison. An autopsy was conducted on Sunday and here are the revelations about his sudden death.
Autopsy Does The Talking
The autopsy report released on Sunday disclosed that there were multiple cracks on his neck bone, according to the Washington Post. His hyoid bone near his Adam’s apple was completely shattered.
Apart from the report, he was found dead in the detention centre with a bedsheet around his neck. It raises questions on the mental stability of the 66-year-old criminal and the security inside the detention centre.
Expert Opinion On The Cracks
Experts say that the hyoid bone gets this badly smashed only in cases of strangulation, which would point to a homicide. But along with that, there is a major possibility of suicide. When men get to the middle age, their hyoid bone stiffens up and leads to a greater chance of breaking. This statement was confirmed by Jonathan L. Arden, President of the National Association of Medical Examiners, and he was not even involved in the autopsy. So it can be alleged that he killed himself under the watch of so many prison guards and other inmates.
Deeper Insights On The Suicide
Jeffery Epstein had sexually abused many women and underage girls. He was put in jail one more time in July 6, 2019, because of the alleged sex trafficking of minors. He had already served a thirteen-month long punishment back in 2009. During his time in prison this time, he was put under special observation because he was suspected for attempting suicide. Marks on his neck proved that he had a suicidal tendency. But he couldn’t be saved in spite of of the heavy security measures he was kept under.
However, Doesn’t this bring to notice the fact that Manhattan’s federal detention centre are highly understaffed. Many such conspiracy theories have been raged up and stirred a lot of questions since the man’s death in custody. Attorney General Bill Barr has pointed out some major irregularities in the centre in which Epstein was detained that are “deeply concerning”. His officials also demanded for a proper investigation and he urged the Department of Justice to get to the bottom of the situation, plus demanded accountability.
