He was murdered.

An autopsy found that financier Jeffrey Epstein sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings, deepening the mystery about the circumstances around his death.
Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple. Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said.
The details are the first findings to emerge from the autopsy of Epstein, a convicted sex offender and multimillionaire in federal custody on charges of sex trafficking. He died early Saturday morning after guards found him hanging in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan and he could not be revived.
Attorney General William P. Barr, whose department oversees the Bureau of Prisons facility where Epstein died, has described his death as an “apparent suicide.” Justice officials declined to comment on the new information from Epstein’s autopsy.
The office of New York City’s chief medical examiner, Barbara Sampson, completed an autopsy of Epstein’s body Sunday. But Sampson listed the cause of his death as pending.
Asked about the neck injuries, Sampson said in a statement that no single factor in an autopsy can alone provide a conclusive answer about what happened.
I don’t care what conclusion Bill Barr’s Bureau of Prisons eventually reach, I am telling you that Epstein was killed.
As you guys know I trained in marial arts for quite a number of years, and I also wrestled in high school.
I have used choke holds, headlocks, and pain compliance techniques over and over again.
I have never broken a neck, but I have broken a bone.
It requires some real force.
I can tell you that the muscles in the neck are quite powerful and very resistant to the kind of twisting that would be necessary to break a neck.
Movies that you see where somebody’s neck is broken with a simple twist to the side are bullshit, it takes a herculean effort to beak the bones in the neck.
And we are talking about the bones in the front of the neck where the Adams Apple is located and that would require either a hard impact in that location or the force from being strangled by somebody pushing their thumbs into that particular place.
In order to do the same from a hanging you would need a hard drop from some height and with something strong enough to handle the sudden jerk at the end.
Reember that Fox news interview with a former inmate who was held in the same facility as Epstein?
Here is what he said:
There’s no way that man could have killed himself. I’ve done too much time in those units. It’s an impossibility.
Between the floor and the ceiling is like eight or nine feet. There’s no way for you to connect to anything.
You have sheets, but they’re paper level, not strong enough. He was 200 pounds — it would never happen.
Could he have done it from the bed? No sir. There’s a steel frame, but you can’t move it. There’s no light fixture. There’s no bars.
So tell me, how in the fuck was Epstein able to kill himself with paper thin sheets, in a room with nowhere to tie them off, and in such a way that it broke the bones in the front of his neck?
I tell you he could not have accomplished that on his own.
He was murdered.
P.S. Oh and by the way Epstein’s body was just claimed by an “unidentified associate.”
I can guarantee you that there will be no further forensic examinations now.
