If the “broken bone in the neck” was the hyoid bone then he was almost certainly strangled. Hanging can break the hyoid but it takes a great deal of force and is highly unlikely to do with paper sheets.

That the Bill in a dress portrait hanging in Epstein’s house isn’t trending on twitter tells you all you need to know about twitter censoring their trends. If that was Trump in a dress it would be top trending and on every news channel. The double standard is real

Again. There is no report of the DOJ investigation of the 7/23 incident.

There is no official account about what happened in his cell when he died.

There is nothing factual about the contents of Epsteins cell or his attire.

Everything we know is based on hearsay, speculation and opinion. People have a tendency to latch on information that seems to validate and reinforce their perceptions.

When official investigation reports are made available, some wont believe them unless the information seems to validate and reinforce their perceptions.

Did you? The OP stated that the fracture is more common in homicide, which is exactly what the article states. Maybe you need to go back and read it yourself.

From the article: 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, or 6 percent.

He never reported being suicidal. But he did report that someone was trying to kill him. The investigation into his first apparent suicide attempt has not been released.

Anyone watch The Wire?
See the episode when DAngelo Barksdale, Avons soft nephew, was killed in prison and manipulated to appear he died from auto-asphyxiation gone wrong?
McNulty figured out after the fact that it was a murder no one bothered to really investigate...

We should ask McNulty to check out Epsteins death...
