Did you read it?
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...

The reports of broken bones in the neck/signs of strangulation are consistent with someone hanging themselves.
There is no “drop” for the physical force necessary in a prison cell—especially for someone as tall as Epstein
And the paper sheets certainly wouldn’t hold up for the physical force engendered...

This was a slow strangulation and you have to really want that to happen because it is so easy to stop before the oxygen level drops past the recovery point...

Someone watched “The Wire” and didn’t see McNulty solved that faux suicide.

I have to laugh at everyone expressing such anger this was allowed to happen without any anger expressed that his pedophilia was allowed to happen. I personally would like to thank the jail for allowing this to happen.

He wasn't killed because he's a pedophile. He was killed because he knows other powerful people who had sex with those young girls.

This isn't conclusive by any means but things are definitely getting curiouser and curiouser.

I understand that - but in the vain of possibly obtaining more info to get more of the preps, he would have been important in that regard.
