Again, the autopsy has not been released. The broken bones thing is attributed to anonymous sources. MSM is being careful in their reporting that information is unconfirmed. Click bait news- not so much.

Epstein’s death is meaningless. No certainty he would ever testify or be honest if he did.

No one knows if there are tapes being stored in vaults or clouds anywhere in the world. No one knows who controls the tapes if they exist. Imagine those who engaged at Epstein’s properties are and will remain very, very concerned. The hits could be dribbled out for decades.

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.
You're making a lot of assumptions.

There is no official word on what was in the cell at the time of his death. We don't even know what kind of sheets were in the cell.

I'm simply saying that the unconfirmed reports coming out right now are still consistent with someone hanging themselves.

Lets wait for some official information before making any conclusions.

It's also more common in hangings for older people vs. younger people.

If it exists, it's an extortion gold mine!

Seems someone didn't want him to tell his story.
Someone perhaps with sway over the jail, as in the DOJ?

No certainty he would have testified or if he did, would be honest. Suddenly a convicted large scale sex offender is going to tell the truth and the whole truth? I think not. No way he was going to get the sweet deal he got in Florida in 2008. His life as he knew it, was over.

I don't know who did it. I know someone powerful and well connected in our government did it. Or I strongly suspect they did because no other explanation makes sense.

But I want an independent investigation - from outside our government - to do it.

The Today show had their "medical expert" weigh in, after starting with how suspicious this broken bone was.

He said it happened in about 1/3 of strangulations and 1/4 of suicides.

so an 8% greater likelihood.
