Or perhaps the New York City Coroner's office is just as susceptible to corruption as so much of the rest of government across our country is.

Yes, they do. They do NOT have fricken paper sheets in their cells. They have actual sheets. No, they are not a high thread count, but they are still sheets.

As I said earlier, those bunk beds are not that tall. Even someone under 6' is not going to be able to hang themselves from that top bunk with their feet dangling in the air. I'm 5'5". I could not even hang myself with my feet dangling from the top bunk.

It's like people think that no prison has ever thought of these things in the past and didn't build their prisons, the cells, and what very little "furniture" (for lack of a better word) is available in the cell to prevent the inmates from using said "furniture" to do harm to themselves.

They were probably told by the Feds "he's an intelligence asset - let it be - for the good of the US"

Sigh...

One needn't hang from a long distance in order to die from "hanging".

Robin Williams committed suicide by hanging himself with a belt from a doorknob. According to the coroner's report, which is online, Williams was found in a seated position on the floor.

Kate Spade hanged herself with a scarf on a doorknob in her apartment.

Anthony Bourdain hanged himself with his bathrobe belt in the hotel bathroom where he was staying.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27687828

Epstein was 66 years old, and the elderly are more likely to suffer hyoid bone fractures, etc. in suicidal hanging.

"Had Jeffrey Epstein been only twice as old as his teenage victims, his hyoid bone would have remained so flexible that a fracture would have been a much stronger indication he had been strangled.

But at 66, the U-shaped bone between his chin and his Adamís apple likely would have become so brittle with age that it also could have been broken by hanging".

I accept this argument.

Many men prefer teen girls to more age-appropriate women. Only things that stops them from pursuing are fear of getting caught and most teen girls have no interest in older guys. I like to think most teen girls would not agree to give massages older guys, in exchange for $ hundreds.

Not much has been disclosed about the family life of the victims. Did anyone not notice their kid or sister was being picked up by private care and sometimes disappeared for weeks at a time. Were some runaways?

Nothing thus far suggests any of these teens were held against their will or were forced to perform acts or engage with partners not to their liking. Those who were willing to engage were popular and likely made more money than those who did not. Some became recruiters of other teens.

I am in no way defending the POS or any who chose to engage.
This is perhaps why the Feds seem to focus on transport across State lines and borders for the purpose of sexual relations.

I am more curious about the fact there were so many young women who likely didn't use any protection during sex. Surely, there must be at least one Jr out there who stands to gain a fortune if the mother steps forward.

More than likely. Like, how many times do we keep hearing unarmed Black men being shot by the cops, and they almost always get away with it. And judging by all the thumbs down on the MSM pages on youtube, looks like more people are not buying the official story, than those who are. Makes me happy to see we don't have so many sheep that believe everything the government tells them.

And you have to be a complete idiot to believe the crap story about "oh, he's 66 years old so his bones are all brittle at that age". Go to a rodeo or a ranch and watch how many elderly can be thrown from their horses, or trampled by a steer and have no broken bones. It's just not possible for a broken neck to happen, at all, with the way they claim he hung himself. It's all a giant, bs story, and anybody who is trying to defend this thing should be ashamed of themselves.

Yup, this happens, it's a well-known method.

More like death by strangulation than death by snapped neck as in a 'hang'em high' scenario.

But just as effective.

I will say you have to be pretty darned determined to die if you do it by strangling yourself. Imagine NOT trying to get that belt or whatever off your neck. But people obviously manage it.

Did he have help? I can think of certain kinds of help in this situation that would not be evident on autopsy. But unless we get some evidence of that, suicide seems like the correct call.

At this point, the way how even Trump, who usually can't stop tweeting about anything, and the majority of congress as well, have been uncharacteristically quiet about this whole thing.

Second, Monica was of legal age.

You are comparing a sex scandal with one man to a global pedo ring involving many people of power.
And you notice how the same ones focusing upon Clinton ignore all the reported attacks upon at least 20 women by the escapee-in-Chief, including at least one girl at Epstein's events, having done something with more than once.
