Leading Forensic Pathologist Goes Fox & Destroys “Suicide” Narrative: Says Only 1% of Hanging Deaths Result in Broken Hyoid Bone
Dr. Cyril Wecht sat down with Kennedy on FOX Business Network to talk about recently deceased financier/pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy results.
Washington Post reports:
An autopsy found that financier Jeffrey Epstein suffered 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 multi millionaire 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.
Dr. Wecht, who is both a doctor and lawyer, explained to Kennedy that a Montreal study found that only 2 out of 239 hanging deaths showed a broken Hyoid bone, which is equal to less than 1% of those who lose their lives.
The highest profile inmate in the United States prison system managed to sustain broken bones in his neck, including a broken Hyoid bone, which is most common in strangulation deaths.
Wecht went on to say that all the prisoners in the MCC on Epstein’s floor should be questioned regarding his death.
“Earlier today Dr. Mark Siegel told Bulls and Bears on FOX Business Network thatthe hyoid bone might break in strangulation about one-third to one-half of the time. In suicide, hanging, it might break 6-10% of the time,” reports TGP.
JUST IN: NYC Medical Examiner Says ‘Determination of Epstein’s Death is Pending Further Information at This Time’
Recently deceased sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy was supposed to be released Sunday evening, but now, all of a sudden after looking at the body, the NYC medical examiner said the determination of his death is pending further information. They cannot conclusively say he died of hanging by suicide just yet. This is huge.
“The New York City Medical Examiner Says the “determination is pending further information at this time” as to Jeffrey Epstein’s death” according to NBC News.
There is no surveillance video of Epstein’s apparent suicide according to many sources familiar with the prison setup. How convenient. Jeffrey Epstein was the most high profile prisoner in the US system with connections to the world’s elite, yet there were no cameras pointing directly into his prison cell??
NEW: Multiple briefed on the Epstein investigation tell NBC News that suicide remains the presumed cause of death.
The ongoing FBI investigation may further inform the M.E.'s office which will allow them to make a determination with complete confidence. Reported w @jonathan4ny

Epstein reportedly hanged himself early Saturday morning shortly after being taken off of suicide watch?
This smells like rotten fish in Denmark.
Epstein was found dead just one day after records were unsealed implicating top Democrats and world elites including Prince Andrew.
Former president Bill Clinton was also a close pal of Epstein’s and flew on the ‘Lolita Express’ more than two dozen times.
Shortly after Epstein’s death was made public, #ClintonBodyCount began to trend on Twitter. The Clintons were immediately blamed for Epstein’s ‘suicide.’
Many close to Epstein fear he was murdered and one former MCC inmate even said there is “no way” Epstein killed himself.
Via The New York Post:
There’s no way that man [Epstein] 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.
When you’re on suicide watch, they put you in this white smock, a straight jacket. They know a person cannot be injurious to themselves.
The clothing they give you is a jump-in uniform. Everything is a dark brown color.
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.
Suicide still remains the presumed cause of death, reported NBC News.
