Renowned Medical-Legal Consultant Talks About Epstein’s Suicide On Fox News: I do not buy that (Video)

Even before his first suspected suicide try last month, Jeffrey Epstein was perhaps the most high-profile inmate in the federal jail system: A politically connected financier accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls. He was, by all accounts, the kind of inmate that should have been under the closest possible supervision.

Instead, Epstein was taken off suicide watch in the days before he took his own life, officials told NBC News, a decision that baffled former wardens and veterans of the federal prison system.

The New York City medical examiner’s office said Sunday that it had completed an autopsy of the financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein but that it needed more information before determining the cause of death.

Today the Washington Post reported that Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy found that the multimillionaire had multiple broken bones in his neck.

The newspaper, citing two unnamed sources with knowledge of the autopsy results, said Epstein’s injuries included a broken hyoid bone. 

It seems that expert in this field does not support the results of the official autopsy.

Forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril H. Wecht, who is a renowned medical-legal consultant, does not believe the official cause of death for Jeffrey Epstein as suicide. He spoke to Fox Business Network host Charles Payne after the official cause of the convicted pedophile’s death was given.

“This is a 66-year-old guy. Sure, the bones are somewhat more brittle than a 35-year-old guy. But I’m not aware that this is somebody that looks like he had osteoporosis with that kind of weakened bones.

“So that is not a rationalization or an explanation for those kinds of fractures. I want to hear more. If they tell me he hurled himself down, fine.

“But if they’re telling me that he was just kneeling down and he broke the hyoid bone and the cervical vertebrae, no way.

“With all due respect, there’s fine pathologists there at the NYC medical examiner’s office, and my colleague was an observer. I’m sorry. I do not buy that. I’ve never seen that, I’ve never heard of that,” he said.

The president of the National Association of Medical Examiners told The Post that pathologists who find a broken hyoid typically conduct further investigation.

Jonathan L. Arden, who The Post cautioned was speaking in generalities and had no involvement in the Epstein autopsy, said the issues to be investigated include the location of the noose, how narrow it is, and whether the hanging involved a significant drop.

“If, hypothetically, the hyoid bone is broken, that would generally raise questions about strangulation, but it is not definitive and does not exclude suicidal hanging,” he said, adding that the hyoid in older persons has hardened into a u-shape that can break more easily.

But the cause of his death was listed as pending and other officials have avoided directly calling Epstein’s death a suicide. For example, Attorney General William P. Barr called it an “apparent suicide.”
