Epstein Death Investigation: Autopsy Reveals Broken Hyoid Bone
We are learning more developments in the investigation of Jeffrey Epstein’s death.
And a new lawsuit has been filed by one of Epstein’s alleged victims
The New York Medical Examiner’s Office says it has completed its autopsy following the apparent suicide of Jeffery Epstein.
They are not releasing their findings yet, but what we do know is it showed the hyoid bone was broken in his neck.
A break like that is commonly found in cases where the victim is strangled. But forensics experts say this kind of break can also happen when someone hangs themselves.
Just two weeks earlier, Epstein was was placed on suicide watch after he was found semi-conscious from an apparent suicide attempt using clothing.
He was taken off suicide watch in late July after he was given daily psychological assessments.
Two prison staff members who were guarding the unit where Epstein died failed to check on him for about three hours the night he died.
And Thursday a new victim stepped forward and filled a civil lawsuit against three companies linked to Epstein.
More lawsuits are expected to come out in the coming days and weeks.
