Jeffrey Epstein's autopsy shows that the multi-millionaire has a number of broken bones in his neck and neck. Those injuries can indicate both suspension and strangulation, writes The Washington Post on Thursday based on sources.
Epstein's tongue bone, among other things, would be broken. Forensic experts say that this is more common in elderly people who hang themselves, while other experts point out that a fractured tongue bone is much more common among victims of strangulation.
The autopsy is said to be completed on Sunday, but little is known about the exact cause of death. According to official reports, this has yet to be determined.
