#1 Told youse.

The broken hyoid bone is "more common in victims of homicide by strangulation" than suicide.

Of course.

What an absolute shitshow.

#2 if you are reasonably strong and have bones weakened by arthritis or previous trauma it is not hard to fracture the hypoid yourself

on the other hand, unless you do it by accident, you have to be lucid enough to know what you are doing but still desperate enough to do suicide

#3 Epstein was in good health. No diagnosus of arthritis or osteoporosis or anything at all. He was an obsessive fitness nut, worked out daily.

Obviously, the man was strangled while the guards snoozed.

#4 24 hour rule.... Better yet, I will wait 48-hours because this sounds too Truthy™ to be disbelieved.

#5 "The convicted pedophile also told his lawyers that the neck injuries he suffered in an earlier incident at the Metropolitan Correctional Center were inflicted by his hulking, ex-cop cellmate, which led the lawyers to request that he be taken off a suicide watch, according to a source familiar with Epstein’s case," The New York Post added.

Attempt #1.

#6 Yes Besoeker.

He convinced everyone to get rid of the guy who STOPPED him during his first suicide attempt AND the guards believed he was OK now with his "dangerous cellmate" no longer a threat to him, so nap time.

#7  Hyoid fractures and suicide and murder.
Not impossible to break the hyoid bone during suicide by hanging but improbable according to data from studies.

#8 The cell was not structurally capable of hanging in a traditional manner. Therefore, his method of "hanging" was a non traditional method.

#9 Assisted suicide then? Probably nothing more to investigate.

#10 Was there ever any doubt ? You could tell me a knife was found in his hands with the blade buried to the hilt in his eye, and I'd still say it was murder.

Look at the man's lifestyle, look at his eyes in the pics. That's not a guy that gives up easy. The only reason that man kills himself is if he's convinced he won't be continuing his old life. He still had his chances. A man like that doesn't take secrets to the grave willingly. He trades them for better deals, and he had some pricey goods to trade.

This was not supposed to happen in a developed nation like the US. The entrenched corruption and zero accountability of the democrat deepState has resulted in a system not very different from comic-book depictions of an evil god-machine run by hedonist egoists.

#11 He had recently met with his legal team and was undoubtedly planning to negotiate a plea deal involving testimony. It worked the last time. It would have worked this time as well.

The sticky wicket would have been his testimony. But 'what difference does it make', he's dead. There simply 'wasn't enough time' to get competent prison guards in there to save him.

Notice how very little we're hearing about these very peculiar events from New York politicians ?

#12 Suicide is the option of those who are mentally ill.
He was not chronically depressed.

99% sure murdered.

#13 Obviously, the man was strangled while the guards snoozed.

You only have the guards' word that they were snoozing

#14 IMO "Tell H to get me out of here, or I'll sing like a canary" is stupid.

#15 Use truth serum on the "Guards".

#16 Agreed, JohnQC, "snoozed" was an ironic touch.
This one is so obvious, it's comical. Doesn't even rise to the level of intelligent satire.
The only question now is how the order came down.

#17 You can speculate all you want by my bet is we'll never hear the truth.

#18 I recommend a high level commission and report. We simply must get to the bottom of this.

#19 Agree totally with #17. No matter how many titillating details come out, the whole truth (or even a substantial part of it) will be or already has been completely covered up.

#20 Considering the tawdriness surrounding the Epstein case, I'm surprised authorities have not tried to lay off his death due to autoerotic asphyxiation. I guess the train has left the station for that explanation--to complicated (you need things) according to Coroner Talk:

#21 Was he a 'Gasper'?
Might have just been bored, dies like Robin Williams.
