First, remember how some witnesses claimed they had heard horrifying shrieking coming from Epstein's cell in the hours before his death? Well, here's one explanation for that: An autopsy report found that Epstein had endured multiple breaks in his neck bones, deepening the mystery surrounding his death last week.
Among the bones broken in Epstein's neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam's apple. These 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.
