The New York City Medical Examiner’s office says it stands behind its statement that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself despite newly released evidence that challenges that theory. A guard claimed that he cut Epstein down from the red noose he used to hang himself, but photos of the noose show no evidence of being cut. According to one criminal pathologist who examined the evidence,there were unusual fractures in the neck bone and cartilage that indicate Epstein was not killed by hanging. Photos of Epstein’s neck show blood, but there was no blood on the noose. The 60 Minutes host says we know Epstein is dead because the body’s fingerprints matched Epstein’s prints on record.

While we’ve heard all sorts of theories about the improbabilities of the force required by the nearly 6 foot tall Epstein to successfully hang himself while breaking an unusual three bones in his neck usually seen in strangulations, that’s nowhere near the most peculiar part of Epstein’s demise (notwithstanding the ol’ homeless guy switcharoo theory).

For the first time, we get to look at the noose Epstein used to allegedly kill himself. Photos admitted as evidence reveal a clean cloth with no blood, despite Epstein’s clearly bloody neck. Moreover, both ends of the noose were hemmed, not cut – while the guard who found Epstein reportedly cut him down.

Also odd is that Epstein’s ligature wound, allegedly left by said bloodless noose, is fairly low on his neck.
