Autopsy results of convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein have been revealed — and they show that the financier had numerous broken bones in his neck, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Not surprisingly, the results only deepen speculation surrounding Epstein’s sudden prison passing over the weekend.

The Washington Post reported, “Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which, in men, is near the Adam’s apple. Such 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, the experts said,” as the outlet went on.

The New York Post, relying on statements from law enforcement, had previously reported that Epstein “was found hanging in his lower Manhattan jail cell with a bedsheet wrapped around his neck and secured to the top of a bunk bed.”

He had “apparently killed himself by kneeling toward the floor and strangling himself.”

Epstein had been taken off suicide watch just a few days before his death occurred. Two guards were supposed to monitor him, but apparently fell asleep for several hours before and during his death; they then reportedly falsified prison records to cover up the fact that they were sleeping, according to The New York Times.

The situation has become even odder in the days following Epstein’s death, as the public attempts to piece together what actually happened.

Several days ago, CBS reported that “screams and shrieking” were heard from the billionaire’s jail cell the morning of his alleged suicide.

The report said, “CBS News has learned that the morning of Jeffrey Epstein’s death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell. Guards attempted to revive him while saying ‘breathe, Epstein, breathe.'”

At this time, it is not clear who the screams were coming from — they could have come from the guards, Epstein, or someone else entirely.

On Friday, just one day before his apparent suicide, Epstein was transferred to a new cell, according to The Washington Post.

Epstein, who was facing charges of trafficking underage girls, had a plethora of powerful friends in politics, banking, entertainment, and journalism.

However, at this time it is unclear why he was moved in the first place.

Epstein, who was facing charges of trafficking underage girls, had a plethora of powerful friends in politics, banking, entertainment, and journalism.

He was friendly with many of the nation’s most rich and famous — including former President Bill Clinton, who took numerous rides on Epstein’s private jet.
