Graphic photos of Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy reveal his bloody neck – while other images from his prison cell show tones made from sheets, prescription pills, and electrical cords
Graphic photos of Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy revealed his bloody neck wound for the first time – as other photos taken in his New York prison cell show various stripes made from sheets, pills, and electrical cords.
The images obtained by 60 minutes and first shown on Sunday, were taken by the New York City medical researcher after Epstein killed himself in his cell in August.
The death of the millionaire pedophile in the Metropolitan Correctional Center of Manhattan – awaiting trial against sex trafficking – was officially ruled as a suicide by hanging up.
His death caused widespread conspiracy theories and speculation that he had been killed instead.
The photos from his cell reveal that fragments of material were found hanging on a window, while a large strip of bedding was also led through a hole in the upper bunk bed.

Several stripes were formed from the orange bedding on the floor of Epstein’s cell
Several stripes formed from the orange bedding were found on the floor, as well as a handwritten note complaining about the conditions in the prison.
The photos from the cell also showed several prescribed pill bottles, different electrical cords and enough sheets for different prisoners who were dumped on the floor.
Dr. Michael Baden, hired by Epstein’s brother to investigate death and was present during the autopsy, said there was no picture of the 66-year-old in his cell.
He said it was difficult to determine the cause of Epstein’s death without that photo, and said the official statement was “premature judgment.”
Dr. Baden believes the forensic evidence released so far in Epstein’s death points more to murder than to suicide.
He pointed out that the sling in Epstein’s cell seemed to contain no blood, despite the image of his autopsy with a wound around his neck.
Dr. Baden said that the wound in Epstein’s neck is more common in someone who is strangled with a thread instead of a suspension.
He said that in most curtains it was common for the ligature to slide to the jaw bone and not rest in the middle of the neck.
He also pointed to the multiple fractures that Epstein sustained in his neck.

Epstein’s autopsy report showed that his neck was broken in various places, including the hyoid bone that was near Adam’s apple.
Forensic experts have previously said that fractures to that specific bone can occur when people hang themselves, but are more often seen with victims who were strangled.
“I have never seen three such fractures in a suicidal hang,” Dr. said. Bathe 60 minutes.
“During the more than a thousand prison sentences, suicides in the prisons of New York City in the last 40-50 years, no one had three fractures.”
Dr. Baden said the injuries to his body also had bruises on both wrists, muscle bleeding in his left shoulder and a wear on his left arm.
Epstein also had a cut on his lip and burst capillaries on his face, mouth and eyes, according to the autopsy.
