Controversy and the Clintons go hand in hand.
Mysterious deaths of Clinton family associates have been in the public eye for decades.
And now bombshell photos from this murder scene are the smoking gun Bill Clinton fears.
The pictures reveal the mess of Epstein’s cell, but the biggest shock are the wounds on Epstein’s neck.
Bruises, perhaps enough to draw blood, can be seen on Epstein’s cadaver. In two other photos are the two alleged nooses made of prison bedsheets. But according to an expert, these don’t add up.
NYC Medical Examiner and forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden said the “findings are more indicative of homicide” than suicide.
Dr. Baden added that the bed sheet nooses don’t match Epstein’s neck or the way he was allegedly hanged.
First, there are no blood marks on the sheet, which one might expect due to the severe wounds on Epstein’s neck.
Second, investigators claimed Epstein tied the sheet to a bed post and knelt forward to kill himself. But Dr. Baden says the wounds don’t match that story.
Dr. Baden states there were three fractures in Epstein’s neck, injuries that he had never seen in a suicidal hanging. He claims this is more common in strangulation by wire cord.
“[T]he forensic evidence released so far point much more to murder and strangulation than suicide,” Dr. Baden said.
More questions were raised by the finding that a ballpoint pen and sleep apnea machine with a long power cord were both seen in the cell as well. Since Epstein was on suicide watch, neither item should have been permitted into his cell.
The pen was found on a note about conditions of the cell. Epstein was complaining about burnt food and giant bugs, but made no attempt at a suicide note.
Even with all red flags, Dr. Baden did not jump to conclusions. He wishes more evidence about the case hadn’t been destroyed.
Dr. Baden said that the position of Epstein’s body when he was found could likely have revealed the true cause of his death, but when his body was moved without taking pictures, that evidence was destroyed.
“I think there’s a lot of information that still hasn’t been revealed yet that is essential in order to arrive at a conclusion, whether this is a suicide or homicide,” Dr. Baden said. “I think the closing out of the case as a suicide so quickly was premature.”
But that’s not all. In light of new evidence, lawmakers are already calling for new investigations into possible murder.
“With a case this high-profile, there has got to be either a major malfunction of the system or criminal enterprise at foot to allow this to happen,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican Senator from South Carolina.
“The FBI is involved and they are looking at criminal enterprise, yes,” Kathleen Hawk Sawyer, responded. Sawyer is a representative for the FBI.
Right now, it’s not clear who exactly the FBI will look into to resolve this case.
But with this bombshell new evidence, there’s no doubt that this case isn’t about to go cold.
