Mark, the brother of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein—whose death was declared a suicide in August—said “unexplained” injuries were found on his body during the autopsy.
The deceased sex offender, with strong ties to former President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew of England, was detained and in a suicide prevention program awaiting trial for his involvement in a child sexual exploitation network that threatened to implicate important figures worldwide.
In addition to having “three bone fractures in the neck,” Epstein had “two contusions on both wrists, an abrasion on the left forearm and a deep muscular hemorrhage in the deltoid or left shoulder,” his brother Mark told Fox News as he provided the autopsy documents.
“Those [contusions on the wrists] are unexplained. Was he handcuffed and struggled? Was someone holding his wrists? The marks on his wrist are unexplained,” Mark said, arguing that there are too many suspicious circumstances and unanswered questions to rule out murder.
In an attempt to independently verify the true cause of his brother’s death, he explained that he is asking the Justice Department for the complete autopsy file after the New York City coroner’s office rejected his request on Aug. 16.
“They’re playing games,” said Mark, 65. “I’ve done the appropriate requests with Justice twice, and have heard nothing. I was told someone is looking into it.”
“I have no standing to sue… people should know the truth about what can happen in a federal facility,” he continued. “My brother might have been murdered. This is not about me,” he concluded.
It should be remembered that New York City’s chief medical examiner, Dr. Barbara Sampson, issued a brief statement after the millionaire pedophile’s death determining that it was a “suicide” by “hanging,” according to Bloomberg, that specified that authorities stated that he “apparently tied a sheet to the top of a bunk bed” and “then he leaned toward the floor.”
Quick resolution of “suicide by hanging”
Both Mark Epstein and the forensic pathologist he hired to review the autopsy, Dr. Michael Baden, said they would like to study the full report to see why Jeffrey Epstein’s cause of death went from “pending ” to “suicide by hanging” in just five days.
“Ordinarily it takes weeks or months to determine a cause if it needs further investigation,” Baden told Fox News. “They felt like they had enough information to complete their investigation in five days. What was that additional information?”
“Did the injuries happen a week before or at the time of the incident? We have to look at the microscopic slides to see when the injuries occurred,” Baden said. “The brother requested this information three months ago and he still has not gotten it,” he said.
“After meeting with him, I came to the firm conclusion that it was not a suicide attempt,” said the defense attorney for Jeffrey Epstein, David Schoen, after meeting with his client when he was found on the floor of his cell in a fetal position with marks around his neck, and placed on 2a 4-hour suicide watch.
“He was afraid he would face consequences if he implicated anyone while he was there, so he kept his mouth shut and told investigators he couldn’t remember what happened,” Schoen said.
