The Daily Caller is reporting that forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht joined Charles Payne to discuss the announcement from the medical examiner to rule on the cause of Jeffrey Epstein’s death.
Dr. Wecht told Charles Payne that some of the leaked details from the autopsy of Epstein didn’t add up.
He isn’t buying the medical examiner’s report because of one key thing.
Charles Payne asked Dr. Wecht if he believed the theory from the autopsy of how Epstein died; “Doctor, you really do not believe from what you know that perhaps Epstein knelt, tied this noose around his neck from the bedsheets, knelt from the bedpost and created the injuries that we know about. You don’t think those two things are compatible.”
Dr. Wecht responded, “I do not believe that a kneeling position with the bedsheet tied to the bedpost, in the absence of force that would have been imparted from hurling himself from a top bunk, would have provided sufficient force to fracture the hyoid bone and fractures of the cervical vertebrae.”
Wecht continued, “We don’t know, and I’m waiting to see this report how many vertebrae, cervical vertebrae, there’s seven, come down from the back of your neck to the bony prominence at the base of your neck … We want to find out how many were broken. You do not get fractures of a cervical vertebrae and high up here under the mandible, the hyoid bone, without tying — there’s no force. There’s no velocity.”
