Graphic photographs from Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy have revealed for the first time his bloody neck wound – as other images taken inside his New York prison cell show several nooses fashioned from bed sheets, pills and electrical cords.

The images, which were obtained by 60 Minutes and shown publicly for the first time on Sunday, were taken by the New York City medical examiner’s office after Epstein killed himself in his cell last August.

The millionaire pedophile’s death at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center – while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges – was officially ruled as a suicide by hanging.

His death prompted widespread conspiracy theories and speculation that he had instead been murdered.

The photos from inside his cell reveal that fragments of material were found hanging from a window, while a large strip of bedding was also looped through a hole on the top bunk bed.

Multiple nooses fashioned from the orange bedding were found on the floor, as well as a handwritten note complaining about prison conditions.

The photos from inside the cell also showed multiple prescription pill bottles, several electrical cords and enough bed sheets for several inmates dumped on the floor.

Dr Michael Baden, who was hired by Epstein’s brother to investigate the death and was present during the autopsy, said there was no image taken of the 66-year-old inside his cell.

He said that without that photo it was difficult to determine Epstein’s cause of death and said the official ruling was ‘premature judgment’.

Dr Baden believes the forensic evidence released so far in Epstein’s death points more to murder and strangulation rather than suicide.

He pointed out that the noose found in Epstein’s cell did not appear to have any blood on it despite the image from his autopsy showing a wound around his neck.

Dr Baden said the wound across Epstein’s neck was more common with someone who has been strangled with a wire instead of a hanging.

He said that in most hangings, it was common for the ligature to slide up towards the jaw bone and not rest in the middle of one’s neck.

He also pointed to the multiple fractures Epstein sustained in his neck.

Epstein’s autopsy report found his neck had been broken in several places, including the hyoid bone located near the Adam’s apple.

Forensic experts have previously said that breakages to that specific bone could occur when people hanged themselves but were more commonly seen in victims who had been strangled.

‘I have never seen three fractures like this in a suicidal hanging,’ Dr Baden told 60 Minutes.

‘Going over a thousand jail hangings, suicides in the New York City state prisons over the past 40–50 years, no one had three fractures.’

Dr Baden said the injuries on his body also showed contusions on both wrists, muscle hemorrhaging in his left shoulder and an abrasion of his left arm.

Epstein also had a cut on his lip and burst capillaries on his face, mouth and eyes, according to the autopsy.

The handwritten note found in Epstein’s cell, which was found alongside a ball point pen, contained complaints he seemingly had about prison conditions.

Among the complaints were that one guard had ‘kept me in a locked shower stall for 1 hour’ and another ‘sent me burnt food’.

Epstein also wrote: ‘Giant bugs crawling over my hands. No fun!!’
