"An autopsy found that financier Jeffrey Epstein sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings, deepening the mystery about the circumstances around his death.
Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple. Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said."

I'm sure there are many perfectly credible explanations for the numeerous inconsistencies that exist surrounding Epstein's assisted suicide.
Here are some of the inconsistencies:
He was found unconscious in his prison cell just three weeks earlier yet was not being closely monitored.
He was taken off suicide watch after a failed possible suicide or murder attempt just two weeks earlier and no measures were taken to prevent a possible suicide such as the issuance of paper sheets. And he supposedly hung himself using the sheets.
Supposedly he hung himself while kneeling on the bed and then "Jumping" to the floor, a distance of less than 2 feet. (If this is true, it is unlikely that it would have broken bones in his neck)
The cameras malfunctioned the morning of his alleged suicide.
The prison guards “forgot” to check on Epstein
One prison guard on his floor was not even a certified guard.
Some of the prison guards reportedly slept through their shift. The New York Times reported that two guards in Epstein’s jail unit fell asleep and failed to check on him for about three hours. In an apparent cover-up attempt, they falsified records to hide their mistake.
The guards did not check Epstein for several hours in spite of the fact that there were reports of screaming the morning Epstein died.
The Federal facility, MCC where Epstein was housed had not seen a successful suicide in 40 years
