From top: Virginia Giuffre on BBC One’s Panorama last night; Britain’s Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein in 2010
Although it aired afterwards, Giuffre was interviewed for Panorama before Prince Andrew’s Newsnight episode was recorded. Perhaps that’s for the best; now she must be taken seriously.
The lasting impression of Giuffre was her immense bravery in facing such towering institutions alone. The sheer strength she possesses is incredible. Forget Prince Andrew; when the dust settles on this, she’s the one who deserves to be remembered.
Jonathan L. Arden, president of the National Association of Medical Examiners, has questioned the broken hyoid bone and circumstances around Epstein’s death.
Mr Arden told The Washington Post: “If, hypothetically, the hyoid bone is broken, that would generally raise questions about strangulation, but it is not definitive and does not exclude suicidal hanging.”
He added the broken bone could lead to pathologists conducted a more extensive investigation.
Numerous studies were also cited by the paper that found hyoid bone breaks were detected in a minority of suicidal hangings. One such study conducted from 2010 to 2013 that looked at suicidal hangings in India found that hyoid damage was present in just 16 of 264 cases, or 6 percent…
CBS News has learned that the morning of Jeffrey Epstein’s death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell. Guards attempted to revive him while saying “breathe, Epstein, breathe.”
Congress is the latest to start investigating Epstein’s apparent suicide over the weekend, with new reports raising questions about the federal jail where he was being held. One of Epstein’s guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center on the night he died was reportedly not a regular corrections officer.
Government investigators raided the alleged sex trafficker’s private island (above) in the Virgin Islands yesterday.

Jeffrey Epstein kept “meticulously detailed” diaries of his friendships which could come back to haunt his powerful pals, reports claim.
The billionaire paedo, who died from an apparent suicide on Saturday, was once friends with Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.
He is understood to have kept a secret diary detailing his friendships with the rich and famous as an “insurance policy”.
Meanwhile, as this tumultuous news cycle began for Andrew, he was tucked safely away at Balmoral, Queen Elizabeth’s residence in the Scottish Highlands, according to reports from The Sun, The Daily Mail and the Express. He and Ferguson presumably got word of Epstein’s suicide while at Balmoral, The Daily Mail said.
The Queen chose to sit beside the Duke of York in a car, accompanied by his daughter Princess Beatrice, on the way to church at Balmoral, Scotland, on Sunday morning. All three could be seen smiling inside the vehicle.
Mr Acosta was the US Attorney in Miami in 2008 when he oversaw a non-prosecution deal against Epstein which allowed him to serve 13 months in jail – with much of that spent on work release at his Palm Beach office.
“This was him not me,” Mr Trump said, adding that Mr Acosta was “a tremendous talent” who “went to Harvard” University. Earlier this week, Mr Trump told reporters that he felt badly for his labour secretary, but added that he did not know him personally before hiring him
It’s unclear exactly why Mueller’s testimony was delayed, but lawmakers said one reason was an ongoing negotiation about how long lawmakers would have to question the former special counsel https://t.co/3muOarNe5Z
An indictment charging Jeffrey Epstein with sexually trafficking multiple underage girls was unsealed in federal court in New York City today, the latest twist in a decade-old legal saga.
The charging document says Epstein, from 2002 to at least 2005, enticed girls as young as 14 to come to his estates in Manhattan and Palm Beach for what were supposed to be massages. Instead, he induced them to engage in sex acts, according to the indictment.
Epstein would pay the girls hundreds of dollars in cash after the encounters, then, in what resembled a sexual pyramid scheme, he would allegedly pay them more to recruit other young girls to perform similar acts
The fresh move against Epstein follows on the failure of Alexander Acosta, now Trump’s labor secretary but then a Miami federal prosecutor, to bring Epstein to court on a 53-page indictment by cutting a widely criticized plea deal that was seen as far too lenient….
…Flight logs from Epstein’s private jet showed that former president Bill Clinton took at least 26 trips aboard the plane between 2001 and 2003 – the same period from which the new charges are believed to stem
