Jeffrey Epstein's brother shares never-before-seen autopsy photos, raising new questions about Epstein's death

Jeffery Epstein's brother told Megyn Kelly on Friday that he doesn't believe his brother committed suicide, releasing never-before-seen photos of his brother's autopsy.

Mark Epstein told Kelly that he initially believed his brother committed suicide because he had no reason to disbelieve authorities. But that changed after his brother's autopsy.

That's because Mark hired famed pathologist Dr. Michael Baden to witness the autopsy. Dr. Baden, the former New York City medical examiner, concluded that evidence on Epstein's body was not consistent with a suicide by hanging. Instead, the evidence demonstrated Epstein died from "homicidal strangulation," Dr. Baden said.

In his interview with Kelly, Mark revealed more of that evidence.

First, Mark highlighted the position that his brother was allegedly found in. The Justice Department inspector general report states:

Epstein was suspended from the top bunk in a near-seated position with his buttocks approximately 1 inch to 1 inch and a half off the floor and his legs extended straight out on the floor in front of him.

But if that were true, there would have been lividity — bluish, purple discoloration in the skin that signifies blood pooling after someone has died — in "his buttocks and especially in the back of his legs because that was the lowest point and that's where the blood would have settled," Mark said.

"But the autopsy photos show ... that his legs were clear and his buttocks were clear; there is some lividity on his back," Mark explained, showing a photo of his brother's legs during the autopsy.

"The fact that his legs are clear even if they laid him down, the blood would not have drained up from his legs into his back unless he was hung upside down," he continued. "The fact that his legs and buttocks are clear from lividity, it leads doubt to the fact he was found the way they described."

Later, Mark shared a photo of the his brother's neck, which shows a low mark that is thin and concentrated.

Mark agreed with Kelly that it does not look like a prison sheet made the bruise, but rather a garrote, rope, or wire. But it's also the location of the bruise that suggests Epstein did not hang himself, Mark said.

"You can find photographs of people hanging from old lynching photographs or old war-time photographs, the ligature ... goes high up under the chin and comes up behind the ears," Mark explained.

"And if you look at the picture [of Epstein's autopsy] ... the ligature mark on his neck is lower in the middle of his neck, and sort of goes straight back," Mark observed.

Mark said that he has tried to speak with the Justice Department about his questions and concerns, but government officials have stonewalled him.
