  Autopsy finds broken bones in Jeffrey Epstein’s neck, deepening questions around his death

  尸检发现杰弗里·爱泼斯坦颈部骨折,进一步加深了人们对其死因的疑惑

  An autopsy found that financier Jeffrey Epstein suffered multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings, deepening the mystery about the circumstances around his death.

  据两位知情人士透露,尸检发现金融家杰弗里·爱泼斯坦的颈部有多处骨折,这更加深了其死因的神秘感。

  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.

  爱泼斯坦脖子上骨折的部位包括靠近喉结的舌骨。根据法医专家和学者的推测,上吊自杀者(尤其是年纪较大的人)可能会发生舌骨骨折的现象。但专家们还表示,舌骨骨折的特征在他杀案件中更为常见。

  The details are the first findings to emerge from the autopsy of Epstein, a convicted sex offender and multimillionaire in federal custody on charges of sex trafficking.

  前性犯罪者、亿万富豪爱泼斯坦因涉嫌性交易而遭到联邦政府的拘留,这些细节是对爱泼斯坦进行尸检所得出的最新发现。

  He died early Saturday morning after guards found him hanging in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan and he could not be revived.

  周六清晨,警卫发现他悬挂于曼哈顿大都会惩教中心的牢房中,并且已无生命迹象。

  Attorney General William P. Barr, whose department oversees the Bureau of Prisons facility where Epstein died, has described his death as an “apparent suicide.” Justice officials declined to comment on the new information from Epstein’s autopsy.

  司法部长威廉·P·巴尔称爱泼斯坦的死亡“显然是自杀”。巴尔所在的部门是负责监管爱泼斯坦死亡的监狱管理局。司法官员拒绝就爱泼斯坦尸检的新信息置评。

  The office of New York City’s chief medical examiner, Barbara Sampson, completed an autopsy of Epstein’s body Sunday. But Sampson listed the cause of his death as pending.

  纽约市首席法医芭芭拉·桑普森的团队于周日完成了对爱泼斯坦的尸检。但桑普森将他的死因列为了待定。

  Asked about the neck injuries, Sampson said in a statement that no single factor in an autopsy can alone provide a conclusive answer about what happened.

  当被问及颈部受伤的问题时,桑普森通过一份声明表示,仅凭尸检的单一因素是无法就死亡原因给出一个确切答案的。
