Update: Epstein's Autopsy's Results

New information is contradictory to the idea that he committed suicide.

Update: Epstein's Autopsy's Results

Back in August of this year, (2019) the body of Jeffery Epstein was found hanging in his jail cell. He was awaiting his trail for sex trafficking and conspiracy charges, but then was found hanging in his cell on August 10th. Weeks before that, he had been found on the floor of his cell with marks around his neck and was put on suicide watch. But the watch was lifted shortly thereafter.

The initial report by the New York medical examiner concluded that the manner of death was suicide by hanging.

However, both the victim's family and lawyers rejected the initial conclusion and hired a pathologist of their own, The pathologist is Dr. Michael Baden who has a five decade career, with investigations into high profile cases such as Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman, the assassination of President Kennedy, among others.

Just this morning, Dr.Baden has released his own results, which are contradictory to the states findings. He states that the fractures on the right and left sides of Epstien's larynx, along with the fracture of his hyoid bone, are more consistent with "homicidal strangulation" rather than suicide. There was also hemorrhaging in his eyes that is more evident of homicide.

There is also DNA evidence that is still being processed from the cloth that he was found hanging from.

While the case was initially ruled a suicide, these results contradict the original findings and have severe, widespread implications, given Epstien's connections with powerful people, like the President of the United States. Only time will tell if the case is reopened and what happens next, but it is certainly something to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
