Strangulation can definitely break the Hyoid bone located above the adam's apple, but from things I am reading it would take significant direct force to break one's adam's apple. Was the belt was low enough to exert that much force on the adam's apple? It seemed higher on the neck and rather tucked in around the jaw (which would be the point of this type of hanging scenario).Just a thought, but would/could a hanging break an adam's apple?
