For a while, I was confused about the method of Jacques’s death, but now I think I’ve solved the mystery. In TRR, Uncle Monty was killed by having poison injected into his neck, making a mark like a snake bite. In TVV, Jacques was found dead with no marks on his body other than what appeared to be bite marks. Esmé, as Officer Luciana, must have gone into the cell at night and similarly injected poison into Jacques.
While there's no final answer on the manner of Jacques's death, we can at least say that he had no obvious wounds on his body, and Olaf probably did create false toothmarks to incriminate Sunny just in case any of the villagers checked. For that reason, then I agree it's reasonable to think he recycled his strategy with Uncle Monty.
From experience, suffocation will leave some marks, like in the eyes.
I think I thought of a good question to ask when you're interviewed... I remember in a slightly morbid Fanfic I did, where Beatrice was a very bad person, she was responsible for Jacques' death, and all evidence was real, seeing as she killed him with her teeth after a very long fight.

Unfortunately, I can say with experience that it is indeed possible to kill a person, using ropes around the neck without leaving any marks, so that the cause of death is undefined. It all depends on the type of node that is given. There are nodes that don't kill by suffocation, but simply by restricting blood flow to the brain. Death is peaceful, as the person simply gets sleepy until he falls asleep and dies. It is not necessary to tighten the rope too much, so the rope mark is not left. Since there is no suffocation, the person is not short of breath while dying, so common suffocation marks are not left behind, such as changing the color of the lips and eyes... (Brazil is a violent place). In general, the suspicion for this type of murder comes when they find sleeping pills in the blood tests done on the person's body.
My friend from school is Brazilian, and she had a gun pulled on her when she was very young. It must be very hard to consider that some countries only watch such violence on telly, and many are unfortunately subject to it behind the screen.

There are poisons that specifically target the nervous system and therefore wouldn't leave any marks if ingested or inhaled. A lot of snake venoms actually work this way, but of course those would leave marks since they have to be injected.
I feel you Twiggy, I'm in Oregon and while there isn't a whole lot of crime here otherwise, it's a major sex trafficking hub, the Portland area especially.
