Michael Baden, the country’s best known and most highly rated forensics coroner in the United States has weighed in on the death of Jeffrey Epstein. Baden says his injuries are more consistent with someone who has been strangled that that of someone who committed suicide. Baden the former coroner in NYC is the number one go to guy for autopsies, a distinction he earned from his lifetime of work. He was hired by Michael Brown’s family and his autopsy was the first one released to the public. Others did autopsies and in the end they all agreed with assessment except the Brown family because his study found that Brown was them aggressor.
Fox News contributor Dr. Michael Baden, a former New York City medical examiner, on Wednesday’s “Fox & Friends” suggested deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy points more to homicidal strangulation than suicide.
Epstein, who was found hanging in his prison cell at the high-security Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, had been on suicide watch and was found after a “total breakdown” in security surveillance, Baden noted.
“I think that the evidence points toward homicide rather than suicide,” Baden, who was asked by Epstein’s family to investigate the death, declared.
He reasoned, “Because there are multiple — three fractures in the hyoid bone, in the thyroid cartilage that are very unusual for suicide and more indicative of strangulation, homicidal strangulation.
Baden explained that the ligature, the item used to tie something tightly, allegedly on Epstein’s neck was made from a sheet and could have DNA on it to provide more context into the death. He then questioned why the results of the DNA test have not been released yet.
He said, “There’s evidence here of homicide that should be investigated, to see if it is or isn’t homicide.
“It’s 80 days and the brother feels he’s getting the run-around,” added Baden.
