Famed pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, the former chief medical examiner for New York City, was hired by Jeffrey Epstein’s family to observe his autopsy. On Wednesday, Baden revealed his expert opinion: Epstein did not die by suicide.
In fact, Baden — who has experience in high-profile cases like the deaths of John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — insisted on “Fox & Friends” that Epstein was murdered.
“I think that the evidence points toward homicide rather than suicide,” Baden said.
Baden explained that Epstein’s body displayed evidence not consistent with suicide by hanging, the official cause of death, but rather “homicidal strangulation.”
Baden pointed to three specific fractures in Epstein’s neck — in the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage — that he said are “very unusual for suicide and more indicative of homicidal strangulation.”
“Hanging does not cause these broken bones — homicide does,” Baden said.
