Famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden finds evidence points to homicide in Jeffrey Epstein death

Powered by Topple

The death of disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has been the subject of much debate, with a rash of memes lately covertly displaying the message “Epstein did not kill himself.” While many believe this to be a conspiracy theory (as the socially accepted cause of death appears to be suicide) others believe that the information held by the accused was too important to be shared with the world.

Today the latter group got a leg up in the argument when Dr. Michael Baden, a forensic pathologist, stated that he believes the evidence points to homicide, rather than suicide.

In an interview with Fox & Friends, Baden reveals that Epstein’s brother asked him to be at the autopsy and that the results of said autopsy were indicative of “homicidal strangulation.”

When pressed on why he thinks this way, Baden explains that Epstein had “three fractures in the hyoid bone, the thyroid cartilage, that are very unusual for suicide, and more indicative of homicidal strangulation.”

Host Steve Doocy then went on to read the findings of Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson:

“After careful review of all investigative information, including complete autopsy findings, the determination on the death of Jeffrey Epstein is below

Cause: Hanging

Manner: Suicide”

Baden defended his position, reiterating that the evidence is “more consistent with homicide.” He then brought up the confusion surrounding the initial autopsy.

“And in fact, at the time of the autopsy, the doctor doing the autopsy didn’t think there was enough information to say suicide, so she put ‘pending further study,'” Baden recounts. “And then for some reason- the family wants to know why it was changed from ‘pending further study’ to [suicide] afterward.”

When asked if Epstein had any signs of attempting to defend himself, Baden stated that the fingernail clippings taken from the body hadn’t been released. Neither, he said, was the information regarding the DNA on the bed sheets Epstein allegedly hung himself with. According to Baden, the brother of the deceased has been trying to get that information “from day one.”

Baden goes on to explain that 80 days later, Epstein’s brother “feels like he’s getting the run-around,” and bashes the “total breakdown in security” i.e., sleeping guards, non-functioning cameras, removing cellmate before the suicide, etc.

The conversation shifted back to the bedsheets that could possibly be the most important evidence in the case, possibly indicating one way or the other, who was in Epstein’s cell at the time of his death.

“So if there was a prisoner who went in and strangled him, and the DNA is on that- whatever he used, the ligature, the bedsheets, then wouldn’t it be easy to track down who that person was?” Baden was asked.

“Absolutely,” Baden confirmed, once again stating that Epstein’s brother wants to know where the results of these tests have gone.
