Jeffrey Epstein, a Disputed Autopsy and a Claim of Homicide

In August, the New York City medical examiner concluded that Jeffrey Epstein, the financier who was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges, had hanged himself inside his Manhattan jail cell.

But on Wednesday, more than two months after the official autopsy ruled the death a suicide, a forensic pathologist hired by Mr. Epstein’s brother claimed that evidence “points to homicide.”

Dr. Michael Baden claimed on the morning TV show “Fox & Friends” that evidence suggested Mr. Epstein, 66, may have been strangled.

Dr. Baden, a former New York City medical examiner and a Fox News contributor, said Mr. Epstein experienced a number of injuries that were “extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation.”

8. So, wait a moment


You trust a Fox News contributor more than a scientist who works in the Democratic DeBlasio administration and who, as the Chief Medical Examiner of NYC, did the actual autopsy?

Really?

5. Baden is all about self promotion

 

He deals in possibilities, not conclusions. He can't be wrong that way, and he can tell his clients what they want to hear.
