Famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden visited with Fox and Friends where he confirmed the beliefs of many skeptics that Jeffrey Epstein was murdered and did not commit suicide.
As was pointed out at the time of the convicted sex offender’s death, Dr. Baden noted that the nature of Epstein’s wounds that were more consistent with manual strangulation than with hanging.
Dr. Baden, was hired by Epstein’s brother to observe the autopsy.
Baden told his Fox and Friends hosts that what he witnessed were more consistent with homicidal strangulation than suicidal hanging.
The famed pathologist noted that “the 66-year-old Epstein had two fractures on the left and right sides of his larynx, specifically the thyroid cartilage or Adam’s apple, as well as one fracture on the left hyoid bone above the Adam’s apple,” Baden told Fox News.”
Dr. Baden, who’s performed more than 20,000 autopsies, followed that comment with this:
“I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case.”
Baden also noted that hemorrhaging had occurred in Epstein’s eyes, that is far more consistent with homicidal strangulation.
“The prominent hemorrhage in the soft tissues of the neck next to the fractures is evidence of a fresh neck compression that could have caused the death.”
Baden believes that if Epstein was murdered whoever did it “would have left their DNA all over the ligature.” For some reason, more than two-and-a-half months later we still don’t have those results.
