FORENSIC EXPERT: Autopsy Of Jeffrey Epstein ‘Points To HOMICIDE Rather Than Suicide’

Written by K. Walker on October 30, 2019

The official report says that the cause of death was suicide. This forensic pathologist says, “Eh, not so much.”

Raise your hand if you’re surprised by this.

[I see not a single person has raised their hand.]

The death of Epstein was a mess right from the get-go. The cameras were broken, Epstein was taken off of suicide watch for no apparent reason, one person on duty wasn’t even trained as a prison guard, the guards were napping, the shift logs were altered, and on and on.

Dr. Michael Baden, the famed forensic pathologist, was hired by Jeffrey Epstein’s brother to observe the autopsy and what he is reporting is making all of those “Epstein didn’t kill himself” memes not so funny.

Although, this one is funny.

Dr. Baden claims that the autopsy revealed that the injuries Epstein sustained were “more consistent” with homicidal strangulation than suicide by hanging.

The bombshell claim by Dr. Michael Baden, a former New York City medical examiner who has worked on high-profile cases during a five-decade medical career, is certain to reignite suspicions that surfaced immediately after Epstein, who was awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges involving underage girls, was discovered dead in his cell on Aug. 10. Baden, who was hired by Epstein’s brother and observed the autopsy, told Fox News its findings are more consistent with homicidal strangulation than suicidal hanging. He 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.

“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” said Dr. Baden.

He also explained, “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.”

Dr. Baden is no slouch. He has credentials — five decades of credentials.

Baden, who’s examined more than 20,000 bodies and hosted HBO’s “Autopsy,” explained that if a person weighed 120 pounds and their head weighed 10 pounds, there would be 110 pounds of pressure on the neck at the jaw during a hanging. But, if someone put a hand around a person’s neck and squeezed, that could double or even triple the pressure on the neck, Baden said.

There were also hemorrhages in Epstein’s eyes that were common in homicidal strangulation and uncommon, though not unheard of, in suicidal hangings, the forensic pathologist said…

…While there’s not enough information to be conclusive yet, the three fractures were “rare,” said Baden, who’s probed cases involving O.J. Simpson, President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, record producer Phil Spector, New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez and many others.

“I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case,” said Dr. Baden.

Epstein’s death wasn’t a straightforward one says Dr. Baden. “It doesn’t give you the answer,” he said. “It’s not a typical hanging case.”

He also stressed that we don’t have all of the information yet, “The investigation is not completed until all the information has come in.”

As the investigation continues, there could be more evidence that will point one way or the other. If Epstein was murdered, there could still be DNA evidence waiting to be found.

The ligature, or item used to tie something tightly, allegedly was made from a sheet that had been twisted and put around Epstein’s neck, Baden said. Evidence on the cloth material could help prove whether or not someone else was involved in Epstein’s death.

“Whoever it is would have their DNA all over the ligature,” he said. “We don’t have those results yet,” he added, saying those results “should be reported quickly to give an idea and lessen the speculation.”

Jeffrey Epstein was a horrible human being and, frankly, I’m glad he’s dead. I’m sure I’m not the only one. If someone did kill him, though, it’d be nice to know who that is… and why.
