Medical examiner: Epstein’s death a homicide, new investigations launched

The former chief medical examiner of New York City claims that Jeffrey Epstein’s death was no suicide.

Former NYC Chief Medical Examiner Doctor Michael Baden, who was hired by Epstein’s brother, Mark Epstein, claimed he was there to observe the autopsy after Epstein reportedly “hanged himself” in a Manhattan jail.

“I think that the evidence points toward homicide rather than suicide,” he said. “The brother is concerned that if [Epstein] was murdered, then other people who have information might be at risk.”

According to the New York Post, the doctor noted that he saw three fractured bones in Epstein’s thyroid- damage that he had never seen in a hanging death during his half-century of work.

“Hanging does not cause these broken bones and homicide does,” he insisted. “A huge amount of pressure was applied.”

Furthermore, Baden also recounted how DNA samples were taken, but no such information has been released.

“They took fingernail clippings to see if there’s anybody else’s DNA on it and that hasn’t been released, neither has information about whose DNA is on the ligature out of torn strips of orange sheets,” he said. “Whoever made it has to have a lot of DNA on it and the brother has been asking for that from day one.”

The breakdown in security was also considered curious, particularly how two guards managed to fall asleep at the same time.

“Occasionally a guard falls asleep,” he said. “Never two guards at the same time.”

This new information comes on the heels of a report out of Florida that a new investigation is ongoing and that federal prosecutors from New York have flown down to meet with several accusers.

The purpose of this investigation is to hold multiple other suspects involved in the alleged offenses accountable.
