The New York Post posted an article today about some recent comments by forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, New York City’s former chief medical examiner, about the death of Jeffrey Epstein.
The article reports:
“I think that the evidence points toward homicide rather than suicide,” Baden insisted on Fox News Wednesday.
“The brother (Mark Epstein) is concerned that if [Epstein] was murdered, then other people who have information might be at risk,” Baden insisted, suggesting powerful players may have been involved in the death.
“If they think he has information, his life could be in jeopardy.”
Baden said there were signs of “unusual” activity “from day one” of the autopsy, saying the wounds were “more consistent with ligature homicidal strangulation.”
The article also notes some rather strange circumstances surrounding the death of Jeffrey Epstein:
Baden noted two fractures on either side of Epstein’s larynx, and one on the hyoid bone, above the moneyman’s Adam’s apple.
“Hanging does not cause these broken bones and homicide does,” he insisted on Fox. “A huge amount of pressure was applied.”
Baden also called for federal prosecutors to release the findings from DNA samples.
“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.”
He also questioned the supposed “total breakdown in security,” with the “extremely unlikely” coincidences of two guards falling asleep while video cameras in Epstein’s cell and hallway were also not working.
I suspect this is not the last we will hear about this. Hopefully the truth will be revealed eventually.
