On Wednesday, a prominent forensic pathologist spoke out on Jeffrey Epstein's death, revealing that his autopsy showed many signs “the evidence points towards homicide not suicide.”
Longtime former New York City medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by Epstein's family to investigate his death, told Fox and Friends that Epstein was most likely murdered.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Ever since prison guards found Epstein dead in his cell Aug. 10, many have questioned the conclusion that Epstein took his own life, with his lawyer saying he did not sound like a man on the verge of suicide when he talked to the convicted sex offender shortly before he died. Epstein signed his will just two days before his demise.
Epstein had an A-list of friends who included former politicians, movie stars and business moguls. Former President Bill Clinton accompanied Epstein on flights to the financier’s notorious “Pedophile Island.”
Baden particularly noted a series of fractures on Epstein’s larynx, on or near the Adam’s apple, which he told Fox News are not consistent with a suicidal hanging.
“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” Baden revealed.
“I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case,” he said while speaking of the neck fractures.
Baden continued by discussing the bleeding in Epstein’s eyes and said this is common of being strangled but almost never happens when someone hangs themself.
“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 said to Fox News.
The Daily Caller reports: "The forensic pathologist believes he might find a smoking gun in his investigation. Baden has requested a DNA test on the bed sheet that was found wrapped around Epstein’s neck. Baden says this “ligature” should be covered with DNA evidence."
“Whoever it is would have their DNA all over the ligature,” he continued. “We don’t have those results yet,” he said, hoping that any information would “be reported quickly to give an idea and lessen the speculation.”
One of the most alarming revelations in Epstein's death was how two surveillance cameras located outside of hihs prison cell just so happened to "malfunction" during the time he allegedly committed suicide.
"The cameras were sent to Quantico, Virginia, site of a major FBI crime lab where agents and forensic scientists analyze evidence," Reuters said. "The Washington Post reported on Monday that at least one camera in the hallway outside Epstein’s cell had footage that was unusable. The newspaper said there was other usable footage captured in the area."
Reuters also noted that "Epstein's lawyers Reid Weingarten and Martin Weinberg told U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan on Tuesday they had doubts about the New York City chief medical examiner's conclusion that their client killed himself."
