Dr. Michael Baden shared his conclusions about the suspicious nature of Jeffrey Epstein's death in an interview with a bomb
A summary of the autopsy report by Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his cell in Manhattan in August while awaiting trial for sex trafficking, contains photographs of fractures of the disgraced financier that is said to be more consistent with murder than with suicide.
Dr. Michael Baden shared his suspicions about the nature of Epstein's death in a bomb interview with "Fox and Friends" on Wednesday, suggesting that the millionaire sex offender's body bore signs of murder rather than suicide by hanging while it office of the New York City Medical Examiner.
Baden, who was hired by Epstein's brother and who observed the autopsy, described how the 66-year-old financier had two fractures – one on the left and one on the right of his larynx around the Adam's apple.
Epstein also had a fracture on the left hyoid bone above the Adam's apple, Baden explained.
"Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicide clothing and could occur much more frequently in murder murder," Baden said, adding that signs of a possible murder were evident from the first day of the autopsy.

Baden – who has worked on cases involving OJ Simpson, President John F Kennedy, Phil Spector, Aaron Hernandez and more – said the three fractures are rare & # 39; rare & # 39; goods.
The 85-year-old forensic pioneer added: & # 39; I have not seen in 50 years where that happened in a suicide suitcase. & # 39;
Dr. However, Barbara Sampson, chief medical researcher from New York City, said Wednesday that she & # 39; firm & # 39; behind her findings and that the autopsy firmly restrains any speculation about the death of Epstein.
& # 39; Our investigation concluded that the cause of Mr. Death's death Epstein stuck and that the way of death was suicide. We remain with that determination, & Sampson said in a comment.
& # 39; We continue to share information about medical research with Mr. Epstein's family, their representatives and their pathology advisor. The original medical examination was thorough and complete. There is no reason for a second medical examination at our office. & # 39;
In response, Baden says, however, that Sampson "could have made a mistake," insisting "there is evidence of murder to be investigated to see if it is murder or not."
Baden described that a person weighing 120 pounds – with a head weight of 10 pounds – would have 110 pounds of pressure on his neck at the jaw during a suspension. However, the pathologist described that double or triple pressure could be applied to the neck if a person had to pinch.

Baden added that there were also bleeding in Epstein's eyes that were consistent in strangulation of murder and yet uncommon – but not unheard of – in strangulation cases
He added that there were also bleeding in Epstein's eyes that were consistent in strangulation of murder and yet unusual – but not unheard of – in strangulation cases.
Baden said: & # 39; The prominent bleeding in the soft tissues of the neck next to the fractures is evidence of a new neck compression that could have caused death. & # 39;
The pathologist stated that a conclusion could not be drawn until the independent investigation was completed.
& # 39; The investigation is not complete until all information has arrived & # 39 ;, he said.
A twisted plate was used as the ligature around Epstein's neck. Baden said that evidence on the canvas can provide insight into the details of the sex offender's death in the Metropolitan Correctional facility.
& # 39; Whoever it is, his DNA is everywhere in the ligature, & # 39; he said. & # 39; We do not yet have those results. & # 39;
Baden stated that the results needed to be reported quickly to give an idea and reduce speculation.
Baden shared that Epstein's brother and family wanted answers, so he was hired. & # 39; The brother is concerned that if he is murdered, other people who have information can be equally dangerous, & # 39; he said

Baden noted that Epstein was placed on suicide after he was found on the floor of his prison cell on July 23 with markings around his neck.
After he was removed from the suicide guard, he was placed in a cell with a roommate who was eventually removed.
And on the day of his death, Baden described that there was a & # 39; total outage & # 39; was in the procedure that the prison guard experienced.
& # 39; It was found that the two guards who were supposed to work in that part of the prison had allegedly fallen asleep and had not completed their 30-minute rounds for more than 3 hours, & # 39; the pathologist explained.
Security cameras & # 39; s in the facility were also compromised, Baden said.
Questions remain as to why the high-profile pedophile was released so quickly after this suicide attempt in July and why he was not properly monitored by MCC employees upon his death
Baden shared that Epstein's brother and family wanted answers, so he was hired. He added that if death was a murder, he and others could be at risk because someone does not want knowledge to be disseminated.
& # 39; The brother is concerned that if he is murdered, other people who have information are at the same risk, & # 39; he said.
The forensic mainstay described Epstein's death as & # 39; not a typical hanging suitcase.
Questions remain as to why the high-profile pedophile was released so quickly after this suicide attempt in July and why he was not properly monitored by MCC employees upon his death.
His death caused indignation and disbelief about how such a high-profile prisoner, known for his socialization with powerful people including presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, could have been left unattended at the federal facility.
