A doctor who observed the autopsy of alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein said that his autopsy seems to indicate more signs of a homicide than of a suicide.
Former New York City medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden was hired to observe the autopsy by Epstein’s brother, and said that three fractures of the larynx and hyloid bone suggest homicidal strangulation rather than suicide.
“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” Baden, who is also a Fox News contributor, said.
Hemorrhages in the eyes are also more suggestive of homicide, Baden said, although they can occasionally be seen in hanging suicides.
Baden has worked on many high profile cases including those involving O.J. Simpson, President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, record producer Phil Spector, New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez. He also hosted HBO’s Autopsy.
