A renowned forensic psychologist who observed the autopsy of accused child sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein has now said that Epstein’s injuries and manner of death are more suggestive of homicide than suicide.
Dr. Michael Baden was a New York City medical examiner and worked on cases including O.J. Simpson, President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, record producer Phil Spector, New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez and many others.
Baden said that fractures on the right and left side of the larynx and a fracture of the hyoid bone are rare in suicide cases, especially all three happening at once. “I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case,” he said to Fox News.
Hemorrhages in the eyes are also rarely seen in suicide by strangulation, Baden said.
Baden said the sheet allegedly used to strangle Epstein needs to be examined for DNA, which would be present if he were strangled by someone else rather than killing himself. Other details of that night such as two guards that both fell asleep while on duty are also suspicious, Baden thought.
