Fox News Pathologist: Jeffrey Epstein Case Evidence Points to ‘Homicide’, Not Suicide by Hanging


Forensic pathologist and Fox News contributor Dr. Michael Baden claimed Jeffrey Epstein’s death was a “homicide” rather than a suicide by hanging.

In an interview with Fox & Friends, Baden said he was asked by Epstein’s family to study the disgraced financier’s autopsy, and he said there were “unusual” findings that he found “more indicative of homicidal strangulation.”

When challenged by previous medical findings that Epstein’s death was suicide, Baden said the doctor made that determination because they “didn’t think it was enough information to say ‘suicide,’ so she put it pending further study.” Baden also argued that investigators have refused to release evidence from Epstein’s cell that would point to DNA evidence of a potential killer.

“You say when you left the examination room, they weren’t sure what happened,” Brian Kilmeade said. “What happened in the interim to get this such a blunt conclusion?”

Baden continued to refer to changes in classification regarding the investigative information on Epstein, along with the security breakdown before his death. He also said since it only takes days for DNA tests to be conducted, the Epstein family is demanding to know whether the FBI has taken possession of the evidence and what are the test results.

“The heart doesn’t go out with this guy. This guy seems like just a terrible person,” Kilmeade said. “But there are so many people who are implicated in his web of ugliness, you wonder if this plays a role. The powerful people that his antics affected and would have been affected had he lived.”

“You are absolutely right,” Baden responded. “That’s one of the things that the brother thinks as well. If they think he has information that his life could be in jeopardy…He wants to find the answer to it.”

Biden concluded by saying that the evidence doesn’t definitely mean homicide, but insisted that the circumstances of Epstein’s mysterious death require further investigation

“Hanging does not cause these broken bones,” he said. “Homicide does.”
