Jeffrey Epstein’s Autopsy

New details about the official determination that Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide by “hanging” were revealed Wednesday by a doctor who observed Epstein’s autopsy on August 11.

Forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by Epstein’s brother, Mark Epstein, to independently investigate the incident, said the coroner who performed the autopsy on the sex offender’s body did not personally sign the latest finding that Epstein killed himself.

Baden made the surprising claim during an interview Wednesday with Law & Crime Network host Linda Kenney Baden (Dr. Baden’s wife) and Brian Ross.

“So, the official finding that it was suicide came from his old office, the coroner in New York City, now confronts them?” Ross asked the veteran of more than 50 years.

“Well, I have a different opinion,” Baden said. “It seems that. Now, we don’t have all the information. The problem is that once a death is classified as a suicide, that’s the end of the investigation.”

Ross followed up and asked: “And the person who made the classification was the person who performed the autopsy?”

To which Baden replied:

No. The person who conducted the autopsy in my presence did not think there was enough information at that time to call it a suicide. … So, she put down “Pending Further Study,” meaning pending further investigations. All those investigations–getting information from the wardens, from the inmates, getting DNA from the ligature, as to who was handling the ligature–stop [the investigations] stop if it turns out to be a suicide. And one of the things that Mark, Jeffrey’s brother, was trying to get is: Why did the medical examiner’s officer change from “pending investigation” to [suicide]? They must have received some kind of additional information not present at the autopsy.
