(Politico) ERIN DURKIN 10/31/2019 04:34 PM Mayor Bill de Blasio again raised the specter of conspiracy surrounding the death of Jeffrey Epstein saying Thursday that something doesnt fit even after the citys own medical examiner found the death was a suicide. De Blasio first said in August he thought something was amiss regarding the billionaires suicide in federal jail in Manhattan where he was being held on multiple charges of sexual abuse and sex trafficking. This week a pathologist hired by Epsteins brother disputed findings of an autopsy by the citys medical examiner that the death was a suicide. The pathologist Dr. Michael Baden claimed that evidence suggested Epstein may have been strangled in prison. Baden is a Fox News contributor and former New York City medical examiner with his own colorful history who was fired by Mayor Ed Koch after a series of complaints. Asked about the claim Thursday de Blasio did not rush to back up his chief medical examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson. Something doesnt fit here. It just doesnt make sense that the highest profile prisoner in America you know someone forgot to guard him" he told reporters during an unrelated press conference in Queens. I want to understand I think everyone wants to understand what really happened. I dont know what the nature of the death was the mayor continued. I just know it should never have happened and we still dont have good answers." Epstein was found dead in his jail cell at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center in August while awaiting trial as charges against him mounted. The autopsy found that Epstein hanged himself.
