(Fox News) Melissa Leon October 30 2019 The body of disgraced money man and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein who was found dead in his Manhattan federal prison cell in August bore telltale signs of homicide despite an official ruling that he killed himself a pioneering forensic pathologist revealed to Fox & Friends" in an exclusive interview Wednesday. The bombshell claim by Dr. Michael Baden a former New York City medical examiner who has worked on high-profile cases during a five-decade medical career is certain to reignite suspicions that surfaced immediately after Epstein who was awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges involving underage girls was discovered dead in his cell on Aug. 10. Baden who was hired by Epsteins brother and observed the autopsy told Fox News its findings are more consistent with homicidal strangulation than suicidal hanging. He noted that the 66-year-old Epstein had two fractures on the left and right sides of his larynx specifically the thyroid cartilage or Adams apple as well as one fracture on the left hyoid bone above the Adams apple Baden told Fox News. 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. While theres not enough information to be conclusive yet the three fractures were rare" said Baden whos probed cases involving O.J. Simpson President John F. Kennedy Martin Luther King record producer Phil Spector New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez and many others. Ive not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case" the 85-year-old medical legend told Fox News.
