Opinion| Mark Sidney| It was just a few days ago that we reported on Dr. Michael Baden’s continued insistence that famous pedophile, and friend of some of the most powerful people on the planet, including the Clintons and members of the British Royal family, did not kill himself, but rather suffered injuries more consistent with homicide.
At the time I wrote:
“Famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden visited with Fox and Friends where he echoed the beliefs of many skeptics that Jeffrey Epstein was murdered and did not commit suicide.
As was pointed out at the time of the convicted sex offender’s death, Dr. Baden noted that the nature of Epstein’s wounds that were more consistent with manual strangulation than with hanging.

Dr. Baden, was hired by Epstein’s brother to observe the autopsy.
Baden told his Fox and Friends hosts that what he witnessed were more consistent with homicidal strangulation than suicidal hanging.
The famed pathologist noted that “the 66-year-old Epstein had two fractures on the left and right sides of his larynx, specifically the thyroid cartilage or Adam’s apple, as well as one fracture on the left hyoid bone above the Adam’s apple,” Baden told Fox News.”
Dr. Baden, who’s performed more than 20,000 autopsies, followed that comment with this:
“I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case.”
Baden also noted that hemorrhaging had occurred in Epstein’s eyes, that is far more consistent with homicidal strangulation.
“The prominent hemorrhage in the soft tissues of the neck next to the fractures is evidence of a fresh neck compression that could have caused the death.”
Baden believes that if Epstein was murdered whoever did it “would have left their DNA all over the ligature.” For some reason, more than two-and-a-half months later we still don’t have those results.”
Fast forward to today. We know from Baden’s statements that he was present at Epstein’s autopsy, as he was hired by the Epstein family (Jeff’s brother if I am not mistaken) to serve as their wittness to the procedure.

A few nights ago Dr. Baden, who seems to have a brass pair for even daring to mention this again after seeing what happened to Mr Epstein, joined Judge Jeanine Pirro to discuss the circumstances surrounding Jeff’s demise and the subsequent analysis by the coroner.
The Gateway Pundit, as usually, is all over the story:
“During the discussion Judge Jeanine and Dr. Baden and showed convincing evidence that Epstein’s death was not a suicide.
Epstein’s bed was 5′ 6″. tall. Epstein was 4′ tall on his knees. The noose was found tied to the bed at 3’6′. According to Dr. Baden the height of the tie would not bring enough force to break ANY bones let alone three bones in his neck.
‘Judge Jeanine: Now I want to be real clear. I want the viewers to understand. I’ve tried these intentional strangulation cases too. The breaking of the hyoid bone, the fracture of the two Thyroid cartilage, that means serious force on the neck. That you don’t normally get in a hanging. Especially in a hanging. I want the next screen guys. Here’s a bunk bed. The height is 5’6″. On his knees Epstein is 4′ tall. You now have been able to identify that the tie is right there (around 3′ 6″).
Dr. Baden: The ligature is tied up here (3’6″) but it’s down to the floor as far as the body goes. So there’s not enough force there to cause ANY fracture.
Judge Jeanine: Any fracture at all, let alone these fractures?
Dr. Baden: Right.'”
This is where I tell you that, while this adds up to me, it is still just a theory, as nothing has been proven in a court of law, yet.
Personally, I do not think Epstein had killed himself. He had all the information that the government should (in theory) want. Information that could likely cripple the power structure, and actually put those formerly ‘above the law’ in real jeopardy, of not only of their true characters being revealed, but prison time.
Epstein was in a great bargaining position with the intel he had. It seems likely to me that he could have rolled on the people involved in his sick and twisted crimes and ended up cutting another sweetheart deal for his cooperation.
It just does not add up. However, with the justice system as it is in the nation, do not hold your breath waiting for something to happen. Think about how sad it is that we live in a nation where you can not even trust Federal law enforcement. Thank goodness that Trump is cleaning out the DOJ and FBI of their political operatives.
