The autopsy report has been revealed for Jeffrey Epstein. So, did Jeffrey Epstein commit suicide? Despite an official ruling that he killed himself, there are telltale signs of a homicide in this investigation.
Epstein was found dead in his Manhattan federal prison cell in August. Dr. Michael Baden is a New York City medical examiner whose medical career has spanned five decades. He made this bombshell claim that is certain to reignite the suspicions that Epstein did not commit suicide.
Baden was hired by Epstein's brother. He told Fox News that the findings are more consistent with homicide than suicide. There were two fractures on the left and right sides of his larynx. Baden 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
“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” Baden said to Fox News.
While there is not enough information for this to be considered conclusive, the three fractures that happened to Epstein are "rare. Baden has investigated cases including O.J. Simpson, President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, record producer Phil Spector, New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez and many others.
“I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case,” the 85-year-old medical legend said to Fox News.
More on the Story from Fox News:
Baden, who's examined more than 20,000 bodies and hosted HBO's "Autopsy," explained that if a person weighed 120 pounds and their head weighed 10 pounds, there would be 110 pounds of pressure on the neck at the jaw during a hanging. But, if someone put a hand around a person's neck and squeezed, that could double or even triple the pressure on the neck, Baden said.
There were also hemorrhages in Epstein’s eyes that were common in homicidal strangulation and uncommon, though not unheard of, in suicidal hangings, the forensic pathologist said.
“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 said.

It's pretty crazy we are expected to believe he committed himself. He had a lot of people nervous and the easy solution was to just have him killed.
