Medical Examiner Says Jeffrey Epstein's Death Was Not a Suicide

Medical Examiner Says Jeffrey Epstein's Death Was Not a Suicide.

The financier and convicted sex offender was found dead in a jail cell in New York City on August 10.

At the time, Epstein was in prison related to charges of sex trafficking of minors.

His death has since been ruled a suicide by hanging.

Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired for an investigation by Epstein's family, disagrees.

Talking with 'Fox & Friends,' he says the death relates more to ligature homicidal strangulation.

Baden, a former medical examiner, says his reasoning is over Epstein's neck having broken bones.

Baden was at the autopsy for Epstein one day after the incident.

N.Y.C.

Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson is standing by her diagnosis.

Our investigation concluded that the cause of Mr. Epstein's death was hanging and the manner of death was suicide.

We stand by that determination, Dr. Barbara Sampson, via statement.

The original medical investigation was thorough and complete.

There is no reason for a second medical investigation by our office, Dr. Barbara Sampson, via statement.

Sampson added in the statement that her office is still sharing information with the investigation
