Expert pathologist says Jeffrey Epstein's death looks more like a homicide
"I think that the evidence points towards homicide rather than suicide".
Famed pathologist Michael Baden has said that after examining the body of Jeffrey Epstein, the evidence points towards a homicide, rather than a suicide.
Baden was speaking about his findings on Fox News on Wednesday, and said that he believes a "homicidal strangulation" is more likely than a suicide.
He said: "They took fingernail clippings to see if there's anybody else's DNA on them, and that hasn't been released. Neither has the information about who's DNA is on the ligature."
He said that the chances of two prison guards falling asleep are "extremely unlikely", and that he's never seen anything like that in 50 years of investigating prison deaths.
He also stressed that "a number of people had to be involved if this was a homicide."

Baden is a well-known pathologist, and was chief medical examiner of the City of New York from 1978 to 1979.
He examined the death of JFK, and also testified at the OJ Simpson trial.
Epstein died three months ago, in his prison cell while awaiting trial for a number of sexual offences.
Reports emerged at the time which suggested that he was not being closely monitored before his death, and had been "left alone."
