The world's most famous pathologist, Dr. Michael Baden, is all but convinced someone strangled Jeffrey Epstein, revealing never-before-seen evidence.

The New York Post's Lee Brown and Yaron Steinbuch report:

Among them are the burst capillaries and the fact that Epstein's lower extremities were pale and not purple or bluish, which he said would have been the case had he hanged himself in August at the Manhattan Correctional Center.

"The blood settles after we die. The so-called lividity, if you're hanging, the lividity is on the lower part on the legs. These would be like maroon/purple, front and back and they aren't," Baden tells Dr. Mehmet Oz.


"In a hanging, the arteries and the blood vessels, the veins are both clogged off and the person is pale. The face is pale," Baden replies.

"With a manual strangulation, there's a backup of a pressure and the little capillaries can rupture and they're best seen in the eye," he adds. 

Doctors discovered Epstein's hyoid bone was broken in three places, which Baden told 60 Minutes is unheard of in suicides. 

The New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner stands "firmly" behind its conclusion that Epstein killed himself by tying one end of a prison bedsheet around his neck and the other end around a bed railing before asphyxiating himself by kneeling forward.
