A former New York City medical examiner revealed during a recent radio interview that the brother of the late Jeffrey Epstein is afraid his “life may also be in danger.”
Dr. Michael Baden, the medical expert hired by Mark Epstein to look into his brother’s death, shared his concerns with AM 970 host John Catsimatidis on Sunday.
“Mark, the brother, his concern is that he wants to know if it’s suicide, or if it’s homicide. Because, if it’s homicide, then his life may also be in danger,” Baden told Catsimatidis during a taping of “The Cats Roundtable.”
Circumstances surrounding the enigmatic, well-connected Jeffrey Epstein’s death have aroused suspicion and skepticism since he was found dead in his Manhattan jail cell on Aug. 10 while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges involving female minors.
“Because his brother knew too much, and, whoever [killed Jeffrey], might then think [Mark] knows too much, even though his life was entirely different than his brother’s,” Baden said during the radio show. “The brother who hired me to be present at the autopsy is concerned as to whether or not his life is in danger from this.”
A woman who has said she was Jeffery Epstein’s “sex slave” announced in mid-December she is not suicidal so people would know in case “something happens” to her.
In a Dec. 10 tweet, Virginia Giuffre said she had already told her therapist and doctor that she is “in no way, shape or form” suicidal and was now “making it publicly known. She went on to ask the public to take action if she were to die.
“If something happens to me- in the sake of my family do not let this go away and help me to protect them,” she said. “Too many evil people want to see me quieted.”
I am making it publicy known that in no way, shape or form am I sucidal. I have made this known to my therapist and GP- If something happens to me- in the sake of my family do not let this go away and help me to protect them. Too many evil people want to see me quiteted ? https://t.co/8463mPR6YU

“I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case”
Epstein, who was facing up to 45 years in prison on charges of sex trafficking girls as young as 14, was found unconscious in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City. He was pronounced dead that morning.
The New York City Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson officially ruled Epstein’s death a suicide in August.
But Baden, and others, have floated alternate theories.
In late October, he said during an appearance on Fox News that the findings of an autopsy conducted on the deceased financier are more consistent with homicide than suicide.
“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” Baden told a “Fox & Friends” panel. “I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case.”
On both the political left and right, social media users have pointed to Epstein’s former powerful friends as suspects in his death.
#ClintonBodyCount and #ClintonCrimeFamily were trending on Twitter in August along with a competing hashtag, TrumpBodyCount.
