Dr. Michael Baden, the doctor that recently conducted an autopsy of George Floyd and concluded that he died of asphyxiation, has a very interesting past of being involved in the investigations in some of the most famous deaths in recent US history. Not only was he recently called upon to perform and autopsy on George Floyd, but during his five-decade career has covered some pretty high profile cases and been involved in the investigations of Jeffrey Epstein, the OJ Simpson murders, the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and JFK, as well as Michael Brown, who was killed in Ferguson, Missouri, which started riots in looting there.

Heavy reported of Baden:
Dr. Michael Baden was born in The Bronx in 1934 and graduated from New York University and the New York University School of Medicine. He worked as the chief medical examiner for the City of New York from 1978 to 1979. Baden was removed by Mayor Ed Koch under a cloud of controversy, according to an article in The New York Times from 1979.
Baden was removed after complaints made by Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau and Health Commissioner Reinaldo Ferrer, but he denied their charges of sloppy record-keeping, poor judgment and lack of cooperation and accusations that he revealed publicly that Governor Nelson Rockefeller died during sexual intercourse. Others in the criminal justice world in New York City at the time criticized the move to remove Baden.
“He is too independent, that’s the only slam on the guy. He cannot be leaned on and he has tremendous integrity,” Robert Tanenbaum, a former Manhattan district attorney’s office staffer, told The Times. “And so in the mentality of the New York establishment, he can’t be trusted.”
Dr. Baden has quite an interesting history, doesn’t he?
