Former New York City chief medical examiner Michael Baden will conduct an independent autopsy on George Floyd following his death after being pinned by a Minneapolis police officer.
Dr. Michael Baden, who previously conducted an independent autopsy of Jeffrey Epstein, will do the examination after the family takes Floyd’s body back from the state, their lawyer said Friday.
“We’re going to take custody back of his body, and we’re bringing in Dr. Michael Baden to perform an independent autopsy,” the attorney, Ben Crump, said at a news conference, 1010 WINS reported.
“The family does not trust anything coming from the Minneapolis Police Department. How can they?” Crump added.
Baden is a celebrity medical examiner who previously testified at the OJ Simpson murder trial and conducted an independent examination of Epstein following his suicide last august.
He hosts “Autopsy” on HBO and also conducted an autopsy on Mike Brown, the teenager shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.
Ex-cop Derek Chauvin was arrested Friday and hit with a murder charge in the killing of Floyd.
A viral video shows Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck after the cop and several other officers stopped him Monday in the Midwestern city for allegedly passing a counterfeit bill at a local shop.
