Update: Baden's autopsy finished

Justice Department investigating teenager's death orders
Aug 17, 2014


Dr. Michael Baden performed an autopsy on the body of a teenager, whose killing in Ferguson, Mo., Aug. 9 sparked days of riot and unrest and a backlash against the local police department, according to the New York Times. 

Baden, A New York State pathologist and high-profile expert, has been involved in two local cases: The jailhouse death in August 2007 of Craig Burdine in the Sandusky County jail and the March 2012 death of Jacob Limberios.

The Sandusky County Sheriff's Office and the Fremont police allegedly botched investigations of both cases, but Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine found no criminal wrongdoing after separate investigations and two grand juries.

The autopsy performed Sunday by Baden was conducted on behalf of the family of Michael Brown, who was unarmed when he was killed by a Ferguson police officer.

The cop shot this kid 6 times? Really? Twice to the head. Really?


One shot was in the TOP of his head!


Pretty damning autopsy. That will be tough to explain I think.

Remember all the idiots that said Dr. Baden, a New York State pathologist and high-profile expert, was a quack over his findings in the Sandusky County cases of Craig Burdine and Jacob Limberios? They'll probably say it again about this.
