Michael Baden Career As a Pathologist
Between 1978 and 1979, Baden served as the City of New York’s top medical examiner. However Koch, the mayor of New York City, suspended him from his job after receiving criticism for his performance.
Among the concerns were memoranda from the city’s health commissioner Reinaldo Ferrer and district attorney Robert Morgenthau criticizing Baden for “poor records management, poor judgment, and a lack of teamwork.”
Similarly, he was employed by Suffolk County as a deputy medical examiner before being fired for reportedly making offensive remarks regarding how to execute the ideal murder.
He was quoted in Oui Magazine as explaining how to commit “high tech murder,” although Baden vehemently denied it.
The decision to fire him was then reversed because the details surrounding his alleged comments were unclear, but Baden nevertheless made the decision to leave the job.
Some of his views have drawn criticism, particularly when he disagreed with the county coroner’s conclusions. Sarah Weinmann, a journalist for New York Magazine, described Baden as a “celebrity pathologist.”
