Former Nave Seal, and guest on Fox News, Mike Ritland, states on camera “Epstein didn’t kill himself.” Ritland, who was on the show to discuss his Warrior Dog Foundation, and the heroism of dogs like Conan, the Belgian Malinois,wounded as he helped take down Isis leader AL Baghdadi.
Ritland, who fought in Operation Iraqi Freedom, started the Warrior Dog Foundation “with the sole purpose of giving back to the Special Operations K-9 Community,” his website says.
“The Warrior Dog Foundation helps to transition these K-9 heroes from an operational environment into our state-of-the-art kennel facility,” it says, treating each with “dignity and grace” for the rest of their lives.
The foundation also wants to start a scholarship fund for the families of handlers who are wounded or killed, as well as start a museum for service dogs.
Jeffrey Epstein’s death in his Manhattan lockup in August has long sparked conspiracy theories — which were heightened last Wednesday when famed pathologist Dr. Michael Baden claimed the politically-connected moneyman was killed.
“I think that the evidence points toward homicide rather than suicide,” Baden, who monitored the autopsy on behalf of Epstein’s brother, insisted on Fox News.
However, the city’s chief medical examiner, Dr. Barbara Sampson, dismissed his claims later the same day.
“Our investigation concluded that the cause of Mr. Epstein’s death was hanging and the manner of death was suicide,” Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson said in a statement. “We stand by the determination.”
