Michael Baden Career

Baden served as the City of New York’s chief medical examiner from 1978 to 1979 but was fired by Mayor Ed Koch after receiving complaints about his work, including memos from district attorney Robert Morgenthau and city health commissioner Reinaldo Ferrer, criticizing Baden for “sloppy record-keeping, poor judgment, and a lack of cooperation.

Robert Tanenbaum, Baden’s former lawyer, defended his autopsy methods in 1979, while also admitting his lack of collaboration with the New York establishment.  Baden later won a wrongful termination lawsuit for $100,000.

Baden was appointed as a deputy medical examiner for Suffolk County after that, but he was fired for reportedly making inappropriate remarks on how to perform the ideal murder. He was quoted in Oui Magazine as outlining how to get away with “high tech murder,” although Baden rejected the claim.  The decision to fire him has reversed shortly after because the facts surrounding his claimed remarks were unclear, but Baden elected to leave the job anyhow.
