Deposition of Dr. Baden by Defense Attorney Mauricio Padilla
During this first degree case, criminal defense attorney Mauricio Padilla worked closely with legendary forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden.
Dr. Michael Baden is the former Chief Medical Examiner of New York City and past Director of the New York State Police Medico‐Legal Investigations Unit. He has been a medical examiner for fty‐five years and has performed more than 20,000 autopsies. He is the Forensic Science Contributor for FOX National News and is a reviewer for the New England Journal of Medicine.
During the course of the case Mr. Padilla worked with Dr. Baden and with the late Daniel Schumaker, one of the nation's leading crime scene reconstructionist.
Daniel was a Forensic Crime Scene re-creator and was the owner and President of Contrast Forensics in Walnut Creek, California. He was one of the first people to use laser technology in crime scene re-creation in the country, and was always thinking of new and innovative ways to improve crime scene technology. His company was the only Reconstruction Company in the United States with Wireless Motion Capture Capabilities for the most accurate reconstruction and was the first company in the United States to get Wireless Motion Capture Reconstruction admitted into court.
Mr. Padilla specifically handled all portions of the murder trial related to forensic evidence and crime scene reconstruction.
Case is currently on appeal.
