Once again, there is some mystery around the death of one of Bill Clinton’s allies. Last May, Mark Middleton, a former top adviser for Clinton died. He was 59 years old.
This special assistant to Clinton was a finance director on his presidential campaign. He also was responsible for signing in Jeffrey Epstein into the White House seven of the 17 times he visited there, and he was a passenger on Epstein’s jet.
But his exit from the White House didn’t go well in February 1995. The White House accused him of abusing his access to impress his business clients.
There was an investigation and he was barred from the executive mansion without senior approval. He denied that he had done anything wrong.
There are new details about his death coming out. It had been ruled a suicide, but the sheriff’s report raises some questions.
The family had petitioned to stop the release of photos of the scene. A judge ruled that the details could be released, but not the photos.
Middleton was found dead on the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas. His abandoned SUV was found by a worker on the ranch and the police were called.
According to the Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremy Lawson: “I could see what at first appeared to be a man sitting near a tree, as my eyes focused better, I could see a rope of some type going from the tree limb to the male.”
Lawson said it was clear that Middleton was dead.
“I could see that he had a gunshot wound to the chest and that he had a knot tied in an extension cord that was around his neck and it was attached to the limb directly above him.”
The deputy said that when Middleton and his vehicle were searched, there was buckshot, and a gun case, but no gun.
How do you shot yourself without a gun?
Just another mysterious death around the Clintons.
