An investigation into the mysterious death of former President Bill Clinton’s adviser Mark Middleton has been reopened, but the details of his death have been muzzled by a lawsuit brought forward by his family.
59-year-old Middleton, a longtime special adviser for Clinton while he was president, was found hanging from a tree with a shotgun blast to the chest in early May at the Heifer Ranch outside Perryville, Arkansas.
“I don’t know the man, and I don’t why he picked our county or picked that location to commit suicide. To our knowledge, he had never been there before, and we have no record of him being there before,” Perry County Sheriff Scott Montgomery told the Daily Mail.
“He died from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the chest. He found a tree and he pulled a table over there, and he got on that table, and he took an extension cord and put it around a limb, put it around his neck and he shot himself in the chest with a shotgun,” he said.
“It was very evident that the shotgun worked because there was not a lot of blood or anything on the scene. You can tell the shotgun blast was on his chest, you can tell that because there is a hole in the chest and pellets came out the back of his back. It was definitely self-inflicted in our opinion.”
In the 1990s, Middleton served as a “conduit” between Clinton and the late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, having arranged at least 7 of the 17 visits Epstein made to the White House, and flew on the Lolita Express several times himself, according to the Daily Mail.
A source reportedly confirmed to Radar Online that Middleton was found hanging from a tree by an extension cord with a close-range shotgun blast through his chest, and likely did not commit suicide.
