Nine months after his death, the truth about the scenario in which a top aide to former President Bill Clinton aide was reportedly discovered hung from a tree with a gunshot wound to his chest has now been disclosed.
Yet, the sheriff’s investigation into Mark Middleton’s unusual death raises more questions than answers, as it concludes that he committed suicide despite not being able to find the weapon that allegedly killed him.
Middleton, 59, was discovered dead at the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas, about an hour west of Little Rock, last May.
The report on Middleton’s death was reportedly delayed when members of his family petitioned a judge.
They were reportedly concerned that images from the gruesome scene would be made public.
The judge ultimately determined that while facts may be disseminated, images could not.
According to the complaint, Perry County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremy Lawson was sent to the property by worker Samantha McElroy, who discovered Middleton’s abandoned black BMW Vehicle.
A search of Middleton’s car yielded three boxes of buckshot and a pistol case, but no weapon, according to the deputy.
The deputy also described the scene of Middleton’s death, observing that he had received a gunshot would to the chest and that an extension cord had been tied around his neck and was attached to a tree limb.
In spite of the bizarre circumstances of his death, Middleton’s death was ruled a suicide.
Middleton was Bill Clinton’s special advisor in the 1990s, and he signed Jeffrey Epstein into the White House seven of the 17 times the late pedophile visited.
Middleton also travelled aboard Epstein’s plane, called the ‘Lolita Express’. He had most recently worked for his family’s HVAC company in Little Rock.
