A former Clinton White House aide was found dead on May 2, 2022, and the death has now officially been ruled a suicide, despite the lack of a gun found near the body and the aide’s ties to Jefferey Epstein.
Mark Middleton was 59 when he was found last May tied to a tree with an extension cord around his neck and a shotgun wound to the chest in Perryville, Arkansas.
Middleton worked as an aide for former President Bill Clinton during the 90s when he helped sign Jeffrey Epstein into the White House for official visits with Bill Clinton on 7 out of the 17 documented occasions when Epstein visited Clinton.
The Los Angeles Times reported in 1995 that Middleton was forced to resign from the White House following reports he abused his position in the White House to impress potential business clients.
Middleton also raised potential ethics violations after he reportedly talked to the ruling Nationalist Party in Taiwan about the possibility of sending an illegal $15 million contribution to the Democrat Party.
According to the LA Times report, Middleton had access to and entered the White House complex 65 times in 1995, between February and September.
The official ruling of suicide comes despite a gun not being found within 10 yards of the scene. The Daily Mail reports that a firearm WAS discovered, although it was more than 30 feet away from Middleton.
“I could see the male was obviously deceased,” Deputy Jeremy Lawson said in his report.
“I could see that he had a gunshot wound to the chest, and that he had knot tied in an extension cord that was wrapped around his neck, and it was attached to the limb directly above him,” Deputy Lawson’s report continued.
Epstein was found dead hanging in his New York City jail cell in August 2019, which was infamously ruled a “suicide” after surveillance cameras in the prison conveniently went dark at the time of his death.
