Hypothetically speaking, if you were a detective and you came across a case of a deceased individual with a gunshot wound to the chest, an extension cord around his neck tied to a tree limb, and no weapon, would you conclude it was a suicide? No? Well, what if the Clintons were involved?
This is exactly what happened to Mark Middleton, who passed away last May. Middleton was
special advisor. Oh, and he also happened to sign
into the White House several times. No biggie.
Middleton was 59 years old at the time of his death. His body was discovered at the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas. Perry County Sheriff's Deputy Jeremy Lawson said of the scene,
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. 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 police searched Middleton's vehicle and discovered three boxes of buckshot and a gun case, but no weapon.
Apart from signing Epstein into the White House, Middleton also flew on Epstein's famed "Lolita Express". He left the White House in 1995 and was accused of making himself into an international deal-maker. A 1996 investigation found Middleton had abused his access to impress business clients and he was subsequently banned from the White House.
