The “mysterious” death of Clinton-Epstein associate Mark Middleton may have been ruled suicide, but rumours that he was murdered are clearly not going away
“I’m not saying the Clintons kill people, I’m saying a lot of people around the Clintons turn up dead” remarked early Bill Clinton associate turned critic Larry Nichols after five people associated with them died in bizarre circumstances between 22nd June and 2nd August 2016.
Now, in spite of Zachary Stieber of The Epoch Times last week revealing that the death of the Bill Clinton aide Mark Middleton has now been officially ruled a suicide, suggestions that he was instead murdered are now again being recirculated by some with grave suspicions about this odd case.
59-year-old father of two Middleton – who was responsible for admitting Jeffrey Epstein to the White House on seven of the seventeen occasions the since croaked paedophile visited between 1993 and 1995 – is described on Wikipedia as having been an “Arkansas business leader, mutual friend of Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein, and former finance director for Clinton’s presidential campaign and later special assistant to Clinton.” He was found dead on 7th May 2022 at the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas, an hour west of Little Rock.
Before he died, Middleton, who was also assistant to Clinton chief of staff Thomas F. ‘Mack’ McLarty, is said to have texted his wife, Rhea. His messages supposedly told her that he had found “the perfect place for a nap in the sun.” He added: “You are a great mom and wide babe… Please be happy today and get some sun. It will make you feel better. I love you.”
Of how he was found, HITC later reported:
“He had a gunshot wound to the chest and an extension cord wrapped around his neck. The cord was tied to the limb of a tree directly above his body.”
“Upon searching Middleton’s vehicle, officials found three boxes of buckshot and a gun case, but no weapon.”
Going further and adding immediate mystery that aroused suspicion, the Daily Mail emphasised the “no sign of a weapon” story whilst Clinton.news argued the death to be “baffling.”
Middleton – who is known to have flown on Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ private jet on several occasions – left the White House in February 1995 and most recently worked for his family business in Little Rock. Of him, the DailyMail.com’s Daniel Bates alleged: “[He] was accused of setting himself up as an international deal-maker, exactly the kind of person that would appeal to Epstein… Middleton’s life in recent years was a world away from the power he enjoyed in the 1990s.”
Adding fuel to the fire of conspiracy last week, Bates added that the death scene was “grisly” and the method of death “mysterious.” He argued:
“The sheriff’s report into Mark Middleton’s mysterious death raises more questions than answers as it rules he died by suicide – despite no sign of the weapon that killed him.”
“Release of the report was held up after members of his family petitioned a judge. They were worried that pictures from the gory scene would be made public. The judge eventually ruled that details could be released but photographs could not.”
Middleton’s bizarre end continues to be discussed online. On the Wikipedia page devoted to the “Clinton body count conspiracy theory,” is a statement that reads: “The coroner’s report ruled the death a suicide even though he was tied to a tree and no weapon was found near the body.”
Countering this point, The Poynter Institute’s Politifact – which is funded by amongst others the billionaire Charles Koch and which was created by the Tampa Bay Times newspaper in 2007 – last week observed: “The family was ‘shocked’ by conspiracy theories that emerged Middleton’s death… We rate claims that a Clinton aide was murdered False.”
