(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) An investigation has been opened into the suspicious circumstances surrounding the suicide of an Arkansas businessman who may have been the missing link between former President Bill Clinton and pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein, who is presumed to have died by his own hand in 2019
Radar Online reported on Saturday that the wife and brother of Mark Middleton, who died at 59 in early May, have filed suit to obtain the details of his alleged suicide.
Middleton, one of Clinton’s Little Rock former advisers and fundraisers, was found hanging from a tree with a shotgun blast to the chest and an extension cord around his neck at a farm linked to Clinton, the Gateway Pundit reported.
“The cause of death was not immediately disclosed,” according to Pundit.
His family released a brief statement lamenting his passing but with no direct mention of his Clinton ties.
“The Middleton family has lost an inspiring and dedicated leader, as well as a son, brother, husband, and father,” they said. “Mark leaves behind a company that he helped build from the ground up alongside his family and was proud to run for the last 25 years.”
After serving as finance director for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, he became a special assistant to Clinton under the supervision of White House chief of staff Thomas “Mack” McLarty.
According to some accounts, it was Middleton who introduced Clinton to Epstein. Flight manifests indicate that Middleton, like Clinton, took several rides on Epstein’s notorious private jet, informally dubbed the Lolita Express.
Radar Online filed a Freedom of Information Act request demanding the Perry County Sheriff’s Department to provide copies of the police report and crime scene photos of his death at an 1,100-acre farm in Perryville, Ark.
However, Sheriff Scott Montgomery replied via email that the release of this information is impossible because what once was an open-and-shut case is an active investigation now.
“At this time this is an open investigation, and we are not releasing any information,” he said in a June 2nd email.
The Perry County coroner also refused to provide any information about Middleton’s case because of the open investigation.
Prior to Middleton’s death, another woman linked to him also was found dead of apparent suicide near the Arkansas River.
Ashley Haynes was found with an extension cord knotted to her ankle and attached to a concrete block after failing to return from a paddleboarding trip.
A business associate said she had recently been in “a very important financial meeting” with Middleton.
Her friends also doubted the suicide narrative, saying it was against her nature.
“It didn’t make any sense, she would never kill herself,” said one source close to her.
“When I heard she went missing I knew instantly it was foul play,” the source added. “I don’t believe she killed herself. How could she water paddle down the river with a concrete block!”
