The death of Mark Middleton, a former special advisor to President Bill Clinton, has been shrouded in mystery since his body was found last May at the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas.
However, details of his death have now been revealed, raising more questions than answers.
According to the police report, Middleton, 59, was found with a gunshot wound to his chest and an extension cord tied around his neck and attached to a tree, The Daily Mail reports.
His body and car were found at the Heifer Ranch, an hour west of Little Rock, after a worker discovered his abandoned black BMW SUV.
Deputy Jeremy Lawson, who was called to the scene, stated that Middleton’s body was found sitting near a tree with a rope tied around his neck and an apparent gunshot wound to his chest.
Despite a search of Middleton’s vehicle, no weapon was found, only three boxes of buckshot and a gun case.
The release of the report was initially held up after members of Middleton’s family petitioned a judge to prevent pictures from the scene being made public.
The judge eventually ruled that details of the report could be released but without any accompanying photographs.
Middleton was a special advisor to President Bill Clinton in the 1990s and had signed Jeffrey Epstein into the White House on seven of the 17 times the late pedophile visited.
He was also a passenger on Epstein’s private jet, known as the “Lolita Express.”
In recent years, he had been working for his family’s HVAC business in Little Rock.
While the police report ruled Middleton’s death as suicide, the circumstances surrounding his death have raised questions.
