According to the local sheriff, a shotgun was discovered near the body of the Clinton White House aide who according to report took his own life in Arkansas. Further information regarding how law enforcement officials think Mark Middleton committed suicide has also been revealed.

Police report into Clinton aide mysterious death rules he died by suicide

The police report states that Middleton was discovered with a gunshot wound to his chest, reported Daily Mail on Wednesday. His body and car were found in Arkansas.

Initially, documents released by Perry County Sheriff Scott Montgomery stated that deputies, who were summoned to the Heifer Ranch in Perryville after an abandoned BMW SUV was found there, reported that there was no gun in the vehicle.

However, a new set of documents released to Daily Mail now reveal that a Stoeger 12-gauge coach gun was discovered on the ground 30 feet away from Middleton’s body.

Sergeant Keenan Carter provided a comprehensive explanation in the new papers of how he believes Middleton went to great lengths to guarantee his suicide attempt was successful.

Middleton had texted his wife that he found the perfect place for a nap

The adviser sent a text to his wife, Rhea, saying he had “found a perfect place for a nap in the sun,” the report stated.

Middleton said in the note to his wife: ‘Going to rest for a while,’ he added: ‘You are a great Mom and wife babe. Please be happy today and get some sun. It will make you feel better. I love you.’ He signed off on the text with a heart emoji.

Nine months after the death of Middleton, the disturbing incident has been disclosed.

The advisor was found hanging from a tree with a gunshot wound to his chest at Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas. An extension cord was tied around his neck and connected to a tree.

However, the recent release of the sheriff’s report concludes that Middleton committed suicide, the DailyMail reported.

Middleton’s family members’ appeal to a judge caused the delay in the report. They feared the disclosure of graphic images from the scene. However, the judge eventually permitted the release of details from the report, excluding photographs.

Lawson describes how he found out Middleton’s body

Perry County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremy Lawson authored the report. He described how he was alerted to the situation by his employee Samantha McElroy.

McElroy had discovered Middleton’s black BMW SUV abandoned at the ranch before investigating the nearby cottage.

‘Almost immediately after stepping around the corner of the cottage she started yelling,’ wrote Lawson.

‘Upon reaching the back of the cottage she pointed towards the rear of the property and asked if that was a person.

‘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.”

During the investigation, the deputy mentioned that a search of Middleton’s vehicle discovered three boxes of buckshot and a gun case.

These details provide additional perspective on the death of Middleton. He was a married father of two daughters aged 18 and 20. His body was discovered on May 7th 2022.
