According to the Perry County sheriff, a gun was found at the scene where Epstein connected aide to President Bill Clinton, Mark Middleton was found dead in an alleged suicide. This comes just one day after the originally released report claimed that a gun was not found at the scene.
According to documents made public by Sheriff Scott Montgomery of Perry County, law enforcement officials who responded to a report of an abandoned BMW SUV at Heifer Ranch in Perryville, located one hour west of Little Rock, explicitly stated that no firearm was discovered inside the vehicle.

But now a further set of papers has been released to DailyMail.com that says a weapon – a Stoeger 12-gauge coach gun – was found on the ground 30 feet from Middleton’s body.
In the new papers, Sergeant Keenan Carter gives a detailed explanation of how he believes Middleton – an aide who signed pedophile Jeffrey Epstein into the White House several times during Bill Clinton’s presidency – took great lengths to ensure his suicide bid was successful – after writing a text to his wife saying he had ‘found a perfect place for a nap in the sun.’
As reported on yesterday, Middleton was found dead at the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas back in May of 2022. The advisors death, who was found hanging from a tree with a gunshot would to his chest at the time, is now being ruled a suicide.
Middleton was highly connected and had signed Epstein into the White House multiple times.
The Daily Mail reported:
The grisly scene where a top Bill Clinton adviser was found hanged from a tree with a gunshot wound to his chest has finally been revealed nine months after he died.
But 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.
Middleton, 59, was found dead last May at the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas, an hour west of Little Rock.
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 original report was written by Perry County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremy Lawson who says he was called to the ranch where an abandoned BMW SUV was found.
“Almost immediately after stepping around the corner of the cottage she started yelling,” Lawson explained, talking about how he was met by ranch worker Samantha McElroy.
“Upon reaching the back of the cottage she pointed towards the rear of the property and asked if that was a person,” he continued.
“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.”
Lawson noted that it was obvious that Middleton was dead.
“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,” Lawson noted.
He specifically noted at the time that there was no gun at the scene.
According to the updated report, Middleton tied a cord around his neck and shot himself so the cord would kill him if the shotgun didn’t.
The shotgun was found 30-feed from his body “due to the recoil from the discharge and the height and angle of the ground” according to Carter.
In an alleged note to his wife Rhea, Middleton said: “Going to rest for a while. 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.”
Carter claims Middleton then pulled a bench over to the tree overlooking a valley.
“He stood on top of the bench and tied one end of the extension cord to a large limb of the tree and the other end around his neck.”
“It is believed that Mr. Middleton then took the firearm and placed the barrels against his chest and then reached out with his left hand and placed his first finger on the first trigger.”
“It is then believed that Mr. Middleton pulled the trigger on the firearm casing (sic) it to discharge and strike him in the chest and then he fell from the bench causing the extension cord to become tight cutting off his breathing.”
