The man who reportedly introduced deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to former President Bill Clinton died last month, allegedly of suicide, and the timing is remarkable.
As previously reported, Mark Middleton, 59, was found on May 7th “hanging from a tree with a shotgun blast through his chest and a cheap Dollar Tree-type extension cord around his neck,” according to Radar Online.

The timing is remarkable because the Alabama-based ABC journalist who broke the story exactly six years ago about former President Bill Clinton secretly meeting with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch at a Sky Harbor Airport tarmac in Phoenix mysteriously died allegedly of suicide exactly one year ago.
“Veteran TV newsman and former University of Alabama football player Christopher Sign died Saturday morning in an apparent suicide, according to police. At 8:13 a.m. Saturday, the Hoover 911 center received a call of a person down at a residence on Scout Trace. Hoover police and fire personnel arrived to find the 45-year-old Sign dead, AL.com reported on Sunday, June 12th, 2021.
His death was reportedly investigated as a suicide, though rumors and speculation immediately began brewing on social media over his connection to the Clintons:

AL.com noted that at the time of Clinton and Lynch’s meeting in June of 2016, Sign was working at the Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV.
His reporting was pivotal because the meeting occurred amid the Department of Justice’s investigation into Clinton’s wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Furthermore, only days after the meeting, the DOJ suddenly announced that it wouldn’t be pursuing any charges against his wife.
After Sign’s report emerged, Lynch claimed the meeting had been “primarily social” and that there had been “no discussion of any matter pending for the department or any matter pending for any other body.”
She nevertheless faced heavy criticism for the meeting and was asked to recuse herself from the Clinton case. She refused.
There were ultimately no consequences for the private meeting, just as there were no consequences for Hillary Clinton.
As for Sign, four years after the meeting, he released a book about it pithily titled “Secret on the Tarmac.”
“The plan was perfect. No cameras, no microphones, no prying eyes and plenty of security. The setting for a clandestine meeting could not have been better. Former President Bill Clinton exited Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s private plane 20-minutes after he boarded. Both thought they got away with it. Both were wrong. Amid a heated Presidential race, federal investigations involving emails and Benghazi and society looking for clarity on the future of the country, the secret tarmac meeting would only complicate things. The secret meeting would have never been revealed if it weren’t for a veteran journalist and a trusted source,” the book’s Amazon description reads.
“It wasn’t the Emmys, Murrows or Associated Press awards, it was decades of experience and relationships that led to the moment Christopher Sign broke the story of the secret tarmac meeting. His former teammates and coaches at the University of Alabama would play a personal and critical role after breaking the story. From politics to football, to friendship and journalism, this is the unfiltered story of the secret tarmac meeting. Christopher takes you behind the scenes for a step by step account of how it all unfolded in the summer of 2016 on a blazing tarmac. Details revealed for the first time, the process, the questions of sabotage, the attempt at a coverup and the source who saw it all. Take a ride and tackle The Secret Tarmac Meeting.”
Speaking about the book during a Feb. 17th, 2020 appearance on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Sign revealed that he’d received death threats over his reporting.
“My family received significant death threats shortly after breaking this story. Credit cards hacked. You know, my children, we have code words. We have secret code words that they know what to do. That’s why I came back to WBMA, ABC 33/40 in Birmingham because when I was enduring the death threats, it was my former Alabama football family and my teammates and coaches who circled around me,” he said.
Speaking of WBMA, the station where he was working when he died, his colleagues originally expressed disbelief over his death by alleged suicide:
I can’t believe we have an article with this title. It doesn’t feel real. We were in the office together last night cutting up like we always do.
I don’t understand why. I can’t talk about you in the past tense. The grief today is unbearable.https://t.co/iL3vFvG4DS

I can’t process this information. I’ve known Chris for 30 years and this doesn’t seem right.

His friends appeared to feel similarly:
I with you Steve. I’ve know Chris as one of my good friends for 32 years. This is the last thing I would have ever imagined. Something definitely does not feel right. My heart is broken and all my prayers are going out to his amazing family. ❤️

As noted earlier, rumors and speculation emerged immediately after Sign’s death — primarily because of the longstanding “Clinton body count” theory, which even has its own Wikipedia page.
The theory states that anyone who goes against the interests of the Clintons inevitably winds up dead, often because of an alleged suicide.
While it’s just a conspiracy theory, conservative radio show host Dan Bongino noted that it’s “strange” nevertheless how so many people in the Clintons’ circle inevitably wind up dead like this.
“Could this story have a perfectly normal, albeit tragic, explanation? It could. Anyone claiming otherwise should produce evidence. But I am suggesting it’s getting quite odd, isn’t it? People in the Clintons’ circle—it’s strange,” he said, according to The Daily Beast.
Radio show host Charlie Kirk took it even further.
“In a segment on Sign’s death, talk radio host Charlie Kirk read out a list of other supposed victims of the ‘Clinton body count’ and suggested ‘If you have any information about the Clintons, I recommend you get a bodyguard,'” The Daily Beast noted.
