A second bizarre death has been linked to the mysterious Arkansas suicide of the former presidential advisor who introduced President Bill Clinton to billionaire perv Jeffrey Epstein – and only Radar has the shocking details of the rapidly growing body count.
Ashley Haynes, 47, was found drowned in the Arkansas River with an extension cord knotted to her ankle and attached to a concrete block --just months before businessman Mark Middleton’s body was discovered hanging from a tree with the same style electrical cord wrapped around his neck and a close-range shotgun blast through his chest.
A stunned business associate who knew Middleton and is calling for an independent investigation into his May 7th death tells RadarOnline.com, that it’s beyond coincidence that Haynes, 47, had visited Clinton’s now-dead pal’s office to discuss a financial matter.
“I saw her in Mark’s office!” the business associate tells RadarOnline.com. “I was leaving and he (Middleton) was telling me that he had a very important financial meeting – and that’s the woman who came in!”
“I don’t know if there is anything connection there or not, but I know that it was shocking to me to hear she drowns while paddling in the Arkansas River,” the source said. “Then Mark mysteriously dies a few months later?”
Haynes, a mother of two from the Little Rock suburb of Maumelle, vanished on Jan. 12 after leaving a note on her kitchen island counter stating “on the water, love you all.” She was last seen by a local resident paddle boarding in a wetsuit, according to the police report obtained by RadarOnline.com.
After a massive search, her corpse was discovered four days later by a family friend – submerged in 10 feet of water!
“Mrs. Haynes had a bag strapped to her leg with a green extension cord,” states the police report. “Inside the bag was a large concrete block that measured 16x16x4.”
A source close to Haynes, who worked for a charitable group to feed and clothe the homeless, tells Radar the 110-pound former model turned yoga teacher, would have never taken her own life – let alone paddleboard down the river lugging a 58-pound concrete suicide block!
“It didn’t make any sense, she would never kill herself,” the Haynes source said. “When I heard she went missing I knew instantly it was foul play. I don’t believe she killed herself. How could she water paddle down the river with a concrete block!”
The source did not know if Haynes knew or associated Middleton.
Just like Middleton, Haynes allegedly suffered from depression, and both their deaths were determined to be “suicide” by investigators even though neither left a tell-tale suicide note.
Middleton’s death is equally baffling.
Clinton’s former presidential campaign finance director was found hanging from a tree with a cheap Dollar Store-type extension cord around his neck after trespassing on a farm with a table to construct makeshift gallows.
“Everyone that I know here, that has worked with Mark, knows it is physically impossible for Mark to have killed himself,” Middleton’s business associate tells RadarOnline.com.
Middleton and Haynes are part of a growing list of corpses linked to Clinton and Epstein, who was found hanging inside his New York jail cell in 2019 while awaiting sex trafficking charges.
The others include Epstein’s closest associate Jean-Luc Brunel, the 76-year-old French modeling scout turn pimp who was found hanging inside his Paris, France jail cell; and Clinton/Epstein pal Steve Bing, 55, who allegedly committed suicide by falling from a 27-story Los Angeles building in 2020.
The business associate tells Radar Middleton was actively engaged in financial investments with the same Little Rock characters who allegedly worked with John Glasgow, the chief financial officer of CDI Contractors Inc., the lead firm that constructed the Clinton library.
Glasgow vanished without a trace in 2008 after reporting financial irregularities with the Clinton library construction costs and his skeletal remains were found at Petit Jean State Park in 2015. His cause of death is undetermined.
Attempts to reach the families of Middleton, Haynes and Glasgow were unsuccessful.
