Christopher Sign, Alabama Anchor Who Broke Bill Clinton-Loretta Lynch 'Tarmac Meeting,' Received Death Threats Prior To Alleged Suicide
Christopher Sign -- known for exposing Bill Clinton's tarmac meeting with Loretta Lynch -- reportedly received death threats prior to his alleged suicide over the weekend.
The Alabama TV anchor was found dead at his home in Hoover on Saturday around 8:13 AM, and police are looking into a possible suicide.
Cops went to Christopher's Scout Trace home after receiving “a person down” call.
Christopher was only 45 years old, and left behind a wife and three children.
As news of his death broke, more information has come to light as to why he may have committed suicide.
Christopher made headlines when he exposed Clinton's meeting with Lynch back in 2016.
According to the TV anchor, the former President met with Lynch on her private jet in Phoenix amid the ongoing investigation into his wife Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while holding her position as Secretary of State.
Days after Clinton and Lynch's alleged meeting, the FBI decided not to hit Hillary with criminal charges.
While the story helped Christopher get notoriety as an anchor, it was not a positive for his personal life.
In February of last year, he opened up about his family receiving death threats following the explosive scandal.
He also told Fox News that his credit cards had been hacked.
"My family received significant death threats shortly after breaking this story," Sign said during the interview to promote his book on the scandal that the titled Secret on the Tarmac.
Revealing that he and his wife gave their children "secret code words" just in case anything were to happen, Sign told Fox News, "they know what to do."
"That's why I came back to... Birmingham because when I was enduring the death threats it was my former Alabama football family - my teammates, my coaches - who circled around me," he said.
Clinton and Lynch later described their meeting as an impromptu friendly conversation among friends.
Lynch claimed she spoke with Clinton about his grandchildren and Brexit, and even claimed she had a staffer who could back her up.
But not everyone bought it.
"We knew something had occurred that was a bit unusual. It was a planned meeting. It was not a coincidence," Sign said in an interview about the meeting.
Donald Trump later tweeted, "Does anybody really believe that Bill Clinton and the U.S.A.G. talked only about 'grandkids' and golf for 37 minutes in plane on tarmac?"
