The 45-year-old television journalist who broke the story about former President Bill Clinton’s secret meeting with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch on a tarmac in Arizona in 2016 has been found dead in an apparent suicide.
According to the Daily Mail, police were summoned to a home in Hoover, Alabama at 8:13 a.m. on Saturday morning regarding a person down. Officers discovered the death of Christopher Sign, a former University of Alabama football player and experienced broadcast journalist with Birmingham’s ABC TV affiliate WBMA-LD when they arrived on the scene. His death is being examined as a suicide, according to reports.

In 2016, Sign was the one who broke the story about Clinton meeting Lynch on her private plane at Phoenix Airport. Their conversation was thought to be about an ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while Secretary of State. Both Clinton and Lynch attempted to depict the call as a casual talk, but eyebrows were raised when the FBI decided not to press criminal charges against Hillary, who was in the midst of her presidential campaign, just a few days later.
After emails were discovered on a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, the former congressman and spouse of senior Clinton adviser Huma Abedin, the probe was reopened less than two weeks before the 2016 presidential election. In late October, then-FBI Director James Comey delivered a letter to Congress announcing the reopening of the investigation, which was then terminated just two days before the election. Hillary lost the election to Trump, with some speculating that Comey’s letter to Congress came at the wrong time, costing her the presidency.
Since 2017, Sign has worked as an anchor for Birmingham’s ABC 33/40 television station.
